As illustrator, he has collaborated with some of the most important publishing houses as Everest, SM, Anaya, Kalandraka, Sotelo Blanco, Círculo de lectores, Biblos, Combel…He has created, with Chinto (Pinto and Chinto), the comic character Tito Longueirón, who after going out weekly in the supplement of humor Xatentendo.com, in a little time has turned into one of the series with more success among the readers of tales. So much it is so his adventures have been exported to other publications as Tretzevents. Also there has realized illustrations for the magazines El Virus Mutante, Golfiño, BD Banda, Tretzevents, ECO, and Sapoconcho. He took part in numerous national and international exhibitions. From 2004, he has started his career as a painter, showing interest to look for new horizons in the area of plastic arts and design and his works have already travelled around different cities in several exhibitions.
The illustrations that I present here are like a journey through time and space. The works were made for the spanish magazine Leer to promote literature in the summer and at Christmas. The technique used is the ink coloured by computer, with which the picture gets a dynamic and much closer view.The result is a reminiscence of comics and cartoons that he usually done with Chinto but with large doses of nostalgia, fixing the details: violins, bikes, coffee shops, books, windows … which create a bohemian landscape and places where no time passes. They are in our memory or in our travels, as a postcard we sent our memories and we are always excited every time we see them.
He has a very well known web: http://www.davidpintor.com and also a Facebook page. There he presents his new works and illustrated books. He always try to experiment different topics, textures and media, as we may see in his videos: urban murals, storytellers, brief films with music…all is possible to communicate and to create a new environment, playing with our imagination.
