    Presenting the unmistakeable style of Carlos Meglia. Born in the city of Quilmes, Argentina, Meglia began his career in illustration way back in 1974. Early on in his career he joined Hanna-Barbera Studios, where he worked on cartoon series including The Smurfs, The Flinstones, and Scooby Doo. Steadily moving into comics, it was not until he partnered with famous Argentinian writer, Carlos Trillo, to work on titles Irish Coffee and in most notably Cybersix where Meglia really made waves in the industry. Cybersix itself bringing about both a live action television and animated series.

    By the mid-90s Carlos Meglia was working heavily with the US comic publishers. Such as Dark Horse, on their titles Star Wars and Spyboy, DC’s Superman/Tarzan: Sons of the Jungle, Adventures of Superman, as well as Marvel’s Elektra. In 2005, along with Belgian comic artist Didier Crisse, Meglia released the series Canari. Cybersix and Canari are some of his flagship works, however, my favourite English-language comics of Meglia are his Superman titles.

    Spanish illustrator Rafa Alvarez has an impressive selection of works on his website. I like the way he sometimes uses coloured ink lines, almost like those in many animated films. There are nice strokes in his lines too. He has a good knack for well thought out editorial illustrations as well as advertising posters and comic strips.

    Rafa’s clients include Playboy Magazine, Etihad Airways and American Express. He has published graphic novels and children’s books and is currently working on interactive ebooks for the iPad.
