mDonada is a graphic designer and illustrator from Madrid, Spain. After being submerged in piles of paper, pens, cartoons and drawings in 1996 he builds a bigger spaceship and cross the sky of graphic design, a trip that has taken him to live a bunch of amazing adventures, reaching hundreds of different planets and stars and creating several constellations of joy.
Coming from the DIY independent scene (under the name of LeCadavre – no longer used-) has made him understand design in special way and it has made him develop a unique style inside the industry. A world that has made him navigate in a lot of different levels working for music labels, editorials, bands, commercials, TV channels, magazines…even for the Spanish Embassy in Ethiopia and appearing in books as a promising graphic designer along with an example of his work.
This self-taught artist has been named by the El Pais newspaper one of the most important Spanish young artist in 1999 and has never stopped walking up the ladder ever since, searching new techniques and investigating new ways of twisting the real world and turn it into a new visual artifact.
Nowadays, mDonada, keeps traveling, experimenting and defeating shapes, colors and ideas brought together to your eyes to explode like firecrackers.
Influenced especially by early Hanna Barbera, old cartoons and TV shows from the unique and exceptional world of Sid & Marty Kroft. mDonada began creating his own creatures and drawings, building a universe full of emotions, colors and unbelievable impact, putting together a big circle of fantasy and imaginary characters which freely move in a magical world and enchanting fairy-tales.
After studying traditional cartoon animation at Escuela Superior De Dibujo Profesional and working for Cartoon Network, he soon decided to follow a different mysterious path by himself. Since he considered this necessary to continue to evolve and make his own world look better and more powerful, he embarked on a never-ending plan of a self extraordinary kingdom. He began developing his vision of an ideal planet, giving birth to hundreds of different personages that gallop like crazy horses around his sketchbooks, paintings, comics, silk-screens…etc, happily furious and strong in imaginary lands under the perspective of his multicolored wonderful prism.
His work, in a short time period, has taken him and his art to several main cultural cities such as Los Angeles, Lisbon, Roma, Berlin, Barcelona, Madrid, Chicago…giving him the opportunity to spread the word and image of his highly creative cosmos.
