Original page of Mortadelo y Filemon’s “Star Wars” story created by Spanish comics artist Jordi David Redo
This original artwork was created by Jordi David Redo, a Spanish cartoonist who began working as an apprentice in an advertising agency, where he met Mingo (Domingo Correa Expósito), a regular collaborator of Editorial Bruguera. With him, he learned to ink and eventually started working for the same book publisher. Vázquez chose him as an inker and his two first published pages were Mortadelo and Pulgarcito in 2075 magazine (1971). Later, he created the series “Pillo y Bollo” (published in “Sacarino” and “Super Sacarino” magazines) and “Rufo” (“Mortadelo” magazine). He was chosen by Sanchís to take part of the Mortadelos drawing producers team. At that time, Redo created numerous adventures, including “La historia del dinero” (Bruguera 1980).
In the early 1980s, Sanchís also set up another studio where he worked for the German comic series “Fix and Foxy” and for “Disney” publishing in Denmark (Gutenberghus/Egmont Group). Jordi David collaborated in the Danish “Donald Duck”magazine for thirty years, illustrating numerous stories and well known Disney characters, from Mickey Mouse to Little Hiawatha. Some of these pieces (like the “Little Hiawatha” adventures) were also published in the German “Micky Maus” magazine.
This artwork comes from Jordi David Redo’s private collection and has been specially selected by himself to present to Corner4art.
