I'm Pavel Lujardo, creator of Futurepig. I was born in 1968 and started drawing comics around age 5.

I have sporadically worked as cartoonist and illustrator, but I don't consider myself a professional artist. I keep this page as a personal hobby for myself and for my friends.

I'm pretty much a traditional artist. I still draw with pencil and pens. In recent years I have embraced digital technology, but I use the computer mostly to add color and text to my hand inked pages.


I didn't have a formal education in art but I had many great teachers in my life in the form of artists who were kind to share their insight, advice and specially their friendship with me.

People keep telling me my drawing style is "retro". That is not intentional, I'm just kind of stuck in the 1980s.

Pinton the Pig is a character I created when I was a kid and I have continued to draw all my life.

Pinton's adventures have existed on different media for more than 40 years now. First in school notebooks (where class notes should have been) later as hand-made books that passed around friends and relatives. For short time they were published on different magazines (most of them now extinct) and eventually have found a home on the Internet.
