Sobre

Eduardo Espada

coqui.png

Eduardo es un ilustrador puertorriqueño que vivió su infancia en muchos países de Latinoamérica, incluyendo México, Colombia, República Dominicana y Brasil.

Ha sido ilustrador para textos escolares, periódicos y paginas en internet pero los libros infantiles son los que mejor demuestran su amor al color y la textura. Sus personajes saltan de la página y se quedan contigo por mucho tiempo después de haber cerrado el libro. 

A Eduardo le tocó aprender un idioma nuevo dos veces durante su niñez. Su papá era un cónsul americano y la familia se mudaba a un país nuevo muy a menudo. Es por esto que se identifica profundamente con la misión de Veoleo, que se enfoca en usar el arte y la literatura para fomentar la educación bilingüe y la apreciación de cultura latinoamericana.

Eduardo vive en Boston, Massachussetts con su esposa Sarah (artista y psicóloga), y su gato, quien es un gran personaje.


About

eduardo espada

 

Eduardo was born in Puerto Rico and spent his early years living in many other countries in Latin America, including Mexico, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, and Brazil.

He has illustrated for text books, newspapers, and websites, but it's children's books that best showcase his love of color and texture. His characters leap off the page and stay with you well after you close the cover.

Twice during his childhood, Eduardo has needed to learn a new language. His father, a U.S. Consul, moved the family to a new country every few years. Veoleo's mission of using art and literature to foster bilingual education and an appreciation of Latin American culture in children resonates deeply with him.

Eduardo lives in Boston, Massachussetts with his wife Sarah (an artist and a school psychologist), and their cat, who is a character to remember.
