Artist, Javier Mariscal, Trusts HP Media to Print his Iconic Images
An artist’s life is no easy path, and most accept the likelihood that a lifetime of work may never achieve recognition. That’s what makes the career of Javier Mariscal so remarkable. This Spanish artist has found success in myriad genres, including furniture design, painting, interior design, film, and sculpture. He’s published books, created a cartoon series, a skateboard collection, and even designed children’s shoes for the company Camper.
His quirky comic character, Cobi, the loveable sheepdog, was chosen for the 1992 Olympic Games Mascot and recognized as the most profitable mascot in the history of the modern games. He has designed several covers for the New Yorker, created the giant lobster sculpture next to Barcelona’s port, and his animated movie Chico and Rita was nominated for an Academy Award.
