Enrique V. Vegas will take part in Helsinki Comics Festival programme as a remote guest.
Enrique V. Vegas (1967) is Segovian by birth, from Madrid by training and Cantabrian by adoption. In Madrid he studied Advertising Art at the School of Arts and Crafts. After finishing his studies, he approached comics with a realistic style, but then he soon drifted towards the drawing of short and stubborn characters with whom he has achieved a personal style. His first work with this style was the header Arbillos, published in 1999. After the success of this parody of the Alien franchise came Los Cabezones de las galaxias, Cabezón Jones, El Cabezón oscuro, El Cabezón de los anillos, Espiderman, Jellboy, Cabezones del Caribe and many others, until Cabezoniano, his latest parody starring his big heads.
Without abandoning his style, the author has published other series and adult works, including Kobe, located in feudal Japan; Leinad, a personal work where fantasy and adventures in their purest form; and War Diaries, a hard and rough x-ray of war where the smiles of the big heads fade before the harshness of what is told there.
Within the field of education, Enrique V. Vegas has published two volumes of the series Great Characters in History, with a script by Javier Matesanz, albums where text and drawing go hand in hand to explain the life and achievements of people whose contribution has been capital for the development of contemporary society.
In 2004 he won the public award for the best new author at the Barcelona Comic Fair, and in October 2019 he received the José Ramón Sánchez Award for the Ciudad de Santander comic.
