About

banner jilipollo white

Hello, I am Javier Medellin Puyou a.k.a. Jilipollo, an award winning Mexico based illustrator. Having an architect degree and firstly worked as one,  I eventually decided illustration will be what I wanted to do for a living, due to circumstances in life (some of them a bit tough!), self taught and of course my own will.

Hola, soy Javier Medellín Puyou a.k.a. Jilipollo, ilustrador mexicano. Teniendo una licenciatura en arquitectura y habiendo trabajado como tal en un inicio, eventualmente decidí que la ilustración sería lo que quería hacer para ganarme el pan (y la bebida), debido a ciertas circunstancias en la vida (algunas ciertamente difíciles :/ ), y por voluntad propia, claro, de manera autodidacta.
