Josan was a fash­ion il­lus­tra­tor un­til he de­cided to ex­plore comic art. Since turn­ing free­lance he’s worked for Dark Horse, Boom!, Dy­na­mite, Games Mag­a­zine and Agat Films & Cie among oth­ers, as a comic colourist and cover artist. Early this year he re­leased his first self-pub­lished artbook.

“In it I ex­plore a vi­sion of a near fu­ture plagued by tech­nol­ogy and over the top sit­u­a­tions,” he says. “As well as com­plex me­chan­i­cal in­ven­tions and crazy char­ac­ter de­signs.” An ob­ses­sion for de­tail and rich colour pal­ettes have be­come the land­marks of his style.


De­man­u­fac­ture “The match of the cen­tury: can a hu­man win against a ma­chine? The woman gets a bit of help from an ex­oskele­ton to even things up. Doesn’t look too good so far for the cor­po­rate-spon­sored fighter…”


Franken­punk “A cy­ber­punk take on the Franken­stein mythos. In my retelling Doc­tor Franken­stein is an an­drog­y­nous ge­nius ob­sessed with cre­at­ing life, but also blend­ing flesh and ma­chine to cre­ate the ul­ti­mate mu­tant.”


The Fu­ture is Now “The dead­li­est and most fas­ci­nat­ing melody ever played on the Pi­ano-Bomb. The wrong chord can trig­ger the det­o­na­tion se­quence. The right one can el­e­vate the lis­tener to a new level of con­scious­ness.”

4 War­ma­chine “A thou­sand atom bombs of power, plus top notch en­gi­neer­ing ded­i­cated to de­struc­tion, and cool­ness.”


Vi­o­let Rev­o­lu­tion “She rules the sub­urbs with an iron fist. Ac­tu­ally, four iron fists. So­ci­ety be­trayed her and now she will un­leash hell in the name of the rev­o­lu­tion.”
