My name is José Jiménez Vega and I work on illustrations for the publishing, design and advertising sector. I started my career in 2016 developing creative projects for clients such as Red Bull, Nación Sushi, Cable Onda, Creative Commons Panama, Marviva among others.
In 2018 I was selected as one of the illustrators for the book “Citadinas sin bambalinas”, an opportunity that opened the doors to editorial illustration, through which I explore the art of telling stories with images using different techniques.
I studied Graphic Design in Panama City where I am currently working, and through workshops and master classes with renowned artists at regional Art and Design Festivals, I have built a solid experience in the field of illustration.
I have spent pleasant moments exhibiting my work in different art festivals, and I regularly participate as speaker in talks or workshops, where I share my experiences as an independent illustrator.
Let’s take a ride through my sketchbook
I enjoy a lot giving workshops!

Cambiar el Mundo con Lápiz y Papel
“I suffer from extreme punctuality. If I arrive at 11:05 and the meeting is at 11:00, I start sweating”
Short story about me before beard
I draw since I was a little kid. During my free time, I used to make cardboard robots, and to make drawings of my favorite characters which I sold at $0.25.
When I finished high school, I decided to study Advertising, but never got a job on an agency. Instead, I worked for recognized companies where I learned logistics, and a ton of administration stuff.
After traveling to many countries, reading a lot of books, and learning from my ups and downs, I finally took my tie off, and started an adventure that would change my life forever.
A perfect day:
Cappuccino, ink on paper and 90’s rock music.
I like speaking in public.
I performed as speaker at FuckUp Nights Vol. 14, and later I hosted FuckUp Nights Vol. 16
