I'm an Amsterdam based Illustrator. Raised in the Netherlands and from Spanish/Dutch descent. Graduated from St Joost Dutch artschool in Breda in graphic arts and graphic design, followed by an internship in New York.

Studiogarcia is me, Jose Luis Garcia Lechner. Working as a full time illustrator since 1996 and still loving it. Studiogarcia is my ivory tower filled with music, ideas, pencils, brushes, toy characters and an imaginary staff. On a daily basis I create illustrations for the world outside my beloved studio. Taking inspiration from cooking dinners for family and friends, mid-century illustrations and lots of music.

I create art for magazines, books, packaging, logo's, advertisement campaigns and everything in between. Just take a look at my portfolio and see who I joyfully worked with and for. Don't hesitate to call me or mail me. I will gladly answer all your questions in Dutch, Spanish or English.

Past projects I have worked on, include

editorial illustration, book illustration, book and magazine covers, hand-drawn lettering, surface design, character design, package design, logo's & Identities.
