Gustavo Cabral , better known as 'Ciruelo' ('plum tree'), is an Argentine fantasy artist whose work focuses especially on dragons.
Ciruelo was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, suffering from color blindness. That would not stop Ciruelo who at age 13 enrolled in Instituto Fernando Fader, an art school, where he began his formal studies. He started working as illustrator at age 18 for a graphic advertising company, and soon after began doing comic covers. In 1987 he moved to Barcelona, Spain where he drew fantasy books' covers and inside drawings for Timun Mas, a publisher that specializes in the genre.
Cabral then widened his horizons and did work for companies around the world, including companies in the United States, Germany and Spain. He drew the covers of the Chronicles of the Shadow War, a Bantam trilogy written by George Lucas. He has also done music album covers, such as Steve Vai's The Seventh Song, and magazine covers for, among others, Playboy and Heavy Metal magazine. His artwork can also be seen in some cards.
