Know your creators: Justin Castaneda

Justin CastanedaJustin Castaneda is a writer and illustrator from the south side of Chicago. In 2007, he published his first in a series called When I Was Little…, a picture book of his fondest childhood memories. The following year, he published the cleverly titled sequel, When I Was Little Too, which carried on the tradition of reliving one’s youth. During 2009, he held a submission contest asking people to share their favorite childhood memories. The selected entries became the focus for his third book, When You Were Little. In the summer of 2011, he released Coloring When I Was Little, a coloring book with activity pages such as connect the dots and word jumbles.

Justin illustrates the Russell Lissau-penned super-villain spoof “Down Time,” found in next month’s full-color return of Omega Comics Presents. Learn more about the issue and pre-order or download it today!
