Diana Val

Born in 1996 in La Paz, Bolivia, Diana has drawn for as long as she can remember, though at the time she didn't know she could make a living from something that she loved so much.

A comic fan, she is an illustrator and cartoonist by profession. She studied at the National Academy of Fine Arts "Hernando Siles" in La Paz and has participated in various illustration and cartoon compilations, has done illustrations for story books, novels and magazines, and also worked for private publishers and public institutions. She has exhibited paintings in collective exhibitions in her hometown and pages of her comics in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 2018, she won first prize in the VII Municipal Cartoon Competition of La Paz. Everyone Has a Plan for Uma is the first book she has illustrated for Kids' Books Bolivia. 

She is also a full-time mother, which gives her the "premium coal" for her professional growth.
