Honeymoon Excitement

Diego and Icha on their wedding day.

Last Kiss Artist Marries

I’m thrilled to announce that artist Diego Jourdan Pereira has lost his bachelor status and gotten hitched! He and his sweetie Maritza “Icha” Mardones Castillo were wed last Friday (Oct. 1) in Santiago, Chile where they both live.

The couple met in 2008 at a friend’s birthday party and eventually dated. But that first brush with romance didn’t stick. Years later they re-united and fell in love.

(By then Diego was re-inking and coloring romance art for Last Kiss. And I like to think that all that romance work had something to do with Diego and Icha finding true love.)

In addition to his Last Kiss work, Diego has worked on numerous other comics, coloring books and licensing projects for major publishers such as DC Comics. In the last few years, Diego has also become the author of numerous trivia and puzzle books.
