Profile for Zeke Peña

Greetings friends my name is Zeke. I’m a cartoonist and illustrator from El Paso, TX.

I was born in Las Cruces, NM and grew up in El Paso. I make comics and illustrations as an accessible way to reclaim stories and remix history. I have a degree in Art History from the University of Texas at Austin and I’m mostly self-taught in drawing and painting. I received the 2020 Ezra Jack Keats and Pura Belpré Illustrator Honor Awards for my first children’s book My Papi Has a Motorcycle, written by Isabel Quintero and published by Kokila, a Penguin Young Readers imprint.

I also received the 2018 Boston Globe Horn Book Award for Photographic: The Life of Graciela Iturbide, a graphic biography I illustrated. I have published work with REMEZCLA,, Latino USA, The Believer Magazine, The Nib, Penguin Random House, Algonquin Books, Holt/Macmillan and Cinco Puntos Press. I am currently digging into family history to uncover stories for future books.

Sorry prints will not come signed, but happy to sign them when I see you.

Member since February 2019
