Leo Trinidad is NY Times Bestselling comic book artist, illustrator and animator from Costa Rica. For 15 years he has been creating content for Children’s Books and TV Shows. His creative career began many years before he graduated with honors from Veritas University in San Jose, Costa Rica. 
Leo is known for being the creator of the first animated series ever produced in Central America. An outstanding achievement that lead him to the foundation of Rocket Cartoons; one of the most successful animation studios in Latin America.

In 2018 he won the first place in the Central American Graphic Novel contest, organized by the French Alliance of Costa Rica, this being an important impulse to his career in comics and graphic novels.
