Joseba Elorza

A course by Joseba Elorza

Animator and illustrator

Joseba Elorza studied to become a sound technician and after a couple of fruitful years in art school, MiraRuido was born. This original project arose as a result of the time that Elorza used to spend the morning wrapped in sound on a radio station and the long nights working on his collages; little by little, the visual part gained the audio and ended up becoming their way of life.

His illustrations have been seen in publications such as Esquire, New Scientist or the Wall Street Journal, and he has made animations for clients such as National Geographic or Amazon and video clips for groups such as Green Day and Berri Txarrak among others.
