Claudio Aboy was born in Avellaneda, Argentina on January 24th 1959.During his childhood, drawing was his main way of expression and entertainment. As he was growing up, he autodidactically developed wide-ranging illustration techniques.
Being a teenager, he studied drawing with the artist and teacher José Marchi at Garaycochea’s School of Art.Meanwhile, he studied comic drawing at the same school with Oswal, a teacher and professional cartoonist, but his tendency to over-illustrate each frame was an indicator of what his future career would be.
Years later, he taught illustration in Garaycochea’s School of Art.After working for a short period in a graphic studio, he focused on freelance illustration, working for the most important advertising agencies, publishers and design firms of Argentina.At the same time, he produced fantasy illustration as a hobby. Later this hobby became one of his main areas of work for American and European publishers.
