He also added his touch to Hampa Studio's, Margarita which won the 2010 Goya Award for Best Animated Short Film. Oriol's published and soon to be published works include his contribution to Javier Aznarez's acclaimed comic collaboration Pigeon Verts, illustrations of the french comic SuperH (or in french, SuperG) with Albert Drandov, illustrating the children's picture book A Mi No Me Gustan Libros written by Joan Portell RifĂ  and La Enciclopedia de los Monstruos, a series of children's stories written by different illustrators of which Oriol contributed his story El Zombie Vicente both to be published by Bromera editions.
