Quino - Latin American cartoonist

Sat Aug 18, 2012, 6:02 AM

Joaquín Salvador Lavado, better known as Quino, is an Argentine cartoonist born in Mendoza on July 17, 1932.  According to his official website, Quino discovered his love for art at the young age of 3 thanks to his uncle Joaquín Tejón, painter and advertising illustrator.

In Mendoza, he went to the School of Fine Arts (Escuela de Bellas Artes) with the hopes of working for the comic Rico Tipo. However, he left the school in 1945.  Five years later, he sells his first cartoon to a silk shop and visits Buenos Aires for 3 weeks in search for a job, with not luck whatsoever. In 1954, he returns to Buenos Aires where some of his works get published by Esto Es.  In 1963 he publishes his first book: a collection of silent comics titled Mundo Quino.

His most famous and successful work is Mafalda, a comic strip about a little girl who is concerned about world peace and humanity. Mafalda has been translated to more than 30 languages all over the world and ran from 1964 to 1973. In 1976, Mafalda was appointed UNICEF's spokesperson for the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

After Mafalda's success, Quino dedicated himself to drawing editorial-style comics published on a weekly basis by the Argentine newspaper Clarín and has published various compilations with them.

I live in Argentina... and her we are used to see his works in very magazine and newspaper. Its nice to know his work has reached a wide audience all over the world... I wouldnt have grasped the scope of it. Nice article to one of the greatest latin american graphic humorists.

Señora... hoy he aprendido algo nuevo!
No sabía que este señor era el creador de Mafalda *se quita el sombrero ante él*
Aunque no tenga nada que ver con la temática de Mafalda, se dice también que muchos cómicos argentinos tienen muy buen sentido del humor.
¿Has oído hablar alguna vez de Francisco Ibañez, el creador de Mortadelo y Filemón?

Por algo creo que el grupo argentino Les Luthiers ha tenido tanto éxito en Latino América y si no me equivoco en España. :giggle:

He escuchado de Mortadelo y Filemón, pero no conocía el nombre de su creador!

Aaaah, Les Luthiers, por supuesto que son conocidos acá también. Los vi en Madrid hará a lo mejor 4 años.
Esos son unos artistazos, tanto en interpretación, como en humor y música, son muy polifacéticos ellos, si :heart:
Yo desde bien brat he leído cómics de Mortadelo y Filemón, me encantan, hasta se hizo una serie de TV de dibujos animados en los años 70 y luego otra en el 1994.
Francisco Ibáñez fue a mi ciudad a una tienda a firmar y fajsdlfjsdkfj no pude ir :iconwhywouldyoudothatplz:
Años más tarde... el manga/anime me pervirtió un poquillo :iconkruemelplz: pero los grandes clásicos del cómic siempre estarán en mi corazón.
