Barcelona, 1967. Self-employed cartoonist, without premises or employees. Catalan, settled in Andalusia since 1982. Decided to self-publish on the web.
I have been drawing for more than 25 years for different media.
In the early 90’s I edited the fanzine Ráfagas. After many years in the local press doing current affairs cartoons for weeklies and magazines, I started working for the newspapers El Correo de Málaga and El Correo de Andalucía
I have also collaborated with other national and international media.
My passage from adolescence to youth took place between the 80s and the 90s. Like all children, I was already drawing, the only difference being that, although I did it badly, I continued to practice as an adult.
With the contagious feeling of cultural effervescence of the decade, I ended up moving naturally, almost without realising it, from the purely artistic (without abandoning it), to the “humorous” to find myself with the fanzines of humour, comics, music, social criticism and so on that still flourished in print in abundance in those days.
Those publications were a good tool to channel the rebelliousness of our age and to express and read opinions about everything that interested us, practising free expression in an environment that we considered absolutely free and far from any control and imposed social norm inherited from the embers of post-Francoism, which of course we openly rejected.
My origins and first contacts with satirical publications and traditional (and not so traditional) comics were in the industrial and working-class suburbs of a big city like Barcelona at a time of a strange mixture of eternal crisis dragged down by generations and a desire for change.
The contact with the traditional press and later with the internet was equally natural and gradual as it was with fanzines, any form of publication was susceptible to be used as long as it allowed expression without interference
Aware of my social condition, more than assumed, of what decades ago was called “middle class” (now a subterfuge to embellish poverty), I was forced to combine the activity of drawing with what we call “food jobs” (read a job with a salary that allows filling the fridge) something that even today most artists of any discipline must achieve in order to survive.
Until I was finally able to dedicate myself fully to this, something that happened not so long ago by chance and which I hope to be able to maintain, as it is not always easy, not even for those authors with “weight” as a signature.
Although today the approach is quite different, I think that for many cartoonists there is still a lot of that essence. The Internet has become a new, immense and crazy fanzine with supposedly independent plots in which to take, assume and defend positions.
