He was among the most widely published cartoonists in many countries around the world during the 1970s. His drawings are characterized by bright colors and a strong sense of humor.
Born in Argentina, he moved to New York in 1960 to work on Paramount cartoons particularly for Popeye (Popeye). From New York he moved to Paris to collaborate with Paris Match. The European environment led him in the mid-70s to the Bordighera show where in a short time he established himself as a point of reference for the community of humorists. In 1978 he received the Palme d'Or for illustrated literature and in 1983 for the humorous drawing. He was a member of the jury and he attended Bordighera every year until 1999.
ASSOCIAZIONE SALONE INTERNAZIONALE UMORISMO
The event could not have lasted for over fifty years without the contribution of numerous "volunteers" and "precepts" who brought enthusiasm and desire to do whatever the task received, with nineteenth-century shifts! From the choice of the drawings, to the preparation of the panels (always the same every year), to the posting with various pins of the hundreds of drawings up to the presence on stage.
We therefore want to thank, in absolutely no order but with equal contributions, all those who come to mind, apologizing if we miss some, but we are ready to fix it!
