Qué caso tiene

Another big thanks to for Borr who identified Rogelio Naranjo as the artist of much of the work in the last post on Nexos magazine. I went searching for more of Rogelio Naranjo's work and found scans of his 1982 book Qué caso tiene at La Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo's site, where Naranjo studied. Here are some favorites:

These are both funny and dark. Especially drawn to the dog with the cubist bark and the several variations on bicycles...

Amazing artist, but ... -in many ways- how similar to Quino's style! (Quino = Joaquín Salvador Lavado)
