LALO ALCARAZ BIO
Lalo Alcaraz is perhaps the most prolific Chicano artist in the nation, according to this bio. Lalo has been busy for over two decades chronicling the political ascendancy of Latinos in America and vigorously pushing the boundaries of Chicano art in the Post Chicano Art Era.
He is the creator of the first nationally-syndicated, politically-themed Latino daily comic strip, “La Cucaracha,” seen in scores of newspapers including the Los Angeles Times (syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate, home of “Doonesbury” and “The Boondocks.”)
Lalo has produced editorial cartoons for the L.A. Weekly since 1992 and also creates editorial cartoons in English and Spanish for Universal.Building on his success as an artist and writer, Lalo’s next project is a re-boot of the famed Pocho.com, his pioneering humor, satire and cerveza webzine/blog/news site.
