About El Kartun

Known to many as a skilled caricaturist, "El Kartun" has an almost mythical status among cartoonists and animators in Tijuana. His classes in everything from cartooning to classical rendering are widely subscribed and influential, he is the only local artist with a regular strip in "El Sol de Tijuana", the area's largest newspaper, his posters and commercial logos are seen everywhere.

A haunting little piece that moves from everyday humdrum to the kind of violent ultra-reality more familiar to "TJ" citizens than to Americans and other First World citizens, "Just WAKE UP" also resonates from the dissonance of its deadpan text and delicate drawing. Just as the "end" of the "story" is not what the reader expects, there is an odd, questioning air behind the entire project.

It's a crazy and fun, yet sad story made all the more enjoyable by the great pencil artwork inside. Not what I expected, I was surprised in a very good way.

Excellent pencil drawings, and a sad tale... so many Mexican dreams must be nightmares.
