20 anos de desenhos - Antonio Antunes (Portugal)
article by JMB
António, born in 1953, is one of the actual greatest Portuguese cartoonists, not to say the best one. He publishes his first cartoon in the daily paper República on March 1974. At the end of this year he is the editorial cartoonist for Expresso, his country’s largest weekly paper. His brilliantly designed caricatures are also seen on Portuguese television and in other leading journals, such as Courrier International in France, as well as in the USA and internationally through the Cartoonists & Writers Syndicate (New York). He published six books and has been honoured during his career with an array of awards. António is also the creator and director of the “World Press Cartoon”, a salon reserved to the cream of the cream. Each one of these big catalogues is a real survey over one year of the world best press cartoons. Obviously, António produces and loves quality cartoons!
