Ernesto Garcia Cabral (born, Huatusco, Veracruz, Mexico 1890-1968)
Nicknamed “Chango”, Cabral is considered by many to be one of Mexico's greatest political cartoonists and illustrators. He was awarded a scholarship to study at the San Carlos Art Academy when he was 17. At the age of 22, he traveled to study in Paris, France where he became skilled as a cartoonist and political caricaturist. Cabral returned to Mexico in 1918 where he developed a well-respected reputation as a caricaturist in various publications. His reputation and talent for creating expressive caricatures helped him gain entry to illustrate posters for Mexican film comedies during the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema. His talents also included working as a muralist in the US and in Mexico.
