Where? The Cartoon Art Museum
When? Thursday, October 7, 2004, 7:00pm
How much? Open to the public: Suggested Donation $5

Cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz will present his trademark gut-splitting multimedia talk about his cartoons and politically themed animation at the Cartoon Art Museum on Thursday, October 7, beginning at 7:00pm. This hilarious and insightful presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the artist and a book signing.

Lalo Alcaraz is appearing at the Cartoon Art Museum to promote the release of his two latest books: Migra Mouse: Political Cartoons on Immigration (RDV Books), an editorial cartoon collection featuring a decade's overview on his iconic cartoons on the controversial immigration issue; and La Cucaracha (Andrews McMeel Publishing), the first collection from Lalo's highly satirical, groundbreaking political daily comic strip which is syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate.

The hardheaded son of Mexican immigrants, Los Angeles-based Chicano artist and satirist Lalo Alcaraz has attracted numerous honors and awards, media coverage, and bags of poisonous fan mail for his powerful political cartoons demanding justice and fair treatment for immigrants, Latinos and minorities.

Lalo's work can be seen in newspapers nationwide, and online at http://www.ucomics.com/lacucaracha and http://www.cartoonista.com
