Ernesto García Cabral

My good friend Barry reminded me to include García Cabral in this "Mexican Masters group" and later Fanooch mentioned his name as well in a comment he posted regarding Carreño, I agree of course and here he is: Ernesto painted tons of Mexican movie posters, he had a gift for caricature and for voluptuous yet cute cartoony girls, he is more popular now than ever before.

You can find (and buy) a lot of his posters at the Impact Graphics Posters website.

Abrazos,

Hola,

First things first, Hope ya kicked that nasty sickness.

I remember always seeing posters like these in the Mexican video rental store back when I was a kid. The chariacture always made me laugh and I could never forget the abundance of women.

Definately got a smile from viewing this last post.

The main character in most of his movie posters was a comedian named Tin-Tan, I remember as a kid watching one or two of his movies, the guy was crazy, I found him funny then, but it was kinda the Jackie Gleason stuff, it got stale after 3 or 4 episodes, same predictable jokes and antics, Cantinflas was more engaging because he was a "master" of language, there's no way they could have written a script for the shit he came up with.

Thanks for the get-well wishes, I'm going through a difficult month health wise, I recovered from the flu-like virus watchamacallit only to get hit by a very violent episode of food poisoning or god knows what.

I hope it's not an ulcer or something worse, but the pain is excruciating at times. I hate doctors but I think I just may have to go tomorrow and get checked out.

Thanks for stopping by.

Greetings,

Man I am a huge cabral and Freyre fan!
It's good to see someone else shares my love for these amazing artists! I actually have "Freyre y su obra" and "las decadas del Chango"(that one was almost impossible to get!). It's interesting to look at how many styles and variations that Cabral went through over his career...truly a renaissance man! If you want, I have scans of the book and if you want them, just let me know the best way. Peace (by the way love your work! You draw ethnicities the best, and it's rare that you see someone draw hands and feet as well as you do!)

Thanks Insanitay,

Yeah, I've seen tons of stuff by Cabral, Freyre, Carreño and Arias Bernal, these guys were so prolific it boggles the mind, unfortunate I don't have that much, if you'd like to share your scans, they're be more than welcomed, you can email them 3 at a time to: deepfriedcandy@mac.com.

Thanks for the nice comments on my work.
