Jorge Ginès Part 1

"Gin" was born Jordi (Jorge) Ginés in Barcelona in 1930 he left us in 1996. A versatile, super talented cartoonist, who mastered many art disciplines and worked as an illustrator and humorist for just as many publications, including children's books, comics and countless Magazines such as Playboy and El Jueves, Oscar Grillo brought him to my attention in a previous comment and I thought I should post these to celebrate his life and achievements, he is virtually unknown in the US, why? I don't fucking know, why is Bush president?. . . exactly! I was saving them for later but what the hell, you can never have too much inspiration. Part two next week, en el mismo baticanal.

OH MY GOD!!. . . if there is such a thing? These beauties brought actual "laughter" into my morning 8) WOW!! I've truly enjoyed them! What life and stories it brings to my imagination. Thank you for sharing so much. WOW GOD!!

Actually, I've had these for quite a few years, never posted them because here in North America not many people care for this stuff same as with the Mexican artists and the great Argentinians like Divito, most people are sheep, they follow blindly to their blind "leaders" and they worship celebrities beyonf reason, they're not interested in substance.

The only way they would even consider giving stuff like this a look is if someone who's popular mentions it and only then it becomes "all the rage", otherwise they remain in obscurity.

I've posted a lot of stuff like this on other forums and only met with a cold reception, I found only a handful of individuals interested, I think it's fucking sad, if you'd asked me.

That's why I love this blog, rejects of the world, unite! we have a thing going on, meeeeeeeeeeeee...eee...eeee and Mrs., Mrs. Jones...Mrs. Jonessssss!...erm, sorry!

Dude just dropped back to see the new and say thanks for all the extremely kind words it's appreciated always and I hope to continue to get inspired by your work and the level of my own rises to someday be reconized and appreciated as your own

You're very talented and have enormous potential, keep yourself humble and keep doing it for yourself, that's the main thing, don't worry about recognition, oddly enough, the more you strive for personal excellence regardless of public acceptance, the more recognition you'll achive.

Hey Alberto, THESE ARE FANTASTIC. Between you and Oscar, you are opening up a whole new world. Thank you for that. You're right, I'm not sure why these are not more widely known. They're incredible. By the way, I love all the work you are doing on Scribblets. Beautiful, beautiful. Can't tell you how much I like them. Wasn't able to leave a comment there, so I had to tell you here.
Looking forward to checking them everyday.

Excelente trabajo de difusion estas haciendo, Alberto! Buenisimo lo de Gin...Es verdad, me han dado unas ganas de dibujar que no me aguanto! (lastima que hoy no puedo...)
Totalmente de acuerdo con lo de las ovejas...Ya que nombraste a los mexicanos...Covarrubias!!!, me apasiona, tengo scans de su obra por todos lados!!!

Process Junkie said...

Covarruvias!! ahora que lo mencionas, tu arte me recuerda a ese gran artista, aunque brillas con luz propia. Sabes, me encantan tus caricaturas también, dale una miradita a mi viejo sitio a ver que opinas. Si tienes tiempo uno de estos dias comparte algunas de las muchas imágenes de Miguel Covarruvias que posees o me mandas un email diciéndome donde puedo ver más de el, Tengo muy pocas y de muy baja resolución.

Gracias por tus comentarios y por tu apoyo.

Donachada: Hey man!! I'm loving your newest doodles as well, you're developing your own, very unique "voice". Thanks for the comments on the Scvribblettes, that thing is out of control, heh, heh! I'm having so much fun, originally it was suppossed to be just quick, free style roughs, lately they're turning into "mini" illustrations, I'm sure that will change in time, wherevere it takes me.

I'm also glad you're enjoying this truly inspirational work by these other "unknown" artists, I have tons and tons of stuff from unsung heroes like Jorge Gin and Divito, some you might have herad of and some totally foreign to you, I'm sure. I'll be posting more throughout the year.

Rebekit: Thank you much!
