Ricardo Caté On Drawing Cartoons that Address Controversial Topics

February 15, 2018 – Cartoonist Ricardo Caté is the only Native cartoonist whose work appears regularly in a daily major newspaper, the Santa Fe New Mexican. His cartoon “Without Reservations” addresses both current and past political issues.

Caté sits down this week with producer Sarah Gustavus to talk about the controversy surrounding a cartoon published recently in the Albuquerque Journal, his creative process and how cartoons can be part of dialogue over issues like immigration and Native American rights.

Caté has an exhibit opening on March 17 at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque.

From a previous episode:

Lalo Alcaraz is a Mexican American cartoonist and writer whose work has appeared in newspapers across the country. The San Diego-born artist recently joined the Pixar animation studios as a consultant for the new film “Coco” – a movie based on the Mexican holiday, the Day of the Dead.

Lalo Alcaraz joined New Mexico in Focus correspondent Russell Contreras to talk about the project and his cartooning in the age of President Donald Trump.
