At 81 years old, `Quino´ celebrates 50 years of Mafalda
Posted On 15 Mar 2014
Quino told the Efe agency amid the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Mafalda, that this is a `another drawing´. `I’m like a carpenter who makes furniture, and Mafalda is furniture that came out well, nice, but for me is still a piece of furniture, and I do this for the love i have to wood work´, said Joaquín Salvador Lavado Badger , Quino, born in Mendoza in 1932.
Although his desire was not to create a rebellious girl, in his work he appealed to the news of the day, since the character Mafalda was created in an era of repression in Argentina, the creator feels that Mafalda was not an ally on what he wanted to say, when he felt it.
