Be sure to stop in at The Center for Cartoon Studies for our First Friday opening of our new exhibit, Por Liniers: Cartoons by the 2016-2017 CCS Fellow, Liniers! 34 pieces created during his time here in Vermont, including his internationally-beloved comic strip, Macanudo, New Yorker covers and cartoon submissions, book covers, Google doodles, and more!
Ricardo Liniers Siri, better known by the name Liniers, is an Argentinian cartoonist. He studied advertising but ultimately decided to pursue a career in comics. He started working in fanzines, then moved on to magazines and newspapers, where he’s been publishing his daily strip Macanudo since 2002. Liniers has also done numerous covers for The New Yorker and been published in Mad Magazine, Virginia Quarterly Review, and The New York Times. The Big Wet Balloon (English and Spanish), Written and Drawn by Henrietta (English and Spanish), and Good Night, Planet (English and Spanish) have been published by TOON Books in the United States. Enchanted Lion published Macanudo 1, 2, and 3 in English. Liniers frequently performs live throughout Latin America with musician Kevin Johansen, and does stand up with fellow Chilean cartoonist Alberto Montt. Liniers was the 2016–2017 fellow at The Center for Cartoon Studies. He lives with his wife and three daughters in Vermont.
