He began his illustrious career drawing editorial cartoons at his college paper, The Daily Aztec , at San Diego State University. Today, Lalo is a one-of-a-kind cartoonist, satirist and writer who captures the essence of the country's changing cultural and political landscape like no other. Bringing a young fearless Latino sensibility to his political and social commentary, his is a fresh voice, whose unabashedly pro-immigrant, progressive stance about the need for a multicultural visibility in the media is long overdue. His latest book is LATINO USA: A Cartoon History. Lalo co-edits the satirical magazine POCHO.

In his entertaining multi-media presentation, Lalo sketches his favorite cartoons and shares his dazzling kaleidoscope of irreverence, wit, subversion, anarchy, politics, humanism, and rage for an eventful, thought-provoking evening.
