Bartolozzi’s Pinnochio


Pinnochio_A Journey Round My Skull 090703

Salvador Bartolozzi (1882 – 1950) was one of the most important Spanish comic artists from the 1920s. With his several famous characters, such as the ‘Pipo y Pipa’ and his free adaptation of Collodi’s ‘Pinocho y Chapete’, Bartolozzi counts as an innovator of the Spanish comic strip. Bartolozzi went to Paris, where he stayed for six years. After his return, he joined the publishing house Calleja. Bartolozzi collaborated with several juvenile magazines, such as Pinocho, Macaco and Chiquilín.

    This is just weird … but I like it for some reason.
    Little bag men making sausage shadows.
    … or are those very bad banana costumes?

    plane– I liked it because it was so odd, but there’s too much Freudian innuendo packed in that picture for me. Kinda like a nightmare Ernie Bushmiller’s “Nancy” might have.

    It’s kinda nightmare inspiring. The attack of the killer bagmen

    The Eve of the Night of the Hassenpfeffer.
