Video: Interview with Spanish Cartoonist Kap

I had the pleasure of speaking with brilliant Spanish editorial cartoonist Jaume Capdevila, who goes by the pen name Kap (see more of Kap’s cartoons).

Kap lives and works in Barcelona, and draws political cartoons for La Vanguardia and El Mundo Deportivo, among others. There are a bunch of great editorial cartoonists in Spain, and a lot of hard hitting cartoons. However, the cartoons tend to be local and we don’t see much of them in the United States because they don’t draw much about international issues. Kap draws a lot about international issues, so we’ve added his bold, brilliant cartoons to our Spanish syndicate.

Here’s the interview:

And here are some recent Kap cartoons:

I agree with TimeGhost-there are some great cartoonists in Europe, particularly in the Manchester Guardian and the Independent UK.

The kid's shows have a tendency to be neighborhood and we don't see quite a bit of them in the United States since they don't draw much about worldwide issues. Kap draws a great deal about global issues, so we've included his striking, splendid kid's shows to our spanish syndicate. Thanks!
