Lola Lorente

Last night, Pam and I attended the presentation of Lola Lorente’s book, “Sangre de mi Sangre” in Bigastro.

First we had a résumé of Lola’s credentials as a comic artist including the various prizes that she has been awarded and the work she has accomplished.This was followed by an explanation in the form of questions and answers about what motivated her to produce the book and the underlying theme. Lola also explained what influences she drew from and the techniques that she used in drawing her cartoons.

There were then a number of questions from the audience to be answered and finally she sat down to sign copies of the book. Being an artist, Lola did not simply inscribe a brief greeting and her signature, she carefully drew a cartoon on the fly page of each book. That was a very personal touch that I am sure was much appreciated.
