metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA
In September, during the Alumni Weekend at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, the exhibition “Dispatches from the GSD: 075 Years of Design” was officially inaugurated. In the GSD Website you can find all the information regarding the events that took place.

I want to bring attention to one of the guests, Klaus. His drawings and some of his writings we have found particularly interesting on his blog (which I recommend, is very good). For some more info and a few pics (including the stand where some of the cartoons from this blog are exhibited) you can scroll down or just click here.

About

KLAUS was born somewhere in Western Europe at some point in the mid seventies. For some years, he suffered from a syndrome called architecture, from which he has not yet recovered. Showing an early passion for drawing, he was introduced to comic books at a young age by his family and educators, to their later regret. As an illustrator, Klaus has always believed in the importance of having a distinctive style, which explains why he has been systematically copying the styles of the most distinctive comics artists, such as André Franquín. Only his complete lack of success in doing so has prevented him from being effectively sued for plagiarism. Klaus’s works in this blog show a clear improvement in this sense.

In his words: "this time he will be sued for sure". In his words, "this time surely there is demand." Although not the first time the judges give reason to the "reinterpretation", as with many artists of the 1970s. Klaus luck and Congratulations, great works!, Pointed hat!
