COTTA: who? when? where was he...?
This is one of two pages by an artist named "COTTA," which popped up on the indispensable CARTOON RETRO a few years ago. Nothing more by him has surfaced, and yet I remain fascinated--these are great examples of truly, boldly stylized figures in my opinion. CR has opened my eyes up to many such cartoonists, particularly from South America, Spain and Italy. Wouldn't you know it, Cotta is the most intriguing, and the scarcest.
Anybody got any leads on bio information or where more art can be seen...?
UPDATE: IGNACIO OCHOA sends us this link to several more choice images, as well as supplies some biographical details in the comments here.... Gracias Ignacio!
