Antonio Fraguas de Pablo, better known as Forges (Madrid, 17 January 1942 – Madrid, 22 February 2018), drew his first joke on 19 March 1963 when he was working in the cinema section of Televisión Española. At that time, it was Jesús Hermida, an icon of Spanish journalism, who encouraged him to publish his first illustration: Forges was thus initiated into the world of graphic humor. He has collaborated with the main Spanish magazines, from Hermano Lobo to El Jueves, and in newspapers such as El País, Pueblo and El Mundo. In his work, costumbrismo and social criticism occupy a fundamental place. His strong point was his critical vision of everyday life situations. Forges created an extensive iconography of comic characters and situations that reflects the idiosyncrasy and sociology of contemporary Spain.
