Juan Zanotto, 1935-2005


Juan Zanotto, an artist who drew comics for the Italian, Argentinan, British and U.S. markets, passed away on Wednesday according to a report on the afNews site. Zanotto was taught by Hugo Pratt and Alberto Breccia, and made his living first as a restorer and then an artist known for Westerns. His longest professional relationship was with Ediciones Record, where he created Henga (also known as Yor, under which title it became a movie familiar to anyone who owned a VCR in the early 1980s), and for whom he later became an art director. There are a few pictures of the artist in this interview.
