Larry Alcala is a well-known editorial cartoonist and illustrator. In his over 50 years of cartooning, he has made over 500 characters, twenty comic strips, six movies, two murals and 15,000 published pages. His most popular cartoon series was Slice of Life, which is a reflection of the many unique aspects of everyday life in the Philippines.
Slice of Life received the Best in Humor award and was also cited for helping to keep alive the Filipino's ability to laugh at himself, through the lively marriage of art and humor, and through commentaries that are at once critical and compassionate, evoking laughter and reflection. Remember spending your Sundays looking for the concealed caricature of his face on Slice of Life? Now, you get to do this again!
