Mixtures of historical, cultural and contemporary themes, Garcia’s comics transcend both aesthetics and the medium itself. The artist frames his work as “politically charged criticism” that “creat[es] dialogue about complicated issues.”
Upon earning his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2009, the national and international recognition for Garcia’s art includes the 1st Place College Cartoonist Award for both the New Mexico and Illinois College Associated Press competition. Garcia can be seen in publications and online news networks such as In These Times and The Black Commentator, and The Weekly Alibi.
