About Liniers

Ricardo Liniers Siri – known as Liniers to comic fans around the world – was born in Argentina in 1973. After initially trying to follow the family tradition and become a lawyer before becoming a comics artist, an artistic career began with self-published fanzines created with friends. He is the creator several graphic novels, including the Eisner Award-winning Good Night, Planet. For the last 16 years, Liniers has written and drawn the daily comic strip Macanudo, published in Argentina in the pages La Nación and in several American newspapers through King Features Syndicate. This long-running strip also runs in the pages of El Pais (Espagne), El Tiempo (Colombie), and HoyxHoy (Chili). Macanudo is of the most well-loved comic strips in all of South America and Liniers is certainly one of the most popular cartoonists on the continent. He received an Inkpot award in 2018.

He is also the founder of the Spanish-language publishing house Editorial Común with his wife Angie. They have published over thirty books, some of which have been translated internationally into English, French, and many other languages.

His work has frequently graced the cover of The New Yorker. Liniers has also toured with the musician Kevin Johansen throughout Latin America and Spain, documenting the groups performances in drawings. His comical artwork has even shown up on the stage at comedy clubs as part of a collaboration with the Chilean artist Alberto Montt.

Liniers is currently in residence at the Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS) in White River Junction, Vermont, where he continues to draw Macanudo daily.
