Animaniacs, by Leonardo Batic

Leo Batic is the co-founder of the international art studios Duendes del Sur, which he runs together with Walter Carzon and Pablo Zamboni. Born in the city of La Plata, Batic graduated as a journalist in 1989 at the National University of La Plata and he entered the University of Fine Arts the following year. In 1991, he started working for different genre magazines, producing both illustrations and humor. Among these magazines are Ser Empresario, La Madre, El Mosquito and BA Comics.

In 1992, he organized - together with the BA Comics staff - the first seminar on Graphic Humor ever dictated at national faculties. Owing to the success of this course of studies, he decided, together with the team, to create La Gastada, a magazine in which the most outstanding national humor names gathered together.

He eventually turned to publishing houses for children, together with his companion Walter Carzon. After a while, he met Enrique Campdepadrós (Khato), who helped him finish the layouts of many of his series, as well as the comic 'The Incredible Hulk' for Marvel in the United States. All through this period, he assisted Alberto Saichann and Horacio Ottolini, who became his masters on the art of the comic.

In 1995, he teamed up with Carzon again and illustrated the 'Space Jam' graphic novel in 1996, which accompanied the international launching of the 'Space Jam' movie. Eventually joined by Pablo Zamboni, Batic and Carzon set up the studio Duendes del Sur. Since then, this studio provides its services to different publishing houses in England, Denmark, France, Germany, Canada, the United States, China and Argentina. Batic has done art on a great many stories with 'Animaniacs' and 'Looney Tunes'. Besides his occupation as license illustrator and head of the Publishing Department at Duendes del Sur, he has published several graphic novels with Editorial Albatros.
