Although Tulio Lovato successfully completed his studies to become an engineer, he eventually turned to creating comics. He started out with 'Upa en Apuros' and then joined Editorial Dante Quinterno and Patoruzito magazine. There, he created 'Rinkel, el Ballenero' in 1945. With this comic about the life on the seas, Lovato was one of the first artists to work in the typical realistic style of Argentine adventure comics. 'Rinkel' was followed by 'El Vangador de la Guayana' and several documentary comics written by Mico Repetto.
