Hugo, by Toté

Antonio Rodríguez-Laiz was born in Almería (Spain) and now resides in Torremolinos (Málaga). He signs most of his work with the pseudonym Toté. In the second half of the 1970s, Toté started off drawing some comics for the local newspapers. Later, in the 1980s he began to draw comics for Spanish magazines like NT, Rialta, Mundo or the Cruz Roja Magazine, where he was successful with his 'Nico' and 'Hugo' series. Since the late 1990s he has been working more as an illustrator but he still makes comics for specific projects.

Series and books by Toté in stock in the Lambiek Webshop:


Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
