Zé Povinho, by Cardoso Lopes, 1935

António Cardoso Lopes began working for ABC-Zinho at age fifteen. It is there where he shaped his style and career. He debuted with his most characteristic work, 'Zé Povinho', which was a simpler and more caricature-filled version of 'Zé Povinho' by Bordalo Pinheiro. Later on, he worked for Pim Pam Pum!, before he started his own magazine 'Tic-Tac', which ran from 1931 to 1937.
