Guasa Viva (Pluma y Lápiz #77, 4/1902)

Teodoro Gascón Baquera was a pharmacist from Teruel, who was also well-known for his drawings of typical Aragonese people and their customs. He spent most of his childhood in Azuara, and attended the University in Madrid. It was during this period that he published his first artwork in Madrilenian newspapers and satirical magazines in order to pay for his education.

He was a pharmacist in Azuara for sixteen years, and later held this profession in Alcañiz and Paniza, while also maintaining a steady graphical production. His daily contact with the rural people of Aragon resulted in the many observations and depictions he made in the comics and illustrations for magazines like Vida Alegre, El Campo, Nuevo Mundo and Blanco y Negro. He also illustrated Aragonese tales in the collections 'Alegría' and 'Maravillas'. His published his final work in the scholastic magazine Recreo Escolar.
