Artist, possibly Spanish, about whom nothing can be traced. A number of other artists share this name – one, Alvaro Mendoza, a Mexican artist who has a similar signature (written in capital letters). Mendoza was born in Izlahuaaca, Mexico, in 1952 and clearly would not have been contributing to Look and Learn in January 1963, when two images of Don Quixote and his squire, Sancho Panza, appeared in the magazine.

The signature on the above picture was removed when it was printed in Look and Learn, as was the colour: it appeared only in black & white.

Examples of Alvaro's artwork can be found for sale at the Illustration Art Gallery.
