Ricardo Cate is a serious participant in his Pueblo culture, and acclaimed as a Master cartoonist, filmmaker, artist, teacher and stand-up comic.

His comedy is often rooted in intercultural concepts, but this delightful painting is universal: parents, kids, and school.

His cartoons, regularly published in Santa Fe’s newspaper, always reflect “the irony native people feel and express in humor”, according to a peer.

Here, the irony is, perhaps, that people are not really different, no matter their cultural background.

This domestic vignette will inspire smiles of rueful familiarity from parents – and former schoolchildren – everywhere.

The figures are Native, but you can easily imagine Dennis the Menace in the same situation; kids and parents are the same, even when different.

Painted with vibrant color and a fine composition, this is another of Ric Cate’s remarkably delightful paintings.

It would  make an especially apt gift for a teacher, or teacher-to-be.
