In 1979, Lazaro was awarded the first prize at the First International Biennale of Humor in San Antonio de los Baños. Learning about the award to him of this award, Lazaro said: “At first I was just interested in making humorous sketches (the first symptoms of the disease!), But this hobby took still a small place in my life.
The introduction to the family of Cuban humorists allowed me to get to know their work more closely, and I could not help but admire their humanity, their spiritual subtlety. Gradually, I got involved (an alarming symptom!), And now I can not (the disease is incurable!) Do not express myself through a humorous drawing, which, incidentally, is gaining popularity in Cuba. There is nothing more serious than humor! “Currently, Lázaro is one of the artists of the magazine Palante.
