Augusto Marin was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1921, and became well known in Puerto Rican as a painter of the 20th century. At the age of twelve his talent earned him a scholarship to study painting at the workshop of Spanish artist, Sánchez Felipe. While serving in the Army during World World II (1943-1945), he created Polito, a comic strip published in the newspaper El Mundo. Marin used this strip to describe the experiences of the Puerto Rican soldier and his daily life in (showing 500 of 4542 characters).
