Viva Michoacan!

Jorge and I were lucky enough to be invited to the prestigious Universidad Tec de Monterrey Campus Morelia in Michoacan to give a small presentation about animation and EL TIGRE. The people were all so nice and it felt even better to talk to kids from Mexico that wanted to learn about animation and everything it envelopes.

I'd like to mention that Morelia, Michoacan also happens to be my parents old stomping grounds. It's where they went to school and they came of age, per say. So it felt extra nice to be visiting and to imagine that I was stepping on the same streets that they stepped on when they were young.

Below is a "guari", a woman from Michoacan culture with the traditional dress. I told the kids at the university I'd design one and put it on my blog. Hope you like it!
