Hi fellas! It's been a while! I've been busy making papier mache sculptures for an upcoming art show in SD in honor of Day of the Dead. It will be an honor to be showing side to side next to some amazing talent like the likes of Israel Sanchez, Simon Varela, Martin Ontiveros, Amanda Visell, Lorelay Bove, Jerry De Jesus, Sadie Figueroa, Rhode Montijo and of course Mister Jorge Gutierrez the awesome, who not only came up with the idea, but took on the task of actually bringing it all together :)
If you're in the area, go check it out at SUBTEXT GALLERY in SD, it's good stuff, good peeps, good food, good times :)

Negrita Cucurumbe

Hello anyone! I apologize for the lack of posts. Really I do. I've been a little caught up making sculptures for an upcoming Day of the Dead art show in San Diego entitled "Dia de Tus Muertos". I'm also doing a piece for a book in Mexico City paying an homage to Gabilondo Soler also known as Cri-Cri, the great Mexican children's song composer!
A handful of artists were picked out to do their versions of a song given to them. Mine is "Cucurumbe", a song about a little girl who doesn't want to be black, she wants to be white like the moon, the shells on the beach and the foam on the shoreline. One day a dapper little fish wearing a bowler hat comes up to her and exclaims " Goodness child! Can't you see that you are beautiful as you are?"
One of my upcoming goals is to have an art show based on Cri-Cri's songs, so this might just be the first step in that direction!
I hope you like it :)

I love the Sartorialist. I love looking at the interesting people he captures with his camera and I love looking at what they are wearing.
Rei is a photographer that kept popping up in his blog, she is cute as the dickens, so I decided to draw her. Here is my first Rei drawring.

Rei in all her cuteness.

My Rei.

Don Nacho and Camila

Back when I was 7ish, I remember my dad introduced me to a very round, sweaty, pink, gentleman named Don Nacho and his extravagant wife Camila. Don Nacho was a patient of my fathers' and he proved to be a very happy fun going guy. He always wore a sombrero and jeans and Camila never left the house it seemed without a heavy application of mascara and her hair done up. They owned nurseries where they grew trees and such and sold them to the county to plant on the sides of freeways. Therefore, they were pretty well off (aka, VERY rich). They had a wonderful marriage and you could tell they loved each other very much. They were both loud, jubilant people willing to share anything they had with friends. I remember going to their house back then and being in awe of their living room decor which resembled a small nightclub complete with neon volcano lamps, leather couches and neon signs. Think Scarface with a sunken living room and barely lit except for the neon coming from the lamps. Unfortunately, the friendship with my father ended quite abruptly due to Don Nachos death and we lost touch with them. Nevertheless, they remain in my thoughts as one of the most interesting couples I met when I was little.
