this is the poster. A3 size, three color separation silk screen
Amarillo Centro de Diseño, a design organization located in this town had invited me to have a talk and a show for Mexican illustrators and designers. If anyone who is reading this happened to be near by, please come by. Here is the info.
Amarillo asked me to create a poster to announce the talk. I wanted to make “Japan meets Mexico” theme, but wanted to avoid the common stereotypes. So, no sombrero, no cactus, no pyramid, no tacos and, sorry Marcos, No Chihuahuas. At the end I decided to go with, one of my Mexican obsessions: Lucha Libre. Amarillo means yellow in Spanish, so it totally looks like that’s my figher name, or something. Let’s leave it as that.
Posters are currently being printed one by one by hands of silk-screeners of Xalapa. I am very excited.
I will be back on Monday. I will let you know how it went.
