DON’T AUSTIN MY TULSAPERSONAL POSTER PROJECT, 2011(Commentary: After visiting my hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma last year, and through reuniting with my old friends, I came to realize that Tulsa was growing and revitalizing itself more than I had ever seen it before.  However, I have also noticed some trends of gentrification that, I feel, will sidestep some true issues that have always needed to be dealt with, such as crime, racial/class segregations, urban sprawl, architectural & neighborhood preservation, etc.

And like any city, Tulsa has its own particular character and quirks.  Yet I don’t feel there is any need to “weird” it, as is the mantra where I currently reside, Austin, Texas.  Here, I’ve seen “weird” in action, and it does not always equate “good”.  In fact, it attracts and creates nutjobs, and Tulsa has their own home-grown nutjobs, thank you very much.

My idea is to emphasize the power and sophistication Tulsa has always had, and that dignity should not give way to fleeting quirkiness.)

LAS TORONJAS, SERIES OF FOUR, 2010(Photoshop/typesetting practice project, using scanned images.  Note: Besides for practice, this project was inspired by Roy Lichtenstein, Jarritos Toronja soda pop and a vice of mine: My collection of sensacionales, little Mexican comic books that depict…uh, well…sorry if it offends.  The quality of each sensacionale’s artwork varies, and normally the cover’s artist is not the storyboard’s artist, but altogether, the better sensacionales artists could give other graphic novelists a run for their money.  The artists, from top to bottom: Unknown [from cover of El Sancho Y Sus Movidas, No. 106], Aries, Edmundo Molina and Carlos Becerra.  En homenaje a todos ustedes.)
