abra.macabra.4 by betteo abra.macabra.4 by betteo
Fresh from the oven... ©Revista Nexos.

Once again, the subject is Chihuahua and Ciudad Juárez.

"Chihuahua" is not only a dog race. The real bitter fact: It's the name of a big northern mexican state/district with some serious troubles around. The first image is a map. Reveals the shape and position of Chihuahua (and mostly, Juárez). :( The skull reveals its position on the violent-deaths chart. World charts.

No son precisamente un anuncio de "Visite Chihuahua", ¿pero qué se le va a hacer...? Sobre todos con esos encargos tan gruesos sobre Juárez. Hay muchas realidades, sin duda. Espero que la tuya sea un poco menos ruda. :thumbsup:

Gracias, Lalo. Pos sí, hablo en inglés para que todos entiendan y todos aprendamos... Un idioma extra nunca sobra.

Eso ha dado divertidas confusiones. :)

This is very impressive. Colours, texture, everything. And you do this all on the computer? Or do you sketch on paper and then colour digitally? It looks very much like water colour.

THKS! It's called "modern traditional". Pencil linework with computer for colors.

I love the line work, colors, and textures you put in this. The diptych works well for the composition. I'm sorry to hear about all the death in Chihuahua. Your work is well done and gets the point across.

I agree. Communication between people is 60% visual and for artists I think that number goes up to 100% with our work. Your work is very descriptive and a joy to look at. :) Good show.
