Evolution of Estamos Unidos 2012 Poster

I was honored to create this limited edition lithograph in support of President Barack Obama available at Obama for America. As a Latino and father I have witnessed firsthand the power of education. In my work as a children's book illustrator I travel around the country working with kids and teachers to promote literacy and reading. President Obama supports early education programs for children and has doubled Pell Grants so working families can afford college. His bold actions to fix the broken immigration system and support of the Dream Act prove he is on our side.

Thanks to Christopher Dilts, official campaign photographer for the wonderful photo that inspired my painting and to Sean Bacon and Candice López who teach design at San Diego City College for consulting on type design. 

Update: The poster sold at the Obama store. Thanks to all who purchased it in support of the re-election of President Obama.

Recuerdos de Mexico

I know you haven't heard from me all summer. I've spent the last 2 months wandering the cobblestone streets of San Miguel de Allende. Sometimes you just need to take a break,
then open your eyes.
