Ya estoy de vuelta, y como es de esperar, traigo un nuevo pin-up. Por primera vez, he podido terminar una pintura con el tema del "Día de Muertos", algo que había querido hacer por muchos años. Debido a la importancia de este proyecto a nivel personal, decidí usar como modelo de referencia a alguien que reflejara no solamente el estilo de mi trabajo, sino también el espíritu del festejo tal y como la veía en mi mente. Es por eso que supe inmediatamente que esa modelo debía ser Lisa Del Toro, sin lugar a dudas. Me produce gran orgullo y satisfacción poder seguir colaborando con una modelo tan bella y talentosa como lo es ella. Muchas gracias, Lisa, por ese apoyo que le has dado a mi trabajo durante todos estos años. De verdad, mis respetos para ti, mi amiga.

Como ya lo mencioné, este proyecto tiene un gran valor personal para mí, muy parecido a lo que representa la ilustración conmemorando el Día de Independencia de México cada año. Ambos tipos de imágenes reflejan tradiciones e ideas que forman parte fundamental de la cultura popular mexicana. Espero les guste este pin-up y que este sea el comienzo de una nueva tradición en lo que respecta a las imágenes de mi portafolio.

Muchísimas gracias a todos mis patrones por seguirme apoyando. Cada contribución da un nuevo aliento a mi trabajo, lo deja seguir evolucionando a su propio ritmo y avanzar en su propia dirección. Eso precisamente, el tener esa libertad en cuanto a mi arte, es algo que no tiene precio. De nuevo, muchísimas gracias a cada uno de ustedes.

I am back, and as expected, I am bringing a new pin-up with me. For the first ever, I was able to render a painting with the "Day of the Dead" theme, something that I had wanted to do for a long time. Due to the importance of this project at a personal level, I chose my reference model to be somebody that would not only reflect the style of my work, but also the spirit of the celebration the same way I saw it inside my head. That is why I knew right away that the this place was reserved for Lisa Del Toro, no question about it. I am truly proud and happy to be able to keep collaborating with her, such a beautiful and talented model. Thank you so much, Lisa, for all your support towards my artwork during all these past years. A tip of the hat for you, my friend.

As I mentioned it before, this project bears a great personal value, very similar to what the yearly pin-up of Mexican Independence Day represents. Both images reflect traditions and ideas that are deeply embedded in the Mexican popular culture. I hope you like this pin-up and also hope for this to be the beginning in a new tradition when it comes to my portfolio of images.

Thank you much to all my patrons out there for their continuous support. Every single contribution breathes life to my work, as it allows it to keep evolving at its own pace and also walk towards its own direction. That, the fact of having freedom with it comes to my art, is truly priceless. Again, thank you much to each one of you.
