Here are some shots of the second mural I painted in Monterrey for the Seres Queridos project. The figure is Vitaliano Cerda, who runs a used book shop in the center of the city. A much more serious looking counterpart to Régulo. I painted this one a little looser and faster than usual. The red background designs were painted by Sanez, a super talented young artist from Monterrey. His designs often include a mix of animals native to northern Mexico and have a strong indigenous influence. Really cool stuff. That last wall was a little piece I did right afterward in Colorado Springs. He's a paletero (ice cream seller) I took pictures of in Phoenix.
