This is a mural I painted recently with Retna in Los Angeles, on a school right across from MacArthur Park. As usual, I painted the figures, and Retna painted the lettering and background. The mural was donated to the MacArthur Park Primary Center by Pampers, who held a contest as part of their "Every Little Miracle" campaign calling for Latina moms to share the stories of their miracle babies. The ten stories chosen were honored by having the children's names displayed on the mural. Thanks to Everyone from the school, Paine and Pampers for making it possible, everyone that came by and showed support, and special thanks to Kim & Madeleine for modeling.

This is a painting commissioned by Cirque du Soleil/Safewalls out of Montreal, Canada. It is part of a touring exhibition created by three art lovers working within Cirque du Soleil. SAFEWALLS commissions new artists every month to create alternate posters of Cirque du Soleil’s shows. The show represented here is OVO, with one of its spider characters being the inspiration.
