If you are near Puerto Peñasco, Mexico this month, please check out Memuco‘s art exhibition on October 18 (full moon). Here is a beautiful poster for the event. I also believe he will be in Mexico for the whole month of October and the Day of the Dead on November 1 and 2. Also, I still cannot thank him enough for illustrating my book‘s cover!
Using one of the beautiful paintings that Memuco made for the cover of my book, I created a flyer for my World Oceans Day table. Please share this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks to attract as many people as you can to this awesome event. Unfortunately, the National Aquarium in Baltimore will not be able to host a table on July 6, so I will not be there on National Save the Vaquita Day. I look forward to possibly working with them in the future, though.
I’ll admit, I got a little teary-eyed after looking at this picture. Please don’t let the Vaquita follow in the footsteps of its unfortunate cousin, the Baiji. You can help by purchasing a t-shirt here: https://campaign.customink.com/savethevaquita.
I am going to give a sneak peek of the illustrations that are going to be in my book. The picture below is going to be for the “Taxonomy” chapter of the book. Also, William Whittenbury from the Muskwa Club has asked to use this picture for the introduction of one of their movies! I will post the movie series when it is completed. It promises to be awesome. Also, I will post some of the many drawings, posters, and projects my siblings and I have done in the past few years when I can.
Yet another poster (in Spanish) about the Vaquita. I believe it is by Memuco.
Here is another amazing poster from Memuco: http://visual.ly/unnatural-disasters. It really puts into perspective how endangered the Vaquita really is. The poster also features the Baiji (previous post) and the Yangtze River Finless Porpoise with a lot of information on each cetacean.
Here is the poster for Jimmy Maldonado’s Mexican short film, “Por Naturaleza” (“Naturally” in English). It appears to be about the Vaquita. I will try to learn more about it.
