The Artwork

Chicano lettering with a Chucas Style Letters and "Pachuca Cross" symbol, this represent the chicano gangs and the loyalty to the people who are with you. The Chucas Letters are one of the frist styles created in the chicano neighborhoods.

The Artist

Why do you create? I grew up in a little neighborhood in Coacalco. I always saw graffiti in my neighborhood and since I was kid I´m interested in that graphic elements. When I was 13 years old I started to draw and paint some Homies characters and graffiti, writing "crack" in all walls, here born my eternal love for design letters, hood letters, after, I practiced classic calligraphy and now I'm teaching calligraphy, Bandana Estudio (design studio) director and graphic designer.
How do you work? I work by project, the people call me because they want me to design some letters for a clothing brand, tattoos, presents, etc. I make some sketches and I deliver the final work.
Has your creative process changed over time, if so, how? At the beginning I copied letters from other artist and I changed some things. Now I like to analyze the behavior of the letters in their most natural form, to be able to manipulate and customize them according to what each project requires. I do a lot of sketches to find the best option.
Do you consider yourself a full-time or part-time artist? A part-time artist, because I´m studing university. I´m design student but I don't dedicate all time to my personal work.
Besides creating, where else do you spend your time? At university or in the street, always with my homies.
