The Celebration Of Latino Influence In A New Great American Iconography

Click on pic to enlarge!
mexican american iconographyHere we see a young Mexican man stepping into the batter's box. In the background is the Obama logo as this aspiring Latino baseball player looks into the pitcher's eyes and readies to try and hit the ball out of the park. You'll notice that this baseball player has the colors of taco ingredients in his uniform. Yellow to represent the cheese, orange to represent the hot sauce and green to represent the fresh green crispy lettuce. This young man has recently immigrated to America and his heart is full of dreams, many of which have been inspired by the recent election of President Obama, a black man, as this brown-skinned batter has hopes of hitting the ball and getting on base, a symbol which could represent many things. It could mean his getting a good-paying job. It could represent his buying a home for his family. It could symbolize his getting an education or it could even mean, if he hits a home run, that this young man may some day grow up to be President of the United States just as Barack Obama did. There are many iconic symbols of America such as the bald eagle or apple pie, but I hope to see more evolve with a multi-cultural flair such as this one. I personally look forward to more and more Latinos living in this country and more and more mixing of the races which, in turn will help create a more beautiful collective iconography that consists of such inspiring symbols such as the bald eagle wearing a sombrero, the Statue of Liberty wearing a pancho or more tacos being sold at baseball games than hot dogs. Hot dogs are disgusting things, anyway, and tacos have much more powerful metaphorical implications than the American hot dog whose interpretation beyond its literal meaning pretty much stops at crude comparisons of it to a certain male sexual organ.

Reverend Wrightenstein's Experiments Warn Against Extremism Regarding Muticultural Unity

Click on pic to enlarge!
mexican ape man experimentHere we have the results of an evil experiment of Reverend Wrightenstein in which the head of a Mexican man is placed upon the head of a King Kong-sized gorilla and serves as the counterpart to another experiment in which the King Kong's head is placed upon the body of a white male Obama supporter. This should serve as a warning to people that we must keep these lofty ideas of multi-cultural unity on the plane of ideology and they should be put in practice by performing good deeds for one another. Mexicans should help whites who should help blacks as the Asians pitch in their part, also. This is a warning that none of us should be like the evil Reverend Wrightenstein and take these things LITERALLY, meaning, we should not take the body parts of people from another race and try to attach them on to a person of a different race. Within every political ideology there is inevitably a faction which gravitates toward extremism and I just don't want to see this idea of "multi-cultural unity" getting out of hand. The best way, I think, for this idea of racil unity to manifest itself physically, of course, is for different races to consider copulating with one anther as much as possible so as to have perfectly healthy multicultural babies. The "mixing of the races" should take place in the gene pool and not in the gruesome interchanging of body parts, please.

When Will Obama Visit Mexico?

Click on pic to enlarge!
taco disaster in MexicoThough there is alot going wrong in Mexico right now, this little snapshot shows that I think the hope Obama has inspired in us Americans should be extended to places such as Mexico. Obama traveled to Berlin over the summer and spoke before thousands upon thousands of people. There is talk that he is soon to travel to a Muslim nation and speak there. I'm sure at some point he will travel to Asia and Russia but what of places like Mexico? Obama went to Canada soon after taking office but what of our other North American neighbor south of us? Maybe I am naive but I find Mexico fascinating in its potential. When I think of it my heads fills with soaring visions of fiestas, beautiful women, hot sauce, tacos and the pink underwear you see in the pic above is intended to express my optimism in the face of Mexico's current struggles. Yes, I do often dress Republicans in pink underwear as sort of a joke but I think pink underwear can also be used to symbolize happiness, joy in the face of struggle and the sweet scent of feminine beauty. All of this can be found in Mexico!

It is actually my hope that in a backward sort of way, the problems the Mexican government is facing with the drug cartels will draw more attention to Mexico and make people more sympathetic toward its people. For a foreign country who has more immigrants to the U.S than any other, it seems strange that Mexico seems so often to be ignored by Americans except when they are hungry for Mexican food, want to go on Spring Break or are complaining about all the illegal aliens taking their jobs.

The Three Mexican Food Muses

Click on pic to enlarge!
obama coming out of nuclear tacoI got the idea for the image of these Three Mexican Food Muses while listening to Ray Charles and Willie Nelson sing that "Seven Spanish Angels" song while eating a big, messy jumbo burrito one night. The burrito messed me up so bad inside that later that night I was seeing visions of these three angels to please help me! While in most ways I think the mythology of Mexican food and the creativity and profound insight it nurtures can be seen as positive, there are certain types of "human explosions" that can get a little gross and icky when it comes to eating and digesting Mexican food. I am referring to the gastro-intestinal anguish that can ensue, some of which is so intense and leaves such a messy aftermath that the metaphor of "Nuclear Jalapeno Holocaust" may indeed apply. So it is that the purpose of my larger painting, "The Newtclear Tacos of Barocket Obomber" is in meant in most ways to portray explosions of a hopeful, happy kind, the Three Mexican Food Muses stand there in their sweet melancholy to remind us that though Mexican food is indeed tasty, too much of it can lead to war and destruction both within ourselves and with those we have to live and sleep with.

What Will Obama Add To The Mythology Of Mexico?

Click on pic to enlarge!
aztec woman with golden skullNot much has been said yet about how Obama plans to handle the situation in Mexico with all the corruption and drug cartels wreaking havoc and making it a real possibility that within Obama's time as President, Mexico could indeed collapse into total anarchy. What is generally considered a second world country could quickly join the third world if measures are not taken to help Mexico rid itself of the increasing violence and corruption it has ben faced with lately. I like to interpret the world's problems through the lense of werewolves, tacos and underwear. I envision Obama riding into Mexico on wild, giant wolf under a Guacamole Moon, accompanied by an army of alien sailors in their tightie whities, offering to give Mexico a "Change In Underwear You Can Believe In" in exchange for tasty tacos. As I presented in the larger painting, "Sailor Obama Meets The Girl With The Golden Skull", soon after being elected, obama had a meeting with "The Girl With The Golden Skull," an ageless Aztec Princess who allegedly gave him advice on what to do.

In another entry I explained the idea of Latina women being so beautiful, that their faces were so lovely that only a golden skull could support such beauty. But there is also the possibility that at one time, before the arrival of Evil Cortez, these women had no faces at all! That these golden skulls were out in the open for all to see and this was just too much beauty for the poor Aztec males to bear. They became distracted from their warrior duties so the preists had to perform plastic surgery on the women, giving them faces. They stretched upon their gleaming skulls the fallen faces and scalps of their enemies to somewhat subdue the sparkle and overpowering golden glow. The beauty of a faceless golden skull was just much to behold!
