Finding My Cultural Voice in Comics

BY RUDY VASQUEZ
@ VOL 16 ON JUN 29, 2017

By day Rudy Vasquez is the mild mannered Marketing and Communications Manager for El Paso’s Downtown Management District (DMD)…but by night Rudy pursues his amazing passion for comic animation artistry.

Rudy has worked for independent comic book publishers as a work-for-hire sequential artist for years, but has not published any creator owned work. Now, the artist is laying the foundation for a creator owned project that is an expression of his own voice. In this journey, he has discovered a culturally rich context that reflects life on the border more so, than life in a completely make believe world.

BY SUZIE LEE

Sound healer, Suzie Lee, grew up singing harmony with her mother. Fast forward through musical theater camps, jazz choir, and a cappella groups, Suzie developed her vocal gift with crystal singing bowls. She describes this as "the single most relaxing and soothing sensation I had ever experienced...The first thought I had was that my ancestors were singing along with me."

Her presentation focuses on the theory of sound healing, the unique features of the crystal singing bowls, and a demonstration of her work in this field.
