Cultural Mash-UP

BY LUCAS SPIVEY
@ VOL 6 ON JUN 03, 2016

Lucas Spivey says, your culture and other cultures are going to keep coming together. It's going to explode into products that have a market - like Cool Runnings - or things that are outlandish - like Jello wrestling - or sometimes things that are just forgettable - like McHuevos Rancheros. Like it or not, it’s a pretty interesting time to be alive.

@ 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.
