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.

My Son, The Dinosaur

BY SARAH COON
IN AKRON

A key rule at the heart of improvisational theatre is saying "Yes, and" - you not only accept what your partner is giving you, but you build on it.  Spreading that philosophy from the rehearsal room into your life is how Alfred the dinosaur was born.  He's a small stuffed green T-rex that I gave to my husband as a wedding gift.  Over the years that we've been together, Alfred has developed a detailed mythology: he's a super spy, his favorite food is tacos, he likes superhero movies, and he hates bedtimes.  Alfred is an example of how we can find room for play in our lives, and how it can bring us together.
