El Guapo

*UPDATE: Hector, the director of TIYPO magazine, liked El Guapo so much (seriously, how could any hot blooded Mexican man resist his handsome manliness) that he decided to punish the whole country of Mexico by making little Guapo the cover and back cover too!


For their latest issue, the super hip Mexican designers from TIYPO magazine asked me (and various other artists) to do an illustration based anything that starts with the letter from the alphabet. By pure luck I got the "G". And we could only use the colors black and pink (!).

Here's my piece titled "Guapo" which means handsome.

This is Jorge's first foray into realism.
Hyper-realism, some would argue.

Nice job, Dude!
