My Dad and my nephew helped out on this rad installation by LeHumanBeing for my exhibition A Certain Evening Light. Unity is strength!

Recordando Acteal commemorates the 45 men, women, and children fallen at the hands of a paramilitary group and the complicit Mexican government 15 years ago. Read more about what happened here.

The Zapatista movement began 29 years ago in Chiapas, Mexico. There is a conference / podcast taking place today in San Cristobal, Chiapas to mark the 29th anniversary of the founding of EZLN. The event will discuss the movement's significance, its global impact, and many aspects of its almost 30-year history. Podcast info below:

My nephew had a whole pack of these stashed away, and he's down to hand some of 'em out at the opening of my show. (See post below for info.) Thanks Cams!

A few more examples of my Zapatista characters being repurposed... The graffiti piece and the embroidered pillow are tight. The fact someone is trying to slang t-shirts on Zazzle with a straight copy of my character is not. Go figure.

I ain't gonna front, the first time I heard of Botswana was from a Stetsasonics song back in the day. More recently, I heard about this mural in Botswana from Jasa THC. In case the image is too pixelated, it features a somewhat familiar character (and a bonus Ninja Tune logo...) I'm including the image below from the wall of Orange 20 for reference.

A friend of mine sent me this. He thinks it's a riff on my Zapatista characters. I'm kinda on the fence, even though he did spot it in Pasadena...

This the first Zapatista character I ever painted. If memory serves me right, I did it in 1998 at our Secret Headquarters high above Pico-Union:

My Mom found this hand-painted poster on a wall in Mexico, circa 2004:

I like how they changed the pencil in my original to a spray-can in their version. The random EZLNs and other handstyles are pretty cool too. I have no idea who made the poster... I guess that's how it should be.

Some more examples here.

"No + Sangre!" -No More Bloodshed!- proclaimed over 30,000 Zapatistas this past weekend in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, in solidarity with the National March for Peace with Justice and Dignity that took place in Mexico.

Zapatista communiqué available in Spanish here. I'll post information in English as soon as I get it.

Diggin' around the internets I found a few more examples of Zapatista/EZLN characters with a wee bit of a resemblance to mine... No?

See more here and here.
