Blaxican Tag

Blaxican Sticker

The first time I heard the term “Blaxican” was from journalist and writer Walter Thompson. I’m not sure if he coined the term but he put together a project called “Blaxicans of LA” that made me feel seen. I grew up seeing these Black and Mexican folks, their parents, kids, and their families. It’s not a secret that Black and Brown folks have been making babies for ages. From California to the South, the midwest and the East Coast.

For this image I thought it would be dope to juxtapose Papel Picado (historic Mexican art form ) with an outline of the continent of Africa where humanity originated. If you’re Black and Mexican please let me know if I did this justice. If you approve please cop two. One for you and one for a friend. Thanks for reading. Just out here trying my best to make work that means something to me culturally.

Children’s portrait 44 – Zulu

I don’t know this young man personally but this was one of the portraits commissioned awhile ago for a kickstarte campaign I ran. This and a copy of my book was a gift for the contribution.  If I recall though, this little one is both Chicano (dad) and African American (mom). His name? I’m glad you asked! He was named after the Zulu Nation (Hip hop community started in the BX, now world wide) and the legendary Shaka Zulu.
If you or someone you know is interested in commissioning a portrait of a child, please tell them to email me at or check out my Etsy page for rates.
