I’m so happy to finally be able to finally be able to share this!!
This was my piece for Gold Medal: A Yuuri on Ice Fanbook (featuring only Latin American artists woo!!)
ALLOW ME TO TALK ABOUT THIS PIECE, PLEASE, BECAUSE I REALLY POURED MY LOVE FOR MEXICO HERE!!
The’re strolling down Coyoacán (the municipality in Mexico City where my mom grew up, and where I spent most of my childhood holidays), with pecked paper hanging over them (one of my favorite Mexican aesthetics). They’re both wearing Otomí embroidered shirts (Victor is wearing a belt as well), which is my favorite indigenous textile pattern, and embroidered wrist-bands with their names on it (a very silly Mexican souvenir you can get at mercaditos).
Victor is having a bollo (they have other names in the rest of the country, but we call them that way in Monterrey), which is basically ice cream in a plastic bag. I added this bc it’s a thing you see almost everywhere, and Yuuri is having an elotito with spicy chile. Because elotitos are the best (っ˘ڡ˘ς)
I hope you like it!!
