Thank you, I appreciate it. I’d be surprised if Dick actually watched Husbands. He probably need not to. He experienced the real thing! Haha.

Originally from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Rene Almanza graduated from the School of Visual Arts of the UAN. He began working during his adolescence as a visual artist; first in graphic novels, underground fanzines, the newspapers of Monterey, and later in printed media mainly designing signs. In 2000 he joined the editorial/political cartoon department of the group Reforma, illustrating various articles. After Reforma, he joined the Shinseken Editorial group of Tokyo, working in a illustrated project which collected folk tales from around the world. Currently he is working with the publishing house Sirpus (Barcelona, Spain), illustrating a series of bilingual books on the history of the Zapotec communities of Oaxaca. Almanza has received several international recognitions for his beautifully frantic line work that exudes urgency, passion, and agitation. Many thanks to nearlya for this Tumblr Monday to introduce us Rene Almanza!

Quayola. from Captives


“In every block of marble I see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped, and perfect in attitude and action.

I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it.

The best artist has that thought alone which is contained within the marble shell; the sculptor’s hand can only break the spell

to free the figures slumbering in the stone.

The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.”

Michelangelo (1501)
