Me and the Copacabana Girls
Fresa, Vainilla, Edel, Guayaba and Limon
Everyone's posting about where their work has taken them, so I thought I'd throw this one into the mix.
Back in 2005 myself and three other artists did Illustrations for a book of stamps on Latin Dance for the Postal Service. To unveil it, your U.S. Postal Service threw a really big party at the Copacabana in New York. They had Willie Colon play all night, there was a lot of dancing, and the Copa Girls really got the crowd going. They dressed in colors matching the dancers in the stamps and did performances of the dances that were illustrated. The Mambo, Cha-Cha-Cha, Salsa, and Merengue. They then proceeded to dance with me! Especially the one on the right up there in the green dress, I don't know, what can I say, it's good to be an illustrator.
I have no idea how my wife lets me get away with this stuff. I love her.
