Director's Statement

I was recruited by the ASU School of Transborder Studies to serve as their Artist in Residence for 2021-22. I am collaborating with ASU Professor Gilberto Lopez and his project to bring my comic strip/cartoon characters to life via animation in the fight to combat vaccine hesitancy in the Latino community. The Super Vaccine Vato character is a spin off of my Super Vato character and many of the characters in this series (Taco Cart Guy) are from my nationally syndicated La Cucaracha comic strip. This pilot is the first of 7 short episodes covering issues ranging from vaccine hesitancy to Covid's impact on mental health.
