The image above was printed at sharks ink studio in Lyons Colorado near Boulder where Enrique’s most infamous work was created.
A woman drove several hours to Lyons Colorado and attacked Enrique’s work with an ax. Maybe we should let him work through his trauma by lending him the Stanford Axe and symbolically bless all the works in this show.
I also think it’s ironic to contrast the stereotype portrait of Ike the sandwich guy with this thingy; Better, there should be a sandwich named for Enrique Chagoya.

Actually correct me if I’m wrong but the work pictured above seems to be a collaboration with his wife Kara Maria.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 26 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $7 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
