Press Release:

In 2014, I dumped a giant teardrop in Lake Michigan.

I returned to Chicago two ago weeks. Since then I’ve gone through 300 lbs. of clay.

I did grafitti when I lived here. I recently biked past one of my La Llorona roller pieces. Its still up by the Chicago River near Ashland & Archer. La Llorona, the weeping woman, is a mexican folk legand who was condemned to cry for eternity for having drowned her children. Mexican children are warned that if they misbehave La Llorona will take them away.

I wrote this in Mexico before the pandemic:
