I’m blogging live and direct from Tianguis in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood. Cracked Chancla is running around preparing for the Monstrochikas event. The artist, Naomi Martinez, and her mom and sisters (I think) are setting up dozens of colorful cupcakes to match the colors in her Monstrochikas series of paintings.
There’s jazz is the background. Cool art, cool books, yummy cupcakes, free wi-fi and cool t-shirts (and we all know I love t-shirts).
But the best part is the life-sized nameless monster. I want to hug him. I think I will.
La pregunta: What would you name the monster?
P.S. I like Chuy. Naomi’s mom says his name has to be Latino. No Chad or Hunters.
