Mr. Mendoza's Paintbrush

It's always exciting when an unexpected project turns out unexpectedly wonderful. Here's a look at the cover for Luis's "comic book" -- a graphic interpretation of his short story "Mr. Mendoza's Paintbrush." The artist is the incredible muralist Christopher Cardinale who takes an important social justice stance in his work. He actually traveled to Rosario, the small town where Luis's family is from, to see firsthand Luis's inspirations.

Published by Cinco Puntos Press out of El Paso, "Mr. Mendoza's Paintbrush" is scheduled for release March 1. You can preorder it at
and read more about it (and other wonderful books) at Cinco Puntos Press.
