El Vato Suave
  Rodolfo Garcia a.k.a. "Don Fito: El Vato Suave" of La Carpa Garcia.       

La Carpa Garcia

SaySi's production of "La Carpa Garcia" , the true story of a tent show from San Antonio, Texas,had another successful run this past weekend with sold out shows for the entire weekend! Once again I had the honor and pleasure of playing the role of the elderly Rodolfo Garcia a.k.a. El Vato Suave: Don Fito, featured clown of the Carpa Garcia.

 La Carpa Garcia was family owned Mexican American circus/ theatre show that traveled across the southwest during the first half of the 20th century. It's a little known piece of San Antonio's history that thankfully is being preserved and shared with San Antonians.

Mini Mural Project

This past summer I was one of several artists selected to participate in San Anto Cultural Arts "Mini Mural Project". We designed and painted a mural on a special fabric and when completed would be permanently placed on a wall. My mural depicted iconic masked Mexican wrestler Mil Mascaras on a postage stamp.
