I have been cleaning up my studio and office and re-arranging my wall decoration. I have all sorts of posters and things up there. One of the things I came across was this bumper sticker.
I know it’s not big, but I cannot currently use my scanner, so I had to go out on the web to get an image. I have not put the bumper sticker on my car (yet), but I bought it because it is so different. I bought mine on a visit to Houston, Texas at Casa Ramirez in the Heights.
At the time, I had done a lot of research on La Llorona for one of my lesson plans (here is the blog post) and recognized the illustration from Joe Hayes’ book. I bought it a while ago on Amazon.com, but the book and the bumper sticker can be found at Cinco Puntos Press, Mr. Hayes’ publisher. Here is the cover from the book:
I believe his story is set in New Mexico. I thought that it was interesting that the story is available on VHS and DVD. I wonder if it is narrated by Joe Hayes, showing the pages from the book, or if it is a live performance that has been videotaped. Oh, the illustrator is Vicki Trego Hill.
I may have to do a La Llorona themed poster for my CafePress Shop.
