JOSE GUADALUPE POSADA: The Art & Satire ... A Lighter Look at the Darker Side of Humanity (In Memory of Isabella)

This induction into the "RCJ MUSIC/ ART'S HONOUR ROLL SOCIETY" will be to take a look at the magnificent work of Mr. Jose Guadalupe Posada. His art, satire, illustration's, had a large impact of influence as well on several latino artist's till this day, and even hit some controversy ... politically, socially, and religiously in his day, and took a lighter satirical look as well of the dark side of human nature. Although he may have not passed away in the best financial shape, he lived a full life and loved his work! And Thank You Sir ... His fire still inspire's!

I first ran into his work year's ago through an old friend Isabella Rivera(RIP), who was a fan of his work, and the related art's of "Dia de la Muertos" ... so I wanted to dedicate this posting in her memory as well.

Jose G. Posada, grabador ... Thanx to FRANCISCO MUNDO

Odd there must be something in the "force" as I wrote something similar last night about the same time.
