Somehow I’ve acquired a small obsession with Lucha Libres…Mexican Wrestlers. I think it started when I went to Mexico for study abroad a few summers ago. I bought several Luchador masks to bring back to my brothers. Since then, my poor brother Aaron has born the brunt of my fascination; every birthday and Christmas I find some new paraphernalia to give him, whether it’s post cards or figurines or Lotto games.
I would love to see this show some day. My favorite is “Octagoncito.”
I wanted to make Aaron a Lucha tshirt, so I drew up this guy. The caption says “Where are the Luchadors in a crazy world?” I found a Lucha website with the caption “Who fights for honor in a world gone mad?” which is excellent, but my Spanish isn’t that good.
