Announcing a Book of Paintings & Kickstarter

June 16, 2016

I’m really pumped to announce a book of my Oaxaca paintings, and a Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing. But first, let’s look at the most recent paintings! The first is the river/stream running through San Andreas Huayapam, and the second is a Tejate seller at the Pochote organic market.

Here’s the details:

Veteran underground cartoonist Steve Lafler is set to release his new book Oaxaca Painting Service in August. Lafler collects acrylic paintings depicting life in his adopted town of Oaxaca, Mexico.

The paintings document the small moments of life in Oaxaca, from open air markets to the thriving street food scene, and the nascent cult of mezcal, the distilled agave spirt that is gaining a toe-hold in the U.S. Market.

“I love the buzz and hum of daily life in Oaxaca. This mountain town is the cultural jewel of southern Mexico, and I’m on fire to capture it’s flavor in paint”, quips the artist.

Lafler is running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the publication of the book.

The Kickstarter URL:

Oaxaca Painting Service is a 40-page perfect bound limited edition book produced in full color.
