    I just found your blog thru the post on Col. Santa Maria la Ribera. The older gents artwork looks like prison art – the type done on hankerchiefs and envelopes with ball point pens….did you ever ask where he learned to draw? I didn’t read the articles yet in the papers…will do that. I liked the story on aloes and also always wondered about those, now I know more. The ones in LA frequently have little strings of red thread and ribbon tied to them.

    Thanks for you comment Cardie, but I have seen lots of prison art and I never got that impression from looking at Martinez’ work. Really it reminds me of the late Mexican artist, Martin Ramirez. Ramirez was a Mexican immigrant who spent more than 30 years in California psychiatric hospitals making art few people valued, like this artist Humberto Martinez. Also the e-mail subscription application is now working – thanks for letting me know.
