A friend at work brought a poster of this work back from California for me. The artist, Julio Cesar Morales, is part of the Los Angeles County Art Museum’s Phantom Sightings Exhibit. Coming from my friend, Morales’ work represents the ways illegal immigrants have attempted to enter the United States. I really like the extra element this brings to the simple watercolors. I couldn’t find a Web site with a good gallery, but a good ol‘ Google image search is definitely worth checking out.
