Attending the first ever LATINO COMICS EXPO is Bay Area cartoonist/folk artist Jaime Crespo. Jaime's comics include Tales From the Edge of Hell and comic books Tortilla, Narcolepsy Dreams, Slices and Numb Skull. Jaime's work has appeared in newspapers, zines, books and comics in the U.S. and abroad.
Jaime has also contributed artwork for gallery shows. In fact, during the same weekend as the Expo, Jaime is actually curating and exhibiting in a group show on Friday, May 6. Held at Toby's Feed Barn in San Anselmo, CA., the show is called "FOUR MEXICANS AND A WHITE GIRL WALK INTO A GALLERY". Also exhibiting in that same show is LATINO COMICS EXPO co-founder/exhibitor Javier Hernandez.
In addition to his comics and artwork, Jaime hosts "FAULTLINE RADIO WITH JAIME CRESPO" every Tuesday evening from 8:30-10:30 pm on KWMR.
For the EXPO, Jaime will be debuting two new books, TORTILLA 2 and LAST SLICE. He's provided us with some sample images from the books. Please come visit Jaime and the other creators at the Cartoon Art Museum on May 7 & 8 for the LATINO COMICS EXPO.
