My mother Sylvia grew up in Little Village and is a proud Chicagoan and Mexicana. She has been an early childhood advocate most of her life - all while raising a family and dealing with various immunodeficiency diseases. My siblings and I love to refer to her as "Mother Earth." She has always used art to make the days flow better. Nowadays the pen is elusive, but she is so proud to share some of her art with you beautiful people. We hope her sublime work helps you find some peace in your days.

Kites and Strings, the podcast about creativity, was thrilled to interview Luis Sahagun, a Mexico-born, Chicago Heights-raised artist. If you were lucky you caught Luis' exhibit entitled "Both Eagle and Serpent" at the Chicago Cultural Center in early 2020 before COVID closed it. NewCity says his artwork, with titles like Pain is our North Star and An Old God Renewed are "primal amalgamations that hold deep magic."
