Dynamic Lucia Cuellar est 2014.

Dynamic Lucia

My grandmothers name was Lucia Castillo Cuellar
My aunt Linda Cuellar Gonzales gave me my abuelitas dynamic sewing machine
That my grandfather Augustine modified from a manuel to motor driven.
Here is the machine that I learned on as a kid
My wela was the one who taught me to thread and sew
So I dedicated this line to her loving memory.
Instilled with pride and passíon 
Que viva rasquachismo!
Soy chicaña y Que¿

My ten favorite things ....in 2010

The beautiful Christine Hernandez wrote an article for San Antonio magazine in Feburary 2010
For their "I Love S.A.: The Love Issue" edition 

I was
Honored to be included in the issue
The top ten things have changed 

The jive refried drink still exists at bubblehead tea....just not my favorite any more.
Now I drink craft beer that taste like coconut and well it's beer! 
No longer living in Southtown ....i do miss it ..but not really, I'm always still in the hood
I'm just now living on the westside, my barrio Lindo and I love it...
I still love the Agosto taco at Tito's ...recently had it again ..after years of not.
I love Japan
I love hunting for goods
 I Love the then new friendly spot
My gatos!,,,,
My IPAD .........omg 
But I love DIGITAL...
Early adapter

The First night of Cornyation Fiesta 2014

I arrived early at the Empire Theater..for opening night of Cornyation, a mad crazy parody of the official 
Coronation of the Queens Official Fiesta Royalty ....the three day debauchery, raises money for 
Aids related organizations. It's all out creatives in the house...San Antonio's drag and creative artist community come together to put a show on like no other...this is year 49. 
So these images are the calm before the cascarone cracks.
These are from day One
Two more to go

(Yes, I know we shouldn't celebrate fiesta , with all it's evil oppression & mentality....       )
