Manhatitlan: Mexican and American Cultures Intertwined by Felipe Galindo Published by Jorge Pinto Books. Introduction by Peter Canby, The New Yorker. 56 pg., 8.5 x 5.5", full color. "Feggo's work stands in the rich tradition of Mexico's socially engaged art, an art that strives, using humor and irony, to make sense out of our beautiful and ever more baffling world." -From the Introduction by Peter Canby "What a wicked sense of humor Galindo has. Mexican artifacts enact absurd acts of revenge on Big Apple institutions, a bit like anti-imperialist New Yorker cartoons." -The Washington Post "Galindo's appealing images superimpose Mexican icons over the New York cityscape, in a playful nod to the multiculturalism that helps make the city great." -Time Out New York

“Felipe’s work is not only good humored but good hearted and guaranteed to lift your spirits!” — Gahan Wilson (Playboy, The New Yorker)
“It is a rare cartoonist who appeals to such diverse readerships as The New Yorker, the Reader’s Digest, Barron’s, and Nickelodeon, to name just a few of the magazines where the widely published Felipe Galindo’s cartoons can be found. As cartoon editor of TheNew Yorker I especially enjoy Felipe’s carefully constructed sight gags, whose wordless humor unites all demographics in laughter.” — Bob Mankoff, Cartoon Editor, The New Yorker
Taking Liberties Book Cover
"Taking Liberties" presents witty and engaged images inspired by the Statue of Liberty drawn by Feggo, whose work has appeared in The New Yorker and numerous international publications. It is an homage to the iconic symbol and a celebration from the perspective of a Mexican immigrant artist. The illustrations and cartoons place Lady Liberty on imaginary scenes, and spark commentaries on issues such as social justice, immigration and American life.
This is a bilingual book -in English and Spanish- published by Now What Media, available through this website (scroll down) and on Amazon. It includes an introduction by the artist and a brief history of the Statue of Liberty plus commentaries on each image.

A Virtual Artist Talk with the Morris-Jumel Mansion Museum and the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance took place on April 22, 2021. To view the recorded talk (starts at 1:45) on YouTube please clickhere.
“Few of the artists, in fact, make hay of their biculturalism, Felipe Galindo (aka Feggo) being a notable exception for his cartoony pictures, including one depicting the Statue of Liberty done up as a Day of the Dead skeleton…On the bright side, Felipe’s comic watercolors seem fresh, their delicacy is sympathetic to so much drawing these days. And what a wicked sense of humor Galindo has. Mexican artifacts enact absurd acts of revenge on Big Apple institutions."--J. Dawson, The Washington Post
