MICA’s TLaloC Takes Part in International Showcase

The work of Eduardo Corral, a.k.a. TLaloC, ’18 (Illustration Practice MFA), current faculty in MICA’s Illustration BFA program, was selected for Pictoline’s Third Biennial of Illustration, held in Mexico City. The exhibition is an unprecedented effort in Latin America to recognize, promote, and consolidate illustration as an artistic expression.

This edition of the event included participants from 20 different countries. TLaloC’s work, Los extranjeros, illustrates an abandoned place inhabited by “everyday aliens,” humanoid-looking characters who seem intimidating at first but who on closer examination tell a story of life, recovery, change, rebuilding, and resilience. The project stems from the illustrator’s official VISA status “Alien with Extraordinary Ability.”
