Recognizing 5 years of Rezpiral

Illustrations by me Alex White-Mazzarella, artist and facilitator, turned into seriagraphy by Lapiztola, and printed on handmade amate paper . This was an especially long process that began in November of 2020 and closed with printing in July 2021. The effort to create, share and ultimately transmit a few special images of perspectives and significance from 5 years of friendship and learnings, with you our collaborator and consumer community.

  1. The woman mezcalera in charge, despite the supposed man’s world
  2. Amidst a first – transplanting agave to a land managed by Aureliano – the first time el Pueblo de Zimatlan has ever seen Tobala farmed
  3. Cortando el Corazon en la Sierra Norte
  4. What was before a vision is now a responsibility and labor for a family – magueyes and milpa on a land with special significance
