Mr. Mendoza's Paintbrush

Midwest Book Review

Mr. Mendoza's Paintbrush is an illustrated adult comic book version of the life of Rosario, Mexico's “king of graffiti,” who wrote “Deflate your pomp or float away!” in paints on the body of an unexpectedly exhumed monk. Mr Mendoza's Paintbrush is a stunningly illustrated life story that absolutely transcends into great art myth at the end. The humor and originality of the artist are showcased in this amazing graphic biography. Collectors of woodblock style art such as that done by Christopher Cardinale will want to add this latest work to their treasures. It is an evolving experience of the macabre and the sacred intertwined, evocative and haunting in its tone. Adult themes and jokes make this a choice more suitable for mature young adults and of course fun-loving mature adults as well.
