He stressed that he will carry two album covers that he has made embodied in flannels. The first designed with characters from his comics with crocodiles, zombies and clowns playing bagpipes.
A second flannel consists of an image of the Bolivar Square in Caracas in the middle of a protest, but with the imaginary addition of giraffes, unicorns and dinosaurs.
«With my work I want to talk about the Venezuelan reality (…) Something as local as the bagpipes, I give it very international touches, with characters that could belong to a cartoon from cartoon Network“, he explained.
In his vision he wants to “insert the Venezuelan and local to the contemporary reality of the baroque image of the Internet.”
When talking about the exhibition, he said he was very happy because it will allow his work, like that of many artists, “to be appreciated in an artistic way and not purely commercial.”

He admits that the background of the image is a parody, due to the antagonism that exists between the police and vigilantes with the skateboarders.
In the second proposal, he clarified that it is the solution to a problem of drying skateboard decks. He described the resolution of this problem as “very complex in terms of engineering level.”
“I put all the resolution up as a sign that engineering and science is not untied from skateboarding,” he revealed.
