Taco de Ojo Latin American Anthology

Taco de Ojo means “to get an eyeful” in Spanish, and is generally used to refer to checking someone out. The creators are re-appropriating the term to “refer to images which provide food for thought: stories which spill off the page and continue to grow in the subconscious long after you have put our book down.”

There’s a wide range of styles and formats;  sequential art, single panel cartoons, illustrations, collage, mixed media, prose, and poetry. Many have English translations. The anthology features over 70 collaborators.  At times, Taco de Ojo reminded me of a Latino version of Art Speigelman’s groundbreaking Raw Magazine.
