Mi Diaro Dominicado

Mi Diaro Dominicado

The following illustrations are inspired by my time in the Dominican Republic.

I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer from September, 1993 until December, 1995.

The Dominican people are wonderful, loud, exciting and beautiful .

The calligraphy is based upon some hand painted signs I saw

on a colmado [the ubiquitous corner store].

Ya, vamonos chofer!*

*This phrase, often accompanied by coño!, is yelled by people

that are tired of waiting for the guagua

[dominican bus, in which they jam more

passengers than there are seats] .
