|Raúl the Third|
Raúl the Third took us through some of the projects he's working on
He's a believer in being able to comfortably tap into your ideas, oftentimes at a moment's notice. That means always having your tools at the ready, and true to his word, he carries an assortment of paper with him at all times in case inspiration strikes.
In his twenties Raúl created a lot of zines, making copies of them at Kinko's and sending them out to friends, family, people he admired, and people he wanted to work with. It made the world seem smaller; instead of working in isolation, it helped him feel like part of a community of like-minded artists who were all creating their own work. That zine aesthetic very much influenced the Lowriders books, which were conceived to look like something created by a bored kid sitting in class drawing on his notebook paper, using the only available materials: Bic ballpoint pens, for example.
