The Lalo Store

This week the Disney Corporation planned to trademark one of the most beloved Mexican holidays, Dia de Los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead. Their plans were derailed by thousands and thousands of outraged people in social media, and me.

Thanks to the urging of those on Facebook and Twitter, I was moved to create a visual response to the Disney desmadre and PR disaster by drawing “Muerto Mouse,” a fictional movie poster that captures that company’s disastrous attempt to claim trademarks for the day we remember our dead relatives and ancestors. (The holiday only has origins from around five to ten thousand years ago, give or take a thousand years) Muerto Mouse, a giant calavera mouse, is depicted destroying a city in his quest to “trademark your cultura.”

Due to further popular demand, and coverage by, the Guardian UK, CNN, FOX, NBCLatino, CBS, you name it, (this image went viral like crazy!) I am making prints available for sale here, signed by the artist hisself! The 12″ x 18″ prints are glossy and sturdy, and are only $20 each, plus $5.95 for shipping and handling.

It will take me at least a week or two to get them out to you via USPS, have patience, I am a one-man band here. Please click on the Paypal Shopping Cart button and follow the instructions.

    Hi Lalo,

    Love the daily cartoons! I want to see more Sarah Palin mocking.

    I have a book that just came out. Will you take a look? It’s about a Hispanic 6th grader who wins a dragon statue in a district-wide writing contest. Of course the statue comes to life.

    Keep the laughs coming!

    Do you have the images from the Calendar posted anywhere? They would help in deciding which of the friends might be especially excited by the gift.

  4. The Calendar includes special calendar-sized versions Lalo’s Arizona running Liberty poster, the Occupy Wall Street poster where Mr Monopoly Man gets pulled down from his pedestal like Saddam Hussein, special La Cucaracha cartoons and an exhaustive listing of critical dates like Menudo Monday, International Chorizo Day and Cheech Marin’s birthday.

    Hi Lalo,
    I love your self-deportation movement. You were truly ahead of your time.

    The drawing for El Tapatio, pepper spray for “officers on the go” is spot-on.

  8. Brett says:

    Sent out a $20 check for the calendar months ago, but have not heard back. Have emailed as well, but no response. Was looking forward to the calendar artwork.

    Lalo Alcaraz is not funny;– he’s a cruel, insensitive boor. In a 10/22/12 strip he writes, “Hey Mitt Romney, if you want war with Iran so badly, why don’t you send all your five sons first? – - and your ten thousand cousins?” That’s false and rotten. Even a desperate politician wouldn’t stoop that far down in the gutter. Lalo needs psychiatric help. Too moch tequila I theenk.

  14. Robert Guzman says:

    i would like to buy the voteria sets–democrats and romney.

  23. I want to purchase 3 calendars but I cannot find a place to put in quantity – it only allows me to buy 1 at a time?

    I’ve been reading about Marco Rubio’s stranglehold for Cubans to the top of the list. Your “Be Cuban” cartoon this week in the LA Times caught me between the eyes. So here it goes. Can you help me get signatures?
    Cubans are getting preferential treatment on the path to citizenship. Not only is this wrong, I believe that it is unconstitutional. I believe that even some of our more conservative friends may agree.

    That’s why I created a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:

    “Stop the discrimination on the path to citizenship.”
