BREAK THE SILENCE
Everything we have silenced for something (no gender) has to end between us. "Breaking the silence" is ending with what is established, with what they have imposed to us, with the old patterns, with what we no longer want. This piece talks about everything we want to remove from our lives and leave behind to start something new. To reinvent ourselves and continue. Being the creator of your life from now on.
Dedicated to creating strategy, visual communication and experiences that connect projects and brands with contemporary culture.
Composition inspired by the anatomy and the main elements of the maguey plant from which VERDE is extracted. The composition reflects the balance that the liquid has; Through the infinity symbol, we represent the natural cycles of which we are a part physically and spiritually.

Ojo Jaguar is a personal vision of the Oaxacan mystique that exists around mezcal. The mask as the face of alchemy; the eye, the door of perception that the substance opens. The inspiration is the Oaxacan climate, the dry heat and the dust that sticks to your face. The color of the earth and the smell of rain. The background music and the dance that comes out of nowhere.

The main idea for this designs is based on an urban local slang. Here in Berlin, you can call yourself or a friend a “Schnäppervogel" if you had a lot of shots during a fun night with your close ones. It translate roughly like “shot bird" or "liquor bird”, but not at all in a derogatory way. It’s more a fun, loving nickname which reminds us of the fun nights and good times with friends during a night out.
A green lizard with resilient skin, an armor to dance in the impossible. I made this drawing thinking about Xite Totec, “our flayed lord”, a Mexican debt that is represented using animal skins and it symbolizes renewal. I like the idea of using skin as a metaphor for becoming something else and acquiring the qualities of the animal to which the skin belonged. In this case a lizard symbolizes strength, skill and patience, it is an ancient and long-lived animal, beautiful and resistant by nature. I think it's a desirable skin these days.

My motivation for the label was the Tradition and Heritage, they both apply to VERDE Mezcal and the culture as a graffiti artist. I designed letters that express the tradition of the culture with the heritage of VERDE Mezcal to represent the pride we have for our Latino ancestry.

The main inspiration comes from those blissful moments with friends. The energy you feel when you are having drinks with the ones you love fills you up with a warm feeling in more ways than one. Honey represents the moment where you close your eyes just to take it all in. Life becomes a little more whimsical, a little more vibrant.

The art work was created based on the idea that despite all the uncertainty and anxiety with the pandemic, you always have to keep smiling.
Illustrator, Queer and Virgo. Feeling is punk. Mariana Lorenzo, also known as Maremoto is a self-taught illustrator, visual artist, and cartoonist from Mexico City. Her work thrives on tenderness and radical vulnerability. Use illustration as a vehicle to tell stories about self-love, feminism, mental health, human rights, and the queer experience. Her 10- year-old self would be very proud to know that when she grew up, her job is to draw.
This illustration made especially for the Mezcal Verde label is inspired by the mother from whom all things are born, a mother earth from which arises the maguey that blooms only once during its life.

The indigenous worldview teaches us to observe our environment and take advantage of every part of its resources. It has been transformed into different forms of expression, such as clothing, music, and drinking. In the celebration of Holy Week the "devils" appear, characters with masks of amorphous faces and animal spirits, which symbolize the burning of Judas, and in general personify the fight of evil over the good. These masks also contain a hair made of Ixtle, a fiber extracted mainly from the agave, whose use dates back to prehispanic times. In festival of the devils it has a main purpose; burn the devil's ixtle, the masked characters seek to light the hair of their companions and go unnoticed and thus end the spiritual conflict by killing the devil. “Little by little, a great number of devils and Jews began to emerge, emerging from the darkness and gloom. People hope they can burn their huge ixtle hair to end sin, death, and betrayal. And the cry of "You burn, devil, you burn!"

t's called "the tlachiquero.” It is a trade that has existed for a long time. "Without magueys there cannot be tlachiquero, without tlachiquero there cannot be pulque and without pulque there is nothing, there is no pachanga, there is no mitote, they would say"

This design is based off an existing work of art that I have exhibited before but i added the "mezcal" hand lettering in photoshop. Making a new original work would not be possible unless you negotiated through my gallery and commission work runs a lot higher than 600. The existing work with text that I provided in the last email is the one I designated for this project because it is a self portrait so you can use my face and I don't need to get permission from someone else who's portrait i've done. The work I do is portraiture of people I know personally so I would need their permission to use their image. That is why I chose that piece because it is of me.
