ESTRELLITA MIA 6: Exploring the dark side…

The December issue of Estrellita Mía 2016, was the beginning of slight changes inside the format of the fanzine. At the same time we were able to expand some pages and keep working with some of our favorites artists too.

The Santiago based artist Limón Camilo was the creator of this edition cover art, featuring the obscure TV-clown of the 80s chilean tv, «La tía Pucherito» against a background of neon pop explosions. The cover consisted in a sticker glued over a traslucent plastic sheet. The back cover was another sticker with a deformed version of the Tia Pucherito by Carlos Apablaza.

The second layer of cover art was by Los Angeles based artist V.K.7 («Pop») and for the back cover the amazing Warhol homage by New York’s GEA. The classic Campbell’s soup, Marilyn, the flowers and the Angel (a reference to the first period on Andy’s art) and the Brillo boxes but, perhaps, the center of this drawing sis Edie Sedwick, the fantastic and tragic Factory star from the filmmaking era of the white wig genius…
