This piece is in homage to every 'tiendita' in Santa Clara County where you bought your first bag of hot cheetos, your first paleta, your first Arizona Iced-Tea, your first 40oz, your first box of condoms, your first swisher, etc!

Growing up in Gilroy, I would attend an after-school youth center/program called MACSA (unfortunately it no longer exists). When they would close, my mom would pick me up and I would always ask if she could buy me a bag of hot cheetos at La Flor De Jalisco (@laflordejalisco408) for only 99 cents. Yes, I am that old lol! Even if she didn't have any money, she would help me find loose change in the car just so I can get my hot cheeto fix; she's the real MVP! Today, La Flor De Jalisco still stands even after we went through a global pandemic and I would say that it is thriving especially now that they added a taqueria! This piece is a part of a series of mixed media drawings highlighting popular businesses and locally recognized buildings in Gilroy, CA.
