Leonardo González has become the it illustrator for the current crisis. We go on a tour of his amazing oeuvre.
“What are you doing for Venezuela?”
It’s a question that haunts Venezuelans abroad
A few months ago, Leonardo González emailed us with this same concern in his gut. He lives in Berlin. He’d been working in a couple of illustrations depicting the crisis and wanted to put them to good use.
It was an easy yes.
Apart from having seen a couple of his pieces going around, I knew he was one of the masterminds behind the art direction of La Vida Boheme’s “Flamingo” video. Take your time to watch this gem.
Beyond gracing a few of our posts with his awesome talent (Clapartheid; La Rural; Looking back; Ramón; Rey Momo), Leonardo is on a killing streak. Showing that the best you can do for Venezuela is to find a way to help with creativity and what you are best at. Stick to your guns.
Check out Leo’s work on the current crisis.

We’ve been able to hang on for 19 years in one of the craziest media landscapes in the world. Now, the difficulty level was raised abruptly with the global pandemic. We’ve seen different media outlets in Venezuela (and abroad) cutting personnel to avoid closing shop. This is something we’re looking to avoid at all costs, and it seems we will. But your collaboration goes a long way in helping us weather the storm.Donate
