“Piragüas” Part I

 Puerto Rico (My Caribbean Island) has a lot of traditions and vignettes of everyday life. I’ve decided to create a line (slowly and step by step) based on Puerto Rican themes with the intention to transfer them into cards and other variety of products. Here I am sharing one of the sketches (I will share more with you later on) that represent one of them: “Piragüas“, which is a Puerto Rican ice dessert shaped like a pyramid, consisting of shaved ice covered with fruit flavored syrop and sold by vendors also known as “piragüeros” in a small colorful (some wooden) push carts. (from wikipedia). You choose the favor you like such as: Sesame seed, passionfruit, lemon, tamarind, anise, cherry, coconut, cream, raspberry, pineapple, orange and grape. My favorite? Lemon with Tamarind! :p

Mi Isla caribeña Puerto Rico está llena de tradiciones y estampas típicas. He decidido poco a poco crear una línea basada en estos temas con la intención de transferir estos diseños a tarjetas entro otros productos que se puedan desarrollar paulatinamente. Aquí les comparto uno de los bocetos (luego comparto más) que representa esta estampa de la famosa antigua “Piragüa“. La piragüa es un postre puertorriqueño hecho de hielo raspado. El piragüero los vende y te lo entrega en forma de pirámide en un conito de papel. Tu escoges el sabor que quieres: coco, crema, tamarindo, limón, parcha, piña, anís, ajonjolí, cereza, frambuesa y china. ¡Mi favorito es el de limón con tamarindo!
