I’d like to present to you: Gustavo Fring from Breaking Bad. I recently watched this show from start to end and it was fantastic! As many of you know, they won a number of Emmys recently and I believe they completely deserved it.
In light of this amazing show, I’ve created this portrait of Gustavo Fring, owner of Los Pollos Hermanos and drug lord. He is a Chilean national, who spent some time in Mexico to get his foot in the door of the methamphetamine drug trade. Later, he founds and builds up a fast-food chain – Los Pollos Hermanos – which he uses as a curtain for his drug business.
As he spent time in Mexico and has daily contact with Mexicans, I drew the left side of this portrait in a stylised form of Mexican Day of the Dead skulls. It is also a reference to a certain episode of a certain season, which I will let you figure out so as to avoid spoilers ;)
You can get this printed on a T-shirt of your preferred size and colour at my online T-shirt shop here!
