Quote from David Remnick, Editor, The New Yorker: "The election of Donald Trump to the Presidency is nothing less than a tragedy for the American republic, a tragedy for the Constitution, and a triumph for the forces, at home and abroad, of nativism, authoritarianism, misogyny, and racism. Trump’s shocking victory, his ascension to the Presidency, is a sickening event in the history of the United States and liberal democracy. On January 20, 2017, we will bid farewell to the first African-American President—a man of integrity, dignity, and generous spirit—and witness the inauguration of a con who did little to spurn endorsement by forces of xenophobia and white supremacy. It is impossible to react to this moment with anything less than revulsion and profound anxiety."

Manhatitlan: Mexican and American Cultures Intertwined by Felipe Galindo Published by Jorge Pinto Books. Introduction by Peter Canby, The New Yorker. 56 pg., 8.5 x 5.5", full color. "Feggo's work stands in the rich tradition of Mexico's socially engaged art, an art that strives, using humor and irony, to make sense out of our beautiful and ever more baffling world." -From the Introduction by Peter Canby "What a wicked sense of humor Galindo has. Mexican artifacts enact absurd acts of revenge on Big Apple institutions, a bit like anti-imperialist New Yorker cartoons." -The Washington Post "Galindo's appealing images superimpose Mexican icons over the New York cityscape, in a playful nod to the multiculturalism that helps make the city great." -Time Out New York

As cartoon editor of TheNew Yorker I especially enjoy Felipe’s carefully constructed sight gags, whose wordless humor unites all demographics in laughter.” — Bob Mankoff, Cartoon Editor, The New Yorker
