If you thought tortillas couldn't possibly get any better, they just did. The Convergent Media Collective completely changed the game when they started using a laser cutter to print iconic faces on to their tortillas. Needless to say, the Selena Quintanilla tortilla is a hit in San Antonio, where the media group is based.
Joey Lopez, a founding member of the collective, says the idea to print faces on tortillas came from "abuelitas and tias seeing images on their tortillas." The tortillas also feature other faces such as Darth Vader and Texas Congressman Joaquin Castro.
It all started out when we were talking about our abuelitas and tias seeing images on their tortillas. Then @andrizzy had the idea to put images on tortillas and Jeremy Zunker helped us make it all happen with the use of a laser cutter @10bitworks . It was a crazy ride for the next couple months after making a mobile tortilla laser rig for @luminariasa with the help of @johnfrazee Good times for sure. #latinonewmedia #newmedia #newmediaart #newmediaartists @convergentmedia #tortilla #tortillas #tortillaart #sanantonio #sananto #puro #purosanantonio #selenaquintanilla #joaquincastro @joaquincastrotx @spurs #chicanoart #latinx
