Sesame Street is a popular long-running television program geared towards children. It is an educational show and I am personally interested in the program and characters for the powerful nostalgia. Sesame Street served not only as a didactic platform, but also as entertainment (and, simply put, fun times!!). I had fun working on other paintings of this series, including characters such as the Count (a sort of re-configuration of Dracula) and Miss Piggy. One of the Count’s main goal is to teach children how to count. This page involves a “hybridized”, cross-cultural, multi-generational exploration involving the Mexican Loteria and Sesame Street characters, along with my perpetual fascination, critique and celebration of our dependence on tech-toys and gadgets.
