Down here, even the rum is dusty.
There’s never a breeze to give you an ounce of air.
The sweat trickles down your face, down your arms, down your back.
En Blanco Y Negro
There’s always a rumble getting ready to roll.
Everybody’s got ideas.
Everybody’s got opinions.
Everybody’s got guns.
It’s the way it is down here.
It is what it is.
Got a problem?
Meet me at the hotel.
It’s all a beautiful illusion.
Que está engañando a quién?
Another incredible visual creation from the incomprable Stefan Prohaczka, author and creative designer of Diesel City. I’ve written about Stefan before, and how I’m going to feature some of his dieselpunk/noir work here.
Direct from Paris, he’s been hard at work taking initial concepts from myself and author (of The Troubleshooter: New Haven Blues) Bard Constantine and just making outstanding visual creations.
When Stefan emailed this piece to Bard and myself a few weeks ago, I got chills.
So much of a storyline here, I didn’t know where to start.
He titled it El Gringo (Who’s Fooling Who?) – hence Que está engañando a quién? above. And then we three got into an email discussion about Latin noir….classic flicks like Touch of Evil, Gilda, or The Big Steal. There are some scenes in Out Of The Pas,t one of my favorite noir files, which take place in Mexico as well.
It’s a environment rife for noir, and Stefan captured it here.
He continues to amaze.
And speaking of storylines, Bard has been hard at work too. The Troubleshooter: Red-Eyed Killer is on its way….
