There is an article about Colin Matthes’ Carlos Cortez mural at OnMilwaukee.com:
Mural project is a work of admiration and kindred consciousness

“The campaign increased my desire to make something really graphic with a specific message but it also made me want to focus on something that celebrated something a little more than ‘Stop this. Or no that.’ I wanted to do something celebratory about someone I admire and don’t hear much about and that is how I got to Carlos Cortez,” Matthes said.

There is a review of Justseeds book Firebrands: Portraits From the Americas on the ElevateDifference.com by Clarisse Thorn:
