HG-Red-Lizard-Legend-of-the-Red-Lizard


We tell of the tale of the Red Lizard- the greatest, baddest and most magnificent Luchador of all time!


So in the beginning there was the design brief: to design materials for a new restaurant that was going to be called the Red Lizard and after much deliberation (A.K.A. momentarily being  stuck in creative limbo) we decided to return to the client with the idea that the RED LIZARD TAQUERIA was an homage to the RED LIZARD THE PERSON. Who? Yes! The Red Lizard, the greatest, baddest, most magnificent luchador of all time! (*heroic music plays*) The client said go ahead and roll and so we did.

The Legend of the Red Lizard
Thirty five years. That is how long the Red Lizard has remained undefeated. Increible! He is the undefeated, undisputed greatest luchador of all time! Yet no one knows much about him. What is his real name? Why doesn’t he ever take off his mask? And why does it seem like he has never aged?
 
His muscles still rise like a huge Mexican volcano and he erupts with speed that leaves all the dresses of the señoritas flailing in the wind. Some people say that the Red Lizard never shows his true nature because he is, in fact, half-man, half-lizard. Caramba!
 
And then there are stories on television that tell of him being a crimefighter. The secret weapon of the police. Our very own red-tailed superhero? This and so many legends surround the mysterious and marvelous Red Lizard!
We wrote and drew a comic book and then chopped up the story and put the parts into every designed piece of the restaurant – the menus, takeout bags, walls, tabletops, sauce bottles, Instagram banners – everywhere!
Rosa
The Bandida? Ah, beautiful, isn’t she? Many a man have fallen for the silent wonder of the city but don’t get your hopes up, Romeo! Rosa is so much more than meets the eye. Yeah, her real name is Rosa – bet you didn’t know that! She’s a teacher at the university who also teaches all the inner city street kids for free. For free, for real! She gives money to the poor. Brings sick people to the doctors and is always around to help.

Which doesn’t always turn out well for her. Like that one time the mob came to her part of town. They were taking money from the people, saying it was some form of tax, hah! Impuestos Ilegales – Illegal Taxes! You See? And then the mob took that money and made it go round in the gambling circuit. They took money from the people so the gangsters can have some fun. Crazy, right? Well Rosa, she took it back.
 
Turns out she was one mean fighter as well. She dressed up in her Bandida costume – something Antonio Banderas would wear in the movies – and took back what was rightfully owned by the people. 
 
Now the cops want to catch the Bandida but seguramente, no one will rat out this female Robin Hood!
