Growing up in East LA, Andrew often played Loteria with his brothers, and he found the images mesmerizing. Now, with a star-studded career, Andrew tells his story through ten Loteria cards, re-imagined through his queer Latinx experience in beauty. This hardcover edition features 20 stunning photographs of queerified Loteria cards, with original makeup and wardrobe in exquisite settings, all conceived by Andrew and produced by Andrew and his team. Each of the ten cards introduces a different chapter in Andrew’s life and career, from “La Rosa” and “La Sirena” to “La Dama” and “El Muerte,” illustrating his journey from a first-generation Boyle Heights family to Andrew’s breakout season on American Beauty Star. “Reading his book and admiring the incredible artistry he creates is truly a journey of realization. The cards and corresponding essays moved me to tears and filled me with joy. He is sharing himself in the most open way an artist can… with the Truth. I know whomever decides to read this incredible offering of Andrew’s Life in Art will be blessed with the stories and work of a sacred life.” - Cree Summer, actress, singer, @iamcreesummer “Through his own spin on this Mexican card game, Andrew finds himself and his mentality of growth. I truly appreciate the inspiration here.” - Elan Sorrell, @elansoreal “Looking for a great manifesto to read...?
