Upwind Studio is currently where you can purchase the works of Alexis Mendez and the French Fury. As of January 2019, 5% of total quarterly sales of Alexis’ work go to the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, AFSP, and the Sierra Club. Profits from any sales of the French Fury’s works go to a relocation and grad school fund.
We are still working on adding content and tweaking functionality, so please bear with us. In the meantime, here are other places to peruse while we dilligently work on the final form of this website!
Alex’s website, an as-yet non-exhaustive compendium of his works. He and I managed to shoot a lot of his archives but he was so prolific, there is a lot of it still out there, undocumented. This is an on-going project, and with the assistance of everyone who cares for his artwork, I hope to complete it in the next couple of years.
Aude Li Sing’s neglected (but currently undergoing some clean-up) repository of personal projects, including illustration work and travel photos.
Alex may not be able to travel in his physical form, but Pocket Alex and El Humano Alexis caps can! Our friends and family are the most wonderful folks and will be taking him along on their travels. In 2018, he visited both Canadian coasts, Australia, Italy, Mexico, some of Europe, went across the US and even made a pit stop in Fiji. Not too shabby for a paper man, right?
