Miguel Monkc recently received the Award of Excellence from Communications Arts 2021. The awarded was for his poster that is part of project created for the 1st Online Festival of Boleros (Cuba-Spain) 2020. The logo & poster were used to promote and identify the festival on social media. The poster was design in 4:5 ratio in order to fit the maximum vertical size of Instagram and Facebook posts, most frequently used social networks in Cuba.
The illustrations features people playing home activities while they sing and write songs. It was very important to reflect racial and gender diversity in his characters. Playing to reverse the pre-established concepts of gender and activities, Miguel gave his characters roles not commonly seen in Cuban society: a girl playing the guitar, a boy writing love songs, and another boy cooking.
