Hey! My name is Mr. Hot Salsa and I'm mostly a self taught cartoonist from Mexico.

When I was little, I always wanted to be a cartoonist, but my family always told me that wasn't a real job, and that I should look into something else. But one day during 2007, I turned on Nickelodeon and saw the cartoon that changed my whole life.
It was El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera. 
When I read the last names Gutierrez and Equihua and how the cartoon was about Mexico...
I thought, MEXICANS CAN MAKE CARTOONS TOO! This launched me to a quest to discover what I wanted to make and what piece of Mexico I wanted to share with the world too... and it just sprouted into my head one day in 2014. I've been working on Hot Salsa since that day, writing and designing an enormous world deep in lore and interesting characters.


What is Hot Salsa?
The story of Pico Salcedo, an impulsive ex-deputy turned bandit Jalapeño Pepper who is both gifted and cursed with his dad's last name. Why? His pops was one of the most wanted outlaws of his generation. The Good? Pico can abuse of his last name to get what he wants. The Bad? His dad made a lot of enemies... The Ugly? Because of Pico's babbling, the most dangerous bandit gang in Mexico is hot after his trail!
In this world, plants and vegetables replace animals and humans... 
Everyone abuses their plant traits to survive in the desert and every day life.
ALSO, time is stuck in a western era with no laws, turning Mexico into a salad bowl of rotten vegetable bandits growing in size by the years!

But I wanted MORE! What if drinking ancient Hot Sauce's gives you super powers?
What if Pico slowly grows a gang of charming vegetables from different states of Mexico?
What if there is an entire backstory full of characters and deep lore all connected in this web full of crazy novela levels of drama, spaghetti western action, and LOTS of Mexican Cowboy Vegetable puns?
 

Inspired by many things I love and grew up with including: Shonen Manga, Mucha Lucha, El Tigre, Pedro Infante, Jorge Negrete, Cantinflas and all the Golden Era Mexican Movies, El Libro Vaquero, Chespirito, Westerns, Novelas, Northern Mexico, Traditional Food, Ranchera and Cumbia Music...

Hot Salsa is my love letter to MEXICO for the entire world! A story that I can finally tell thanks to the power of the internet! Having the opportunity to make this show for you, would mean the entire world for me, as it's one of my biggest dreams in life.

Your support will be returned in a super spicy pilot episode produced by my studio: Scum House, to help show Hot Salsa to the world! And you will get some sweet rewards too!
