The Tlacuilo and Me

This is a story I came up with, while researching for my thesis.

Benjamin is a young dominic monk. He’s an artist and paints the walls of the new convents in New Spain. However, his sight is failing and has to take a pupil to teach him the ropes. His new pupil is a tlacuilo, an indian boy with an impressive talent. This is how a new artistic style is born, as well as an everlasting friendship.
