More ilos and... well, one caricature

This is Cuban singer/composer Pablo Milanés.

An amazing voice.

He was a staunch supporter of  the Cuban Revolution, but lately, despite saying that he's still a leftist and a revolutionary man at heart (two things that don't sit well at all with Cuban hardliners exiled in Miami) he has criticized the Cuban government and his officials in interviews.

He was one of the few artists who in 2003 refused to sign a letter handed by the Cuban government seeking  approval among its well known intellectuals to carry  the death sentence of three young men that tried to kidnap a small boat to escape to the states.

He performed in a concert at the American Airlines Arena in downtown Miami amid protests of all kinds.

All made in Adobe Illustrator, like the other two ilos.
