On Cinco de Mayo, Yuta Onoda's illustration for Jose Cuervo Tradicional was released to the public. Commissioned by Dieste, Yuta created a piece that pays homage to tequila, the beverage that reigns victorious every year on May 5th. The ad features an equestrian conquistadora, triumphantly raising her flag alongside tequila's hero, the agave plant. Yuta, who does a lot of work in the editorial and publishing markets, demonstrates his versatility with this appealing and edgy advertisement.
