Born in San Antonio, Texas and raised in Monterrey México. Emmanuel Valtierra studied Graphic Design in the University of Nuevo Leon (UANL) and Photography in San Antonio College. After some time, he adopted the aztec codex style for some of his works bringing him attention from the public. Releasing first a series of pop culture images, playing cards, and finally the book "Codex Valtierra". The book had a Kickstarter campaign and won praise at the WorldCon 2018 in San Jose California.
The love Valtierra has for history has influenced him on all his projects. The goal is to keep teaching new generations about our past in a fun way in every media possible. In the future, Valtierra is planning to release more books, direct more videos, and work on more games for his public and followers.

OBSIDIAN & FEATHERS

During these times there's nothing better than staying home with the family. Nothing like a board game to keep everyone entertained at home. Obsidian and feathers will be a game like no other. 3-4 players will have an epic adventure on a round board in which they have to go under to collect bones and build a "tzompantli". Follow me on instagram to see the most recent images and news about it.
