Update April 29, 2014: With Tim, Tony and Manu back in the playoffs, I thought it would be the perfect time to remind everyone about the Spurs veladora. If you do make some, please be sure to post a picture to the SA Flavor Facebook wall or send out a tweet with #SpursVeladora!
A few years back, I happened onto a blog of artist Jamie Stolarski and saw where he created a piece for the San Antonio Spurs that could be cut out and attached to a veladora, or candle that is used to hold vigil. The art shows a calavera in a Manu Ginobili jersey and asks for “protección.” I thought it was so cool, and immediately made my own veladora that I keep on my desk throughout the playoffs.
After posting the picture to Twitter and Facebook, I got a lot of questions on where folks could print out the image and make their own candle. I searched on google and realized that the original blog was shut down, but reached out to the artist to get permission to post the image. Jamie graciously allowed me to post the image so be sure to download it, make a veladora, and cheer on the Spurs!
Go Spurs Go!!!
