Artist statement: "Trujillo's second large format artist book, ‘Trouble’ (2021) is a continuation of stories and images that bring the Chicano perspective of culture, family, and food to the table.

"Sketched from memory, the stories about youth grab on to singular moments when adolescent skill sets are just enough to skirt trouble. Set in 1970's Vallejo, California, Trujillo interweaves the culture of food with recipes and domestic lessons that form identity.

"Both of Trujillo's books ‘Funeral Food’ (2019) and ‘Trouble’ (2021). Both editions were printed by Impronta Casa Editora in Guadalajara, Mexico - a traditional printing workshop that specializes in intertype & fine art letterpress processes for small artistic publications."
