Thank you! I was glad DC need mexican stuff for I could use that way (and not actual mexico with catch & so), I could have done a lot like that... I don't know what's coming from his knee, this one comes from an incredible original unknown drawer, scientific call him "the fantastic painter"...

I used "Maya Iconography" from Benson & Griffin (Princeton press). There's only 1/2 page about him, I think all we know about is 1 or 2 vessel... I'll serach on internet today

Great character design in the top one, like a frog puppet with a scaled back, very cool.
