Here’s is a birthday commission I recently finished up. It was fun doing something a little different and yet the same. One of my favorite things when creating art is helping clients to celebrate their life through art.
I had 3 orders of custom shoes for Christmas presents this year. They consisted of Star Wars, Pittsburgh Steelers and Soccer. The custom artwork is painted on Converse All-Stars. It’s fantastic to be part of the process of making the holidays specials with custom apparel.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all my friends and family!
May your holidays be filled with the magic & wonder of Atlantis!!!
Been meaning to share this finished sketch cover but was busy finishing up Christmas commissions. So here it is, the Luke Skywalker Sketch Cover that I finished up just in time from the release of The Last Jedi. I’ve been looking forward to this movie for the last 2 years. The cover was rendered with Liquitex paint and Free•Style brushes.
This year one of my friends nominated me for the Black and White Photo Challenge. The challenge rules were; Black and White pictures from your own life without people, pets, or explanation for 7 days. If was fun to be creative through photography. The 7th day, I had to add a little color since it was a Tribute to Prince. Here the photos I took for the challenge. I hope you enjoy them.
Started the paint stage of this Luke Skywalker Sketch Cover. Here is the result of the using Liquitex free•style splatter brush and adding the glow to the star field with dry brush blending.

This is my last comic show of the year and it was a great way to finish off the 2017 season. The Latino Comics Expo at the MOLAA was busy both days. The crowd was very enthusiastic from open to closing. I enjoyed talking to people about my creative process. It was a great way to premier my anthology comic magazine Unique Realm Illustrated Issue #1 at this show. It was good catching up with my fellow artist on their life and projects. Thanks to all that stopped by my table to chat and have a look at my artwork! A HUGE THANKS! to Ricardo Padilla and Javier Hernandez for putting together this Fantastic Event!!!
