Here are some of the highlights from my 2018 SDCC experience. I did a couple portfolios this year. I saw the awesome Joe Jusko, he’s the reason I decided to pick up a brush and start painting. His new art book “Joe Jusko’s Marvel Masterpieces” was on sale and I was able have it signed. I visited my art friends booths, had a look at the many exhibitors, took pictures of cosplayers and hangout with family and friends while I was there. I took way to many pictures to share them all so here are some of my favorites.
I’ll be at the EAST LA C.A.P.E! this Saturday May 12th 2018 at the El Gallo Plaza • 4545 East Cesar E Chavez Avenue • East Los Angeles, CA 90022.
Here is the finished Partyman 2.0 an exclusive art piece for my art gallery exhibit “The Unique Realm of Pepe Melan” which started yesterday with an opening reception at the Palmdale Playhouse. I throughly enjoyed talking about the process, technique and time it takes to create piece of my artwork. I am very honored, humbled and deeply appreciate everyone who took the time to attend the opening reception! Your support means the world to me, Thank you!!
The Art Gallery Exhibit runs from May 3 – July 8, 2018. For more information, please check here http://www.palmdaleplayhouse.com
Palmdale Book Festival & Artown Fusion at Legacy Commons in Palmdale was blast yesterday. It’s great local event that has different styles of art for everyone to enjoy. One of the best parts is being able to talk to about the techniques used to create art. Thanks to everyone who stopped to chat and have a look at my artwork.
