I woke up to a cool proposal " Could you illustrate my tag? "
I took on the challenge and created a weird three eyed monster face in my iPad. I like how fast I can create just with my fingers on a screen. It's like finger paint for adults. No mess, no clean up, just finger paint! I've been thinking for a while if I should upgrade my iPad or if I should get a Wacom instead... hard decisions.
Have a great Labor Day everyone 🙋🏻
This year I had the privilege and luck to be part of Argonaut Resins boot at NY Comic Con. I painted live several pieces and some sold already, but if you missed it you can still get some at his website see them below!!
These are the pieces I customized this year for Argonaut Resins. Mariposa and Dragonfly are already at the NYC Comic-Con and I will join on Sunday painting live some more resin toys.
I can't wait to be there again! It's such a great atmosphere, the people, the costumes, art everywhere... It is a pretty cool experience. If you are going to be there on Sunday, come visit us at booth 404 at The Block. You won't be disappointed :)
This is the latest mural I've done, to celebrate the The Bronx Music Heritage Center will be opening a new building soon. They are on a mission to beautify the Melrose area where the new building is going to be placed. For that mission, WHEDco has partnered with BxArts Factory. We will be bringing artists to work with the community and make the area happier.
I spent a couple of days doing what I do best, creating a colorful piece of art that everyone can enjoy. Visit this mural and other beautiful murals at 163rd St and Melrose Ave, in The Bronx, New York. I had the pleasure of working with Ralph Serrano and KayLove.
I want to thank Vanezza and Allison who came out to spray some paint and they were a great help!!
With my Eye-Flowers (and sometimes Skull-Flowers) I want to send a message to the viewers, to make them reflect in what we are doing to Mother Nature. I've always been in the green side, and some of the things we are doing to this wold are already coming back to us. We can't keep trashing the oceans and burning our trees to plant transgenic soy beans. Just think about it.
This has been a very busy summer; one of the things I have done is organizing a live painting event at Boogie on the Boulevard with BxArts Factory and HeavenBound7 Sk8 Shop. Henry, the owner of the store, repurposed about 20 old skate decks sanded them and prep them to be painted. Many artists came out that day to encourage the community to be healthy and to show how every artist has a process and creativity is everywhere!
Thanks to Alex Fernandez, Alexis Mendoza, Elizabeth Ortiz, Giannina Gutierrez, Karen Pedrosa, Laura Alvarez, Leo Mojica, Louis Nieves, Natalia Zamparini, Shak Castillo, Steven McKenzie, Vanezza Cruz, Xavier Figueroa, and Yazmeen Collazo for your artistry and commitment! Because you all did an awesome job.
I will be part of this Art fundraiser for autism awareness. next April 19th at El Fogon, in the Bronx. From 2 to 7pm. Help us help others
Last weekend and this coming weekend I'm part of the crew working at the Spooky nights of the New York Botanical Garden. My friend Lucrecia Novoa asked me if I wanted to wear one of her creations. How would I resist??? I think she is a magnificent artist that lives and breathes art. Her pieces are full of life, mystery and creativity. It's a pleasure to be sharing my art and my time with four beautiful women in a wonderful place like the Botanical Garden.
