Last Saturday I had the honor to participate with three of my pieces in the Art For Autism Fundraiser at El Fogon, All proceeds will go to Autism Speaks and Parents Of Autistic Children, two great organizations.
Here you see some of the people who came to support, the group of artist that donated their pieces, and on the right, the little lady that got my artwork during the fundraiser and her with the artwork already hanged up in her room.
It was an amazing experience for all of us!
Thanks Ed Alvarez for the pictures!

This week I finished this three commissioned logos for Restoration Community Church
They wanted me to hand draw the logos and go with my instinct with just a few instructions. It worked perfectly and I think they all came out great.
This new church is ready to rock everything they are trying to accomplish. I'm glad to have been part of their start. It has been an amazing experience. Thanks.
