Do you want to get a BIKE print? I will be donating a couple of those, for the Bronx Cranksgiving and they will be part of the prizes for the participants in the race.
Bronx Cranksgiving is a part bike ride, part scavenger hunt, food drive that helps feed those in need in The Bronx. Whether you choose to casually ride or race, you'll be stopping at different markets in various neighborhoods looking for specific food items that will get donated to Bronx Works and Youth Ministries for Peace & Justice. The requirements are get food and do it on a bike. All you need is a bike, a bag, a lock and some money to buy food.
Start : 2pm

Like every year for the past at least 4 years I make a drawing a day in the month of October. This year I am trying to keep a cohesive image and we are already in Day 9! You can follow my drawings on Instagram, Facebook or twitter :)
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 🙋🏻

#Inktober is back. This is the third year I commit to create a drawing a day during October to celebrate Halloween, my favorite holiday of the year. Plenty os skulls, owls, bats, cats and witches will be coming to my Instagram and FaceBook. You can follow me, that's be the best way to be posted!
It's not a secret I am fascinated by scary things, my way of coping with situations I worry about or I try to understand, is drawing about it. If you want to join me in this adventure, use the hashtag #DrawOct, I'll find them and repost your illustrations!
Have a terrific October!!
Two years ago I had the pleasure of being part of Women in Comics, the first exhibition of that kind in The Bronx. This August, we bring you the second part. Lots of artists, illustrations, comics and workshops will happen during this month at Poe Park Visitor Center.
I would like to invite everyone to the opening Saturday, August 1st, at 2640 Grand Concourse, Bronx, NY. From 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. we will be enjoying the company of many female illustrators, writers, producers, film makers, artists, and we will have a panel discussion about the situation of the women in comics.
I am a...
Graphic Designer, Illustrator, Educator, Community Activist... ARTIST!
