so here is a drawing i did, i sent this and a few other drawing to the annual society of illustrator show for submission and guess what, i did not make it. i was really hoping i would make it and maybe this would be the start of my drawing career, i guess not. I been drawing a comic book for this writer and it was cool and maybe that will get pick up, but now i work as a guy to make sure that whatever graphic design send to print i fix it to the right size. this is a job that is ok but i feel a monkey can do it and the hour are very long and i start in the middle of the day and don't leave to very late at night. It is very hard to be someone who wants to design and draw without knowing someone or getting a lucky break. I am a self taught guy that never went to a famous art school or even college, i don't have friends that draw or even like to draw, i learned everything i know from books and the internet and the few times i met a artist and showed me something i studied it (martin witting is probably the only artist to ever show me something and i really honor that man for taking time to show me things.) i am 26 now and i at the point where do i stop trying to be a design/artist or be account or something else. i know if i got my shot that i would make it. i am a hard worker and i work well in team and by myself, i want to learn more to be better. i have a very simple dream, i want to wake up every morning and design and draw, have a living doing it and see it apart of something. well here i am just bitching and crying, poor me story, it can be worst. well bye 4 now
p.s. i would like to say happy birthday to my father. His birthday was the 20th. i miss my father a lot he died almost 2 and half year ago. Happy Birthday POPS!!!!!

So i been gone for a while so here are some drawings. i am working this summer for a camp teaching kids graphic design and web design at Pace university, so the job is killing me because the job is so far from where i live, so basically i wake up to go to work and take a long trip up there, so i draw while i am on the train. i been doing this for a while and i have to say i love it, so the only really drawing i get to do are these sketches. i remember when i started drawing i never wanted to draw people and that's all i draw, then i said i would never draw realistic and some of those sketches are pretty realistic looking but i still push there shapes around, i am happy the way things are going. well hope you like, tell me what you think. bye 4 now

No skateboards this time, just some old fashion drawing and a little comic strip. So my friend wanted to do a little comic strip, so he wrote it and I illustrated it. i went with a really simple line drawing just with a little texture in the background to make it pop. It is ok i think on my behalf but it was fun to do. I like riding on the subway and drawing people, i do this all the time when i am on the train, so here are a few drawing i did a few days ago. and last is a general type guy i came up with today just drawing around in the good old sketchbook, you know i can't call my sketch book old, i normal finish a sketchbook every two-three months now. well hope you like, tell me what you think. bye 4 now
Edit: I like the general character so i colored him for fun....

Here is all the boards i done so far, the first one is called "skull society" which i posted before the other two are new that i finish this weekend. one is called "dream killerz" and it just has all the type of people who can kill of dreams or goals in life, and the other one was just having fun trying to make it really graphic simple cartoon style. i wanted to use a lot of bright color. well hope you like, tell me what you think. bye 4 now

so things are looking up now, i sent a few people i now and respect the samples of my children's book and i got great reviews so i wrote a full story and i am illustrating it now and it is very fun, i am thinking when i finish the book i might self publish it i don't know yet. Also last weekend i went to the NY Comic con and showed off my work. the people i showed really like my work and thought that i should draw children book's. i also got to meet one of my fav. artist Jose lopez and he was great guy, he gave me great advice on how to give my work some more life and a character design tip. also the last drawing is a drawing i did for art jumble and the topic was Marlo Meekins (who is a great artist, she is just amazing check out her work) well thats it for now, hope you guys like what i did tell me what you think. bye 4 now
