A few months ago, Ruben Urrea Moreno and Rock CYFI Martinez invited me to show some artwork with them. The date is slowly approaching! It’s been exciting working with these guys and planning everything out. Still lots of work to do, but the hard work will be worth it!
These are some small sketches I’ve spent time working on lately. I have not put much energy into large projects but things always seem to be progressing slowly.
I just painted this cow skull for the Holy Cow Skull show at Zoe Boutique on Saturday, April 26th from 6pm to 9pm. It was a fun exercise to paint on this uncommon object. For this piece, I found myself working on a recurring symbol in my work. A lock and key reminds me of the struggle to decipher life and its mysteries. We look for the key to unlocking happiness and satisfaction on a daily basis. It […]
Lately I have been asking myself why I continue to draw. I have slowed down on the amount of personal art work I do because of the time and effort my job requires. But for some reason I still like to take a few minutes a week to draw. The exercise of drawing by hand has become a bit of a habit. Although I don’t go through sketchbooks as quickly as I used to, I […]
There is always room for growth. Always something new to learn. As I move forward in life and in my artistic career I look forward to all the new things that await me in the future.
I like to study how the objects we value somehow become us. The things we try to acquire and choose to keep say something about each one of us. As much as I enjoy drawing things I like, I enjoy opening up to things around me. My friend Joe recently lent me a set of his clippers so I could draw them. I wouldn’t call this a portrait of him but the drawing does suit him.
Here’s a new drawing. I like working on these small pieces. The detail demands a lot of attention and it makes my mind sink into the work. I constantly remember my junior high art teacher, Mr. Randolph, who always told me, “Draw what you see, not what you think you see.”
Sometimes the process of creating pulls me toward a direction I don’t plan on going in. Some projects just somehow piece themselves together. Here’s the latest drawing.
I began focusing my efforts towards making art about 7 years ago. I began creating a body of work, mainly consisting of acrylic paintings. About two years ago, I felt it was time to move onto something greater. I was content with my former body of work. Then I faced a dilemma. I honestly didn’t know where to go with my creative work. I felt that I had matured and that I needed to move on to […]
If I’m not working to improve my work and my skills, I feel like I’m letting myself down. I don’t know if I can ever be content with who I am as an artist. I refuse to compare my self to my peers. I want to compare myself to my favorite artists and designers. I want to achieve more than those whom I admire. I want to be more than any one expects.
