In life, the one thing I have always enjoyed and always knew I wanted to do is to draw. The first thing I remember drawing is Fred Flintstone's face. I copied it by looking at a trading card I had back in Chile. Since then, I have always been in love with drawing, I just didn't know it then.
Time went on and I kept on drawing, on and off but never stopping. My family, although supportive, weren't believers of my passion, they would instead encourage me to find something else to do with my life. Something other than art. I tried to look into other fields but even with intriguing beginnings, numerous majors just failed to hold my attention for too long. So I withdrew.
With a full time job I was only able to draw at night and on some weekends but in eight months time, I had nine surreal illustrations in black & white, 19"x24". Micron Pens and Acrylic ink. With the illustrations framed, I had a gallery at the Musto Center in Union City, NJ on May 15-17, 2014. I had a good turnout and took some of the feedback and decided to switch to colors. I had never done it before, at least not artistically and specially not with markers but my brother had gifted me a set of Copic Markers and I just felt a sense of duty to put them to use. This past May 21, I was part of RAW: Sensory in NYC. Family and friends showed up and I got to meet tons of people and made some new friends.
Now I'm working on new projects and for the next show soon, somewhere. =)
