I worked up this new Hello My Name Is wood panel for an upcoming show at the WOSA Lab this Friday. Got inspired to take it back to the Nintendo days with this Super Mario Bros. themed piece. Check it out! And if you are in the Central Jersey area tomorrow, come by the WOSA Lab (@wosalab), swing by. You can check out their flyer here.
As a Cuban American who is very proud of his roots, it is an exciting moment for our people. Although the death of Fidel Castro will not bring any big changes for the Cuban people, it is the end of his infamous legacy. One that oppressed and killed anyone that dared to even think about getting in his way of ahead of his agenda. We have a long way to go before the island is liberated, but we are one step closer. ¡Que viva Cuba libre!
Damn, another childhood staple taken away this year. I just watched Star Wars Rogue One and it ends with a short cameo by Princess Leia. As I am walking out of the theater I hear of the passing of Carrie Fisher. Sad moment. In any case, I had to do a little drawing to honor a character (and the actress that brought her to life) that was such a big part of my youth. Rest in peace.
I was a contestant in El Jimador’s Art Brawl, an event sponsored by El Jimador tequila where six artists battle it out for prizes. I was fortunate enough to win 2nd place behind Dinkc from Brooklyn. Had a great time hanging with old friends and making some new ones. Big shout out to all the other artists and everyone who showed up and threw a few votes my way. Here are a few pics from the event. But before I do, just a few more shout outs!
