Another encouraging success… worked on this piece for the Fresno Art Museum Trashique Show 2012 in April. To my surprise, i was a top favorite and just this weekend was informed that the Trashique event will be traveling to LA for the PennyLane Organization next year!!! EXCITEMENT!!!
This is an old piece… created her last year for the Rogue Festival 2012. The Festival took place in March, and though its been several months now, i still love her.

She was the piece that started it all for me, before i decided to pursue fine art as a second career, i focused mainly on animation, always putting fine art in the back burner.  Since Rogue, its been one success after another, encouraging me to continue working on new pieces and giving Art as much attention as my work in Animation.
Thank you Rogue!!!

Ok, for those of you who know me, I suck at Illustrator. Back in the day when Macromedia was a big hit, I was trained in Freehand, very straight forward, no fuzz no muzz when it came to vector illustration... LOVED IT!!! but one day, poof!!! Macromedia is bought by Adobe and that was it for Freehand, I dabbled here and there with Illustrator but never caught on to it. Then Flash came along and since it was also a vector program and the line tool was and is the Bomb!!! Illustrator took a back seat to my creative mishaps of the digital expression kind, but now... turns out that in order to become a Freelance artist, I really need to suck it up and learn me some Illustrator!!! So here I give you my first attempt to Illustrator. Look familiar? why yes... very Kristen Ulve I would say, her illustrations are absolutely amazing, simple yet so much detail goes into them, every single time I go to her site, I drool at the amazing talent that she is and find myself constantly and eagerly going to her page for inspiration, she makes it look oh so easy!!! I hope to follow in her greatness one day and become a master illustrator!!!

A stillness of Explosive Colors

Lets start by introducing some of my work.
I have spent the past few years contemplating on starting a blog. I start one and then delete it due to the lack of commitment I tend to demonstrate.
But today is a new page, new goals surface and I feel that this time around i will commit to keeping up with a blog.

My main reason for a blog, I guess like everybody, is to promote my work. Like every artist, i seek adulation for my talent and recognition amongst my piers.

Art is what inspires us, Art is what motivates us to venture into the world and confront its depressing realities with a colorful stance and a creative and liberated expression of ideals that are better put to canvas, walls, sketch books, websites and of course blogs, so we can not only be recognized for our talent, but for being that artist that brought a smile to that brooding individual surfing the web bored or on the bus annoyed at life.

To many Art is what defines us, but to the majority, Art is what moves us, and with that said, i introduce my latest piece... still in progress, but an inspiration of color and an allegory to the human form and its link to arts in a colorful explosion of brightness and creative chaos.

The simplicity of the body symbolizes man and woman's willing integration to Art and its explosion of themes and designs that forever bring to us a  sense of endless possibilities.
