Interests and Personality

BiographyI am a mostly self-taught artist / illustrator born and raised in New York's East Harlem / El Barrio. I love to explore just about every genre, medium, and style there is, but my main inspiration comes from creating images drawn from Latin American history & culture. I also enjoy creating images from World Mythology & Classical Civilizations.
