Artist | Hobbyist | Varied

I started to draw when I was really young and my first formal drawing training was given to me by my cousin Angel. He was an artist in the same caliber as the late John Buccema, he interview with Marvel Comics back in the 70's but it was really hard on those days to get in the business. Well like all of us I wanted to pursue a career as an artist but life had other plans for me and so in order to help my familiy back home in P.R. I joined the US Army and stay until retirement. I did drew here and there while in service but it was only when bored or basically at times when I had a bit of free time. Then I had times when I did not drew at all for years, which has hurt my abilities and styling, and everytime I start again is like learning all over again. I started to draw again here and there plus my oldest son also draws and he encourages me to continue to draw and finally I joined DA about 4 years ago. Now I'm trying to maintain some sort of consistancy but it's always challange to draw consistantly. Anyway that is it about me.

Personal Quote: Do what make you feel good!
Well the new year is here, I hope everyone of you out there had a great one with your families and friends wherever you are in this world of ours!  Also hope your holidays were awesome and you had some great times as well! 

Anyway it's been quiet thus far, although I'm really happy and sad at the same time, the reason is that the owner of the comic book shop here where I live retired for good.  He opened the shop when he was very young back in 1984 and for 32 years he worked to make it a really cool place to go.  Dan (his name) was already an avid comic collector from very young, he decided that he wanted to open a shop to continue his passion and provide to others who were just as passionate has he was.

I guess after a so long, he had other things that he wanted to do so finally he sold the shop to another really cool guy who is also another passionate comic book fan/collector.  The new owner worked for Dan for a while but had to do other things, and when the opportunity came to own the shop he took it with another partner.  John (new owner) is now getting things rearranged and he asked my son and me to come up with some designs for his new logo. He got me to get back to the "drawing board" per say!

Both Dan and John are good friends of ours, and so doing something for the shop is cool! 

So we when ahead and started to work from a sketch he gave us,  my son worked on the logo vectors and I worked on the new superhero mascot.  Well we send him our work and he is checking it out to see what he likes best.

In the meanwhile if any of you are near Frederick Maryland, check out Brianstorm Comics in downtown. They have gaming, comics, old comics and good conversation which is the one thing you can count on!  They know comics and can talk the talk, not like others that just sell comics and that is it. They are aware of the story lines, also in gaming they have a resident gaming expert as well! So stop by and check them out!
