sometimes working in a large, detailed piece like the Tree of Life becomes a little overwhelming. your eyes get sort of tired from continuously looking at the same stuff and end up needing a little refreshment. The Puppeteer, work in progress. mixed media on illustration board. + I was invited to collaborate with 3 illustrations for Liquid Dreams, a project by California poet Ricardo Blancas. along with Blanca’s beautiful poems, the book will bring color illustrations from different artists, ranging from pencil to oils works. all the earnings from the […]

I have to learn how to deal with it though; it has more features than my deceived one.
