Styx at 1 Million Cups

Alana Rae Garcia of Al Does Art pitched her new comic book series “The Styx” at 1 Million Cups here in Albuquerque. I had the honor of working with Alana as she produced the first issue of this inspired project. “The Styx” tackles the subject of death in a very human way with fantastic heroes and villains in a fantastic dreamscape. It’s reminiscent of  “What Dreams May Come” meets “Alice in Wonderland”. Follow Al Does Art on Facebook to order issues of “The Styx.”

 

2017 AHCC Gala Promotions

I had the tremendous opportunity to design the promotional material for the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce and their 2017 Gala. Every year, the event known as La Noche Encantada incorporates a different theme. This year, they featured Albuquerque in the theme “Rich in the Extraordinary”. I designed a couple comps but ultimately the über talented Craig Berry set the aesthetic tone with his invitation design. I then designed the tickets, program, outdoor boards, and print ads for both the gala and the after party.

Star Wars Day at Loma Colorado

For the second year in a row, I had the chance to participate in Star Wars Day at the Loma Colorado Library in Rio Rancho as a caricature artist! I had a great time drawing Star Wars themed caricatures alongside fellow caricature artists Alana Rae Garcia and Derek B. Lee. It was a great time at a great library that features a dog reading group, a manga club and a Lego club–check ’em out!

Merry Christmas 2016

As part of my annual Christmas card jobs, I collaborated with a junior art director–my 4 year old daughter. She drove the concept and even reworked my comps! (obviously they weren’t “on-concept” and so she corrected them). Here is the sketch that she worked on with me (marker, pencil and Photoshop) and the final vector art.
