A old Illustration done in January of 2008

I´m Not mexican, but Emiliano Zapata is one of the most important figures of the hispanic history.

Emiliano Zapata Salazar (August 8, 1879 – April 10, 1919) was a leading figure in the Mexican Revolution, which broke out in 1910, and which was initially directed against the president Porfirio Díaz. He formed and commanded an important revolutionary force, the Liberation Army of the South, during the Mexican Revolution.

In 1910, Zapata quickly took an important role, becoming the general of an army that formed in Morelos – the Ejército Libertador del Sur (Liberation Army of the South).

Zapata joined Madero’s campaign against President Diaz. With the support of Pancho Villa, Pascual Orozco, Emiliano Zapata, and rebellious peasants, Madero overthrew Díaz in May 1911 in the battle at Ciudad Juárez.

Zapata was partly influenced by an anarchist from Oaxaca named Ricardo Flores Magón. The influence of Flores Magón on Zapata can be seen in the Zapatistas' Plan de Ayala, but even more noticeably in their slogan (this slogan was never used by Zapata) "Tierra y libertad" or "land and liberty", the title and maxim of Flores Magón's most famous work.

On April 10, 1919, Guajardo invited Zapata to a meeting, intimating that he intended to defect to the revolutionaries. However, when Zapata arrived at the Hacienda de San Juan, in Chinameca, Ayala municipality, Guajardo's men riddled him with bullets.

Modern activists in Mexico frequently make reference to Zapata in their campaigns, his image is commonly seen on banners and many chants invoke his name: Si Zapata viviera con nosotros andaría, "If Zapata lived, he would walk with us." Zapata vive, la lucha sigue, "Zapata lives; the struggle continues."

In the folklore of the people of Morelos, there is a widespread belief that Zapata did not die. The corpse purported to be his was that of a friend posing as Zapata,because there was something on Zapata's chest that the dead body didn't have and that Zapata himself fled to some obscure rural locale.

Goliath (Hebrew: גָּלְיָת, Standard Golyat Tiberian Golyāṯ ; Arabic: جالوت , Jalut (Muslim term), جليات Julyat (Christian term)), known also as Goliath of Gath (one of five city states of the Philistines), is the Philistine warrior, famous for his battle with the young David, the future king of Israel, described in the Hebrew Bible/Christian Old Testament and, more briefly, in the Quran.

There are significant differences between the earliest manuscripts of the story, dating from the last few centuries before Christ, and those of later centuries, with Goliath's height increasing from an original six and a half feet (200cm) to nine and a half feet (290cm), and David changing from a young man to a boy. The story may have originated in oral traditions about David – the name "Goliath" appears to be an authentic 10th century Philistine one – but Goliath's famous battle may originally have been with the obscure Elhanan, rather than with the great king of Jewish folklore, and the version preserved in the Book of Samuel shows clear parallels with Greek literature.

Post-Classical Jewish traditions stressed Goliath's status as the representative of paganism, in contrast to David, the champion of the God of Israel; Christian tradition gave him a distinctively Christian twist, seeing in the battle with David the Church's battle with Satan.

Moses (Egyptian, Latin: Moyses, Hebrew: מֹשֶׁה, Standard Moshe Tiberian Mōšeh; Greek: Mωϋσῆς in both the Septuagint and the New Testament; Arabic: موسىٰ, Mūsa; Ge'ez: ሙሴ, Musse) is a Biblical Hebrew religious leader, lawgiver, and prophet, to whom the authorship of the Torah is traditionally attributed. Also called Moshe Rabbeinu in Hebrew (Hebrew: מֹשֶׁה רַבֵּנוּ, Lit. "Moses our Teacher"), he is the most important prophet in Judaism, and also an important prophet of Christianity, Islam, the Bahá'í Faith, Rastafari, Chrislam and many other faiths. According to the book of Exodus, Moses was born in a time when war threatened and the large increase in the number of his people concerned the Pharaoh who was worried that they might help Egypt's enemies. His Hebrew mother, Jochebed, hid him when the Pharaoh ordered all newborn Hebrew boys to be killed, and he ended up being adopted into the Egyptian royal family. After killing an Egyptian slave-master, Moses fled across the Red Sea to Midian where he tended the flocks of Jethro, a priest of Midian on the slopes of Mt. Horeb. After the Ten Plagues were unleashed on Egypt, Moses led the Hebrew slaves out of Egypt, across the Red Sea, where they based themselves at Horeb and compassed the borders of Edom. It was at this time, that according to the Bible, Moses received the Ten Commandments. Despite living to 120, Moses died before reaching the Land of Israel.

A old draw again, I done this one arround july of the last year. the design is very referenced to Cecil B. DeMille´s movie, "The Ten Commandments".

Oh this I remember this, thi artwork took me at least about a month to do with somewhat perfection, but I love the colors and the artwork itself.

In the story:
Prince Chaos (Kyle) was a netural like person, never took any sides of good and evil, only choose something else that's was mostly something in the middle and whatever fit him the best. The Demonic wings represent the control of his inner most violent instinct that Princess Chaos (Eden) chose to mess with and most of all release the monster in him. The Angelic wings represent that he was a good manner calm person and did whatever he could to make those happy and never thought of killing people, but the villagers that kidnapp him looked at the wings the other way as a Fallen Angel, black cold wings, they trust him but not enough to give full pledge.

"Schwarzer Geisht" means Black Ghost in German....lol
Another demon in Argone, oh goodie, who is more much like a human just has a "obsession with all the dead." There were earlier concepts of her but I have to find them first.

Anway the Backstory of her...In a comic we are working part of Argone Origins, she was a teen maybe around 13 or 14 who was schizophernic of seeing ghost Nazis around her, soon her mental mind soon became a physical threat to people and started to massacre them bit by bit by the ages to 16 to 19, because of their sexual behavior, she thought the world would be better off those "sex behaving whores", Her cases of killing were cold so in case she was an unknown serial killer. She wanted to kill the older teens in a faster paste that somwhere is less crowded so she made her father to build a house for her, for he was an architecture, few weeks after making the house he had an affair with another woman while Charlene's mother was dying. Charlene took a knife and stabbed the "whore" 5 times on the back and ripped her breast apart in front of her father, he ran off to call the police, but the area they built the house was on a mountain that wolf population was high. Which in time he did not make it to the locals below. A group of friends, about 7 people, ditched school and decided to go camping. After spending 2 days in the house, Charlene pretended she was hurt and sick and was desperatly to get away from the wolves, although she somehow the wolves accepted her in their pack. her aptempt to kill on the girls Scarlett was a failure, for which Scarlett drowned her when Charlene was trying to take a bath. Scarlett called the cops and made a lie Charlene wanted to kill her which in that moment it made the local police very suspicious about Charlene's father died within the area and only Charlene survived but disappeared. While the local police were coming, Scarlett put on one of Charlene's favorite Black and White dress, Charlene was angered of her wearing it and that everyone said it looked perfect on her instead of Charlene. The locals came and Charlene ran through and underground tunnel and ran to into the blizzard. Charlene was emotionally angered and was hiding into a cave, until her schizophernic took in and saw the ghosts again, they mention about selling her soul to he devil, which later she met Argone. Charlene sold her soul to Argone and became an undead ghost. Charlene went back into the house and still Scarlett was wearing the dress talking to the cops. After they left Scarlett toke off the dress and Charlene took it back and left the house again to the cave. Now that she is an undead her schizophernic finally was cured and became a connection to the dead. Charlene called th wolves by entering their mind and speak, the worst part she was able to rise the dead. The only people that died in the mountains were Nazis that tried to hide from the Americans but crash landed in America. She now had an army. The first was to get rid of Scarlett and her friends. Scarlett's friend, Michelle, found her body in a bloodpath with on organ missing which was ripped open with a cutting knife, they called the cops again. They didn't find any thing, but one police stayed who was Carl, young 19 year old, made out with Michelle. Charlene's head officer who she named Joepsh Goredt, killed Carl by slicing his throat open and took Michelle and continuely raped Michelle. Charlene came back for a special person who was name Andrew. She wanted him to die last and see everyone else die. Matthew splited open and was torn apart by the wolves. While Derick's limps were tearing apart, he was the one to call her the Black Ghost known as Schwarzer Geist. Brettenita forze to death as she was dunked into the water. Luren scalp was torn off. Marques's head been twised in many ways and then fell off. WHile they were dying Andrew dorve off home in Covina, Schwarzer Geist called the Psyhic Vamps. to follow him back home. In bed he die, now Shcwarzer continues killing teens...

Based (just based) in the great style of a great artsist... I had his link here before, but for some reason he doesn´t like any type of linked works... so I respect his desicion....

Troops during the Mexican Revolution (1910-1923 (1924)), the bloodiest war on the western hemisphere, with more of two millions of deaths or missings.

- Federal Army Officer; formed under the European model, primary from France and Germany, experts on war theory and armament improvement, however they prove to be unable to fight against the guerrillas and suffer the total lack of the population cooperation or sympathy, all because they fought to preserve the goverment of Huerta, the general responsable of the death of Madero, a charismatic leader of the bourgeois revolution and president of Mexico, but also an incopetent ruler. Ironically, despise being a "reactionary" Huerta signed the firsts laws of federal protection for workers, rights to strike and federal programs for pensions.

- North Division rifle man; soldiers under the official command of Pancho Villa, usually well equipped and good fighters most of their forces were composed by poor ranchers and old Madero radical partners, and were supported by several foreing or industrial money. The command of this forced was a mix of former bandits (who have the benefict of the land knowledge) and several militars trained during the "porfirian years". They fought for a social improvement in salaries and the end of the elite priviledges, having in their troops radical marxists leaders such as General Felipe Angeles. During the "punitive expedition" they were chased by the american army without any results.

- South guerilla man; contrary to the romantically perception, the south was leaded and funded by rich ownlanders in a search to reach a more industrial and liberal farms, and not to approach an equitable land repartition. The south was in a different situation than the north and the southern forces were almost always in a lack of the necessary equipment to an eficient war against the federal forces, however the support of the social masses and the "nothing to lose" concept made them powerful fighters and a constant pain in the ass for almost all the ejecutive leaders until the end of the revolution.

- Constitutional Army private; real war dogs, after the uprising of the northern states during the Huerta presidence, a millitary corp was formed only with highly experienced soldiers, adquiring the title of "constitutional" army after the creation of the 1917 political constitution of the UME (United Mexican States). With lesser numbers of men than the other forces, the "constitucionalistas" (also called "Carranzistas" and after "Obregonistas") overcomes all of them in equippement, tactics, strategy and experience, being the primary force in the defeat of the federal army, and then in the total supression of the north and south divisions. Usually very well commanded, this army also archieve the unconditional withdrawal of all the American forces on Mexican territory, the death of all the other revolutionary leaders and the end of the violent stage of the mexican revolution (open the way to the political war)

I can just imagine to our ancestors listening all the “modern word´s conscience” crap… seeing all the decadence and the imbecility… what they would thing of us as society?; are these people stupid?...

So there it is, just a funny image of that hypothetical situation, in one side the old good normal people, persons that only live with the old good common sense and discipline, the “provider man”, the “house wife”, the old man… and child. In the other side all the new conscience talking its crap, and all in a period in which this is obviously crap.


The “delusion of modernity”, the “fallacy of sophistication”, the farce of be in a new and better stage of human social evolution is the real illusion of the modern society. Thousands of millions of new idiots, believing that their imbecility is the apex point of history, believing that all their speeches of “freedom” and decadence are the correct way in human evolution.

Humans (Homo sapiens to the friends) have existed since more or less 250,000 years ago, with a development based in the stability, the fortitude and discipline in order to survive, to create a strong structure and to reduce the menaces of nature. A constant and natural behavior of 50,000 years that is now insulted by just 50 years of “moralistic decadence” (in terms that the new conscience is justified with moral terms; the “good” and the “bad”). Even the 6,000 years of history are a consequence of that prehistoric development.

The modern notion is that the last generation is the best of all, technologically, morally, philosophically, and even “spiritually”… but that is the “delusion” created by the ignorance and the idiotic rebellious behavior of a generation who has received everything without none cost or effort.

Technological improvement?... the great advance in the human history was the “Great Leap Forward” in the Paleolithic period, the creation of the abstract thought, the origin of the art, the religion as the predecessor of the philosophy and the creation of a complex political mind. But in terms in technology the greatest point of human history, the mayor advances of machinery and technical progress were the years between 1820 and 1915… with the consolidation of the industrial revolution; the train, the car, the plane, the movies, the radio, the world communications…. We are not in the greatest stage of technological improvement; we are just a decrease point of the achievements of those years… You can live without internet for an entire life, but try to live without a toilet for a week… Moral development?... in what sense?... the only speech of that the modern world uses to justify everything is the “desire”, the same level in which the animals live… 200,000 years of evolution, a race to separate us from the animals, just to collapse at their side. Moral is the application of the ethical discussions, the reflection of its resolutions; not the justification of the lack of ethics. “good” and “bad” most be considered in base result, causes and effects, not just in modern relativistic perceptions… and this is when the last generation rise its imbecility in the prosaic rejection its presents to the previous generations… the old people is shown as primitive and their values are put in the scheme of archaic and idiotic thoughts….
Women want to be like men, and men are just acting like pussies, all in the name of the “liberal progress”, the society has no values, and the moralistic laziness is the base of the modern democracies, and then the same society that generates those vices makes questions about the reasons of the decadence…

You could argue in favor to your own freedom, but your descendants are going to judge you in base your decadence, the same pattern of chaos that you are creating and defending is going to be rejected by the “Tragic man”… our sons and grandsons.

I´m going to deny the comments options (at least for a while)… why? Because this image must serve in a propagandistic sense, a one-sided way of information and I don´t want to read crap as “good work” or “you are an ignorant”…
Besides, I only care the comments of few people; AlexS, Bressan, Zima, Cyber, Lam, Camil, Dante, Oasis, Dislexia, Valg, DIO, Earlgray, chaos-dark… and I´m sure these persons understand my decision...

Heroes, defenders, pillars of my fatherland...

- Agustín Cosme Damián de Iturbide y Arámburu; Agustín I of México, the first, the only and the real emperor of Mexico, a proud creole and the realist leader who seeing the idiotic fight between brothers, decided to consolidate the independence and create a new nation under the idea of a constitutional monarchy.

- José de la Cruz Porfirio Díaz Mori; Hero of Mexico in the war against France, and after, one of the greatest leaders of the world in his time, know (even for the americans) as "The greatest man of the continent", the person who consolidated the reform and the positivism in a real and stable state, transforming an empty wasteland in the most powerful nation of the Americas.

- Francisco Plutarco Elías "Calles" Campuzano; Teacher, militar and politician and almost an historical accident. Cold, methodic and traitor, he was the man who ended the violent stage of the mexican revolution, the man who stablished and institutionalized the most stable regime in all the XX century starting an economical and industrial growth (only overcome by the Soviet standarts).

From independence to glory, from glory to order, from order to progress. Because patriotism and nationalism are the banners of the greatest men.

Comisión para Neftali Vargas.
Me platicaba que deseaba hacerse un tatuaje (como ilustración) de un guerrero prehispánico y luego de algunas conversaciones se decidió por un Caballero Jaguar.
Aunque he escuchado que hay personas que han querido o se han hecho tatuajes a raíz de mis dibujos, no he tenido el gusto u honor de verlos. A ver si ahora se me hace ver uno.



En los tiempos del Imperio Azteca ellos eran una de las mejores sociedades guerreras fácilmente reconocibles por su indumentaria con la piel de jaguar del dios Tezcatlipoca, otorgador de la victoria.
La jerarquía militar venía marcada por el linaje y también por el valor en combate, que se demostraba por el número de enemigos muertos o capturados.
El cuartel de los guerreros águila y los guerreros jaguar fue el Quauhcalli "la casa de las águilas", recinto ceremonial al lado del Templo Mayor (La estructura mas alta de Tenochtitlan).
Como grupo de élite de las fuerzas armadas, algunos códices indican que entraban en un profundo estado de meditación y podían durar en un sitio de cuclillas y sin moverse, sin comer ni beber durante al menos dos semanas (¡¿sería posible?!), simplemente esperando el momento oportuno para atacar y matar a su enemigo.
Se cree que los guerreros águila y los guerreros jaguar mataron a casi el 80% de las bajas españolas, antes durante y después de la conquista.

Commission to Neftali Vargas
He wants a prehispanic tattoo and after some choices he accorded on a Jaguar Knight Warrior design. Curiously I heard about people who wants or already made tattoos using my drawings but honestly I never saw one before, hope this time I can finally see one.



On the lost ages of the Aztec Empire the Jaguar Knights were easily recognize of because the feral outfit using the skin of the Ocelot god Tezcatlipoca to bring them victory. The military position usually comes with linage & courage on the battlefield and number of taken enemies.
The headquarters of the Eagle & jaguar warriors were at side of the Great Templo Mayor, the most sacred and highest temple of Tenochtitlan, the Aztec city.
As a combat forces some antique codes says they did meditate even for many days without food or water just waiting the opportunity to strike their enemies.
It´s supposed those elite warriors destroyed almost 80% of Spaniard forces from the killed conquers before the destruction of the Aztec Empire.

¡¡ SANTO, SANTO, SANTO!!

Imagen para la exposición atómica colectiva "El Santo de mi Devoción" [link] conmemorando 25 años del fallecimiento de EL SANTO, el enmascarado de plata.


Hacía poco le comentaba a una amiga de Puerto Rico que al menos en México los luchadores son vistos como una especie de héroes a ojos de los niños, imagina entonces cuando sabes que el más grande de todos los clásicos a peleado contra Drácula, el Hombre-lobo (el malo, claro, je, je), Frankestein, mujeres vampiro, zombis, momias, chicas lobas y hasta marcianos. (Wooow!!!) Si a esto le agregamos que podías verlo directamente en las arenas muchos lo consideramos una Leyenda viviente y el mejor superhéroe de ficción.
Tuvo varios campeonatos, ganó varias máscaras, salieron cómics y filmó unas 60 películas entre los años 50´s a los 80´s.

Tal vez no era tan musculoso como se ve en mi imagen, pero cuando era niño así lo veía y admiraba.

¡¡ SANTO, SANTO, SANTO!!

Image for the atomic collective exposition "El Santo de mi Devocion" [link] about the 25th death anniversary of EL SANTO (The Saint) maybe the most loved and greatest fictional Mexican hero.

He was a real professional wrestler from the golden age of the Mexican lucha libre, and also the most famous only equalled by his friend & eternal antagonist Blue Demon.
He won several championships, masks and featured about 60 movies from the 50´s – 80´s years fighting against the classic monsters like Count Dracula, Wolfman, Frankestein, Vampire women, zombies, female werewolves, mummies and even martians!! Probably in my country a similar famous like Batman featured by Adam West.
On my image he fights the Werewolf (a Bad one of course, he, he..), a vampire and a mummy.

Cuenta la leyenda que en la infancia de los tiempos, cuando llegaron los Aztecas al Valle del Anáhuac y las montañas aun no tomaban su forma eterna, nació en la gran ciudad de Tenochtitlán una hermosa princesa llamada Mixtli, hija única de Tizoc "Tlatoani" (Emperador / Gran Señor) de los Mexicas.
Mixtli era asediada por innumerables nobles y entre ellos Axooxco, hombre cruel y sanguinario, el cual reclamaba la mano de Mixtli, pero el corazón de la bella doncella pertenecía a un joven guerrero llamado Popoca que había salido a combatir para conquistar el mayor titulo de la élite guerrera azteca: el Caballero Águila y así disputar la mano de Mixtli a Axooxco.
Pero los días y meses pasaron sin tener noticias y Mixtli murió de tristeza pensando que su amado había caído en el campo de batalla sin imaginar que en ésos momentos Popoca regresaba triunfante. Al ver a su amada muerta, Popoca tomo el yerto cuerpo entre sus brazos y se dirigió a la montaña donde hizo una fogata y permaneció hasta su último momento agachado a sus pies pensando que quizá la nieve la despertaría de su eterno sueño y así poder unirse en vida con ella.

Pero la historia no termina aquí…
Incluso si sus cuerpos ya no están aún puedes verlos hoy, si algún día visitas las ciudades de México ó Puebla mira en el horizonte y verás dos majestuosos volcanes: el "IZTACCIHUATL" (Mujer Dormida), y el "POPOCATEPETL" (Montaña que Humea) que se yerguen dominantes sobre el valle.
Varios siglos han pasado y ambos amantes continúan juntos desde entonces por siempre.
:work:

Iztaccíhuatl, fue hace ya cientos de años,
La princesa más semejante a una flor,
Que de la tribu de los viejos caciques
Del guerrero más gentil se enamoró.

Duerme en paz, bella Iztaccíhuatl;
Nunca los tiempos borraran los perfiles
De tu casta expresión.

Vela en paz, Popocatepetl;
Nunca los huracanes apagaran
La antorcha eterna de su amor.

POSTER Available - send me a note if you´re interested.

Let me tell you a tale from my Country:
The legend tells so long time ago, when the Aztecs arrived to the Anahuac valley and mountains don’t have a defined form, there was born in the Great City Tenochtitlán a beautiful princess named Mixtli, only daughter of Tizoc, the "Tlatoani" (Emperor / Great Lord) of the Mexicas. Many men wanted to married her and like them there was Axooxco, a bloody cruel lord who claims her; but the love of the princess belongs to a young poor warrior named Popoca.
To gain the right to dispute the hand of the princess against Axooxco, Popoca goes on war campaign to win the highest title for an Aztec warrior: the "Eagle knight", this was a distinguished military class reserved only to the most noble and brave warriors of the empire.
But many days and months pass without news and Mixtli died of sadness thinking her true love died on the battlefield, without the knowledge Popoca finally returned victorious.
He took the body of her princess and goes to the mountain thinking she was only sleeping and maybe the snow could awakes her; he made a bonfire and he stayed aside on her feet waiting the moment to be rejoined again and this time forever. An eternal wait…

But the story no ends here…
Even if their bodies are gone, today you can still see them, if someday you visit the cities of México and Puebla State, watch the horizon and you can see two beautiful volcanoes one near each the other: The "IZTACCIHUATL" (sleeping woman) and the "POPOCATEPETL" (Smoking Mountain).
Many centuries have past since then and the lovers stay there together… and forever.
:work:


Take peacefully your sleep sweet Iztaccíhuatl,
Never will be erased your beautiful expression,

Take peacefully your stay aside her Popocatepetl,
Never will be forget the eternal fire of your love.
