The creative impulse of an artist, often comes from different sources, mine comes simply from the center of my life "My Son," my ideas and everything I do are dedicated to him, Elliot Santana, who as I continue living and pursuing my goals he is still small but extremely powerful in my life. He makes me better every day.
Someday, when he is grown and I have ambled on to the Fields Beyond, I hope he will be warmed by the memory of what I have accomplished due to how fiercely I loved him.
Bio of Abel Abe Toledo...
Creator bio: "Abe" is an illustrator and concept artist. Though he was born in Brooklyn, New York, his creativity was greatly influenced by growing up in Guayaquil, Ecuador and being introduced to the Japanese art forms known as Anime and Manga. He credits this amazing artistic exposure to the development of his style.
Abe began testing his skills in the Comic industry by submitting his portfolio to major comic companies in the United States, but was rejected by every editor because of his unusual Anime style. His big break came in July 1991 when an overseas comic company offered him the illustrative duties on a comic series. Though he enjoyed his work, he was not fully satisfied or fulfilled professionally. Thanks to Mr. Dennis O'neil, Abe saw the light in his life and his carrear took a different path, to the licensing and animation industry, after several months of doing research Abe finally met Larry Quarterraro and Mr.Quarterraro show Abe everything he knows about the animation industry. Little did he know then, but his path would lead him to a future completely outside the realm of comic-books and into an industry whos legends include the iconic Walt Disney. It was the collaboration with a fellow New Yorker that would consume his imagination for the next decade as a fantasy epic slowly sprang to life. His desire for fulfillment and satisfaction having grown by leaps and bounds during this time, in no small part due to the birth of his son Elliot. Now several years later, Abe's almost at the stage of having his idea be produce into a Cartoon Animated Series by one of the majors TV Networks in the business.
