Hey y'all! I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Nick. I've been making flags for about a year and a half now and I absolutely love doing it. Hope y'all would take a look at my flags!

Ladies and Gentlemen:
As you have noticed, my improvement of the arms of Guadalajara, Spain, is drawn in a cartoon style that does not resemble the polish of the original image. I have no skill at drawing with computers, so I have to make do with hand drawn images that resemble my main work, which is cartoons.
Back around 1985, when I was thirty, I sent a collection of my drawings to a heraldic artist who had designed the arms of several bishops of Florida. The man's reply was disheartening: he addressed me, a 30 y/o man, as if I were a child who had read his first elementary book of heraldry and who was now trying his clumsy worst to imitate the images of that book, and proceeded to dismiss my carefully drawn and coloured images as childish scrawls.
Naturally I was angry, but, wishing to keep my cool, I consulted a priest from my parish, who told me that this was basically a misunderstanding, and that I should write the man again.
I was not persuaded, but, out of consideration for the padre, I agreed to post again. I wrote the man as polite a letter as I could manage--although seasoned with a zesty pinch of testiness--, and I explained that I was a cartoonist by trade, but that nevertheless I enjoyed designing arms and flags so much that I had been creating armoury for more than ten years.
His reply came fast, and it was exactly what I had expected and feared. The man was even more PATRONIZING and CONDESCENDING than before, and pretty much dismissed my work as unworthy of being taken seriously as real heraldic art!
Furious, I tore both letters and flushed them down the toilet. Since then I have continued to design thousands of arms and flags--including devices for the 50 US States and the District of Columbia--because the worth of an armorial device does not lie with its artistic rendition, but rather with the CLEVERNESS OF THE DESIGN, and how APPROPRIATE is that design to represent the entity--person, family, civic body--that it symbolizes!!!
Which leads me to Guadalajara. The original design is very meaningful--the moment in 1085 when the Spanish took the city back from the Moors--, but it is too busy and cluttered, so the sensible and artistic thing to do is to clean it up and reduce it to its essentials: the commander of the Christian army marching to conquer the city. The image is childlike, yea, but it succeeds at being clean, clear, and easy to blazon.
I pray to take computer classes, once I can pay them; in the meanwhile I will have to continue drawing my devices by hand. So now I ask you: even though my images are in no way as polished as yours, would you say that they have merit? My horse of Guadalajara may resemble a character from MY LITTLE PONY, but there is one thing that cannot be denied: when I saw how untidy the original design is, it took me only a day, two drawings, and three blazons to come up with the perfect improvement for the city of Alvar Fan~ez de Minaya.
That armorial artist who thought so little of my work was all WET: heraldry is as natural and easy to me as breathing. If nobody else wants the position, I want to nominate myself for KING of ARMS of the NEW WORLD!

Does anybody know the arms that Pope Francis will bear?

Fellow heraldists:
The civic entities for which I have devised arms and flags already have symbols, but they are all very unimaginative and unimpressive. For ex, the seal of Hartford does show a hart, proof that its designer knew about canting arms, but as you can see if you consult the WIKI article for H, CT, that device is totally without charm or interest.
I want to present all my designs to the entities for which I have produced them, but more than likely language such as
tierced per pale argent, azure and argent, on each pale a hart's head affronte', the first and third azure, the second or
will only baffle them.
How do you think I should sell them my proposals?
Many thanks in anticipation,
Juan Jose Morales y Castillo,
