Super Albino: Llamas are awesome! (246)
My Bio
I'm an Artist and Illustrator from the San Francisco Bay Area, in service to the rest of the planet!

Art has been my life since childhood, and I continue to serve for its place in the universe by continuing to evolve and contribute. I am in awe of the great masters and those with great potential to be. I am a student of both great impressionists and comic book illustrators. I wield a variety of media from graphite to ink to acrylic to digital to realize vision that is nurtured by the things that inspire me.

My creative influences range from the world-renowned masters to the incognito revolutionaries of the art game. Leonardo Da Vinci, Alphonse Mucha, George Perez, Jack Kirby, MC Escher, Adam Hughes, as well as other visionaries like The Watchowskis, Guillermo del Toro, and Kevin Smith are among my many influences, but I am mostly influenced by the ever-changing world around me.

A cold pint of Guinness is usually the perfect end to my day. Actually, it's several pints.

Oh no worries! And no pressure, always whenever you're ready! I appreciate your continued business and support:-)

Just 2 or 3 days at a time. So there will be a third part to this tomorrow.

Thank you for your response. I apologize if I misinterpreted your initial comment. I appreciate engaging in intelligent dialogue that can move the conversation forward.


You are correct, BLM is a much needed movement in the US due to its history and the place of black Americans in our society. Systemic racism has done so much to damage and destroy the black community and that system unfortunately includes our law enforcement. George Floyd was killed, on camera, for an alleged crime that did not deserve capitol punishment. This event was the tipping point of a long list of unjust arrest and killing of black men and women in the hands of the police. There are white Americans who have committed similar crimes and worst atrocities that have been arrested peacefully and were given the chance to serve their sentences alive. I'm sure you've heard of all the mass murders in schools and public places committed by mostly white Americans with assault weapons. A white man who raped an unconscious woman proven by witnesses served only months due to his privilege. You are absolutely right. Our police better training. Our police need reform.


George Floyd was not a perfect human being. He made mistakes. But he did serve his sentence for his infractions and has served his community to atone for his sins. This man did not deserve to die casually and carelessly like he did in the video. This piece of art is an expression of my anger and disenchantment with my government. I chose his image for this drawing, but he is just one of many.


I truly appreciate your response and expressing your opinion based on your experiences. I wish all my dialogue was as intelligent. I truly wish you a good day. And peace.
