Frank Frazetta once said: “I hope my work has inspired young artists”. One of those artists is for sure Mauricio “El-Grimlock” Herrera, whose work, art contributions, ideas, teachings and committed mentorships over time also inspired thousands of young dreamers in Chile and all around the globe to initiate their paths into the big world of art (including yours truly). Master of masters, he is always eager to pass his knowledge and his professional advice to any talented and promising artist or artist to be. During all his career as illustrator and graphic designer, he’s been giving many conferences, lectures, workshops, judging international contests, motivating others and assisting everyone by giving them high-quality guidance tons of times expecting nothing in return. He’s the one that shares and keeps sharing never hiding his resources and tips to anyone. He is an example of integrity, goodwill, patience, trust, loyalty, knowledge, pioneering, talent, and hard work. Probably one of the most inspiring, respected, recognized illustrators and creators in his own country and certainly, of course, worldwide. Thank you for everything, Mauricio, thank you El Grimlock, from all of us
A brief stroll through El-Grimlock's gallery will show you what an amazing and talented artist he is, but a deeper look at his paintings reveals an incredible passion and creativity, no matter what subject matter or style he tries! His scenes are beautifully composed, expertly rendered, and most importantly, they tell a story. It is inspiring to see, and I am glad we have artists like el-grimlock in the DeviantArt community!
