My Bio

I’m Raul Esquivel and I'm a designer, illustrator, developer, musician, photographer, & author born & raised in Los Angeles, CA.

I’m known as a designer and illustrator to most, a musician and record producer to others, and a person who never stops creating things to almost anyone who knows me.

When I’m not busy making things, I enjoy being in nature or visiting the Griffith Observatory. I also love drawing and watching documentaries regularly (although I almost never watch TV).

I write and record music under the name A Circle for Sunday, I’m the founder of Eagle & Bison Design Company, and I also own a small type foundry called Esquivel Type Foundry where make and sell fonts.

Good to here
Thats a good thing to do, to get the hang of Dodge and Burn, can be used for lots of things, thay are awesome tools

Tip: When using Dodge and Burn, make sure you always start off with ( off set colours
) You can't dodge and burn pure white or black

Send me a message or something, if you make something out of this, would like to see it :)

Thanks again

yeah i was doing something earlier with dodge and burn and i was using black and white and it would only turn things gray.

but yeah sure i'll send you a link when i get something done!
