Hello, my name is Roberto and I'm addicted to coffee, gummies, and art supplies. I'm no hero but my secret weapons are experimentation, talent, vision, and passion. Is no secret that I have a long love affair with graphic design...

Current Residence: Chicago, IL
When I started college, I had to take life drawing classes. We used to spend days and days drawing with charcoal and sanguine. I had a Japanese instructor and he was amazing, sadly I was never that good, but I tried. 
The class was small, about five of us, and the models were fairly good. The best model was a beautiful girl, she was tall, slender, and flexible as a dancer should be. The soft curves of her body translated to the paper wonderfully and she was very nice. 
The rest of the models were interesting, we had a petite woman with unruly hair and a double mastectomy, a middle aged gay guy—who seemed to enjoy the modeling a bit much, he didn't wear a robe during the breaks and he also liked to do yoga on the small stage while in the nude. 
Some of the models were African-American and we also had an elderly, short man with a very bad temper, he used to glare at us from the stage while posing and cursing under his breath. I suspect some of them were homeless, which is nothing wrong with that, but there was a sadness in their eyes that was hard to ignore, maybe that's the reason why I'm not that great at drawing faces, because I used to not look at them…I felt like somehow we were taking advantage of them, violating their privacy and taking away their dignity. I still wonder if that's the case.

It has been a super busy year; no time for anything, other than labor intensive work, which I lack enthusiasm to even post it on DB. Also, I've been sketching, painting and drawing lately; I really enjoy experimenting with different media and I find myself exploring the art world while developing my, well hidden, artistic dexterity.

It has been a good year and I'm happy to share with you (whoever you are) my work. Thanks for visiting and fav'in my posts, I really appreciate it! Oh, I also created a Facebook page to share my artsy side R. Balderas & Monkeys please visit and Like.

Update: I've been busy working with the comedy group Democracy Burlesque designing posters for their upcoming season, the re-branding will be next. Also, playing with watercolor, figure drawing open studios, and reading graphic design books. It's a good start of 2012!

Being my own boss means: having to talk smack behind my back, steal my own pens and toilet paper and complain about work by the water pitcher...
