This is the first of several in a video series explaining a little bit about my history and my path as an artist. Often people think that my most recent project is my first project. However each project or painting is just another step closer to that masterpiece. So if you ever had question about why I paint the way I do or why I choose to work with certain color palettes or even the subject matter I choose, watch this video and the others to follow and it will provide some insight about my art process.
I was commissioned to do a mural with a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu theme. This video shows some of the painting process behind the piece. Special thanks to @cortesnyc and @carladepuertorico for coming through and helping out.
For those who follow my work you may or may not know what I do and for those new to my work here’s a breakdown of what I do. First and foremost I’m an illustrator. Regardless of the medium or subject matter everything I create and design starts with an illustration. When I work with acrylics or working on a mural, it all starts with an illustration or sketch. The mediums\ may change but the technique I use are the same. For more than a decade I have also worked in the field of graphic arts and design, more specifically apparel design. I didn’t study fashion or graduate with a degree fashion, I kind of grew into this field by being creative and living in New York City. Graphics arts has allowed me to use my skills in more ways than illustration was able to. With apparel graphics I can connect with more people across the globe. This has allowed me to build and grow and an artist and designer. On occasion I work on web design but that’s very rare due to time constraints, usually about one project a year.
Here is a breakdown list of my services:

Print Design for Marketing
