I’ve had three cases this week of people taking my images and putting them on things to sell and make money off of. It’s so not cool. Everything is copyrighted by me. I took the time to paint each and every painting to earn money to support my family. It’s not fair for someone else to steal images so they can make money. Take an art class and learn how to paint in your own style. The easy, short way is never the best. It will give you bad karma. Sorry, just venting. It makes me so mad. Especially when we ask people politely to please stop using my art to sell for their own commercial gain and they respond like it is MY fault and don’t even offer a courteous apology.
This is my newest painting for framed prints and my host mascott for Mantastic Comix!You wont find her in any old poolside party but you can find her only here on the most Mantastic site ever!Help me find her a name and win her print for free!!
Starting to get the hang of it!
I’m trying to capture the spirit of papel picado by way of Sharpie markers and typing paper. It’s a little tricky, but so far so good, I’m now working on the border of this design. CLICK ON THE HEADLINE TO LEAVE ME A COMMENT.
I’m on a roll with this internet stuff, so my wife helped me set up an etsy store. We have our ChicanoPopArt shop that we’ve had for years, but Kathy says Etsy is where it is at. I just posted two paintings and a birdhouse.
Thanks to all of you for embracing my new endeavor and making me feel at home here. Damn, I’m even twittering now too, thanks to Kathy!

Hope this is not too racy (laughs). I used to always carry around a blank sketchbook with me when I was in high school. I doodled in it in class when I was supposed to be taking notes. My wife always teases me that I like to draw curvy women, sometimes she even makes me tone it down. I tell her “amor, I’m drawing you” and then she gives me her blessing. This is a drawing I did in high school in my sketchbook. Guess I was bored in that class whatever it was! The drawing was inspired by an iron on t-shirt design I had.
Nowadays people call it a journal. But the mantastic term is SKETCHBOOK, ok? This started in pencil, then I went over it with Pentel markers. In case you are wondering, no I was never in a gang. I did have a 48 Chevy bomb and I was in a car club called The Untouchables here in Phoenix, but that was after high school. We all fixed up our cars and we lived to drive them up and down Central Avenue to show them off on weekends. That was in the mid to late 1980s. I don’t think they let you do that anymore. We used to chauffer quinceneras and weddings for our friends and families, and they always let us crash the reception. Ah, those were the days…
