CARDBOARD MADDNESS ... and its reasons ...

Since the Puerto Rican day parade and Cardboards, I been obsess with markers and sketching, in an absurd way. Frequent art shows, and all  carry have been cardboard. Now not many people would buy them so  have been drawing and giving them out. On July 20th, up in Washington Heights I will be drawing on card boards and given them out to whom ever wants them. The event starts from 4pm, and ends at 10pm. Its a dance program with live art, host by Maury Matos from the 55 Crew that he represents.

Location: Negro Claro

Painted Live once again at the Love Save Japan , on 42nd street!

I so enjoy helping others, an in a special way using my art to help make another person happy and also helping out a cause!

Since march 2012 My life went upside down in a domestic disruption. Everything since then has gotten better. From those rough moments of my life  was able to progress in the most beautiful way, with art. I want to share with you some Updates to my most recent art adventures :

The Puerto Rican Day Parade, that was held June 9th on 5th avenue Manhattan.
I was considered by Adrian Viajero Roman, a fellow art friend and dope artist as well, invited me to help him with his art project for "Camaradas"; a local bar in East Spanish Harlem. The Camaradas team had an awesome vision to help educate the public and their community about fallen heroes and their ancestors by holding large portraits of each hero. I helped by making the portraits, as the entire Camaradas team walked through 5 avenue with so much pride!

The experience was one that I can never forget. Every time I started sketching the faces into the cardboard,  I felt as if they were staring back at me. Now I sketched many things and people as well as animals before, but this experience was nothing that I can compare to. After finalizing the finishing touch onto each piece, again there was a sense of a silence and a looking back feeling that came about me, every time  looking into my art work. I assure you I don't know how this, or why this eve occur.

Below I will post the remainder of all the images and the end results of the art work, I do hope you like them as much as  enjoyed making them.
