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.
