I love Walt.

"A mere re- dedication to creativity is all man needs to start the creative juices flowing and then suddenly there is the energy - to “pun it off”, energy that seems to feed upon itself, so that each moment becomes a fresh start, each experience a new event, and the vision is forward-looking with
anticipation and wonder--not backward looking, full of regrets for neglected opportunities of the
past, or negative influences that creep in and block our vision."

My Art on a Car



















































A couple of months ago I did some new character illustrations for Taco Roco, a mexican restaurant here on the Central Coast in Cali. Just recently, Victor Gallardo(the marketing/promotions guy) designed a car label with my character illustration of Ricky Roco, their mascot, to sort of give their recent logo an upgrade.... I was so excited to see my little guy on the car! So if you're hanging around Santa Barbara County, look out for the TacoRocomobile!
