Characters With Color

One of my favorite themes has always been fish and anything aquatic. This piece was inspired by the art challenge at my work. I had a lot of fun with the shape, colors, and integration of contrasting shapes.

Depression/industrial era hero.

Tambien un tema que me encanta es lucha libre. Viva Santo y el Demonio Azul!!! Me habria gustado eligir un nombre copado por este luchardor, pero nada me viene. Lo llamare Jorge Sanchez el Sucio.

no se si este nombre del luchadora funccionara, creo que su nombre debe ser ..."jose Manuel Maria Lopez, el santo del muerte"
