Lowrider Arte Feature



This my friends is a truly GREAT honor! I don't think the editors of the Lowrider Arte magazine could have pictured me jumping up and down with excitement when I found out that I was a featured artist last (December/January). There are lots of prestigious illustration magazines and competitions (especially now days). But lets face it. I'm still a big kid and I started reading Lowrider Arte in 1990, I've wanted to be a featured artist in it since then. 21 years later dreams do come true. A very small success to some, but a huge smile for me. This is one of the first places I saw a positive reflection of brown artists creating. The original painting is of my son, my Dancing Lion.
