I was born in Baldwin Park, California in 1982. Four years later I was kidnapped by a pack of wild Sasquatch and forced to live in Spokane, Washington. I had lived there until September of 2012, where I moved in with my girlfriend in Pasco, Washington, one third of an area known as Tri-Cities
I'm an illustrator and painter, I create indie comics and do commissioned acrylic paintings. I also work in silkscreen (serigraphy) and watercolor. I also work in silkscreen (aka screen printing aka serigraphy). I print postcards, posters, and t-shirts. I sell my art several times a year at comic book conventions. I have several silkscreen postcards in stock if you'd like to see ones I have made.
Aside from art, I'm an avid backgammon player. If you ask my girlfriend, I spend too much money collecting kung fu movies, and Mexican comic books. I own a lot of Spanish language films and comic books, I'm always working to improve my Spanish language skills. I'm also a bit of a tea connoisseur, I only drink loose leaf tea. I love various black chai blends, earl grey, Irish breakfast, oolong. I play a lot of backgammon and othello.
As for postcards, I'd love to receive any weird and strange postcards, historical informative postcards (I especially like cathedrals, churches, and other old buildings), and even postcards about where you are from. I love early animation (Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Felix the Cat, Popeye, etc), comics scifi, horror, if you have any postcards like that. If you are also an illustrator, I'd love an illustrated postcard. I also have an interest in Central and South American historical sites. My favorite places of interest are México, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Spain. I'd love to find pen pals from those countries and maybe regularly exchange once or twice a month.
Surprise me, I'm new to Postcrossing and excited to start exchanging!
I'd be willing to do direct trades if anyone is interested in a watercolor postcard. I draw mostly cartoon and comic illustration.
