Hello. My name is Adrian Arvizu. I wanted to leave you a comment and tell you that your work is down right outstanding, except for the Laker colors on Lebron; maybe that's just irony but Lebron ain't cut out for LA. He's a bitch. Anyways, I think your work is great. It reminds me of Tim Sale, and you can be better. Those baseball ones and the Superman one are badass. You should be huge! I hope in the coming years, I see your name rising amongst the illustrators of the world. Good luck.
Hey Adrian, thanks so much for kind words. I’m glad you like my stuff, although I’m not even worthy to stand in Tim Sale’s shadow, let alone be mentioned in the same sentence as him. But I appreciate the sentiment just the same. Thanks again for looking.
And Lebron is a little bitch isn’t he? But I can dream…
hello. can i ask you something? what do you mean RAFTERS? i heard that shaq will raise his jersey number 32 to the rafters.. uhm, pardon me.. but i don`t kinda understand that word, :))
"Rafters" refers to a part of the Staples Center way up near the ceiling where they hang up the Championship banners and the retired jerseys of some Lakers Legends. Shaq’s number, 34, will be retired, meaning that no other future Laker can wear the number on their jersey.
I saw your artwork on Saturday ! O:
I picked up your card; ah how awesome.
You have some amazing artwork keep up the good work! (: And congrats on graduating !
Can I ask you how long it took you to create each artworrk ? :O
The time it takes to do each piece varies. Some take a few hours to complete while others, like the baseball portraits, take a day or two or three to complete.
