Last Saturday I participated in this year’s Pomona Chalk Festival. The them was “My Favorite Book”. I recently received this wonderful book titled “Latinx Comic Book Storytelling” in the mail from the author Frederick Luis Aldama and it has the cover art of one of my favorite cartoonist of all time, Jaime Hernandez so I decided to chalk it!
Last week I visited the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena to look at the Renaissance art in their permanent collection. It’s nice to know that you don’t have to fly all the way to Florence, Italy to see work that was painted by Renaissance masters. They have a lovely collection and these are just a few of my favorites.
This was my first time participating in the San Fernando Day of the Dead Chalk event and it was a lot of fun. The event is quaint and in its 3rd or 4th year. I loved it and can’t wait to do it again next year.

Thanks to Kathryn Blackmer Reyes and San Jose State University, Martin Luther King Library for hosting a great exhibit. I am honored to be a part of this exhibit with such talented artists. The Latino comics will be on display in the library through Sept 30th, 5th floor Cultural Heritage Center, at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Library. Stop by if you are in the area.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to paint a butterfly mural at Latona Elementary School in Los Angeles. This was part of the UCLA Volunteer day mural project. I love working on this project, I got a busload of kids from the 2016 UCLA Freshman class to help paint. This is a great way for the Bruins to give back to the community and it’s so much fun.
Had the opportunity to visit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art yesterday to see Guillermo del Toro’s art collection on display. There were many unusual artworks, to say the least. It was an amazing exhibit.
Had the greatest time chalking at Ventura Harbor Village last week-end. It was a gorgeous day, lovely weather and wonderful people!

Had a wonderful time at the City of Commerce Library’s 2016 Comic Book Invasion. Had a good children’s workshop and the kids were great! Much thanks to the library for putting on the event.
