Here is my answer to this weeks perspective assignment. We had to create 2 illustrations with an extreme close shot. The first thing that came to my mind was the former President being told to sign a contract by a little demon ball hovering over his shoulder, of course!

I can honestly say that Joey Velasco is one of the most inspirational artists I have ever come across. His insane dedication to his art, his family, his community, and to God are qualities everyone can admire. I respect this man very much and I hope you can take a chance to read up on his story and take a look at his art here:
"It is with deep sadness that we share the news of our dear friend, Joey Velasco’s recent passing. He suffered from a heart attack and seizures a few days ago. Kindly offer prayers for the eternal rest of his soul. May perpetual light shine upon him..."
"Everyone knows he's going to die, but nobody seems to be completely and absolutely prepared for it. Nobody lives each day ready to die; life should be lived to the full each day."
Creating art till the end

i've started to come up with a new story for some of my personal work. It deals with a father and daughter on a fishing trip. Here are a few samples of my first sketches of fish. I will ultimately create my own fish species, but I need to sketch a few more fishes for reference. These few were done with colored pencil.
HAAAPPPY SUMMERRRRRR =]

More of my designs are in the "Mr. Bean's Big Fall" section on my online portfolio:www.AquinoArt.com
Hello all! It has been a while since I have posted work, so I think it's about time I unveil the Mr. Bean project I have been working on. Above are a couple of my designs. If you're wondering why Mr. Bean is covered in clouds, let me explain ;]
In the opening credits of every original Mr. Bean episode, we see Mr. Bean fall from the sky and hit the ground under a spotlight. But the viewers are never told why this strange man drops and hits the ground face first as seen in this youtube clip:
Well A few months ago, it came to me. I suddenly had an answer. Might not be the correct one, but I think it works. A little fantastical but It works.
So Mr. bean was actually up there in the clouds in line waiting to go into heaven (Heaven is actually kind of like a huge amusement park). But of course, Mr. Bean is in the very back and getting impatient since all he could see was a line of people stretching for miles. So as he waited there mumbling and grumbling, he suddenly got an idea when he looked at a few clouds near him. He decided that the fastest way to get to heaven would be to put a bunch of clouds on himself as a suit and walk to the front with none the wiser. But in typical Mr. Bean fashion as he walks towards the front in his cloud disguise, he begins to float and fly out of control.... heading towards Peter, the entrance manager of heaven.
Bean eventually hits Peter and knocks over his podium.
Peter is very angry.
Peter decides that since this is the second time Bean tried to cut, he will just send him back to earth so he doesn't have to deal with him for a while. He didn't send him to heck because that would be a little too extreme.
Mr. Bean then falls from the sky and ends up somewhere in England with a second chance at life.

Went down to Monterey this past weekend with Matias and Ernesto. I'm glad I came out, the day was so beautiful. Here are some photos of my adventure, with some paintings that I worked on. We first went to Mission San Carlos Borromeo, then off to Pt. Lobos.
There was a very spiritual feeling within the complex
Matias and I trying to get the green and the purple right haha
