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
