About Representation

  • October 14, 2020

About representation. I always knew representation is important, but I've never felt represented in movies or series or books when they portray a puertorrican character. Although I know a lot of puertorricans like me the truth is these characters are not portrayed like me or others like me. The other day I was watching Vampires vs The Bronx and there’s a kid reading Salem's Lot wearing a Ghost shirt named Luis Costa played wonderfully by Gregory Diaz IV. Just a few seconds later Miguel (played by Jaden Michael) calls Luis puertorrican Harry Potter. There, that moment when they called...

Life In Decay

Hello! It has been a while since I took some time to write something, these past few months have been a rollercoaster, but I’m not here to talk about that. Last year for fall I created the #witchlife series and was more popular than I anticipated. What I didn’t anticipate either was the amount of pressure that was going to put me under. I had to create a new series this year and this time I planned it better. Different than last year I won’t post a new drawing every day(or will I?), but every Friday I will reveal a illustration for the series. Doing it that way makes my life way easier....

Video Games

Yesterday was Sony PlayStation 5 presentation and although I like video games I’ve never pay attention to this events. Usually because I’m working or I’m working. Yesterday, while taking a break from jamming a little with one of my customers that became a friend we watched part of it and I was impressed. Let me give you a bit of back story. I was born in December 1978, that make some 41 years at the time of writing this. The Atari games were fun, although I got to play it when it wasn’t a novelty anymore. I got the Sega Master System when there were no stores in town carrying games...

I Can’t Breathe

I Can’t Breathe

I can’t breathe. When spring comes around and my allergies flare up. It is a really horrible sensation to not be able to breathe. I can’t breathe. When I get asthma and it’s almost impossible to take a deep breath and there’s no air coming in, not being able to finish a sentence when talking. I can’t breathe. I wake up in the middle of the night breathless and my chest hurts in the morning. I use an inhaler and hope that it works and I don’t stop breathing while I’m asleep. I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe, that phrase has been haunting me all day. I can’t breathe....

Tattooing post COVID-19

There are new standards and protocols in the shop, and they are absolute. Tattoos are by appointment only, there will be no walk ins to the shop.

The Barbarian

Here’s another Dungeons and Dragons inspired set of sketches. I’ve been enjoying doing these sketches a lot, to the point I’m thinking of making an art book or sketchbook, sort of monster’s manual. Gotta work that idea a bit more in my head, make a list of monsters and classes I would like to draw, shit! How about you guys help me with this idea? What monsters would you want to see me draw? Remember to follow my social media gambitsink and let me know what you think.

So this is my thank you letter to them. I love you guys. This Is Us: Friendship I did not know how much I needed to see Scorpion from Mortal Kombat hugging a giant teddy bear until today.

Hello everyone! I hope that all of you are healthy and doing good. I’ve been a bit MIA in these past few weeks, but no worries I’m back.
