Ni Una Menos (Not One More)

I’ve been writing this in my head for a few days now, it has been interrupting my thoughts and my other projects and I can’t go another day without getting it out. I was going to write in Spanish, because it pertains to current events in PR, but this is a message that needs to reach as many people as possible. Recently I woke up to the news that another woman had been found dead in PR and to add salt to that wound she had filed a domestic complaint in court against her partner and was dismissed by the judge. Her partner later confessed to having killing her. Not two days later another...

A Brother Has Fallen

Erico “La Bestia” Morales (1969-2021) The first time I met Erico was on my first year of tattooing professionally. Our mutual friend Dennis (who is the guitar player for Dantesco) brought him to the studio to talk about his next tattoo, of course. I was a bit anxious about it, not gonna lie, you see he was already a legend in the metal scene in Puerto Rico. He was not at all what I was expecting, don’t get me wrong he was Metal as fuck, but he also had a calming presence and after a few minutes of talking I knew I had a new friend. Fast forward a few months and tattoos were...

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...

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.

This Is Us: Friendship

Today was not a good day, I got some bad news. Expected news, but bad news nonetheless and that a story for another day. Today’s story is about how friendship pulled me from a dark place. I only mentioned Wilfred in the comic, but the truth is that without friends like Cynthia, Marla, Andrew, AJ and of course my son David, today would have been a really bad day. 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. Check out the trailer for the new expansion...

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. I’ve been working on some commissions and waiting anxiously to get back to the studio and start tattooing again. In the meantime I just keep myself busy sketching, drawing and playing video games and RPG (roll playing games). A few weeks ago I played some Dungeons & Dragons with my son a my good friend AJ via Skype using Roll20. We hadn’t played in a while and needless to say we had a lot of fun.

As days go by things seem to look a bit grimmer every time I check the news. I’m sure that all of you feel the same, after all we are all in the same boat Earth.

The Apocalypse We Wanted

Years ago my friend Anibal Delgado and I tried our first webcomic. The Zombiepocalypse: Humanity’s Worst Enemy Is Humanity Itself. We wanted to explore how humanity is worse than zombies if there was a zombie apocalypse. We published 24 weekly pages and looking back at them now, I have to say I’m really proud of them. They are full of mistakes and I can see everything I can do differently, but I am proud of those first baby steps. I am still learning how to make comics and every day I learn something new. One of the crazy ideas AJ (Anibal) had was that the zombies were created by aliens....
