Je suis Charlie



On January 7, five cartoonists (Charb, Cabu, Honoré, Tignous and Wolinski) and seven others were killed by gunmen at the offices of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

This is horrible and it doesn't make any sense to me.  I immediately wanted to say or draw something, but I couldn’t make sense of the incident.  I tried looking at it from several angles.  They were obviously great cartoonists.  As for the satire, the cultural or religious critique, I don’t know if it was good or bad, if it was funny or not.  At first glance, some of their cartoons do seem kind of racist and stereotypical, and I get the impression they were made to provoke and bully a specific community.  But none of that matters now, because the main point is this:

No drawing is worth killing someone over, even when it's offensive.

Expressing this message is what matters now.

So, I made this cartoon.

Take care,

-IAMO


El 7 de enero , cinco caricaturistas ( Charb , Cabu , Honoré , Tignous y Woliński ) y otras siete personas murieron a manos de hombres armados en las oficinas del periódico satírico Charlie Hebdo .

Esto es horrible y no tiene ningún sentido para mí. Inmediatamente quise decir o dibujar algo, pero no podía dar sentido al incidente. Intenté mirarlo desde varios ángulos. Ellos fueron, obviamente, excelentes dibujantes. En cuanto a la sátira, la crítica cultural o religiosa, no sé si era buena o mala, si era chistosa o no. A primera vista, algunas de sus caricaturas parecen algo racistas y estereotipadas , y tengo la impresión de que se hicieron para burlarse y provocar a una comunidad específica. Pero nada de eso importa ahora, porque el punto principal es éste:

Ningún dibujo es razón para matar a alguien, incluso cuando es ofensivo.

Expresar este mensaje es lo que importa ahora.

Así que hice este dibujo.

Saludos,

The Fearless Zombie Hunters: Heads Will Roll


This illustration was made exclusively for Sadhaka Studio and it features Candy from their awesome indie comic, The Fearless Zombie Hunters.

The Fearless Zombie Hunters is a black comedy about a trio of zombie slayers led by Professor Abronsius, who is joined by the incompetent and disgraceful Angel, Son of El Angel, the greatest wrestler ever in Mexican history, and Candy, the sassy, sexy, feminine balance between those two complete opposites. The three of them try to rid the world of the coming zombie plague.

Sadhaka Studio invited me to join them at their Comic-Con International 2014 booth and we will have a limited of these prints available.  Be sure to stop by Small Press table P-12 and say hi.

Scary Cute Ugly



I couldn't decide which kind of monster to draw, so I decided to draw different kinds of monsters sitting at a table having some coffee and cookies.

Originally, there were supposed to be four monsters, but I thought it would be an interesting idea to show only three monsters and have the spectator be the fourth one.

So, what do you think? If you were the fourth character, what kind of monster would you be and what drink would you be having?

No podía decidir qué tipo de monstruo dibujar, así que decidií elaborar diferentes tipos de monstruos sentados una mesa tomando café y comiendo galletas.

Originalmente, se suponía que eran cuatro monstruos, pero pensé que sería una idea interesante mostrar solamente tres monstruos y que el espectador sea el cuarto.

Así que, ¿qué les parece? Si ustedes fueran el cuarto personaje, ¿qué clase de monstruo serían y qué bebida estarían tomando?

Zorras Del Mal 3


It's time for a new "Zorras Del Mal" pin-up just in time for Halloween! Composition-wise, it was obviously inspired by old tales from the crypt comic covers.  I took advantage of that because I really wanted to bring back Demona, Lucybella, and Jezebeth, the three characters from the original "Zorras Del Mal," and feature them in this one.  Now, about the word "zorras", just to be clear (because I've been asked about it before), its meant to be taken in the literal English-Spanish translation sense.  In English "zorra" means "Fox", as in Jimi Hendrix's song "Foxy Lady", as in "sexy."  But, when you translate it to Spanish, it means slut or worse.  Now, I don't care what it means in Spanish.  I'm taking it back! So, there you go.  A "Zorras del Mal" horror pin-up.  Hope you like it! Happy Halloween, everybody!

Naivi The Sorceress




I made this illustration for COMCOM's Sorcerers, Magician, and Wizards Art Jam.  I wanted to convey the feeling of an 80's cartoon.  While I was drawing her, this character kept morphing from good to evil and back to good again.  I would say the finished character is definitely one of the good guys.  What do you think of Naivi? What would you say is her story?

Hice esta ilustración para el Art Jam de COMCOM con el tema de Hechiceros, Magos, y Brujos.  Quería expresar la sensación de una caricatura de los ochenta.  Cuando la estaba dibujando, este personaje se transformaba de buena a mala y otra vez a buena.  Yo diría que, definitivamente, el personaje final es una de los buenos.  ¿Qué les parece Naivi? ¿Cuál dirían que es su historia?

正義 (Justice)



I made this doodle for COMCOM's "Samurai" Art Jam.  There are so many varieties of Samurai armor, and they are so colorful and beautiful and complex, that the challenge for me was to simplify that by using the less number of shapes and colors to translate it into cartoon form.  Also, I wanted to try coloring with a mono-chromatic scheme.  In this project I only used variations of yellow for the armor, but decided to paint the mask red, just like the “rising sun” background.

Don't Be Afraid

Don't Be Afraid by IAMO Monster Illustration

I made this doodle for COMCOM’s Monster Art Jam.  I really like rock concert silkscreen posters; so, some inspiration on this piece came from that.  The “Pink Elephants on Parade” sequence from Disney’s ‘Dumbo’ (yeah, the one where he’s drunk having a bad trip) was definitely another influence.  I wanted to give it a dream-like feeling and have the monster be really big.  The little girl holding a lollipop came as an afterthought, when I needed something to show the size of the monster.  I remembered how my little 2-year-old niece is not afraid of anything, and started playing with the idea of the monster being more scared of the little girl that she is of it. The title, “Don’t Be Afraid”, is actually what the little girl is saying to the monster.
