As a graphic artist I spend a lot of time in front of my desk or drawing table by myself working long hours. The soundtrack to those long hours is usually a combination of podcasts and 90’s hip-hop. These pieces were illustrated to honor some of the artists that have supplied me not only with entertainment, but also inspiration and energy. All three pieces were vector based, hand drawn and finished in Adobe Ilustrator.
CESAR VALTIERRA hails from the sun soaked desert of the wild, wild western city of El Paso, Texas. He wields a pencil like an outlaw gunslinger, drawing up a storm since the tender age of two. He is infamous throughout the land for his provocative ink drawings, his meticulous vector illustrations, and his eye catching graphic design work. Like a thief in the night, Mr. Valtierra is a man of few words but one who with his work makes quite an impression. He follows the beat of his own drum and answers to no one; except of course, his fiancée Victoria, the love of his life, his inspiration and muse. And their two cats, Chubs and Pretty Boy.
