These are a series of portraits of famous monsters (and some not-so-famous) that I’ve painted for Halloween over the the past few years. Enjoy!
Feliz Dieciséis de Septiembre! Happy 16th of September (Mexican Independence Day)!
Today is the 211th Anniversary of Mexican Independence from Spain on the 16th of September, 1810. Below are portraits of two of the most prominent heroes of that era of Mexican history.
This is a portrait I made of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, (Also known As El Padre De La Patria “The Father of The Fatherland”) leader of the Mexican war of independence.
José María Morelos y Pavón (September 30, 1765 – December 22, 1815) was a Mexican Roman Catholic priest and revolutionary rebel leader who led the Mexican War of Independence movement, assuming its leadership after the execution of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla in 1811.
I had the privilege of doing a digital art demo to some of the members of River Ridge Association of Fine Arts in Spokane, Washington. Working on this piece was part of the demo.
Feliz Cinco De Mayo! To celebrate, I painted this portrait of General Ignacio Zaragoza in 2020. He was the hero of the battle of Puebla, Also Known As Cinco De Mayo.
Benito Juarez was President of Mexico During the Battle of Puebla (5th of May, 1862)
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’”
– Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
