Wishing you all Health, Work and plenty of inside Peacefulness in this brand new year.
Here's something different. I used to do comic strips ages ago; came up with different characters. One of them is this one here: Damnac. A very angry guy who used to get upset very easily. I did 6 pages for a humor magazine while at the university, but never pursued it at a more serious/professional level. Comics is a whole different/intricate ball game and I always was too much into Caricature.
Hope you enjoy.

That's pretty cool to see Ismael, neat to see something different from you. You would have been a very good comic book artist too.

Hi Jason my friend and colleague!
Thanks. Yeah, till I found how difficult it is to keep up with pages and backgrounds and all the rest.
Caricature was/is/will be my true love. Comics is a whole different world.

Hi Ismael...I noticed your website. Your work is fabulous and very inspiring. Could you tell me which medium is the Abraham Lincoln, Mike Tyson and Santana done in in your website? I'm assuming the main two mediums you work in are Acrylics and Colored pencils?
