Mexican Folklore

What art tools do you use, and do you have any tools or brands that you recommend?
When I’m sketching I use pencil and watercolor. HWC Watercolor brand is pretty awesome.

What sources would you recommend for artists that are interested in pursuing your art medium?
I have so many resources when it come to being an artist but the best advice obviously comes from all the artist that you love. Taking pieces and reforming them into your own liking this for 2D art but for 3D art look at the YouTube cosplayers they have the best advice on material and techniques. You can build anything.

How and when did you start creating artwork?
I started creating art since I was in elementary school drawing Transformers and Bart Simpson over and over again. I have Marvel Cards so I would draw them over and over again for friends. It made sense to me because I was a trouble maker and needed to be busy doing something (:

If you could give any advice to your past-artist-self, what would it be?
Don’t let school take away your art flow. When you enter school you are drilled on perfection and sometime the imperfections can lead to amazing ideas.

If you could create anything in the world, what would you create?
I would create toys that represent my culture and have more brown skin heroes in the comic books that tell our history and folklore.

What is your ultimate goal as an artist?
Is to able to create a brand with my creatures and give back to the community that supported me.

Are you ready for the Halloween season? Is it your favorite holiday? 
Yes, Halloween is my favorite season and with the difficulty of this pandemic its a little hart to prepare the same way we used to do. But it’s gonna be different and we are gonna have fun.

What do you love most about The Haunted Mansion? 
I love the portraits in the Haunted Mansions and just the stories behind everything. The ballroom is just the most amazing thing to see in there and always amazes me.

Who is your favorite Grim Grinning Ghost/room at the Mansion? 
I personally like the Hat box ghost as an adult and knowing the lore behind it. The ghosts that are my favorite are the Hitchhiking Ghost that show up next to you very cool.

The 2003 Haunted Mansion film with Eddie Murphy, yay or nay? 
I never watched it because I felt it was not my cup of tea.

Which is better and why: the traditional Haunted Mansion, or Haunted Mansion Holiday? 
Christmas Haunted Mansion is awesome because it does blend the Nightmare Before Christmas with the traditional but you you can beat the classic.

Would you like to share any stories/experiences/special memories that revolve around The Haunted Mansion? 
I rarely got to go to Disney when I was a kid but the one time I did remember I actually went with a my family and friend Alex. It was fun going on the Haunted Mansion with a friend because you can act all goofy on the ride. As we where getting onto the ride my friend stumbled and I ended up alone on the ride which sucked because we were not going to start the line again. So I ended up going alone and it was fun but could had been better with a friend at that age. That same year it was my first time on Space Mountain and the Matador it was crazy.

Would you take a hitchhiking ghost home? 
Nah, I believe in living things where they belong lol.

Have you participated in the Artist Lodge Gallery before?
Yes I have and there have always been fun and vendors have been very friendly and we made new friends every-time we did the live shows.
