I work as an Art Director in the Themed Entertainment industry. I like to draw and paint comic book characters when I'm not eating pizza. Thanks for visiting!

Snow White Fashionista by MauricioAbril
Snow White Fashionista
I was inspired recently at Disneyland to draw the Disney Princesses as everyday girls at the park so here's Snow White to kick it off. I hope I have time to do these as this one was a lot of fun, but we'll see. I usually always end up having more ideas than time to execute them but such is life. Happy Friday, everyone!
Motivarti Mentorship by MauricioAbril
Motivarti Mentorship
There's still one week left to apply for the MOTIVARTI program to be partnered with a professional art mentor for 10 weeks. What most of you probably don't know about me is that I became an artist AFTER having already gone to college to study Molecular Biology in order to become a researcher.

When I made the decision to switch careers, it was back at a time when the available resources to help someone like me who knew nothing about art or the industry were limited only to extension classes at established schools. So it's always been a goal of mine to help potential artists who might not otherwise have access to the best resources. So far everyone who has emailed me for artistic and professional advice has been very professional and courteous with how they've done it, so I'm happy to continue doing so. Please pass this along to anyone you feel might benefit :)
Motivarti 10 Week Mentorship by MauricioAbril
Motivarti 10 Week Mentorship
I'm excited to announce I'll be joining MOTIVARTI as a Mentor for their Fall 2015 schedule. It's an art-based organization designed to connect aspiring artists with industry professionals through a 10-week mentorship that is structured around the individual mentees. The application process will run from June 29th - July 16th and the mentorship will take place from Sept 6th - Nov 14th. I'll be posting more about this especially since this is something I'm really excited to be doing as someone who switched from a career in Molecular Biology to Art. Thanks to technology like Skype anyone anywhere in the world can apply too. If you're interested check out their website for more info…
For any of you who will be attending the 2014 Long Beach Comic Con in 2 weeks, I'll be at Table 1803 in Artist's Alley. Tickets available at I'll be showcasing brand new artwork and as usual giving away free prints all weekend long. Hope you can make it out!
