My piece inspired by The Fifth Element for The Fifth Element artbook. That movie was a staple on TV syndication as a kid and when it came on I never changed the channel. 


Part 2: Link

I once had a foolish dream about doing my own graphic novel.
SO I did, I worked hard everyday whenever I could, and after some months it was finally finished!
How little did I know it would never come to light.
For almost a year I’ve been trying tirelessly to print it or find an publisher who is willing to print it, sadly no one is interested in wordless comics.
I did received very great feedback, but no one bought it.
So neither in the US nor Mexico I got t print my little 120 pages novel.
So instead of letting it be forgotten as many stuff I’ve done in the past, I decided to upload the stories to the internet.
So yeah, I hope someone likes it.
Maybe I was too foolish or inexperiences to believe that I could live of doing my own comics.
I’ll try harder in the future.


NYC in the 1980s.



After picking up a camera at the age of 15, Jamel Shabazz has been unknowingly become the first “visual documentarian” of hip hop. For over 30 years he’s captured the world around him. Every frame  of that world is a time portal that sparks emotion stemming from the scenes they represent. And if there is ever a glimpse into the foundations of street wear and its surrounding culture, it can be found in the pages of his first book.

“Back In The Days” is real deal documentation as it pertains to the origins of hip hop, not to mention hip hop fashion. No 2oK a day models. No makeup artists. No food trucks. The models in the book don’t need runways because they lived the life of style. Jamel Shabazz was there to capture it all.”

Bee Hotels for Solitary Bees

You may be wondering what bees need a hotel for, when they make their own hives. The truth is that many species of bees are solitary – the do not live in hives but instead construct their own nest. The main reason for this is because in these species every female is fertile and this would not make for comfortable communal living in a hive.
