Spotted! | Oh, crikey! Here we have the first appearance of the rare “Infrared” slap in the wild! What a rare sighting, and what a treat indeed. It thrives in all habitats and conditions, so keep an eye out for sightings near you! | I’ll be doing an official release pretty soon (once I figure out how 🤔). If any of my homies have protips or best practices, hit me up! It’d be MUCH appreciated. #teamneversleeps
Whoooo, it’s been a hectic last couple of dayyyys, but I know I just need to hang in there and ride this out! I can see good things coming on the horizon - new house, new job, new art. “Just trust the process.” And at least I have @klynn_rae in my corner - she’s what gets me through those tough days! #teamneversleeps
Love✖️✝️✖️| I did a little app witchcraft for this one. Truth is - I only actually drew one eye! If you look real closely you might even be able to tell which. Is it the left or the right?? 🤔 #teamneversleeps
It’s a BUG HUNT! | I love this series: mainly 1 and 2, with sprinklings of Prometheus and Covenant, but 3 is dope in its own right. Resurrection we just ignore lol (Joss Whedon’s works are amazing, I just think he wasn’t a good fit for this series. Jean-Pierre Jeunet was a bit of an odd fit too). Anyway, it holds a very dear place near to my darkened science fiction heart...yet I’ve never really drawn the Xenomorph. Maybe deep down it just scares the shit outta me? 🤷🏽‍♂️ We’ll never know, but I’ve always said, “Out of all the creatures in all of science fiction, this is the one I’d like to go up against the least.” #teamneversleeps
SNEAK PEEK | That was quick!! Thank you @greyjampress 👊🏽 Got these teasers from my beautiful assistant @klynn_rae while at the day job. OMW back home to check ‘em out right now!!! Stay tuned. #teamneversleeps
THOTnos | I had this little gender-swap gem of an idea earlier this year. I’ll just drop it right here for now and add color later. 🤷🏽‍♂️ Let me know what you think! SNAP. #teamneversleeps
This brings me joy. Presented by @marsnever : "President Evil | I’ve not once referred to this buffoon as my president 🤢 I’ve had this idea floating around in my head for MONTHS, and finally decided what better day to unveil it than today?! I actually hate politics, but our world is too jacked up to remain silent. The less interest we, as people, have in it - the less input we have on issues that greatly and directly affect us ALL as a human race. Period. The damage that we have seen already is massive, and if it continues unchecked we may never recover. No one deserves to be blindly followed." #notmypresident

Snaggletooth. | Fresh boi with the clean cut - looking sharp! I like also working in these simpler (yet not necessarily easier) styles to help keep my mind on point. It forces me to “trim the fat” and focus on key design elements to deliver the concept. Plus, it’s fun af! #teamneversleeps
“I always get my man.” | I added some more to this hard-boiled neo-noir detective from a while back. I’ve always liked the idea of the “old school” detective in a futuristic / cyberpunk setting, epitomized by the character of Rick Deckard. Blade Runner has become one of the most important and influential films in science fiction, and definitely has had an indelible impact on me. I’ve made a few nods to that here with the tall collar of the coat, the squared off tie, and clear plastic business card (like Burke’s cards in Aliens). There’s also a tagged up dumpster because the more things change the more they stay the same lol. #teamneversleeps
“Merry Christmas...” | Yeah, this has nothing to do with the actual holiday, but I always loved that part in Home Alone 😱 Don’t take it personally, there’s plenty more where that came from. #teamneversleeps

Welcome back to my boy @emotional.jp! | I also realized I never posted the final design for our collaboration for his Year 2 drop. I’m so happy with how these came out!! Mad props to @superwowfactory too! 🙏🏽🔥 #teamneversleeps
DIRTY MONEY TROUBLE | Here’s a little blast from the past! I drew this as part of The Sketchbook Project circa 2015, but I have no idea what the theme was anymore lol. I especially enjoyed detailing all the swords and weapons, and used @monamifrost as reference for the girl. I always wished I had been able to keep the original but it is displayed as part of the permanent collection at @brooklynartlibrary now, so I’m not complaining haha👌🏽#teamneversleeps
Ya Bish! | Quickie post-it graffiti character sketch. #teamneversleeps
Yosh! I love the concept behind Ko-fi: it’s a service where you can support your favorite artists for the price of a coffee ☕️ I just started a page so if you enjoy my art, please consider supporting what I do! I plan on expanding into T-shirts, prints, stickers and even tattooing this year. Your investment would be invaluable and would help me continue to create more consistently! LINK IN BIO 👊🏽
Thank you! #teamneversleeps
I am ALIVE. | Snagged this shot of @creativedebuts exhibition from @rawkbeez - both dope feeds and I recommend following. I wasn’t able to find the origins of this quote, but it’s definitely a message I can get behind. And if you think about it, it’s more affordable. So we’re actually doing you a favor! 😎 On a serious note, all support is hugely appreciated - every bit helps continue my journey as an independent artist because I refuse to sell my soul to greedy corporations where I’m no more than an expendable slave. Sorry, not sorry. #teamneversleeps
I realized I never shared these rad pins I picked up from @corpsetits back at her @upperplayground show! I especially fell in love with the top design from the second I saw it. Now I just need some dope spots to put ‘em! #teamneversleeps
New s#%t! | The ol’ dinosaur (laptop) pulled through and I was able to finish this in time to take advantage of @greyjampress’ vinyl sticker special. These will be coming soon! I’m HYPED. I might even do a little giveaway when they arrive...🤔 #teamneversleeps
Currently Experiencing Technicolor Difficulties | Sigh, it’s definitely been one of those days. Not much to report - down, but I’m not going out without a fight! 😤 #teamneversleeps
超サイヤ人ブルー aka Sūpā Saiya-jin Burū | I jacked the colors from Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku for this sketch lol. Has everyone seen the Broly movie yet? I haven’t, but I heard it’s pretty good! #teamneversleeps
The Blazed Prince | I recently shared one of my warmup techniques to get my creative 👁 juices flowing. Here’s another one (DJ Khaled voice)! I grew up reading A LOT of Spawn comics, amongst other things, and the almost frantically hyper detailed style always stuck with me. It’s very liberating and a great way to loosen up the hand. Thank you @toddmcfarlane for all the inspiration in my formative years, and even now! #teamneversleeps
Art in Function | There is just something about the functional elegance of wiring and tech that gets me every time. Maybe it’s my love for cyberpunk aesthetic, or maybe it’s seeing something in its truest form, doing exactly what it was designed to, working in harmony. Or maybe I’m just crazy... #teamneversleeps
"I'm very definitely a woman, and I enjoy it" -Marilyn Monroe
This is still one of my most favorite illustrations ever. And it turned out to be such a popular design! | “The original illustration for the Year II collaboration project with @emotional.jp. Based on the same character from Year I, we incorporated another character and a backstory of two girls separated by class but destined to fight for love. I tried to capture that with this design: their struggle is ongoing, like the balance of Ying & Yang. As they reach for each other, the logo would go between them to further accentuate their forced separation. I’m really proud of this one!” #teamneversleeps
DEVELOPMENT PHASE: STATUS COMPLETE | Subject #13 is proud to report positive standard deviations in all categories. More to report later with @brainchild.nc! 𝘚𝘵𝘢𝘺 𝘛𝘶𝘯𝘦𝘥. #teamneversleeps
DEVELOPMENT PHASE | Subject #13 currently doing some testing for @brainchild.nc! 𝘚𝘵𝘢𝘺 𝘛𝘶𝘯𝘦𝘥. #teamneversleeps
“The Anatomy of a Migraine.” | Random idea I had to get out of my dome...if only it got this king hell headache out with it!⚡️🤯⚡️ #teamneversleeps
Sketches for days! | Study and learn realism / anatomy before trying your own style. Just the top layers of the muscular system are really necessary to know, but understanding how they interact with the layers beneath can be super beneficial too! #teamneversleeps
“Are You Awake?!” | Sometimes I like to loosen up by making these little jammers! I quickly scribble some loosely guided gesture lines, and challenge myself to see what shapes / letters / characters I can find in them. Here’s a typical progression of one of these sessions! #teamneversleeps
“Infrared-Tan” is an anthropomorphism of one of my favorite sneakers of all time: the Air Max 90 Infrareds. | Back in December I gifted one of these to the homey @zaddy__joji and another to @darklamor. Thanks for the support my dudes! | I actually have a very limited amount of these prints left. If anyone is interested shoot me a DM or email! 🙏🏽 #teamneversleeps
Gotta keep ‘em coming! Quick sketch at work to keep my mind going. 😩 It’s so DEAD. #teamneversleeps
Shhhh. Spotted lil’ bb in its natural habitat. I think it’s doing pretty well holding it’s own. I’m proud of you lil’ guy. #proudpapa #teamneversleeps
Throwback! | Here a little something from back in 2016! This one’s always been one of my personal favorites. There’s just something about badass girls and samurai swords 🤷🏽‍♂️ Man, I remember putting a lot of effort into that armor. The Japanese have always had an eye for amazingly beautiful and intricate details, and their samurai armors were no slouches!!! #teamneversleeps
Eyes glossy might be nap time lol. #doubtit #teamneversleeps
Babe need a name plate for her locker at work, so naturally I had to make sure she had the flyest joint in there! Gotta have her reppin’ #teamneversleeps correct 😎
Yes, I’m a fucking weirdo, but the fit was “lit”👌🏽 (It’s crazy that @bluesssatan just posted something asking artists to post a pic of themselves just as I was typing this up. Talk about serendipity!) | My name is 𝙈𝙖𝙧𝙨. I am a #Colombian-born NYC native currently living in the great Pacific Northwest city of Portland. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ll be updating my website 𝙢𝙖𝙧𝙨𝙣𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙡𝙚𝙚𝙥𝙨.𝙘𝙤𝙢 soon, including new work and also my first blog post. Stay tuned! #teamneversleeps is #weird and #youreweird.
When you look like your pets!
“The entrance strategy is actually more important than the exit strategy.” | I noticed this cool lighting after work one night. I’ve always loved the glowing look of red ambient light. It reminds me of that scene from the OG Predator movie when they’re all in the chopper and “Long Tall Sally” is playing. “Bunch of slack-jawed [expletive deleted] around here. This stuff will make you a god damned sexual Tyrannosaurus, just like me.” “Strap this on your sore ass, Blain!” None of the rest of the series tops the original, though Predator 2 with Danny Glover some closest! #teamneversleeps
Still getting back into the swing of it all, but here’s something I had the homey Ryuji drop some colors on a little while back. He did it all on his phone, no less! I think he did a damn phenomenal job. 🔥 Thanks, my dude! #teamneversleeps
NEVER SLEEP // NEVER SETTLE

WOW! Man, it’s been a minute, fam. This is the first time I’ve posted in months, but I can finally say my unofficial hiatus is officially over, and it feels damn good! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I don’t do the whole “New Year’s Resolution” thing, but I have promised myself to be a little less self-critical this year. I’ve never been one to compare myself to others, but I am extremely critical of my own work. I love details and obsessively strive to push myself to the fullest, but I realized that can also create an unhealthy and unsustainable level of demand from MYSELF. Note to self: not everything needs to be a bona-fide masterpiece (as subjective as that is anyway). It’s ok to just have fun too. “Trust the process.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last year started off really strong, but I lost my momentum and just got burnt out with social media. Hell, I pretty much got burnt out on everything…I been lurking though lol.

So first things first: I need to make sure I get right with some cats. There’s a few projects I’m way overdue on, so I will definitely be focusing on those first. You all know who you are. That was on me, REGARDLESS, so expect some updates ASAP.

Shout out to my boy @darklamour for some great insight and conversations about art, and for pushing me to overcome this hump I was stuck in. Shout to the homegirl @shankaron1 too! Always showing MAD love for my work and gassing me up heavy lol. And of course, huge shout out to my day one; my partner in crime; my best friend @klynn_rae. Just being with you makes me infinitely better.

Here’s to more work in the ’19.
LET’S GET THIS BREAD.

Cucumbers have never tasted that good !!! #london #teamneversleeps #friends #thereisnolastcall
I put a spell on you (to give me money). | This past week has been nuts again! Finally got a chance to finish this piece for #inktober2018. I’ll be posting a few more to catch up over the weekend! 🤔 Bonus points if anyone can decipher the symbols... #teamneversleeps #spell
On to the third! (Yes, I know 😓) Today we present to you a rare & special delicacy: Facehugger #roasted à la M240 flamethrower. It is prepared by meticulously draining all the blood, thus neutralizing it’s acidity, then charred to perfection! Bon appétit!👌🏽 #inktober2018 #teamneversleeps
Sometimes you have to keep the creative juices flowing in other ways too! | We gave this sick T-Rex skeleton to my oldest for his birthday, but certain “catnomalies” knocked it down from its shelf so I had to put it back together. Once again, it (metaphorically) LIVES! #teamneversleeps
Still grinding along on this #inktober2018 ish. This one was supposed to be #tranquil - a scene many, many years later after an all-out war ravaged this world. Now nature has reclaimed the remnants and all is quiet once again. Only rusted husks are left as long-forgotten reminders of what once was. Here a Blue-Gray Tanager calmly perches upon the Sensor Array Housing of unit 013. #teamneversleeps
Preliminary sketch for #inktober2018 day 2! I’m behind because I forgot my pens at work yesterday (and didn’t notice until it was too late!), so I’ll be making up for it. You can’t really tell much from this pic, but it’ll make sense soon. #teamneversleeps
Just found out it’s National Boyfriend Day.. whoop whoop. I’d like to give a shout out to my handsome man. Couldn’t be any more prouder to be your Hyna💙. Your such a perfect partner and Best friend. Who needs 🌹🌹’s when you have @voodooflowers 🌺🌸🌼’s #crimepartner🔫 #mybfishotterthanyours #hesamachine #teamneversleeps #poweredbybeer #loveyoutothemoonandback🌝 #rideordie #justus #myeverything❤️ #iswearhehassuperpowers #letsfuckshitup #tilthewheelsfalloff #mooneyesopenhouse2018 #latinavamp #theexocist #iwearinkforthebothofus
Finally finished my first piece for #inktober2018! She’s the lead guitarist of a Poison-only cover band named Poisonous, and her butt is possessed by an evil but playful entity. It started out much smaller (an ass with a hat on it haha 😅), but turned into an opportunity to flex some dynamic muscles - something I don’t do often enough. Now I just gotta keep pushing myself for the rest of the month! Also, mental note: add “guitars” to the list of things I never ever want to draw again. #teamneversleeps
Here’s my submission for day one of #inktober2018. Second guessing the pose on this one 😅. Though, thanks to some late night inspirationals with the homey @jvnqo, I decided to use this month long challenge as a way to really push myself out of my comfort zone! Here I’m focusing on dynamic posing and unorthodox anatomy. (btw, drawing people upside down is hard lol) #teamneversleeps
Work in progress of #Bowsette! I’ve been slowly adding chip damage on this one in between other illustration work. Gonna try to finish inking her some more before kickin’ off #inktober! #teamneversleeps
Here’s the last of #TheYikesTour pieces for @str33tkitten! I gotta say, this one went through the most iterations. All of them were SOLID but not what we were going for, but who knows @dumbfoundead, maybe for next time?! 🤔 #teamneversleeps
I’ve posted another view of this one before, but here’s one of the last pieces @str33tkitten snagged for #TheYikesTour. She came up with the idea for this one, and I put my spin on it. This one’s for @zomanno! #teamneversleeps
“Da Lab.” | My home away from home at home. Sometimes I lose my way, but I always manage to find my way back. #teamneversleeps
Another of the sticker commissions for @str33tkitten earlier this year as part of four designs for #TheYikesTour. This one is for @rekstizzy! Rek is REALLY into frogs and the color green, so I drew inspiration from that for this #FROGCORE piece. Reppin’ Queens, NY! #teamneversleeps
I fell in love with her soul, and she let me into her life and perfect little family. She can be a handful sometimes, but so can all of us! I love that she always tries to see the good in everyone and does her best to help those around her. She’s been my # 1 fan since day one, and has never lost faith in me (even when I lost faith in myself or do dumb shit lol). I especially love these pictures because they capture her spirit - she’s like a majestic wild mare in the sunlight, and I get to spend the rest of my life with her. I’ve never had a love like this! Thank you for being you @klynn_rae. #teamneversleeps
I finished this sticker commission for @str33tkitten earlier this year as part of four designs for #TheYikesTour. I was super happy with how this one for @officialyox turned out. Heavily influenced by their love of food, yum. “Got rice, b🤭tch?!” Shout out again to @str33tkitten for not only being super diligent about paying respect correctly to their culture (even down to the color of the sauces used in Korean cuisine!), but for also putting me on to some dope music. @yox_silver @yox_jl this girl goes hard for y’all! #teamneversleeps
This last week has been just crazy with work, art, school days and appointments - but it was all worth it the second I finally saw this, and I would do it all over again! I’m so thankful, and happy and excited! 🙏🏽 I couldn’t have asked for more: a perfectly healthy bean with a strong heartbeat. New addition to #teamneversleeps!
Back at it again - forever burning the midnight oil. Just trying to be as real as I can, master my craft, share my work, and spread any of the knowledge I’ve picked up along the way! 🙏🏽 Thank you all for the love. #teamneversleeps
“Wish You Were Here.” | Greetings from SpongeBob’s distant cousin from New Kelp City! (Rockin’ the latest in Supreem and Goochie fashion.) #teamneversleeps
“Cash Rules Everything Around Me, C.R.E.A.M. Get the money, dolla, dolla bill, y’all.” | Notice something different about this Washington? I might have to do this to every $1 bill I see from now on! 😂 #teamneversleeps #noexcuses
I’m not a kid anymore, but I’ll still tear up some letter magnets! | Every now and then you just have to “let go” a little and feed your inner creative soul. It does the body good! #teamneversleeps #noexcuses
Oi, oi, oi! Punk stijl! | Sketched while at work. 🤫 Shhhhhhhh. #teamneversleeps #noexcuses
Cat’s out of the bag! | Took this shot as I looked down to my lap at my guardian cat Aloy. The lighting was too good. You can’t see it here but she’s buff af. She’s super sweet though! 😸 #teamneversleeps #noexcuses
Trying my hand at a new way to display my art! | The original illustration for the Year II collaboration project with @emotional.jp. Based on the same character from Year I, we incorporated another character and a backstory of two girls separated by class but destined to fight for love. I tried to capture that with this design: their struggle is ongoing, like the balance of Ying & Yang. As they reach for each other, the logo would go between them to further accentuate their forced separation. I wasn’t even sure if it could be printed that way, but @emotional.jp and @superwowfactory are a force to be reckoned with! I’m really proud of this one! #teamneversleeps #noexcuses
Quick little illustration from today. Dedicated to my real one @klynn_rae. #teamneversleeps #noexcuses
Always excising inner demons. | Tongue, or no tongue? 😋 #teamneversleeps #noexcuses
A while back I worked on another awesome project with @emotional.jp, this time for the release of his year 2 anniversary. It was an honor working with him for the year 1 release so naturally I was all in for another! I had been struggling with art, amongst other things, earlier this year and this project couldn’t have come at a better time. It pulled me out of a darkness and resparked my imagination. | This is a reveal teaser I made for it. I’ve never forayed into filmed content, but I gratefully borrowed @mr_czar’s camera (thanks a million, my dude!) and tried my hardest to capture what I saw in my head. Definitely a learning experience, but I think I held my own. | Go show@emotional.jp some love if you can, he’s a class dude! | Song is “Leave” by @postmalone. #teamneversleeps #noexcuses
Some closer details from the previous post. I’m trying something different with these lines, as a lot more texture and shapes will be added in the color stage. Gonna channel some #interstella5555 vibes! | Also, had to take a page outta @mr_crane_aka_c3 and add an extra piece of paper because I ran out of space 😩 #teamneversleeps
Working on a dope 🔥🔥🔥 project for the homey @hairo_g! It’s been a long time coming, but it’ll be worth the wait. | Yes, those are indeed the @supremenewyork Air Uptempos 96’s on the feet. Painstakingly. Recreated. #teamneversleeps #noexcuses
I didn’t finish this in time for yesterday, but still wanted to share it out of respect. #neverforget
