While paying for my groceries yesterday (and waiting patiently for the person in front of me with 20 cases of Coke), I started flipping through magazines and I was pleasantly surprised to see my 2-page illustration spread in Latina magazine.
Even after 25 years in the business, opening a national magazine and seeing my drawings there still doesn’t get old. Knowing that I do what I’ve wanted to do since I was 5 years old puts a proud smile on my face. Not bad for someone who grew up in a small town in Puerto Rico!
For this particular issue of Latina, I had to draw a few celebrities for an Emmy Award Quiz spread. The celebrities are John Leguizamo, America Ferrara showing off her Emmy to Eva Longoria (3 nominations but has never won!), Ricky Ricardo, and my favorite Sophia Vergara, getting all glammed up (with signature Marrero wasp-waist!) 🙂
