Skecth by Raymond Alonso
The creative adult is the child who survived
My name is Raymond Alonso, but the name I use for art is RayLove. I use this because as a kid I was always smiling so it was a nickname given to me. I’m 33 years old living in Miami, Florida and I am the son of Cuban immigrants. I have loved Art and the idea of creating something out of your mind since forever. Some of my earliest memories as a kid were drawing on boxes, walls, my own clothes, just about anything I could. I would create characters and stories and see it all play out in my mind. Honestly, I still do. My first love was comics, and then street art. I also loved cartoons and the one challenge for me was always Portraits. It scared me more than anything to try and recreate something from life, though I would love to conquer that fear.
I would love to learn more about Anatomy, Light and Shadow, and maybe some Perspective.
Drawing Academy looks so amazing, though its a bit intimidating because all the art shown is so beautiful and inspiring. I want to win so that I may take away a great learning experience, and honestly, people should vote for what calls to them and what they fall in love with seeing. Its never about competition for me, I believe we all win when we can all learn from each other.
