Before I came to the United States to pursue my dream of becoming a comic book artist, I was inspired by the American cowboy westerns. Few know that I actually began working in the art department of an appliance store drawing pictures of the products the store would be selling.  Back then, they used drawings instead of the nice photographs they use now for advertisements.

My first big break came when I was approached to work on Billy The Kid for Charlton comics.  I remember how excited I was. Not only to be working on real comics, but to be able to work on one of the most iconic American Westerns. This was truly a dream to me. I remember coming home from the department and staying up late into the night with my wife Mabel working on the pages. This was the beginning of my long career in comic art. After working on Billy The Kid, I also was fortunate enough to work on great American Westerns such as the Lone Ranger, Geronimo Jones and Judge Colt.

Now, I am extremely excited to pay homage to those great westerns by releasing my first NFT art focused on the American Cowboy and the Argentinian Gaucho on Nifty Gateway on April 27, 2021.

The Cowboys – Packs

“The Cowboys – Packs” will be my first collection of Western/Cowboys themed art to be released as NFTs. The pieces focus on both the American cowboy and the Argentinian gaucho to pay homage to both of my homes. The packs will be editions of 40 and will be priced at $999 to encourage healthy secondary market activity for collectors who win an edition of the packs.

The Cowboys – Classic Editions

Classic editions of The Cowboys pieces will also be offered as much more limited editions (5 and 10). These will be released in Silent Auction format. Classic editions are the digitized version of the inked art that I draw on paper before working with a colorist to give them an added element.
