Luis' Art Gallery

Thanks for visiting my art gallery page. Nothing pleases an artist more than people staring aimlessly at their artwork. This is the place where I will be posting some of my personal illustrations, most of which were done during my college days studying fine arts. The medium I use varies (depending on the mood), but colored and charcoal pencils on illustration paper dominated most of the pieces. When time permits, I'll eventually post other plates I've done in scratchboard, oils, and acrylics.
