Hi! I'm Pinguino, and I do all sorts of random things. At the core though, I'm an artist and adventurer. I travel around the world eating weird things. Hacker and comic book communities are my home. I also host highly creative parties and art shows. I do both digital and traditional illustration, photography, and event production.

Your contribution to Patreon helps me do more creative projects, and take on less boring freelance web work! Really, you're fueling me with enough energy drinks to make everything happen!

You'll get previews and behind-the-scenes sketches and storytime about adventures! My interests are diverse, everything from comics and food to drawing in VR and blinky glowy things.

Here a few of my upcoming projects:

I throw a big free themed party every year called NinjaPenguin in Los Angeles! Your support helps make interactive art happen for the party. 

Digital Art
I do a lot of pieces in Photoshop, Illustrator, and Pablodraw, usually event-related or for art shows. I'm also in an ansi art group called Fuel that releases every two months.

The next book I'm working on is Mouth Full of Minnows, written by Mike Wellman. It's a VR story that I'm doing character design and illustration on. I also want to do some slice-of-life comics about my various adventures. I also have two minicomics in the works with Michael Lim.

Substandard Comic:
24 Hr Comic:

Taste Safari
This started out as a youtube idea to do a video series about my food experiments. It's mostly just an instagram right now:

Geek Photography
I have over 20 years experience in the geek photography space, both as a red carpet photographer and cosplay photographer. My photos have been featured on CBR, Make Magazine, Bleeding Cool, OC Weekly, Marvel Comics, Playboy, and Anime News Network.

Thanks for your support!
