Since it's a new year I decided to open up and let you all in. I never really open myself up ,So here it goes ..
The picture is where it starts... my brother Saul Beltran aka #SPRAY
one was my idol. I was like his shadow, I wanted to do eveything he did and I wanted to go everywhere he was. His art was clean and I wanted to do that, draw like him. He used to have me draw eyes over and over until I got it downn, etc. Then my junior year in high school he died in a car accident. Drawing wasn't the same anymore, I pretty much gave up on a lot of things in life at that point but the friends/fam I had wouldn't let me give up completely. So I continued to draw to for him since he couldn't anymore. I know my work is no where near his talent but every design I make, every line I draw is an extension of him because of what he taught me...I do it for Him, I do it for my Family, I do it for my Heritage, and I do it for Oakland!
