Hey people, so I recently took part in this fundraiser for the NY organization Urban Arts Partnership. They had partnered with a shoe company, Canvas Shoes and had hella famous people make shoes. People like Cee-Lo, Lee Quinones, Mariah Carey, etc. Since the arts org works with youth they contacted the high school I work in and got some of my students to design some shoes. They threw me in there for kicks and I made this. I named her "La Dina". You could see the shoe as they looked before and when I finished them. Hopefully someone put some money down to help out that organization and bought my dino.

New Large Illustration

Hello friends, it has been a minute since my last post. I am more active on my Instagram account, you can find me by my name Ben Rojas. Look me up and check out my images. 

Other than that waste of time app, I am slowly working on some new stuff and some stuff I haven't finished. The new stuff is on some dark red paper, all pencil and charcoal. Based on the native homie Red Dawn from Arizona. The whole piece is pretty large, 40 x 26 inches. A costly frame would have to bought when I plan to show this piece. I have another sheet of this paper, so I'm going to illustrate a partner to this one. Let me know what you think.
