I am Berry Villegas. I illustrate. I design. I create stuff. I am an artist. I have a blog. This is my blog. Just trying to sort out the random thoughts in my head. If you just want to see my work, click on the link above. If you want to buy stuff, there's a link for that too. Enjoy.
THE DEAD WILL HAVE THEIR DAY. This was my submission for the Dia de los Muertos Art Show at the CityArts Factory. I got a little experimental this time around - it’s two pieces of etched glass floating over an abstract acrylic piece in a shadow box frame. I had alot of fun playing around with this thing. Thanks once again to all my awesome family and friends that came out to support the arts. Now, on to the next project. I literally already have things lined up just waiting to get started - gotta go!
DAY OF THE DEAD SHOW. Once again, there was a beautiful array of art displayed at the Dia de los Muertos Art Show at The CityArts Factory in Downtown Orlando. If you missed the opening tonight, it’ll be up all month.
MONSTER FACTORY. If you’re in Orlando tonight, stop by The Downtown CityArts Factory for their Annual Dia De Los Muertos Art Show and Block Party. It’s always a spooky good time. I did something really different this year for my piece - hope to see you out there!
IT’S GOTTA BE THE HAIR. The NBA season is almost here and if you’re a Magic fanatic like me, then you’ve gotta to be super-excited about this kid. Elfrid Payton - mark my words - is going to turn heads this year. Steal of the draft. Way to go Henny. Go Magic.
SOCKS. If you’ve been following my blog recently, then you’re probably aware of the Penny Hardaway illo I did for the No Easy Buckets Art Show in Memphis last month. Well, because of that piece, I was asked by some folks with The Memphis Grizzlies if I would do a companion piece of another Treadwell High School grad turned NBA star, Elliot Perry. I gladly agreed. The artwork is being used for a local Community Center renovation in Memphis - I’m told the art will be displayed in late October, so hopefully I’ll have some pics to share soon. Fingers crossed that the actual Penny Hardaway and Elliot Perry will get a good look at my tributes to their legendary hoops status. Stay tuned.
