Title: "Mirame" ("Look at Me") 11x14 with Mat 




In "Mirame," the essence of Puerto Rican identity and strength is encapsulated in the arresting gaze of the central figure. This pen illustration portrays a Puerto Rican man with a commanding presence, his intense eyes inviting the viewer to delve into the depths of his soul.


The focal point of the artwork is the man's penetrating stare, which exudes confidence, wisdom, and a hint of mystery. His long, curly hair cascades around his shoulders, framing a face adorned with a magnificent beard and mustache. Each stroke of the pen captures the intricate details of his features, from the furrowed brow to the curve of his lips, imbuing the portrait with a sense of realism and depth.


Adorning his neck are two powerful symbols of Puerto Rican heritage: the Taino Sun and Coqui. These intricately crafted necklaces serve as a tangible connection to the island's indigenous roots, paying homage to the resilience and spirit of the Taíno people.


In the background, subtle hints of Puerto Rico's natural beauty emerge, adding depth and context to the composition. The interplay of light and shadow accentuates the contours of the man's face and necklaces, drawing attention to their significance within the narrative of the artwork.


"Mirame" is more than just a portrait; it is a reflection of Puerto Rican pride, resilience, and cultural heritage. Through the artist's skillful rendering and attention to detail, the piece captures the essence of a people whose spirit cannot be dimmed, inviting viewers to gaze upon the strength and beauty of Puerto Rican identity.
