Hey folks! Here's a sneek preview of whats on my drawing board right now. Its a an illustration for a page for a children's book I am doing as an ebook for the ipad and other mobile devises. Its one of 15 screen pages. The book is called Pie-rits by Julia Dweck. Gotta another one lined up to do right after. Waddayathink?

Illustration On Skateboard Deck For Charity

Here is something on the board at Fian Arroyo Illustration...right now. Donating my illustration services to fight cancer (my mother died from its personal) to Grind For Life an organization that raises money through skateboarding events and an online shop to help people with cancer...great organization. This is a sketch in progress for a skateboard deck. Buy a deck and help kick cancers ass!!!!

I'll post final art when it is completed.


News update for

Been really busy the last few months working on projects that I can't post artwork up yet. One is an art licensing project involving creating character designs and mascot development for a line of children's supplements. They are fantasy characters like a knight, dragon, wizard etc. that will be on the product labels and merchandising. Should be 12-13 characters in all...a super fun project and great client to work with! I will give out more updates and art work sneek peeks (if possible) later as the project progresses. Another art licensing/character development opportunity is with a line of fantasy/sci-fi characters that were created for a trading card strategy game a few years back. My partners, on this business venture, and I are in negotiations right now with a toy/game company working out the details. If all goes well, we will be at Toyfair in Februrary 2012 showcasing the new game. Check out the second to the last image on the mascots portfolio to see some of the characters in the game.

In the meantime, check out the artwork I did not too long ago for a skateboard deck. A real fun piece to do in Adobe Illustrator. Still waiting for my additional samples to come in...don't really want to ride and trash a sample if I don't have one as a backup to use as a wall hanger.

Now back to the drawing board...
