Mauro Balcazar (MrMauro) started drawing professionally in 2011 with his debut piece inspired by the film “The Last Dragon.” Since then, Mauro has fallen in love with illustrating art inspired by pop culture. Currently, his work can been seen on io9.com and on various audiobook covers for R.L Stine (Thriller Chiller Theater), Matthew Laube (Ancient Awakening), and Andrew Lang (Golden Hood, Cinderella).
Shades is his 1st published art book inspired by his favorite pop culture characters in history! Mauro currently resides in NJ and can be found drawing daily until the crack of dawn. (Send help.)
