In honor of my late uncle and mentor, Efrain Frencci Rivera, I am currently sneaking his lifelong character, Ralfy Roach, into a commission piece I’m working on. Uncle Frencci used to hide Ralfy in a lot of his artwork, hence my penchant for hiding words and images in a bulk of my work.
I still have this 24 year old article on my uncles and their comic book. Shortly after this was published, they asked me to join their team. I was only 15. I had the honor of inking and lettering their comic books and working closely with my uncles, especially Frencci. This experience gave me hope for my future and forever influenced me and my art. Rest in peace Efrain Frencci Rivera, Feb 5th 1963 - Feb 26th 2014. You are loved and missed.
