Most unfrightening
The charming falls
And glitter shawls

The slumbering sun
Beneath dim night
The cumberbun
Of town alight
Where patriots
The rebel lurks
In freedom's ring
Of fireworks
"Fireworks" is the painting of the day because everyday,
I dream of monsters.
Poem & painting by Mando Padilla

The is the first painting that shows the profile of the IDOM mascot. This also marks the first where the mascot battles itself. The idea was more serious & hard lined than in the past but it still retains the colorful characteristics associated with my work. The poem is about those who bite the hand that feeds them.

Santa Hat 2010

I dream of monsters
Through visions and toys
I have a new monster
A baby boy

Mariachi 1 - The Guitar Player

Mariachi 1 :: The Guitar Player
For every string
I pluck and pick
With every string
I sing
- Mando Padilla

This painting is one in a series of four. I tested the strength of this art on apparel with the Zazzle store. These paintings were exciting to do. The backgrounds are colorful so I used minimal color on the character so that he could stand out. The original hangs in my house. It really brightens and opens up the room.

Mariachi 1 is the painting of the day because every day I Dream of Monsters.

Habbit the Rabbit

Sugar skulls' bone marrow
Licked clean
As slippery well
Walls, Vasoline

Pale is the beta carotene
The blinded
Wizard worms
Sight, pristine

Memoirs in shells
The hatched hells
Thy nighmare spells
Chromatic dwells

Remind thee, oh thine crimson posts
Which skeleton twas impaled most
For ivory hiccups amid the blood
The heards en mass alas, the flood

Thine ears do fail your majesty
For selfish self apostrophe
Or wish the will or wilt alone
And woe amongst the trite o' stone

That sudden thrust that which doth fear
A warning hence the endeth near
Tis when thou tarnished fake ammend
Drunkards - prolong hangovers end

The boredom
Of habits

Poem and drawing by Mando Padilla

("Habbit the Rabbit" is the drawing of the day because everyday, I dream of monsters..)

Eternal Charm

"Eternal Charm"
This charm of bows
For infinite wealth
The pride upon the bow
This charm you chose
In lifetime good health
Upon what is you sow

You are the luck
That treats you right
For, if you're stuck
Then look inside

This charm, it knows
What you will do
Tis what you chose
The charm of you

Will never fade
Yet, always shine
Self - what you've made
One of a kind

So feel the infinite bows fly
The zephyrs' warmth guide you in flight
Infinity - never too high
Your constellations -
Eternal night
