My name is Mando Padilla and I'm a graphic/web designer for a snorkeling/military-diving company by day. I'm also an artist, poet and musician.

My style of art is icon/logo inspired. I like each character to create a memorable impact with bold lines and bright colors. Above is my sketch of a seahorse with my normal "spiral eye". The black-oil-tear represents the sadness of pollution. It was sketched on black paper with woodless color pencil.
I'm happy to contribute to your oilspill cause. The seahorse was inspired by a trip that I took to the Legoland aquarium. While their seahorses are safe, many out in the wild are not.
