With San Diego Comic-Con and WonderCon not happening in 2020, it’s more important now than ever to support artists to help them make up for lost funds. And one of our favorite artists is, no surprise here, Patrick Ballesteros.
Ballesteros is launching a new art series this week called “My QuaranTeam”, featuring friends and family in an age of social distancing — but still with his adorable, childlike style. The series is inspired by and dedicated to Ballesteros’ own network of friends and family, he explained, and began “as art therapy to help relieve my anxiety while documenting the world we live in right now. However, as I started creating more images, they allowed me to discover a little joy each day. I hope this series does the same for you as you discover and share joy with your own QuaranTeam.”
The five new art prints are 4″x10″ each, on fine art linen paper, and will retail for $15 each with 20% of proceeds going towards charities that feed and protect our frontline workers. They will launch on Friday, April 24 at 10AM (along with some back-in-stock items) on his website.
Here’s a look at the new My QuaranTeam series:
