Find A New Hero Series: Erwin Haya

Featuring lots of beautiful ladies and just gorgeous details that make each piece, even the simple ones, amazing. Check out what will be he has in store for you when you get there and much more.

Where do you find inspiration for your work?

A lot of my work draws inspiration from street art and illustration design. Growing up, I immersed myself in graffiti culture. I've always been fascinated by the shear audacity in use of bold colors and raw subject matter. Later, I began heavily studying the illustration and design work of the late 19th and early 20th century. It still amazes me how artists at the time were able to capture the level of intricate detail without the aid of a computer.

What is your favorite work you have done?

One of my favorite pieces of work I've done is a piece entitled "Analog Groove." Designed for T-shirts and prints, it was my attempt to fuse together urban aesthetics with traditional art nouveau. 
Simply amazing, don't you think?

What current work are you most excited about?

I am most excited about an alphabet book I am currently putting together. For each letter I've illustrated a corresponding hairstyle in the shape of that letter. 

What is one thing you would like to pursue if you had additional free time?

If I had more free time I would like to create a graphic novel. There are dozens of stories floating around in my head.

What do you typically offer at your booth at SDCC? Will there be any exclusive items?

I typically offer prints and sketchbooks/artbooks at my booth. This years exclusive will be my alphabet book entitled "H is for Hair." It will be a limited run book, signed and numbered. 

Simply stunning!

What other uses have people found for your designs?

A few fans have honored me by tattooing some of my artwork.

What is your favorite autograph or collectible you’ve picked up at a convention?

My favorite collectible is an Alex Ross limited and signed reproduction of his Batman/Superman painting on canvas. It was a wedding anniversary gift my wife picked up at a convention a few years ago.

What is the best SDCC or convention moment you have had?

Having exhibited at SDCC for more then 10 years now, I've been able to witness fans on their own journeys in life. I've even witnessed couples marry, have children, and see their families grow year by year. It's been both an honor and a blessing.
