Life & Work with Angel Ortega
Today we’d like to introduce you to Angel Ortega.
Hi Angel, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I’ve always been interested in art and drawing. In school, I would redraw heavy metal album covers. I loved how drawing some dots & lines could bring a skull to life. To this day, I still love drawing skulls; it makes me happy.
