Char has been responsible for most of these blogs. She's the writer, not me, but I wanted to try out this blogging thing, so here goes! --Gus

Wow. The past month has been amazing for me. I'm excited to see what unveils from the awesome things that are heading my way. If you hadn't heard, I was accepted by the Art Fusion Gallery in the Design District of Miami. A big thanks to William Braemer and the jury for an amazing opportunity. I can't wait to get my name and my art out there. There are details to come regarding a summer exhibition starting this July.

On June 4th I am going to participate in an event in Doral called FAME. I join other up and coming artists in fashion, music, and visual arts for Miami exposure. Visit the Facebook fan page for the invite and more information. got a much needed makeover. Ricky Pierson, a friend from high school in Nicaragua and the man behind the new GusColors website, did such an amazing job. I am getting great feedback.

Most of all, I want to thank my family and close friends for all of their support. With them, I'm encouraged to go beyond the horizon and explore my passion. To Char, my Maganda Princesa: you have been so amazing and supporting. Your positivity and your love for me and my work, drives me. I'd honestly be lost without you. To my Mom: Gracias viejita por todo su carino y apoyo. And to my friends, we'll celebrate later!

I have been truly blessed! I have a feeling that 2010 will be the year.
