If you would like to help Al Rio's family, please look around here at the Art For Sale, or I will make you custom Prints or buy some items from the Zazzle store. If you would like to just donate, please do so by emailing me here. Al Rio's death has left a family without an income earner. Thanks in advance for your generosity.
Licensing is still available for some of Al Rio's original pieces. Please let me know if you're a publisher in need of some quality art. Email Terry.
From his last interview:
What gets you going?
What keeps me going? That's easy: I'm in love with drawing. It runs blood with drawing cells through my veins. My DNA is made of: sketch, pencils and inks, heeheehee. This defines me, drawing is the most important thing in my life. It is my superhero power. The super and details freak AL RIO. Thanks to my good God, my mission here on Earth is drawing.
I'll miss you forever Alvaro.
