Description I am going to enjoy life in Paris, I know. It is so human and there is something noble in the city It is a real city, old and fine and life plays in it for everybody to see. -Katherine Mansfield
Roderick A. Perez, Chicago Member Since December 2007 Artist Statement I took up the pencil at the age of nine and began my first sketch with "Beetle Bailey" & "Garfield" (and as any doodler knows they're not easy to duplicate). I haven't stopped creating ever since. To define my work in a nutshell, I'd have to say, it is an exploration of different styles and mediums. My creativity cannot be limited to a sketch pad, but it has always been my greatest foundation.
