heart bearAbout Tomás

As the creative director of my own sweet here now and the SweetHereNow, I am ready to play, explore, organize and create. Even though I have always been an artist, lately I haven't been as creative as I would like.

As an artist, I mainly specialize in pen & ink and had sold my art at art fairs and in several galleries around Chicago in the early 1990s. Now, I am adding ideas and designs to my portfolio. I have several concepts that I work within including or DaDs as I call them, Sí Animals, and more.

About his Father

Born in 1937, my father trained as an architect before venturing into art. Regrettably, he was recently diagnosed with severe dementia.

I now have all his artwork and it is an impressive collection that spans decades. It is in need of organization and exposure. If there is anything that he should be remembered by other than being family, it is by his amazing work that consumed so much of his life.

He may have been a talented artist but he never sold more than a few pieces. I haven’t figured out exactly what I am going to do with all of his work but to forget it or lock it away seems beyond foolish. I might as well burn it. Well Dad, it is now time to do something with your work.

I do believe that his work would look incredible in a gallery. If anyone out there can help me with this in Portland, OR or San Francisco (my sister lives there) please reach out at or (503) 482-2047.

You may view his work at the Sprysky section of this site. This is SkyScooters GVB 2726 an 18x24 inch marvel. The original is hanging in my bedroom.
