Consider this photo the next time you doubt achieving your goals.

Humble beginnings can sometimes have us losing faith. With extreme lows and amazing highs.
Life of an entrepreneur is damn hard, but so well worth it to see your dreams become a reality.

We are 11 days away from hitting our goal. (On Kickstarter)

Here’s a bit of an update for those who do not follow me on social media.

Since this campaign has started, I wanted to do something to help push the funding along.
I decided to take it to the streets.

I took some of the books that have written and also some of my art, I grabbed a folding table and went out there to sell my products.

I’m still going out to selling no matter how hot it may get outside

I tell you all this, because there are some misconceptions that people stay home waiting for their campaign to win.

I am doing my part. This a life long goal and one I refuse to give up on.

To those of you who have pledged, I can not thank you enough
For those of you that shared my links. Thank you as well.
Everything helps.

I know what it will take to make this happen. I will hustle and grind till my last day!

To be honest…
I love every second of it.
Exhausted or not, this project pulls me and leads me.

So please know that we are in this together and you can help it all become a reality.

Love and Unity

Silver Angel Press

Silver Angel Press is an independent comic book and toy company, owned and operated by Carlos (Los) Espada.

Coming from a family of professional wrestlers and entertainers (his father and uncle we’re a masked Luchador’s called The Silver Angels), Carlos learned two very important things from his father: “The more you know, the more you earn” and “never do things half way.” To this day, those inspirational words are the fuel that pushes Los to take on every task with passion and intensity, losing himself in the creative flow of any project he’s involved in.

His work can be seen in product lines such as Star Wars, Star Trek, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Eminem, Alice Cooper, and Dark Angel, all of which he helped develop while he was the Art Director and Shop Manager at Art Asylum Toys.

As much as Carlos loves toys, his creative mastery equally translates over to his love for music and performing, which led him to start a successful tribute band celebrating rock legends, KISS. Of course, he wasn’t satisfied with having just another ‘tribute band’, so he painstakingly created a plan that would make the band stand out from all the others. The hard work paid off as the band gained enough notoriety that Carlos would go on to work with his boyhood idol Gene Simmons, as well as Silvertone guitars in promoting their Paul Stanley signature line of guitars. The band performed globally and was featured on the likes of VH1, CNN and more, including the filming of a pilot for VH1 entitled MOCK ROCK.

Using his knowledge of classic wrestling (and his life as a wrestler) Los was able to land an acting role as a regular in “Wrestling with Joeylicious”. Not surprisingly, he played multiple characters in the series, his main character being a Cuban guerilla fighter named “Un Granada”.

Carlos has penned and illustrated several books with fellow artists in his mission to inspire others, He has released books based on his motivational quotes titled Los Quotes Vol.1.

When love dies, a short story about postpartum depression. Super Group Go! is a child friendly comic mixing action and adventure with a moral to each story. And lastly, Rock N Roll Brat And The Kids is a children’s book created to encourage children to use their imagination to have fun.

When asked how he manages to squeeze so much creativity into his life, Los responds:

“I work day and night on branding and developing everything from toys, music, TV and live shows. I love what I do, and no matter the job, I always give it my all. I believe in the philosophy of hard work on every level and have been called a ‘creative force’ by those I’ve worked with. As great of a compliment as that is, I have to give credit to the creative minds around me (and the greats who came before me), I feed off their energy which in turn pushes me get better, to dig deeper, and to stay creative.”
