Everyone can use a helping hand from time to time and Ricardo Solis isn't afraid to admit it. Instead of finishing his stunning sketches of animals himself, he employs little elven helpers to do the brunt of the work by coloring them in. Yet they don't do so in the typical manner. In place of coloring pencils and paint, Ricardo Solis depicts them using all sorts of strange materials from black ribbon for zebra stripes and chocolate chips for a dog's fur.
Clever, creative and entertaining, Ricardo Solis is a modern day shoemaker. Based in Guadalajara, Mexico, Ricardo Solis demonstrates an adorable sense of humor that is bound to find an audience in many different circles from kids to adults.
