Dennis started drawing at the age of four, in Somerville, NJ. His father, a Colombian-American immigrant saw his son’s talent and immediately entered him in local contests. Dennis was happy to see his father so proud of him. Having grown up with Spanish as his first language in a predominantly white neighborhood, art was an ice breaker in his early days of education. In pre-school, instead of recess; Dennis preferred to fill post-it pads with sequential illustrations, staying in with his teacher so that she may add captions. Dennis didn’t know how to write yet and found this special time with his teacher very rewarding. Though this created a pattern of social avoidance, it’d eventually pay, flourishing in his very own “Doodle World”. Dennis very much enjoyed reading his older sisters Archie comics and in the 4th grade, he was thrilled to be collaborating with classmates in making their own comics called “Dangerous David”. Later he would be creating comics for his high school newspaper. In 2008, Dennis entered Tampa Bay’s Art Festival and won 1st Place in the field of character concept design. Later, Romero received his Bachelor’s in Fine Arts (Computer Animation Major) from IADT in 2009.

My client for this project was Roxanne B. We’d met at Disney on the Boardwalk where she’d purchased a caricature from me. I’d mentioned that I take commissions online as well. For Father’s Day, Roxanne wanted to gift this photo as a digital painting without the Ryder truck that is seen in there in front of the lighthouse. She’d sent me the following picture as well to help me see the structure without the truck.

While I could’ve imposed the boys in front of this picture, I felt the sky was too foreboding for the atmosphere of a light family painting. Instead I chose the following picture of a more inviting sky.

From these three pictures, I used my Photoshop skills to come up with this finished piece and had it printed on canvas.

Said Roxanne,” It looks awesome! Thanks so much! “
