Raul Velazquez was born under the tropical sun in the land of salsa music and ropa vieja. After leaving Havana, Cuba, his family emigrated to Madrid, and eventually settled in Miami. His life changed when he was gifted a bulk pack of error variant comic books. Raul's deep passion for storytelling and illustration grew as he read and re-read the misprinted adventures of the Fantastic Four, Teen Titans, and Superman. After a career in advertising, he has returned to his original love. You can find him at his desk crafting and illustrating stories, or mashing up flavors in the kitchen.
