3. Adolfo Correa

Genaro DeSia Coppola is an amazing vector and flash artist with a style that is very much his own. If you think that his vector art is cool, than you are sure to love his flash work. His flash work takes his vector art to another level by adding color and movement to it.

6. Diego Diaz

Diego Diaz is a graphic design that comes from Guatemala City. Many of his designs seem to feature a reggae roots and natural style to them. I can only wonder if this has something to do with his surroundings and lifestyle.

It seems that Ricardo's first love is graffiti art, but his skills aren't limited to spray paint and concrete walls. He also excels at illustration and even some forms of photo manipulation.

David Galdamez comes to us from Guatemala City as well. He is one of those designers who is lucky enough to also have some traditional arty skills such as drawing and sketching. He does a great job at combining his two skills together to create unique pieces.

10. César Evangelista Bautista

Representing: Mexico Distrito Federal, Mexico

If you ask César Evangelista Bautista what it is he loves to do, he will tell you illustration. With such an awesome portfolio, it is easy to see that hes not lying. His character designs are hands down some of the coolest ones I have seen in a while.

11. ROAN

ROAN's illustration and digital manipulation work - often blended together beautifully - explores many different styles and themes.
