My experience as this year's Borderlands' artist has been very gratifying. I been able to recreate the way many of our past local figures lived, and I have learned a lot of the history of our border region in the process.
To produce the right illustration is not easy; I have to explore the many libraries, bookstores and landmarks around the city to make my work look as authentic as possible. Thanks to the staff who worked hard to make this year's issue possible and to those people who supported me.
When I became the photographer for Borderlands, I had no idea that I would learn so much about El Paso's history. I have seen what El Paso looked like in the past from pictures in the archives in the Downtown El Paso Public Library, and I can see the way El Paso changed and grew. There is still so much to learn about this city and the people who started it all. I think my next job will be tour guide!
