Hi, I’m Chris.
I’m a Cuban-American illustrator and WordPress developer based in Ann-Arbor. ‘Rodrigweez’ is a ridiculous pronunciation of my very common last name by a high school teacher whose education clearly didn’t include Spanish.
I was born and mostly grew up in Washington, DC (with an eight year interlude in Garland, TX during middle and high school) where I graduated from Howard University with a BFA. I worked as a web designer and animator in LA before heading to Japan for three years to teach English in a tiny mountain town.
Since then, I’ve been chased by wild monkeys on a bike trail, survived a number of triathlons and road races, got married and started a family, taught natural childbirth classes, and watched Into the Spiderverse at least eight times in the theatre.
My first kid is super into dragons and refuses to enjoy anything else I draw for her. I was kinda hoping my second kid would be into something cool like tigers, but nah. He’s all #Dragonz4Lyfe, too. So here I am, drawing dragons all the time, mostly cooking.
In my free time, I like rollerskating, archery and playing ukulele. I cook (and eat) a lot and I love good stories, especially movies, books, comics, music, and games played with a table of friends.
