Beto Garza
Hello! My name is Beto Garza also known as "Helbetico". I'm from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon ,Mexico. I've always loved drawing, since I was a kid when I was always doodling with crayons all over my house walls with my brother. Now it is my line of work professionally, but for me drawing has been more than just a profession since I can always express myself about anything I want and be fully satisfied. My inspiration has and will always be cartoons, comic books and video games.
