Harold Chacon Rivas is a Guatemalan illustrator. Harold loved art since he was a child, and learned how to use a pencil. He started to illustrate at 5 years ago and has not stopped since then. As his motto says “I Draw, therefore I am“.
Harold’s illustrations are usually inspired by pop culture, dreams, and things that surrounds him. Sometimes he just start drawing intuitively by following his feelings and insticts, some other times he even sketches nonsense. He loves to express himself through art than words.
