Baby Panda And His Popsicle
Pandas are unique animals. Easily identifiable, they fun to draw, paint or photograph. In this instance I decided to give it a little more personality by adding the hearts!.
About the Artist
Born in Peru, George Anthony Penon Cassallo arrived in the US at the age of seven. His introduction to art was via the illustrations in Marvel and DC comic books, and soon he was drawing superheroes and villains like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Doctor Doom, etc. He attended the High School of Art and Design but only recently returned to his roots as a visual artist. After having worked close to 20 years in the civil service industry, Mr. Cassallo's mental health began to decline. George has been diagnosed as having depression, anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder. A survivor of sexual, mental and physical abuse (when as a child), he advocates for stronger support for those in similar situations. He has studied at the Art Students League, Borough of Manhattan Community College and is a year away from attaining a BFA from Fashion Institute of Technology. Eventually, the goal is for him to complete his education and return to the work force.
