Hi, I'm Hector, and I'm a Phoenix, Arizona, transplant. As an artist and graphic designer, there's a lot of visual inspiration to be found here in the desert Southwest. What else inspires me? Mid-century Modern architecture and design, American and Mexican pop culture, a good surf or rockabilly beat, classic car shows, science fiction, road trips, and scenic hikes.
Why Grasshopper Hill?
