Moonbeam Honesty is another of Romeo’s housemates. She is a very passionate woman, who thinks society should be fair and equal and is ready to fight and tell everyone about the unfairness we suffer today. She also happens to do many of those protests chained to doors and sometimes even without clothes.
If you are one of my Patreon, you already know the misadventures of Romeo during his first day of College. However, I’ve also shown you art of a bunch of other people who share the world with him, and it’ time to know HOW he meet them, in a completely new Gradients serialization, that will start the first week of December on Tapas.
Now, this doesn’t mean that the Patreon strips will stop. They will continue as always, and will follow Romeo and the gang between the pages of the Tapas serialization.
The first week will have daily updates from Monday to Friday, and after that, you can follow Gradients every Tuesday.

The Usual Suspects
In every story, there’s that one character who enjoys getting in trouble and getting everyone else in trouble. The troublemakers, so to speak. Obviously, my stories are not the exception.
I made this illustration, with the most mischievous of my characters from my stories for a new banner in my patreon and facebook page, but of course, I just had to make them full body to share them with you all.
Moonlight Honesty is from Gradients, which is currently a Patreon-exclusive strip and you get the whole archive for just $1.00 USD a month. Updates on Fridays.
Dew is from Dream Keeper Robin, that you can read for free at Tapas (Link on the main menu), or buy at my store in physical form. Updates on Mondays.
Phoenix is from Traveling Seers, that you can read at Tapas (link on the main menu). Updates on Wednesdays.
Raziel is from Devil in Disguse. More about him to come out soon 😉
Winchester Mansion is, of course, from my Haunted House series, that you may have seen here.
And finally Moira is from my very first professional comic, I.Doll. But hers is a story for another time.
I’ve talked about Gradients (previously Abre Una Ventana), very recently. Just when I was announcing the beginning of the strips on Patreon, I made a series of most of the main cast for Instagram, that I am sharing here again.
Aria, Henry, Moonbeam Honesty, Luisa, René, Romeo, and Xolotl look a bit different when I make them in traditional techniques, but they’re still my beloved kids.
Around 15 years ago, I was called by my editor at Vanguardia Editores, Mr. Arnulfo Flores (R.I.P.) to tell me about a new magazine he was launching. The magazine, Saga Shojo, was a huge risk for mexican market: one that would be run by women, with only stories by women and only women collaborators. And he wanted me to be the editor, and to make a story “like Friends”. I was all up for editing, but there was a small problem… I hated Friends.
There were other problems (such as the resistance to more LGBT+ friendly stories from both audience and editing staff), but I created Abre una Ventana (Open a Window. Long story that has to do with my love for musicals), and la Saga Shojo had the love of the readers for about 10 issues. (Well, less according to sale numbers, but due to mr. Flores’s faith and stubborness, we lasted 10 issues). And while the others stories closed, I left mine open ended because I hadn’t finished with the characters.
In 2006, I tried to relaunch it with the Oubilette magazine. But due to time, and other situations, I couldn’t get past issue 2.
Still, I didn’t forget Romeo and the gang. And so now I can tell you all that I have written the whole story (22 chapters of 16 pages each, more or less) , and while I am drawing it, I am doing small strips with the characters, that am posting in Patreon, once a week. First strip of the month is free for all, the other three are for Patreons starting at $1.00 USD.
So, I hope you all like it, and trust me, you will be seeing more of the gang around here too.
And of course, I hope you follow me in Patreon too! 😀
