Jesse Hernandez

My Inspiration

Dios Murcielago ('Bat God')This design represents the Bat as the messenger of the underworld or "Mictlan" to the Aztecs. Bats were known as Quimichpapalotl, or Butterfly mice, and held in very high regard. This bad boy demands his respect; diss him and you'll be passing on to the other-side with a quickness.
