Note
I'm not a mystery man, so I've decided to illustrate this post with the below image that is a poster to motion picture masterpiece movie "Eyes wide shut" by American director Stanley Kubrick, that is one of the best movies ever made and that is filled with mysteries in it regarding life and who we as human beings are on it.

Many thanks to all international artists who believe and support this ongoing project started and organized by myself in 2016 with their artworks being exhibited in worldwide exhibitions since 2016 and also in published books based on it because without your excellent art skills and trust this project wouldn't be possible. 
Special thanks to my youngest niece Leticia that gives me all the strength and energy in this world and to Gary Groth that's the president of Fantagraphics books publishing company for more than 40 years and that publishes and distribute hundreds of books created by some of the best international artists all over the world.
