They are available at https://www.shopaew.com/ and https://www.prowrestlingtees.com/ below are the graphics featuring each wrestler from AEW Unrivaled Series 2 and their shirt.
Happy Saturday everyone,

Discover the sounds of matracas and cheering of the crowd, the smells of churros and sweat and all the sensations of night of lucha libre where dragonflies wrestle cats and the tecnicos do battle with rudos. The legend of Aguila Azul is the first in the classic lucha legends series. Ideal for children of all ages and anyone who loves the long tradition and rich pageantry of lucha libre.”
Also, yesterday (2-19-21) on my instagram story there a was cryptic message stating “Monday 2-22-21” with Monday, Monday by the Mamas and Papas playing. A key or I should say another highlight of my career will be happening and will make the announcement on Monday as the project will be released on worldwide scale.
Tomorrow at Creative Comics in Griffith,In from 10a-6p CST. I will be selling and celebrating the official comic shop release (Chicagoland and NWI) of Tales from the Cryptic Closet #2. I will have copies of this book along with copies of issue 1, Cryptic Creeper Plush, and stickers available for purchase. Masks are required for the shop and will be allowing only 5 customers in at a time.
New tees from Adam Farster for Dark Echo, Ashley Esper for the Ralph’s, and a new Deathbag tee (God Save Deathbag) are available now at https://www.belowthecollar.com/guerrillapublishing You can also find tees for other Guerrilla Publishing titles I have worked out there.
Hope you all are doing well. I know its been a crazy year and things have been all over the place. With that I am doing this update to catch you all up with what has been going on. I just closed my etsy shop and made the patreon page free.
Tales from the Cryptic Closet 2 was a very successful kickstarter and all rewards have been shipped out (for all those who completed their surveys). Guerrilla Publishing is slowly getting these in stores in the Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland areas. If you are outside of these areas and would like Guerrilla Publishing titles in your local shop, please have them email email@example.com

Currently trying to streamline all posts to instagram, for art and other announcements. Instagram is linked to my twitter account. artedeguerra for instagram and lgda726 for twitter. As for the site it will be link with patreon and updated every week.
In other news, I currently working on the next installment of The Misadventures of Deathbag. This next chapter will include the artwork of Ashley Esper and a story written by Michigan’s Three Y’s Men. Along with Deathbag, I will be doing another themed related sketchbook. “Pro Wrestling is an Art” will feature concepts sketches, layouts, penciled pages, and other things from all the wrestling related projects I have worked for and on. Guerrilla Publishing will be holding kickstarters for these in the near future.
As always thank you for all the support!
New Deathbag sticker is now available at the new etsy shop. Also in the shop are custom hand drawn sketch covers, copies of the Creative Comics Lost City Explorers variant cover, and various hand painted vinyl figures.
man oh man it’s been a long time. First off, thank you to everyone who backed and supported the Tales from the Cryptic Closet 2 Kickstarter. Because of all you amazing peeps we went behind our goal and are able to hook you guys up with some very cool stuff that is only available via the kickstarter.
What’s new? I once again collaborated with Freelance Wrestling star Purple Papi Matt Knicks on three new designs. “Matt Knicks and the Purple Jacket”, “Purple Papi”, and “Knicksfits” all of which are available at https://www.prowrestlingtees.com/mattknicks I have also teamed up with indie wrestling superstar Trevor Outlaw, check out his social media for a release date on that.

Also, just started writing the next installment of The Misadventures of Deathbag.
I was a guest on Alley Chats podcast hosted by Rob Southgate. We discussed my next published project, Commissions for a Cause, and the Tales from the Cryptic Closet kickstarter.
June 19th we will be launching the #kickstarter for Tales from the Cryptic Closet 2!!! This 80 page horror anthology will feature some returning creatives and some new creatives to stir up some of your darkest nightmares. Make sure to mark your calendars this is one that you sure don’t want to miss.
Man oh man!!!! So much has been happening and I have been failing to keep you all updated. So let’s get started. More pro wrestling tees have been created with two designs for Jeff Cobb ( hulk homage cover and Cobberin time) and just in time for Bullet Club day a new Tama Tonga design. I am creating working on the illustrations for a Lucha chapter book with Lexographic press. Working on the second issue of Tales from the Cryptic Closet with some very talented people. Working on a new design for Hurricane Helms. But the most important thing is that I’m doing is raising money for Northwest Indiana Cancer Kids and Creative Comics (my local comic shop). How am I doing this? I’m doing sketch cover commissions for $40 with half going to Creative Comics and the other half going to Northwest Indiana Cancer Kids. To get on this please DM or email me. Thanks.
it’s a wild time, huh? As of right now the cons are in limbo, but that doesn’t mean I stop creating. I am almost done with the illustrations for the upcoming Lucha Libre inspired youth chapter book for Lexographic press, working on two stories for the upcoming Tales from the Cryptic Closet #2, and writing a new Deathbag book!!! That’s right a new book of DB is in the works. Along with that teamed up with wrestling superstars Big C Chris Castro and Jeff Cobb for two new designs for Pro Wrestling Tees and I have signed the contract with Belowthecollar.com to be my official tee shop for all my non wrestling related designs.
