I'm a Cartoonist at heart. I draw pretty little pictures for myself and on occasions, for anyone willing to hire me. This is my space on the internet. And bellow are nifty little links that point to all my hangouts.
Eric Merced was born in Puerto Rico and raised in Brooklyn New York. While he dabbled with drawing on and off in his childhood, it wasn’t until watching Disney’s The Little Mermaid and falling in love with the animation and style of the movie, that he knew exactly what he wanted to be when he grew up, a Cartoonist!
His passion for cartoons has led him to experiment with styles of drawing, culminating in what is now his unique signature cartoon style.
While he began drawing traditionally, he now draws digitally on the computer and on mobile tablets like Apple’s iPad.
Eric is currently hard at work on his first graphic novel, which he created and wrote, called Infectious. You can read the graphic novel now for free as a web comic at infectious.ericmerced.com
