A picture of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, who was born in Puerto Rico. He's best known for being the guitarist in At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta, but I think a lot of his best work lurks within the mountain of solo and collaborative albums he's released (58 at the time of writing).

I got special permission to do Puerto Rico since it's an unincorporated territory of the US, but I also did a US flag version. Hopefully this also covers me given that the colours of the Puerto Rican flag have seemingly changed over time, and quite recently.

Drawn using the colours of the Puerto Rican flag (as found on Wikipedia) for the 9th November 2020 National Colors weekly challenge.

Main reference image was the second on this page.

With thanks to Hapiel and Quiara for their excellent critiques.

Thanks so much! I wish I'd had more time to work on it (a background would've been nice). Thanks again for the crits

This turned out really nice! I'm glad you picked these colors over the US flag ones :)
