Mardi Gras Artist Andrea Mistretta (http://www.andreamistretta.com ) comments, "From one artist about another, James Garcia is one of the most intuitive, fast thinking and moving creative forces I know. He is an inspiration because his tremendous talent is unpretentious, friendly and professional. James is the only one I have trusted and hired to help hand decorate my special limited edition Mardi Gras posters." Good Luck Dawlin!!!
