Los Espada and Super Group Go!

Super Group Go!

The pic above is a picture of success. You may not be familiar with it, it’s a comic book series created by Los Espada, a good friend of mine.

What you don’t see is the story behind the story.

Super Group Go! was years in the making. I remember when Los first told me about the concept back in the early 2000’s. I thought it was a cool idea, but I myself have had many cool ideas that never went further than the idea. So what’s so special about this one? Consider this; he went through years of creating the world in his head, years of criticism from people telling him it won’t work, or conversely, years of people telling him how great it is, but snickering behind his back that the idea will never get off the ground.

Nothing but a dreamer…?

I’m sure there are many who would write Los off as just a dreamer.

But the story from my point of view is different. I saw a guy who for years did the work and took the time necessary to turn an idea into reality.

Los didn’t simply have an idea, he did what many (most?) never do; he took action.

He had the guts and the drive to actually act on the idea, to execute, to ship it, to make it real. And even now he isn’t finished, as there’s more to this creative beast than meets the eye. The Super Group Go! comic book was just the beginning.

Rough road behind, rough road ahead

And the road Los walks hasn’t always been an easy one. I’ll spare you the details, but suffice it to say that even during the low seasons of his life, he continued to chip away at this dream one piece at a time, little by little, never taking his eye off the goal.

Blood, sweat, and inspiration

To say the least, Los is an inspiring guy.

His drive and positive spirit are a reminder in my life that the times when I want to give up and crumble under pressure are the times when I need to ‘shake it off’ and just keep pushing on.

Thank you, Los, for inspiring me (and many others) to work hard, dream big, and to be a positive influence on others.
