Raised in San Jose, CA, Antonio was just eight years old when his dad would bring home paper from work for him to draw on. He would draw all day and only stopped when his parents made him eat meals. In , as Antonio was entering his teenage years, he decided to take his art to the streets. Antonio aka ZOOK58 became a pioneer to the emerging art form called graffiti art. Encouraged by community leaders to use his art as a contribution to beautifying the city, Antonio was commissioned to create paintings and murals for various museums, walls, and parks.

This is the third edition of our "Profiles" series, and it is one of my favorite issues because we get to pack it with our local creatives. Doing six issues a year just does not provide the space to feature all the people we admire in our community; the "Profiles" issue is to give breadth more than depth and to introduce you to people we think you should investigate. It is also dear to me because I make this issue my chance to photograph all the people featured, so you will only see photo credits where I did not personally take the photos. If I could, I would shoot all the images and do all the interviews in every issue, but that is not really possible nor does it further our mission of giving locals a platform to showcase their writing skills and develop their photography. But for this annual issue, I get a little selfish and shoot all the images, not only because I love photography, but also because I really like to meet new people and get to know their story. Even though the shoots can be short sometimes, I feel that these people are my friends, and so it is my pleasure to introduce to you a few of my friends in this issue.
