“I work at night, and sometimes there’s a little bit of downtime, so I’ll work on it a little at a time, maybe like 15 minutes at a time,” he said. “I definitely don’t finish them all in one night. It takes like a week or two weeks to finally get it all done, but definitely work comes first.”

Palomo started sharing his art around the hospital about three years ago. He said he wants to “liven it up” in the unit with his drawings.

“From what I’ve seen, it tends to make the kids and even the parents really happy,” he said. “Anything to normalize the environment and cheer them up.”
