Benito is working on the next illustration for Diego’s third adventure book. Diego has a vision of traveling back 500 years to Tenochtitlan, the capital city of the Aztec empire, where he sees a boy buying a statue of Magnifico from a vendor. When he realizes it really is Magnifico, he steals it and runs for his life. Four Mexica soldiers catch him and take him to the nobles, who will decide the outcome of Diego’s crime. The illustration shows Diego being carried by the soldiers. It’s just a sketch, so keep checking back to see it in its finished form.

This Hispanic book is going to be so amazing! I love writing fantasy, and like Conor’s story, Diego’s story is getting better and better with every fantasy fiction book.

Check out the Diego’s Dragon blog on to see the illustration.
