We had the good fortune of connecting with Keder LeBeau and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Keder, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
I believe perseverance is the most essential part of anything you do, from learning new skills, practicing or putting your work out there. Just by keep trying and moving forward, you can achieve anything you want.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m a comic book artist and character designer. As a child, I used to love drawing, and I think that’s the reason I never stopped. I’ve been developing my style for a long time now. I give my very best in every detail and trace I put into my work. As an artist, I believe that it is essential to pay attention to your surroundings, which gives you the necessary tools to put your ideas into paper. It’s fascinating for me to read new scripts and imagine the unique challenges they might bring. With every new project, I learn something new, which helps me improve on what I do. I know I will never stop learning, and I’m always ready to go further.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
This is a tricky question because I love many places in LA. I love going for a hike to Wisdom Tree, grabbing a drink in West Hollywood, or enjoying the breeze on the Santa Monica pier.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
In this journey, we all need a little push to get us through difficult times. For me, it hasn’t always been easy, but I had two people that had my back no matter the situation.

I would like to thank my friend Luis Zavaleta for all his advice, support, and above all, his friendship. I wish everyone could have a friend as cool as mine.

I would also like to thank the love of my life Bett Chaparro who has always been my driving force behind every dream I want to accomplish. Thank you for always being there and walking next to me every step of the way.
