During the pandemic of 2020, I started a meme page that featured a main character of my likeness with aspiration and inspirational quotes that became relatively popular. I enlisted these cartoons to be drawn because I felt that most motivational content featured Caucasian men and in wanted to add a person of color, who also overcomes struggles and finds success, so young brown boys (and girls) can see themselves within these messages.
I've since stopped having these cartoons created (for now) but I've published a hardcover and softcover book with all of the cartoons that were created. I own both copies and love them. I take this book out from time to time to remind myself of the journey. You can order a copy here and follow on IG here.
