Hello!
I've created comic books since 1987 when I first got my start illustrating ROBOTECH comic books for Comico. I was the artist on ROBOTECH NEW GENERATION. I'm the author/artist of numerous comic books in the past: SHURIKEN, PEACE POSSE and KIDZ OF THE KING.

I'm soliciting your financial support so that I can be free to create AFROBOY & PUFFGIRL comic books and products full time.
AFROBOY & PUFFGIRL is a life skills based property for boys and girls of color.

I believe that our children need to see as many positive images of themselves in the media and entertainment. 
This project will not only exist as a comic book, but also posters, T-shirts, stickers and buttons. 
There will also be a series of PSA pamphlets created to be given away to children and teens disseminating information about staying away from drugs, how to deescalate violent situations, and being responsible and safe when using social media and cell phones.

Each issue of the comic presents problems and solutions to situations like Bullying, Self Esteem, Conflict Resolution and Decision Making Skills.
With the swagger of the "hero and sidekick" approach mixed with a touch of Japanese manga influences, AFROBOY & PUFFGIRL follows the adventures of a young brother and sister in "Philly City" who are endowed with amazing powers and use them to combat negative forces in their hood and beyond!

Join me in getting this wonderful project published for our kids to enjoy, learn from and emulate. Help me inspire millions of "Afroboys" and "Puffgirls" in every neighborhood all over the world.
