About

Have you ever heard of Tonatiuh the Sun god of Mexico? Possibly not cause I sure didn't.

My goal is to change that with the Legend of Piyoman, my "Aztec" fantasy graphic novel series, my educational talks, and other art projects.

Cualli Tonalli! 


I'm Gonzalo (Gonzzink online) and I'm a Mexican-American Author/Illustrator living in Port Arthur TX trying to bring the indigenous Nahua culture of Mexico to the mainstream. Learning about my indigenous roots changed my life so I want to share what I've learned to empower other Latinx’s around the world with my graphic novels, games, talks and more! 

I've been working full-time on my projects since 2018 and thanks to my Patrons, fans, and my partner I was able to survive until I got picked up by a Publisher for Piyoman! 

SO WHAT IS PIYOMAN?
It’s an Aztec fantasy graphic novel series about a Mexican boy’s coming of age journey through the war-torn Aztec underworld to find his grandfather and rebalance the universe. The first book will be published with Harper Collins in 2021 and the sequel 2022.

Since then I've done conventions, talks, and more to pay the bills however, it's not enough to get us through till the book release. I would like to continue working full-time to make it the best Aztec fantasy series possible! There aren't enough out there and is why I've dedicated my career to making it.

HOW YOU CAN HELP!
Patreon is a place where people like you who want to support me can fund my work through monthly pledges which helps us pay bills, buy supplies, and most importantly, have less financial stress so we can make more art, games, and educational material.

If you want to help, just select how much you want to pledge per month
(even $1 makes a difference) and you'll get exclusive updates like behind-the-scenes videos, life updates, secret artwork and more (which are emailed so you don’t miss em) 

Thank you for checking out my Patreon page and I hope you'll consider joining me on this journey. I started this story back in 2015 and I can't imagine where I am now thanks to my fans like you so thank you!

Check out the rest of my work on instagram, youtube, twitter, and my website.
