This is a heart filled story about love, father and son, reassurance, and imagination. I wrote and illustrated this book and worked on it for over 3 years. In July 2014, I successfully launched a kickstarter campaign to help fund and self-publish it. This bilingual book was translated by Cinthya Muñoz and designed by my wife, Joy Liu-Trujillo for Swash Design Studio.

“Furqan Moreno wakes up and decides that today he wants his haircut for the first time. His dad has just the style; a flat top fade! He wants his new haircut to be cool but when they get to the barbershop, he’s a bit nervous about his decision. He begins to worry that his hair will look funny, imagining all the flat objects in his day to day life. Before he knows it, his haircut is done and he realizes that his dad was right — Furqan’s first flat top is the freshest!
