Here’s a new comic to encourage readers of all ages to read comics. I know some will say it’s not educational or that they’re not real books but who cares. If you enjoy reading them, read em! And for those who haven’t fully seen what comics can do, this is to give them a nudge.
Big shout out to bilingual book box “Booklandia” for including some of my artwork as a coloring sheet for kids in their recent book boxes. Booklandia was founded by Maceo Cabrera-Estevez in Oakland California to send picture books, middle grade, and young adult kids books to parents and educators across the world. This company is very special because it seeks to share books that feature children of all colors in English and Spanish. Check them out. Here is some more artwork.
I’m passionate about literacy and I hope that this artwork will make it into a classroom, library, organization, day care, or home near you. The subject of this piece is a young father of color and his child reading. Thats it.
Check these out. Have you ever wanted to bring a cool custom gift to a baby shower? Or surprise your friend who is a teacher with a gift that not only supports literacy but champions children of color? Get them a book plate or several so they can reinforce positive reading habits as early as possible.
You can purchase these individually or in packs of 10 and 30.
Here is my fourth sticker bookplate. Bookplates are intended to mark who the owner of a book is; whether that be student, teacher, library, or school. This one is in spanish for all the bilingual and spanish speaking folks out there.

This is the second in what hopefully becomes a series of “Story time” prints. I made this and the first print as art prints that could be hung in homes, libraries, or classrooms. Anywhere that children are read to really. You can purchase this one on Etsy HERE.
Hey good peoples, I just finished working on this new one. Hope to make more than one with this style and/or color combination. Thought of making a poster for folks who regularly read to children. I was listening to an interview with writer/actor Lena Waithe so thats how the reader got a few pieces of her. Hope you like it. If you want one for your spot check out the store link.
Peace, just wanted to share these in case you have missed them. Bookmarks featuring children of color!!! Please share. I started working on these awhile back. At first I recycled an older image, then it was so well received I painted some more specifically for these book marks. This is for kids who love reading, or hate it. It’s for teachers, librarians, and book store owners. It is for english speaking and spanish speakers. If you would like one, or a pack of 10 or 30 for a group check out my store. More coming soon. Peace!
