For those of you who don’t know who I am, I’m a writer and illustrator for a self-published comic book series called The Mannamong. It’s a story I’ve been working on since I was twelve years old and has been a personal project I’ve built up over the years to be what I want to do in life; create fictional content. But just not in written form, but also visually expressed. So I draw everything myself.
The Mannamong Comic Book Series
The Mannamong was the very first of a long list of ideas I came up with over my adolescence that helped me focus on getting through the crummy teenage years and aspiring to be an entrepreneur with my intellectual property. So nonetheless, it’s a been a personal journey for me, and I have this story to thank me for giving me a clear purpose. Sounds a bit corny, I know, but as you’ll probably learn from this point on, I’m a sentimental and deep thinker.
My ultimate goal is to keep publishing The Mannamong along with other projects I have planned down the road until I can establish a firm business in which my work can spread towards other mediums like animation, toys, games, and others. It’s an ambitious goal many artists seek to achieve, I know, but it’s worth giving a shot. And not to sound too boastful, but I’m pretty confident in my skills to deliver not just entertaining stories, but timeless ones that have a lot of meaning to them.
The real reason I want to venture into other mediums is to allow children and adults to find something pleasing to share, just in more accessible avenues. What matters most is if I succeed in creating stories that can touch people in a heartfelt way. And my goal is these postins will express who I am as a person, how I view entertainment, what I love about storytelling as a whole, and why I’m taking this journey.
I’m going to try my best to share my journey as a comic writer to everyone curious about my work. And if you’re willing to follow along to see how my plans and circumstances fair out, well, I’m glad to have you on board. While I haven’t been perfect in updating my social media presence, unlike a majority of people around the world, but I will do my best to keep you all informed!

Those of you who signed on a long while ago and haven’t heard from me in months, I apologize for not being utterly attuned to the internet. But I can assure you for those who are interested in the next release of The Mannamong, that it is coming along. It’s just a matter of planning and drawing lots and lots of roughs to help me tighten the upcoming issues.
Here’s a pic to show you all what exactly I mean.
