About

My name is Nicky and I'm a queer artist-educator working in the San Francisco Bay Area. I create zines and comics centered around the many facets of identity, like being a struggling, second-gen Puerto Rican bilingual. I studied animation then transitioned into a degree in comics to fulfill the desire I had to diversify narrative form in style and content. That decision has led me to travel to different zine fests and conventions, do readings, teach comics, and talk on comics, diversity, and inclusion and the ways in which visual storytelling can be used to discuss identity, culture, and experience and how these things can inform the way in which a story is told. When not creating and traveling, I am teaching children in Oakland how to express themselves through visual storytelling. 

This Patreon will give supporters a behind-the-scenes look into my process, as well as give access to my comics for anyone who I've yet to cross paths with. Any and all funds through Patreon help support me in continuing to create my comics by financing print and supply costs, as well as fund the travel for me to go to all the events I apply to and am invited to so that I can broaden the scope of access to my stories and build my skills as an educator and storyteller.
