Hello and welcome to my Patreon page! Your monthly support helps me create peace and justice art to show that a more compassionate world is possible.  Here are two ways this will happen...

CHILDREN'S BOOKS
I create (write and/or illustrate) children's books to encourage young kids to be agents of creative peace and justice in the midst of a suffering world. Kids will be challenged to think critically, creatively, and take action. A big part of this is collaborating with other artists on book projects. If you want to collaborate with me, please let me know!

ART BLOG
I also create art/cartoons at evokepeace.com that expose violence and exclusion while pointing toward a more compassionate world.

TOPICS
Peace-making (nonviolence)
anti-bullying, environmental issues,
inclusion, gender equality, empathy,
inter-racial appreciation, listening,
compassion, critical thinking

WHY SUPPORT THIS WORK?
Kids are surrounded by media and role models that promote violence and exclusion.    Sure, some resources exist already, but we need more!

The closer I get to my goal, the more time I can spend creating, which will finally allow me to pump out some books.  I'll try to get books officially published, but if that doesn't work, I'll self-publish and books will be available on Amazon.

ABOUT ME
I'm a Taiwan-born American currently living with my wife in Japan.  I teach English and am using Patreon to free up more time for my creative projects.

I previously spent five years living and working in the slums of India. While teaching in a local education program and facilitating a peace education project, I grew to realize how powerful art and story can be for kids to imagine an alternative future where they can be agents of change in a world of violence and inequality.

My work is largely inspired by the spirit of Jesus, who invited us to a life of peace-making, inclusion and compassion for all people.  I've also been deeply shaped by my friends in the slums and others on the the margins who have taught me so much.
