BECOME A PATRON TO READ THE POLLOMAN CHAPTER BEFORE IT RELEASES 8/24!

Hola! My name is Gonzalo Alvarez (Gonzzink) and I'm a Mexican-American Illustrator and game designer. I was the first to be born in America, first to go to college, and was raised in a poor household in southeast Texas, but I didn’t let that stop me from doing what I love.

I now have a BFA in drawing and have founded Macua Studios which created Borders my internationally exhibited art game inspired by my parent's immigration story. Now I'm ready to create the first Mexican folklore franchise The Legend of Polloman, but I need your help!



WHAT IS POLLOMAN?
The legend of Polloman comic series is an effort to create the first transmedia Mexican folklore universe and bring the culture and history of Mexico to life through a deep story and rich world much like Avatar the Last Airbender and Studio Ghibli have created. 

Emmanuel, a timid boy from a small pueblo in Mexico, will learn the true meaning of sacrifice after he stumbles into the Mictlan, the Aztec underworld, where 6 terrifying Latin American legends such as El Raton de los Dientes, La Llorona, and El Cucuy dwell.



I’ve spent the last 2 years researching Mexican and Mesoamerican culture, history, and folklore to create the most authentic and unique universe possible while also designing, Illustrating, and writing the Polloman comic series, video game, pilot episode, merchandise, and tabletop marble game!

WHY I NEED YOUR HELP!
My Co-creator/fiance, Grace Chadwick, believes in my vision and has given me 1 year to work full-time on Polloman by being the breadwinner. However, we are still struggling financially despite me taking commissions, doing paid speaking panels, and teaching to help. 

By becoming a patron, you can help me cover my bill so I can truly work full-time on creating and pitching the Polloman franchise to book publishers, animation studios, or even, finding enough support on Patreon!

WHAT IS PATREON?
Patreon allows fans to directly support the projects through monthly pledges in exchange for exclusive rewards. It's the easiest way to support me and it's super easy and quick.

 Click the orange button on the top right, insert your info, select your reward, and that's it. You'll be charged the moment you becoming a patron and then the first of each month for the amount you pledged. You don't have to worry about it ever again unless you want to change or cancel your reward.

WHAT REWARDS DO YOU GET?
Patrons will get everything first, get exclusive content, and much more.
For $1 a month you get to be one page ahead of the webcomic release, get exclusive updates, and sketches. It doesn't seem like much, but even 1$ shows others I'm worth supporting and adds up quickly. (500 fans = bills paid = Polloman comics! Games! Cartoons!)



Higher tiers include all the comic PDFs, behind-the-scenes contentgame betas, and even exclusive merchandise at your doorstep before they're available elsewhere!

It’s been a long couple of years developing this project, and there are many more years ahead, but thanks to my friend's support and those of my patrons, I’m getting closer to making this a reality.

I hope you consider joining me on this journey!
