About Gonzalo Alvarez

Have you ever heard of Tonatiuh the Sun god of Mexico? Possibly not cause I sure didn't.

My goal is to change that with the Legend of Polloman, my "Aztec" fantasy graphic novel series, my educational talks, and other art projects.

Cualli Tonalli! 


I'm Gonzalo (Gonzzink online) and I'm a Mexican-American Author/Illustrator living in Port Arthur TX trying to bring the indigenous Nahua culture of Mexico to the mainstream. Learning about my indigenous roots changed my life so I want to share what I've learned to empower other Latinx’s around the world with my graphic novels, games, talks and more! BUT I need some help.

Patreon has been life changing for me as someone raised in a low-income household and living in a poor community. Patreon is a place where people who support me can fund my work through monthly pledges which helps us with bills, buying supplies, and most importantly, having less stress so we can make more art, videos, and school visits.

HOW YOU CAN HELP?
If you want to help, just select how much you want to pledge per month
(even $1 makes a difference) and you'll get exclusive updates like behind-the-scenes videos, life updates, secret artwork and more (which are emailed so you don’t miss em)

SO WHAT IS POLLOMAN?
It’s a graphic novel series about a Mexican boy’s coming of age as he must overcome his childhood fears to save Mexico and the war-torn Aztec underworld of the Mictlan. The first book will be published with Harper Collins in 2021 and the sequel 2022.

Thank you for checking out my Patreon page and I hope you'll consider joining me on this almost 6 year journey!

Check out the rest of my work on instagram, youtube, twitter, and my website.


Goals
