ABOUT ME
Hola! My name is Gonzalo Alvarez (Gonzzink) and I'm an Illustrator and game designer. I grew up first-generation Mexican American in a poor household within a blue-collar community in southeast Texas, but I didn’t let that stop me. I now have a BFA in drawing and founded Macua Studios which created Borders my internationally exhibited art game inspired by my parent's immigration story. I’m ready to tell the stories of my Mexican culture by creating the first Mexican folklore franchise, The Legend of Polloman.

WHAT IS POLLOMAN?
The legend of Polloman is an original 48 chapter Mexican folklore adventure comic series designed to be an educative and entertaining universe illustrating the beauty of Mexican and Mesoamerican culture.

Here's a summary:
A timid boy, Emmanuel, accidentally enters the Mictlan -- the Aztec underworld, where Latin American legends such as La Llorona and El Chupacabra reside. Saved by a group of undead priests, Emanuel learns that Mictlantecuhtli, the god of death, has lost control of the underworld to six mythical beast. Taking the role of Polloman, the chicken warrior, Emmanuel embarks on a journey to restore order to the 8 levels of the Mictlan. With the fate of the world on his shoulders, Polloman must make sacrifices and discover his own courage, or he will never see the human world again.
(For fans of Paper Mario, Inuyasha, and Pokemon! )

I’ve spent the last 3 years researching Mexican and Aztec culture, history, and folklore while designing, Illustrating, and writing the Polloman comic series, video game, and tabletop marble game to create the first Mexican transmedia franchise.



Series like Inuyasha have acted as gateways for people around the world to learn and appreciate other cultures and their lore and there are barely any stories featuring Mexican Warriors or creatures like El Cucuy (the Mexican boogieman).
After uncovering my Mexican roots I found my passion and have dedicated my life's work to share the stories of my culture and become a role model for young Latinos, much like I wish I had growing up!
By becoming a Patron, you can help me make that happen.( And get exclusive rewards!)

WHAT IS PATREON?
Patreon allows fans to become Patrons and support my projects and I through monthly pledges in exchange for exclusive rewards.

My goal is to gain enough support to keep the lights on so I can put 100% of my time towards Polloman and complete 8 chapters a year, the Pilot episode, the Tabletop Marble game, and RPG action-adventure video game. I currently work full-time creating the series and other game projects because I believe in their success, but they will have to slow down unless I can find the support :(

HOW CAN I SUPPORT POLLOMAN?
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 don't have to worry about it ever again unless you want to change or cancel your reward.

WHAT REWARDS DO I GET?
For just $1 a month you receive exclusive news, sketches, name in credits, and you'll be supporting a Mexican comic (and creator!)

Higher pledges receive all the comics, work in progress steps, comic scripts, and game demos. If you want to know how it's made, or want to help make it, this is the reward for you.



$1 doesn't seem like much, but it shows others I'm worth supporting and adds up quickly when others support me too.(500 fans = bills paid = Polloman comics! Games! Cartoon!) If you enjoy Polloman in any way, please consider supporting. I can't thank you enough!

It’s been a long 3 years developing this project, and there are many more years ahead, but thanks to my friend's support I’ve been able to get to where I am at today.

I hope you consider joining me on this journey as a creator and I can't wait to share it with you :)
