What Inspired The MoMeMans?
As I was entering a new role called mom, I began more intently looking around and noticing the environment my baby was going to be growing up in. How people talk to each other. How much hate was being pushed in social media in our country and around the world. This world of judging and comparing and "I'm right!" and "You're wrong!" Blech!
Up to this time, I'd spent 13 years as an Art Director in the biggest advertising agencies in New York City working on huge brands like American Express, Delta Airlines, Ritz Crackers and Lysol. I knew how to tell a story and make a brand come to life. So I began thinking about using my mindless meeting doodles to create a better world in which my child and her peers could grow up in.
Introducing The MoMeMans®
A kooky cast of characters with exaggerated idiosyncrasies because it's something to celebrate! I made The MoMeMans bursting with compassion, wonder, resilience and grit, because that's who I am! And their kooky parts have advantages! They don't judge or compare themselves to their neighbors. They embrace their own strengths and use them to support those around them. Because it feels good! I set out to make these funny little doodles demonstrate the possibility in my newborn child, her peers and all of us!
