What Inspired The MoMeMans?
It all started from meeting doodles. I come from a career in advertising and there are so many meetings. Like, an absurd amount. So, I doodled. TBH, it helped me listen and pay attention to what was being said. And when the meeting stopped. The doodle stopped.
Before I knew it, I’d doodled my way into a whole cast of characters. I’d look at them and wonder what they could be about. Their level of physical details depended on the length of the meeting. And I liked them half-finished. Or even a quarter-finished. Because as I began writing their backstory and reason for being, I appreciated the good they could be at that stage of their life. I mean, shouldn’t we be appreciated for the good we bring at every stage of our lives? So, that’s what they became.
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!
Plus I’m a mom. And was a new mom when I really dove in, and this was my way of sharing who I am with my daughter. To help her and her peers see the possibilities in all of us!
We're on a mission to bring joy to parenting by finding the funny, sunny side with Poetry + Songs + Art + Gifts for Creative Grown-Up Kids who aren't afraid to be fantastically different!
I look forward to expanding their narratives and sharing new stories and videos as they are ready. Until then, I hope you enjoy their quirky, kind-hearted nature and learn to love them as much as I have loved creating them. Thank you for being here. Thank you for your interest. I'm having so much fun sharing The MoMeMans with you.
With love and gratitude every day I get to do this,
