Hi Artfans, I finally created some new designs. Thought to tap into that special niche of islander culture :) Influenced by kawaii style, I drew some cutesy islander dolls.
Please check out my art on EBAY!
Happy Holidays All, I posed my unique cartoon character in a holiday setting. That's right! I invented him.
The little round guy is Maka from my original children's story, "Maka and the Impossible," which is a parable of ambition. My little rock leaves his village and goes on an impossible journey. Reflecting his creator (me), he has an ISLANDER FLAVOR to his style.
To read about his adventures, please check out my book :)

"Maka and the Impossible" is a Polynesian children's story which I wrote based on my own experience as a Polynesian American.
The message is universal in that it's a parable of Ambition. Maka is a little rock, and he decides to travel up a hill. The problem is that rocks are not mobile - no legs nor arms.
Starting with that problem, I chronicle his impossible journey up a hill.
Similarly, I know what it's like to decide to travel up the career ladder in California. After spending many years working and going to school, I've made progress in a field that I don't see too many of my peers: Law. That's right, I'm in law school :-) I know for sure that I'm standing on the shoulders of giants - my family - who empowered me to move forward. So I am grateful.
Like Maka, my journey towards becoming an attorney was not easy. Many would say that my dream was Impossible because I did not have the financial resources to pay for law school nor the mentors from whom to model myself.
Yet, all it took was Initiative. By continuing to believe in myself and putting in the work towards higher education, I gravitated towards the right people who answered my questions. Although I didn't have Samoan or Tongan attorneys from whom to follow, I reached out of our community and asked Latino attorney mentors for assistance - who were happy to answer my questions, and direct me towards scholarships.
My children's story character - Maka - has traveled much further than I. But I look forward to catching up with his greatness in my near future.
To read my Polynesian children's story, "Maka and the Impossible", you can purchase a hard copy on Amazon.com.
For the ebook version, go to Lulu.com.
Wish me luck! The journey continues.
