I became friends with Robert Trujillo during the Myspace era. He has been a contributor and a big supporter of what we do at GhettoManga. I have enjoyed the privilege of watching Rob build his illustrator game and become an accomplished children's book author and illustrator
I was proud to back this book on Kickstarter back in the day, and even more to see the book reach a wide audience. Rob is the prototype of a professional artist as activist. All his books are designed to make the cultures he embodies better. Whenever I see him accomplish something... I couldn't be prouder of someone I have never met in person!

Samax Amen is a professional Content Developer, Illustrator and Cartoonist. He is the artist of many great comics you never heard of like Herman Heed, Champion of Children, The Brother and The World As You Know It. He even writes and draws his own comics, like Dare: The Adventures of Darius Davidson, Spontaneous, and Manchild when he gets around to it. Because making comics is hard and stuff, he started GhettoManga as a blog in 2006 and as a print magazine in 2008.
