A COOL Guide To Life

At the height of the pandemic, when things were a lot less certain, I thought a lot about what I would want my kids to know if something were to happen to me. Coincidentally, I also found myself with a lot of free time which gave me opportunities to get back into writing. I found myself writing daily, telling stories and lessons that I felt were important. After about 2 weeks, I thought this could become something, so I decided that I was going to commit to writing a book.

Somewhere along the line I got the bright idea to include illustrations even though I'm terrible at drawing. Nevertheless, I discovered a tool that let me draw pixel art, which I thought was fitting since part of my philosophy in the book is that life is a game. I gradually got better at drawing things in layers and after about 9-12 months, I published the book you see here.
