I wanted to be a writer but also create a one-for-one social brand like Tom Shoes or Warby Parker to help my students keep traveling, learning, and sharing.
While living in the world’s most prominent street art district (Wynwood, Miami), I was driving myself crazy thinking about this—I didn’t know what to do!
So, my girlfriend gave me a coloring book to help me relax.
The joke is on her! That’s when it hit me.
I spent a year tracking the best street artists in the world—Kenny Scharf, Lady Pink, D*Face, and even Bansky—and I invited them to collaborate with me and let me turn their famous murals into gorgeous coloring pages.
P.S. Kidding! She was incredibly supportive. Read the full story by The New Tropic here.

I started handing out flyers in the streets of Miami, telling people about my idea—which turned into two successful Kickstarter campaigns that birthed this project.
I built an online shop to avoid the unfavorable costs of marketplaces like Amazon, but I learned to compromise at the end of the day. (Ahem—they won 😒).
I spent hundreds of hours reaching out to the best street artists in the world and getting their authorization to illustrate their murals and turn them into gorgeous coloring pages. I spent far more time illustrating their works after that!
During the following years, I placed the books in boutique stores & museums and worked out bloodsucking distribution deals that showed me how the book industry is just one giant monopoly. I built an online shop to avoid the unfavorable costs of marketplaces such as Amazon, but at the end of the day, I learned to compromise. (Ahem—they won 😒).
Thanks to this creative project, my life has been a combination of adventure, art, and connection, but what I set out to do has been financially impossible.
I’ve met hundreds of incredible humans and talented artists I can now call friends. In my book, that’s worth the effort.
By 2023, I’d only sold about 25,000 copies (which makes a best-seller anyway—yay! 😅) all by following a passion project—and admittedly, distracted with others. And while every penny has gone back into building this brand and fulfilling its mission, I realized it has not been sustainable.
I’m a restless creator, however. Passion projects like this one take time, effort, trials, and errors and can’t be done all alone—I’ve finally come to learn that.
So, when there is a will, there is a way. This is what I have in store for 2024:
