My Mission (Alicia Carr)
One of my life’s goal and mission is to EMPOWER women. I have learned that we are the same with our struggles and I don’t want to see color. I see women, and women all over the world are going through problems they shouldn’t have to whether its in tech or through life. I also see, as people, as women, we are one. When women struggle, we all struggle.

Stationed in Atlanta Ga, I spend most of my time toiling away late nights on everything from illustrating children’s books, comic art, to random character commissions and more. A proud father of two, I somehow manage to steal enough time to create loads of artwork and check homework. I’m excited about the direction my comic properties are heading in, and I look forward to creating more forms of visual entertainment and stories to enjoy
