Jerry Craft loved to draw. After a career as an advertising copywriter and then an editorial director for Sports Illustrated for Kids, Jerry decided to strike out on his own. His dream was to write and illustrate comic books. ┬áBut he realized that by using his experience in the advertising-editorial world, he could make a living using both his creative talents and his business know-how to create the award winning Mama’s Boyz comic strip and other books and products he has authored and illustrated.

    I am a big fan of the Mama’s Boyz comic strip and of Jerry Craft. This was a great interview. I love the concept of “subliminally” giving a message without being overt and preachy, preachy. The other part about the messages of Mama’s Boyz reaching across ages and races is so true. Good Job Jerry!! Much success
