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. But 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.
Listen to how Jerry tweaked his dream so that he could work creatively on different projects, be his own boss, give back and make a difference in his community and to various causes through the voices of Mama and the Boyz, and still do what he loves to do.
