Hello I am Gabriel Mensah. I was born and raised in Louisiana. I've had a tough childhood, living poverty most of my life. I graduated Hammond High School and studied at Collins College in Tempe, Arizona and ITT tech in New Orleans Louisiana. I'm a big Anime/ Manga fan mostly and like good comic book movies. The graphic novels I create are more like Japanese Manga. My art style is Japanese manga, but unlike Japanese Manga my comics reads from left to right and are fully colored like American comics. I'm a gamer as well. I love RPGs and adventure games the most. I started playing video games and drawing since I was age 3 and at age 12 I won first place at a art competition against teenagers and adults.
What would probably be a shocker to you is that what inspired me to create wasn't even Japanese anime or American comics, it was video games like Final Fantasy which are story filled games. Finsl Fantasy 7, 8, 9 and 10.
Seeing the the main story and each character story and back stories, character theme songs , drama, character and story development etc of those Final Fantasies gave me inspiration.
What's unique is that I create my books from my cell phone. I write and illustrate my work so I truly appreciate when someone likes what I do. Thank you for reading.
Sincerely- Gabriel Mensah
