My name is Shawn Colvin. Outside of my family I dedicate my life to comic book creating and drug addiction counseling( which I do for full time work). My life was turned upside down when I fell into drug addiction and was an addict for 22yrs. In and out of prison and destroying everything I touched. My worst time is when I lived on skidrow and in alleys for five straight years in Los Angeles California. Eating out of dumpsters, panhandling, and chasing the high of crack cocaine became my life. In 2011 I turned my life around at The Helping Up Mission drug rehab( in Baltimore City Md.) I have been clean and sober for 8yrs. now.I also found my calling of creating comics and counseling others toward the path of recovery from drugs and alcohol. I created a book called “Bluey Kool” which is about a homeless addict who’s soul is sent to purgatory after he unwillingly played a part in the death of his son which lead to him overdosing on heroin and cocaine . The overdose put him in a coma which lead to his soul being sent to ” The Purg”. There he has a chance to redeem himself in order for his soul to be returned to his body. I created, wrote, penciled, inked, lettered, and colored the the first issue I published in 2017. I had to put the book on the back burner because I bought a house with my wife the same year I put out Bluey Kool. Now that my family is settled in( I also have a 14yr. old daughter) I am hard at work on rebooting the “Bluey Kool” comic book series! I am truly blessed and will continue to strive to be the best man I can be while constantly improving my comic book art and creating.
