Brian Gordon – The Foul Language Of Fatherhood
Brian Gordon sums up fatherhood through his artwork. He has a hilarious comic series called Fowl Language. What can you find in his series? Gordon says, “My comics are largely inspired by my struggles as a parent, my fascination with technology, science and all things geeky. Oh, and a constant, crushing wave of self-doubt and anxiety. That’s a big source of inspiration, too.” Follow him on Instagram at fowllanguagecomics.
Micheal Turner – Sharing His Love of Sports
Michael is a Navy veteran who has served around the world. Thank you for your service Michael. He was born and raised in a not so nice area of Los Angeles. Michael never knew his biological father, and is trying to be the best dad and husband he can be. He believes a critical piece to solving most of the world’s problems is for dads to build and strengthen connections with their kids, especially their girls. When Michael’s two daughters were toddlers, he looked for a book about dads, daughters, and our national pastime. There weren’t any. So, he wrote one, called Baseball is Back. The book is a love letter to his girls and baseball and has been purchased by the Washington Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies. Follow Michael’s fatherhood journey on Instagram at baseball_is_back.
