This story came from a moment at Fusion Con right here in Florida. Jaxx was playing at a table with his Batman toys and as I watched him ( there is a video of it below) I was struck with the idea of big of the world he was experiencing, seeing so many different people at theses events and so many different costumes and impressive things. Some con-goers came (right after I finished filming) over to Jaxx and asked him about his toys. They were very Nice to him and made Jaxx Smile and he loved the attention. It became clear that him going to Cons was going to have a lasting effect on him.
For weeks that stayed in my mind. Then when someone asked me if I had any titles that where Family friendly that idea came to life in my mind as Jaxx the Andersin.
I wanted to tell the Story of how children of Creative Parents will be affected in a positive light as well as how their children might see the world from a different Point of view
I reached out to my Facebook Artist Freinds and told them I wanted to make a Children's Book that shows the effects of having a Parent as a Creator. To my Happy Surprise, many Artists wanted to be part of the project but Dave Brown's passion stood out. He had sketches to me in Hours of me posting, showing me just how much he got the project and wanted to be part of it. We formed a partnership and now, just meer weeks later we are on Kickstarter.
Now We Have Huge plans on where this idea is going. And if this Project Reaches far enough we might be able to do those things ideas sooner than later. We are asking for 750 for bare minimum Printing Costs. We hope to reach a stretch goal of 6000 dollars to unlock the ability to print both Book One and Two in a single Hardcover form and Start work on the book 3. Book 3 we feel will be groundbreaking but we would need to raise 6000 dollars to move on to that Idea.
The Bigger Dream
So to start, we are aiming for book one to be in a Comic book form. But with your support and sharing of this Kickstarter, we can make this a much bigger project. So this is a Stretch Goal hopeful campaign with a simple and modest beginning.
Meet The Writer

We hope to bring you something both creative and fun while sharing a message. of morality. I Have been writing comics for over 20 years but let Self Doubt stop me from Self Publishing until this Year. Now I have a need to share the over 100 stories in my Head with you all.

WS:: What is your Goal and Why That Goal amount?
Rob Andersin: Book 1 is the story of JAXX my Son. So this could be confused for a vanity project. But I am writing from what I know and what calls to me from my creative center. But I acknowledge, considering this my 1st children's book people might be curious and unsure. $750 gets this book printed. That's the Goal. I believe once it's printed and in people hands, they will see the magic of the story and see the potential and they will get that I won't let them down. With 750 we can start a long Journey, we would love to make more but we only 750.
WS:: Why is this project important to you?
Rob: Because it is at its core A story about imagination and human connection. The 1st Human Connection we have is with our parents. And far too often we talk about what parents do wrong or focus on the bad. This is a way to show the relationship between parent and children can be and is a beautiful relationship.
WS:: Why go through Kickstarter?
Rob: Me and DAVE BROWN the Artist Team up and are doing this because we believe in the powerfulness and potential of this series. With that said often to make Dream project like this come true, it takes a community of believers and Kickstarter allows us to find believers to support our dreams.
WS:: What makes your Kickstarter Stand Out?
Rob: Our long term plan. I will Write Jaxx stories for as long as people read them, however, I wanted this to be something deep with more meaning. Once I knew I was gonna make this Children's story I realized other Creator might want to be able to celebrate their children and make their kids a story they could read. I always want to bring Creators together and I truly feel like this project might bring together a massive amount of creators who will be making a group breaking Project.
WS:: Will this be an ongoing series?
ROB: I think it is more than a Series. Jaxx and his title will be a series but with this 1st book, we are making a universe. By the time we are done with Book 3 who knows how many Children's book will come from that project. This could open the door to a new wave of children's story told for a modern generation with contemporary morals for a new generation.
WS: How are important are you Stretch Goals?
Rob: We are a Stretch Goal hopeful Kickstarter, because I feel the 1st 2 books will set the Stage for the bigger project. I know as indie creators the idea is to keep the secrets but why? Because someone else might do it? Well if someone does what I say I want to do and does it better than more power to them. I believe I am gonna do what I say in a fantastic way that few would ever even consider it. SO if you steal the idea understand I am coming and my imagination is going to do it a natural no xerox way. So we have talked about the Jumbo Coloring Comic Book and will continue too. And Yes JAXX will be in the book and as a matter of Fact has a bigger part to play along with Breanna. SO this Creative world of Creative Next Gens will Move be amazing. Wanna know the Title of the Book. It is hidden on Jaxx the Andersin's Facebook page go see if you can find it.
WS: If you saw this project, pretending it wasn't your what would do you think of it and how you would react to it and Why?
Rob: I would think aww that's cute a Comic book about someone's kid. If I Wasnt a Dad I would give it a share and move on. But as a Dad and a Creator I think I would hope to be asked to join book 3. I also would reach out and ask how I can help and I would get a Book for me and Jaxx. Its what I do if I like a project and I think Jaxx is ok to have it. I think the idea of the Jumbo Coloring book would impress me
WS Bonus Questions: Give em the Pitch Creator
Rob: Jaxx The Andersin is the World seen through the eyes of the son of Creators. In the 1st bo0k Jaxx ponders what it means to be a superhero. He turns to his Dad ( ME) to ask what makes a person a superhero, and I fill him in and through imagination the idea plays out until Jaxx comes to his conclusion over what and who to him Real Super Heroes are.
Risks and challenges
Why Kickstarter? Simple because this is a story that should be told. Many creators Have children and see the effects of having a creative parent has on them. Children of Comic Book Creators get to see a different side of life and even get to experience more about life by being at Comic Cons throughout their lives and by .seeing the world come to them at times. The only real risk involved is how hooked you will become over this concept.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
