Is He Based On Me.

Creating Shouty Mack as a comic strip for a high school newspaper, NeonSeon developed Life of Shouty as a book series for children in 2010. NeonSeon grew up in Chicago’s Hyde Park community and currently resides in Atlanta. Honors include a Mom’s Choice Award for life of Shouty: Good Habits.

When I turned 17 my parents threw a surprise party for me. You’d think I’d be overjoyed that all of my friends were at my house to celebrate my birthday, but I WASN’T. And it was for one reason only. … (Full Statement) My messy room! My room was an absolute mess! Clothes on the floor. Clothes on the desk. Clothes Everywhere! My bed was not made and it looked like a tornado had come through. My mom was always telling me to clean my room, but boy was I upset she didn’t put the hammer down this time.

Note TO Parents: On behalf of messy kids caught unawares everywhere, please tell your kids there will be a photo shoot in the house-anything-just make sure the room is clean before you throw a surprise party!!!! This bad habit is an attribute I gave my character, Shouty. He has a messy room and instead of an unmade bed, he foregoes sheets altogether. Is he based on me? Maybe a tad, but I’ve changed, and by the end of Life of Shouty: Good Habits, Shouty does too. If you’re super neat and can’t relate to messiness, maybe you or someone you know can relate to some of Shouty’s other bad habits in the story such as his lack of flossing, not cutting the lawn, and hitting the snooze button too many times. Whatever it is, Shouty and his journey can inspire you! Happy reading!

About Life of Shouty: Food and Fitness

Shouty returns with a new challenge: his health. The second book in the Life of Shouty™ series by award-winning author and illustrator NeonSeon shows Shouty’s ups and downs on the path to wellness.

Like many of us, Shouty places a premium on being a productive person, and crossing items off his daily to-do list. While healthy food and fitness don’t make his list of priorities, Shouty is unaware of the impact this has on his declining health. Over time, Shouty becomes painfully aware that he must make lifestyle changes to improve his health, quality of life, and self-esteem.

Touching on themes of overeating, obesity, and inactivity, Shouty’s journey is illustrated in a way that captures his despair, as well as his ultimate triumph.

Debuting on Child Health Day, it is NeonSeon’s hope that this book affirms the importance of making healthy choices in one’s life and helps readers envision healthier versions of themselves. If you’ve ever found yourself on either end of the health spectrum, or are making your way somewhere in the middle, Shouty hits several notes on his path that will surely sound familiar.
