I am INFJoe, an artist, creator of INFJoe Cartoons, and author of Text, Don’t Call. AMA!
My real name is Aaron Caycedo-Kimura. In January 2013, I began posting cartoons on the Internet as INFJoe, my online persona. Growing up as an introvert and, in particular, an INFJ (my Myers-Briggs type) was incredibly difficult for me. With these cartoons, I wanted to encourage others like me who were feeling odd or out of place.
Since the online series was so well received, I decided to put a printed collection together to reach a wider audience. TarcherPerigee, an imprint of Penguin Random House, has published my first book Text, Don’t Call: An Illustrated Guide to the Introverted Life. Through comics, commentary, and tips, this book celebrates the introverted life. I want as many introverts as possible to know that they are not alone and that introversion is not a defect, but rather a matter of natural wiring.
Thank you everyone! Thank you for coming. This has been a wonderful event. I will be signing off now.
