Aaron Caycedo-Kimura was born and raised in Santa Rosa, California. He drummed his way to New York City where he earned a Master of Music at The Juilliard School. During postgraduate soul searching, he realized that he had always been more visually oriented and picked up computer graphics to pay the bills and a paintbrush to feed his soul. During a creative rut in 2012, he created INFJoe, his online cartoonist persona, and discovered the incredibly receptive introvert community. Aaron and his wife Luisa reside in Connecticut, living a somewhat Type A bohemian life.

I keep my pen in motion, doodling, jotting down ideas as they pop into my head (whether they’re good or bad). If that doesn’t work, I find something else creative to do. For instance, I started cartooning several years ago when my painting wasn’t flowing. Staying engaged in some way is key. Each one of our creative endeavors informs all the others. Then there are times when I just have to take a break from creative doing, change perspective, take some time off. What you don’t want to do when you’re faced with writer’s/artist’s block is to panic or beat yourself up. It’s a fact of life, and it may very well be propelling you in a new direction.(less)
Aaron Caycedo-Kimura The best thing about being a writer/artist is working alone and getting completely lost in creativity.

“It’s important, however, to understand that being introverted is different from being shy or antisocial. Shyness is insecurity or fear of social embarrassment, and the word “antisocial” describes someone who has hostile or harmful feelings toward society. Introversion is a preference that has to do with where you direct your energy (inward), how you recharge (usually by being alone), and what level of outside stimulation you’re comfortable with (less is more). It’s not a weakness to overcome or something to be cured. It’s just how some of us are designed.”
Aaron Caycedo-Kimura, Text, Don't Call: An Illustrated Guide to the Introverted Life

“...because contemporary culture idealizes extroverted traits, we introverts—especially those of us who fall on the far introverted end of the spectrum—may feel that there’s something wrong with us. Some may not even understand or like themselves and may deny their natural preferences. We introverts need to understand, accept, and appreciate ourselves and how we are naturally wired.”
