Throughout this story, the readers are taken on a adventure in the eyes of Virtuous, who is one of the heroes of this story and along with a few more interesting characters (Kings, Demons, Fiends, Evil Princesses).

Tyrone Evans Clark establishes that there is no limit to a person’s capabilities by excelling, as well, as a musician. Boasting a discography of phenomenal tracks, he has recently released “Gotta Get Some Tissue!” Currently available for streaming on various music platforms, “Gotta Get Some Tissue!” is a song that creatively encapsulates one of the biggest struggles during the early phase of the COVID-19 outbreak.
“For a while, I’ve tried to come up with a comical and creative way to express my feelings for the lack of toilet paper and tissue in the world. The main cartoon character, “The Tissue Man,” is a caricature of me and expresses the discomfort of my new reality. This character drifts off into la-la land when he runs out of tissue paper, going on an adventure and meeting interesting characters along the way,” he elaborates.
Shortly after its release, the official music video for “Gotta Get Some Tissue!” was selected by a few film festivals, such as Venice Shorts and Montreal Independent Film Festivals. For the entirety of the festival period and even afterward, it will grace countless screens worldwide.
On top of that, this song “Gotta Get Some Tissue” and along with other songs such as “Hope”, “Look Me in My Eyes”, and “Video Game” are even in the Multi-Award Winning film Homeless Sam & Sally – The Movie (and tv series) soundtrack.
