My name is Luanga Lue Nuwame and I’m a comic book writer and publisher, YouTuber, and cardboard craft artist residing in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. I’m best known as the Homemade Game Guru on YouTube. This is my crafting channel specializing in handmade DIY projects, geek crafts, comic books, and oddities related to cardboard innovation. The channel has received over 7 million unique views from around the world and since the channel’s creation in 2008, it has been featured in The Mississauga News, Reader’s Digest, Global News, CTV News, The Toronto Star, Make Magazine, Inhabitat Magazine, The New York Post, Global Innovation Magazine and numerous other media websites and publications. In 2015, I published a DIY craft manual called The Cardboard Bible which was a former Amazon Canada top selling paper crafts entry.
In 2008, I won a Majorfun.com award for making innovative fun online craft tutorials for kids and in June 2021, I was a finalist for the City of Mississauga’s MARTYS Awards (the highest honor for the city’s artists). In 2009, I obtained a World’s Record Academy world’s record for creating the largest handmade board game, which was based on my home city of Mississauga. In 2020, I teamed up with various comic book artists in Canada and the United States to create a fundraising 3D ‘Superheroes VS COVID-19‘ cardboard poster to raise money for the Mississauga Food Bank.
Currently, I’m launching the world’s first line of cardboard articulated magnetic action figurines based on indie comic book superheroes and I self-publish comic books through my company Zelpha Comics and Collectibles. I have a bunch of published books on Amazon, a genealogy board game course, horror products, and other creative pursuits, but I think you already see that creativity is my life. I live to make stuff!
