I create and self-publish webcomics. Over the last ten years my main project was Red String, which was both published by Dark Horse Comics and then self-published later on. My current projects are Demon Aid and Erstwhile Fairy Tales. I am also preparing to launch a new comic series, Love Not Found, which is a futuristic space romance. On top of all this I illustrate erotic comics for the female centric, female creator site, Filthy Figments (nsfw). I am also a mom of two very young children (2 1/2 years and 6 months). My husband is my tech guy for all of my creative endeavors.
In order to give away the comics for free I depend on other sources of revenue (banner ads, books and merchandise sales, commission work, etc). These things can fluctuate month to month, so there are some months where things are really tight.
The great thing about the web is it is always coming up with new ways to help creative people. Patreon is a new way you can support my work. It's sort of like a TIP JAR. If you enjoy my works you can give a little something as a way of saying "Thanks for what you do. Please keep doing it." You can use both Credit Cards and Paypal to do this.
In return, on top of the comics I will continue to produce for free no matter what, there are other things you will get by becoming my patron. You can get access to my private sketchbook blog that has concept art, character sketches, doodles, works-in-progress, and things that may or may not ever make it to the general public. There's a preview of my upcoming comic series, Love Not Found. Cameos in my comics are up for grabs, and a whole lot more!
I will be at a couple conventions coming up, but not many because of the kids. I'll be at Zenkaikon in April and MomoCon in May. Might be at DragonCon, but that is still up in the air... I really hope I can be there this year.
