Hello, I'm Annie!
I am a musician and a cartoonist who just moved from Chicago, IL to Albuquerque, NM. When in Chicago, I created the glam pop group Violet Mice. Here's a total banger from my EP CRUCIAL:


In Chicago, I also used to have a webcomic called FEELS, which was about a group of art school freshmen trying to get their shit together. It was sweet and sad, and I loved it dearly! But those things are also in the past. So what's the future!?

Right now, I'm almost done with a new album, called Weird (Like Me), which is going to be presented as a reissue of a lost gem of alternative rock from 1994. I'm also starting to work on the next album, The Nuclear Age, which will use the cover of my proximity to the Trinity test site to sing songs about the extreme depression moving here has caused me.

I'm also working on a very long comic book called And The Birds Flew From The Trees, which is about such jovial topics as youth, emotional distance, and toxic masculinity. I say that jokingly, but it feels like a very important comic for me to be making right now. I'm also working on turning my extensive survey of the old television show Sliders, called Think of a Roulette Wheel, into a full book; expanding every entry, trying to make it the definitive tome on that ropey old show.

So what's in it for you?

The $2 tier is "The Works and Progress," which allows you a peek into my work-life. Dispatches from the studio. You get to read the raw pages (as in, unscanned, with pencils still visible) from Birds. It's basically a free graphic novel

Plus, it's also a dive into the history of Violet Mice, starting with my first serious record, It Would Be Nice, eventually covering everything up to the final VM album Chiarobasura. This means that you'll slowly amass my entire discography, which will be something like 8 albums and change worth of songs, plus demos, sketches, live bits, the works!

So that's a free graphic novel and around seven albums worth of free songs, for $2/month. Not bad!

For $5, it's "A Month to Remember," which means you get Two Brand New Songs every month! They might be songs that wind up on my next album, or they might be one-offs that go only here. Here's a sample—



And what do I get out of it? Well, support, and the ability to do all this with less stress. Moving across the country is debilitatingly expensive, an expense I haven't really recovered from. It's also a thing I've recently started calling "the worst mistake I have ever made." I'm slowly trying to recover my life and finances so I can move out of here and prevent myself wading out into an arroyo.

Plus, there's always the materials— pens, paper, musical equipment, oh, yeah food, I guess? There's always something, and every bit will always help. I'm also newly out as a trans woman, which is a whole new world of expense and emotional rawness. 

My work life (okay, fine, my real life, too) is always shifting and changing. If you become a patron, you'd get to be the first to hear those changes. I'll trace a song from demo to finish for you. I'll draw a comic from sketch to bound for you.

Love on ya!



Tiers
The Works & Progress
$2 or more per month

Here you'll get to see what I'm working on now and what led up to it. Currently that means the raw pages from the graphic novel I'm working on (And the Birds Flew From the Trees), and a History of Violet Mice, which means you slowly build a collection of my entire discography while learning the stories behind the songs.



A Month To Remember
$5 or more per month

Along with access to the Inventory and the Comic, you get Two Brand New Songs every month! These songs are the more finished works in progress, and might end up on future albums, or may remain exclusive to you.

Music becomes my true part-time job, and I can focus on them with far more determination! The landing of moving across the country is much softer! Maybe I can find employment that helps free up time for creativity!
