Hello, I'm Ashley Reed! I'm a freelance cartoonist currently creating a webcomic titled 'The Pirate Checklist', a free-to-read adventure/comedy about an impulsive girl, Alynne, and her journey to become a legendary pirate! ...except she's doing it all wrong! To help her along, an unlikely ally provides a checklist of everything a good pirate needs. However, when Alynne catches the attention of the most infamous of pirates seeking to take advantage of her naivety, will she stick to her list, or succumb to the worst of influences?



The Pirate Checklist is my first passion project I've spent the last several years developing alongside of, and after launching March of 2018, has been updating every Tuesday since. Through it I've grown a love of the art of creating comics, and your support will help further my craft and career, as well as the future stories I have to tell! My full-time patreon goal is to release two pages for "The Pirate Checklist" per week, and begin posting a future story project alongside it.



As a patron you will have access to:
High-quality PNGs of artwork
Private streams
Sneak peeks to pages and other WIPs
And much, much more!

With your help I will be able to do what I love for a living instead of working minimum wage in retail and manufacturing. Thank you for your time and support, and thank you most of all for reading my comic! If you're new, you can read my comic HERE
