Hi! I'm Gray. I make queer sci-fi and fantasy comics with sweet romance and some adventure!

My work tends to feature a fish-out-of-water character in their late 20s to early 30s who has made a drastic life decision, brought to it by fate, hard work, or both! Usually it's them rediscovering their dreams, or daring to follow their long-held dreams after doing something that everyone else had always expected of them. Follow along as they figure out their places in their respective worlds!

I currently write two comics. My last completed work, a sweet sci fi romance, is coming to print soon! But let me tell you about my current projects...




COMICS

Spidersilk
Desperate to find a new home, an ex-soldier falls in with a group of thieves. The thieves' working relationship with the city guard comes under fire when a threat from outside the wall appears, slowly pulling their delicate system of alliances apart. Despite this, Prentice thinks he may have found home. Perhaps more...

Spidersilk was launched in 2011 and is now a part of the Ink Drop Collective. 



Sunlit Silence:

Falkner made a deal to give up on their dreams if they were not recruited for an airship crew within ten years. After ten years of working as a caravan scout, Falkner makes good on that and pursues something within the city limits. However, that very thing leads Falkner right back to their dreams after an unexpected encounter...




FELL SWOOP:
A medic and his team encounter a lone scavenger foraging in the ruins. After an attack on the mission party, the pair find themselves alone and drawn to each other, despite the masks they each wear.

This queer sci fi romance is now complete! It can be read on WebToons or tapas.io, and will be printed later this year!



Rewards here are typically early access or are Patreon exclusive. Your support here means rewards such as early views on comics, behind-the-scenes concept work, and exclusive sketches or stories -- those are things your individual pledge bring you. Combined, we move towards great comic-focused goals that will allow me to set aside more time for comics, so that I can do more of what I love! 

I appreciate each and every patron. I been able to steadily update Spidersilk with patron support, and we are moving towards making that pace feasible for Sunlit Silence. I have also been able to write short stories -- two years worth of them, and counting -- due to patron interest and support!

PS: I also make coloring books. Check below!

COLORING BOOKS

Patrons often get the earliest views on any coloring book project I am working on! Both are available in my store!



ENCHANTMENT

Enchantment is a queer romantic fantasy coloring book featuring 30 pages of original art (25 by myself, and 5 by two guest artists). The book features a variety of soft romantic scenes, loud and fun playful moments, and more!



GUARDIAN

Guardian is a fantasy armor coloring book featuring women! There are thirty pages of illustrations of women in fantasy armor, all as the heroes of their own stories!
