I'm Allie MacAlister, an illustrator & cartoonist based in Ottawa, Canada.

I create artwork on freelance commission for clients big and small, as well as create products that I sell at local craft shows and on Etsy.

Currently, most of my time for illustration goes towards commercial contracts and commissions for clients. I would like to have the opportunity to create more of my own content, such as:

  • autobiographical and journal comics
  • new products, art prints & digital downloads
  • videos on YouTube: Art tutorials, challenges and other hobby videos
  • short fiction stories, including a vagabond stumbling onto a haunted tourist trap and tales of a witch opening a brewpub for wandering adventurers;
  • a project I’ve been working on since college about old gods and new magic on the maritime coast;
  • live streaming art events with Patron perks;
  • … and more!
Support from Patreon allows me to focus on these projects, and reward supporters while doing so.

So, what's in it for you?
Becoming a monthly Patron of my work gets you peeks into my process, chatter about being a self-employed creator, periodic giveaways, guides, tutorials and more. Options from $1 to $5 per month are available, with increasing perks per tier. 

Patreon is a digital tip jar that allows creators like me to pursue more of the projects that my fans want to see - illustration, videos, storytelling, and much more.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you'll join me on this journey!
10 of 100 patrons
If I reach 100 patrons, I'll start a Patron-exclusive Discord. Discord communities need a big group to run well, so this is the kickoff point!

I would love to reach this goal, as community engagement is one of my favourite parts of making stuff! Help me get there!
