About

Who is Gregery Miller and what is Alosias? 

I've been drawing and creating for as long as I can remember. I grew up in the woods on my family's fifth generation farm. Alosias is a fictional universe that I've been building since I was a kid, inspired by the world and characters around me. My goals are to continue my comic series, The Tales of Reverie, as well as to produce a field guide style art book called A Field Guide to Alosias!

What professional work have you done?

I recently finished working as a background artist on The Midnight Gospel on Netflix. I'm a former Cartoon Network's Adult Swim background artist and through the years I've worked with Hitpoint Games on Disney's Fairies for Microsoft, designed apparel for Urban Outfitters and have worked on a large scale art installation in Palm Springs, CA with a prominent contemporary artist. These jobs have given me great experiences, huge challenges, and I'm thankful for the connections and skills I've gained with them. My professional work has pushed me to new levels but my goals have always stayed the same, to illustrate my stories.

Backstory:

This whole thing started with a creative writing assignment way back in 7th Grade. For context I am 34 now. I was asked to write a one page fictional story. I had so much fun with this assignment that I ended up drawing all of the characters, and began developing a complex mythological narrative (For an 11 year old anyway). I kept working on my story through middle school, and into high school. I was fortunate enough to get into a performing arts charter public high school in my junior year. It was here that my creative juices started flowing on hyperdrive, and I began creating a field guide of all of my characters and my world, no - my universe!

The story I developed in high school was about a world called Quintoth, one of seven worlds in the vast universe of Alosias. Other worlds in Alosias are Glaar, and a parallel Earth, called Reverie.

When I got into college at MassArt, I began developing The Tales of Reverie. I studied animation and illustration, and I focused my thesis project on concept art for Reverie and it's characters. I continued working on this story out of college, and released two 24 page comics in 2016 and 2017 that explored just a few of the characters. In total I have a list of around 250 characters, races, and locations that I've compiled through my life.

My biggest artistic aspiration is to create a field guide, comics, and world building artwork of Alosias. With a little help from patrons like you, it will be easier for me to focus my free-time on developing, funding, and releasing this work as printed books. 

The Field Guide

As I work on the comics, it's necessary to step back and design the world in more detail. Some of the characters haven't been designed yet and still only exist in my imagination. So I'm creating this field guide to the universe of Alosias which will include detailed breakdowns of the characters, maps, and concept art of locations. I'm also always writing, which is sometimes difficult to show progress for visually. Check out some examples of my characters here!

The Comics

I've been illustrating The Tales of Reverie comics since 2015. I stopped on page 59. As soon as I get 25 patrons I'll have enough support to continue producing the story.

How Does Patreon Work?

Patrons pitch a recurring amount each month to help bring this project to life. As I produce exclusive content, you are given priority access and sent specific rewards. There are tiers to pitch between $1 a month and $15 a month. Each tier provides greater perks. For example, the higher tiers will earn you better perks like original artwork. Check out the perks in the right hand column. I'm also open to other suggested rewards of equal value. Patrons can pledge monthly for as long as they want and can stop pledging at any time.

How do you self publish and whats your end goal?

I've used Greko Printing for self-publishing many times and they always do an amazing job! The end goal is to find a publisher who can distribute my artwork and stories to a wider audience.

What does the future hold?

With the right support, content will premiere regularly until the larger field guide and comics are ready to be released.

Support from patrons will go towards:

1. Creating the field guide of characters and locations

2. Creating the comics

3. Mailing rewards to patrons

4. Writing stories for the field guide and comics

5. Self-publishing: Printing and distributing the field guide

6. Buying new supplies and tools necessary to producing the work

Thank you for considering pledging to the creation of Alosias!
