About Joamette Gil

My name's Joamette! I'm a queer Afro-Cuban cartoonist working in the broad spectrums of speculative fiction, autobiography, and romance. "Queer woman of color representation" is the name of my game.

If you've heard of me before, it was most likely through the award-winning, all-POC comics series I edit, POWER & MAGIC: The Queer Witch Comics Anthology, or through my intersectional education comics on Everyday Feminism and The Nib. You can see more of my comics here!

Why Patreon?
Patreon is a service that allows fans and community members to pledge a monthly dollar amount toward supporting creators they believe in. It also makes it easy for creators to offer their patrons special rewards in exchange (think of it as an ongoing Kickstarter campaign).

I call myself a "cartoonist" for simplicity, but I really do a bit of everything to bring home the bacon: cartooning, editing, illustration, Spanish translation, comics lettering, prepress work, sensitivity reading... (*wipes brow*). I struggle with mental illness and exclusively work from home on a freelance and contract basis, which neither supports me well, nor leaves me with much time to simply practice my craft. Through your Patronage, I can cut back on (and eventually cut out) freelance work to focus 100% on being a creator and publishing comics for queer audiences and audiences of color!

Any perks?
Apart from my undying gratitude and appreciation, all Patrons will have exclusive behind-the-scenes access to all of my projects, plus my personal sketchbook entries. Whether it's figure studies, set and character design, thumbnails for an upcoming comic, or color studies, you get to see it before everyone else!

How often will I be charged?
You will be charged for the first time as soon as you become a Patron, then on the the 1st of every month following that! You can edit or cancel your pledge at any time! Learn more at the FAQ

Once this Goal is reached, I'll be making an original digital wallpaper for all Patrons!
