Hello! My name is Santiago and I'm an artist and illustrator based in Glasgow, Scotland.

I draw a webcomic called Kitten Rain that has been going for a while. It started out on Tumblr in 2012 as a series of surreal hand-drawn cat GIFs, an early incarnation of drawings called Because Cats, then comics, and eventually expanded into the Instagram world. The non-linear comics follow cats and their musings and realisations about all the very-human themes, such as motivation, self-doubt, friendship, confidence, been a-ok (or not), discovery, happiness, with a dose of cuteness inherent to our furry friends. This journey has taken me to travel to illustration and art fairs, create various pieces of merchandise, a compilation comic book and even a cat portrait drawing service. You can see my work on Instagram!

I often receive messages about how my cat comics have helped people to self-reflect on their lives, and helping them get through rough times. These kittens can get philosophical, but they've also been known to simply brighten some people's day with their cuteness. Having the ability to do this with my art is one of the most fulfilling things in my life.

One of the main things artists have to deal with in a practical level is living with an irregular income month-by-month. This naturally impacts my ability to create and share. For that reason, I'm launching this Patreon page as a way to support my work and help pay for the basics, like rent and food, and also help me draw and self-publish more comics, make prints and all sorts of cat things!

All my comics and art will always be free and shared across social media. If you enjoy, have enjoyed and are looking forward to help Kitten Rain's future, please consider becoming a patron.

For now, I will keep things simple and use this page as a way to create a recurrent source of income to cover the basics. You can support me for as little as $2 a month. I'm new to this, so I'll see how things go. With any patron tier you choose, you'll be granted access to an exclusive blog where I'll write about whatever you want me to, such as art, comics, life in general...

I'm not able to offer many other rewards at the moment, but as this grows I’ll experiment with ways of achieving that, my dear patrons.

A lot of thanks for reading! I hope you're having a splendid time wherever you are in the world.

All my love,
Santiago 🐈

I will have covered rent and bills! This will allow me to fund projects more regularly, such as new books, prints and restocking other products.
