I'm Matt J. Rainwater, a freelance illustrator and comics self-publisher.  You may have seen my name in the Plants Vs. Zombies graphic novel series where I worked as a colorist for several years, or maybe you've seen my name with the autobiographical strip, The Feeling Is Multiplied? I have an eclectic interest in comic books and I've worked on nearly every single level and position in the creative process. Visual storytelling is a lifelong passion of mine and I have a robust catalog of stories in different stages of completion to show for it.

At this moment, I'm focusing my time and energy towards completing Batmonster, a webcomic I'm producing alongside lifelong cohort Austin Price.  Batmonster is a darkly comedic, surrealist comic strip that explores psychedelic landscapes: green fields of gnashing teeth, lava flows aside budget motels, nested realities of TV shows within wistful daydreams and other bizarre existential ephemera.  Often veering into the philosophical, the irreverent, and the indecipherable, it contains an ever evolving cast of characters, especially the only named character, Batmonster.  My goal is to create a total of 540 comic strips for this story.  But there are also additional side stories that will be available to backers of my Patreon.  


Then of course, there's Trailer Park Warlock, a comedic action story about Jake Baker, a working class warlock who struggles to make ends meet with the help of a special brew of down-home DIY magick.  As of now, the first book containing 160 pages has been completed, but my ultimate goal is to create a total of 5 books spanning Jake's reintroduction to the Mancer's Union, Darla's rite of passage into a full-fledged Road Witch, grand plans of a shadowy cabal, and the intersecting chaos between all these events.  Backers of my Patreon will get first-hand access to behind the scenes sketches, framework, and stories as they become available.

In addition to all of this I have a children's story book that will be available to users upon completion as well as far distant plans of refurbishing Garage Raja, my first and most ambitious project with writer and co-creator Austin Price.

If you'd like to support the work I'm doing, any amount helps and pushes me forward in all of my goals even if you're only interested in one of my particular projects.  If you're looking for an inexpensive way to get access to my bibliography of E-Books that include new cover art and other goodies, this Patreon is for you. If you've wanted a means to steadily get art for your wall, this could be your landing pad.   If you've been following my work for a long time and want to help give that extra push of support to get me to that next level of artistic independence, this is your opportunity!

Thanks to all my readers, present and future, and here's to a fertile, prolific future with a brilliant community of patrons!
