In a world threatened by shadowy corporations, hellish war machines, and cruel people with too much money and time on their hands, one queer af artist must overcome impossible odds to stand out creatively and defeat the forces of boring, bourgeois evil.

Welcome to my Patreon.

What does it mean to pledge as a patron, you might ask? Aside from receiving dank gifts, there's a historical significance, and I'm all about that "doomed to repeat it if you don't know about it" stuff. So let's take a look back in time!

*throws glitter and pulls you by the hand into a psychic wormhole*


There's a long tradition in the Western art world of patrons (usually wealthy elites) supporting artists (also often from wealthy families) in pursuit of new work (mostly meant to be displayed in privileged institutions).

Now, thanks to the Internet and Patreon, a patron no longer needs to be any sort of monarch or oligarch or magnate!  You too can become a patron, and help artists all over the world to achieve job security in the arts, all while flipping the bird to a prestigious cultural tradition founded on income inequality and exclusivity.

*exit wormhole, stage right—SFX: woowoowoowoowoowoowoooooommmmmwwwaaaa*



In return for your patronage, generosity, and support, you get access to the gifts I can offer in return: a monthly digital sketchbook, ephemera, prints, insight into my process, collaboration, and much more. Check out the reward levels for more information! 

Now for the good stuff! Avanti!



I've got some fresh realness in the works. In April 2018, I attended the Arteles Creative Center in Hämeenkyrö, Finland. At this self-directed residency, I focused on comics & illustration, developing an urban fantasy horror graphic novel set in an alternate reality where magic, cryptids, gods, and faeries are real, and the coin toss that gave "Portland" its name landed on the other face, giving the city the name of "Boston" instead.

I'm currently working toward pitching this to a publisher and finding collaborators. It's a bit of a game of luck, but I feel ready, confident, knowledgeable, and driven. Just a matter of making, now!

I recently lost my sketchbooks on the tram, and I'm taking some time to mourn my loss. Which sounds extra. But art is very important to me, you see? I need to get a new sketchbook as soon as my grieving period passes.
Who knows what else lies down the road? Will you join me and find out?
