My Story: I've been creating art since my youth ranging from fantastical illustrations, personified fruit comics, and sci-fi rogues to traditional portraiture. However, images I've made since 2013 have always lingered on an underwater fantasy theme that has since grown into a story that I need to share. That story is called "Phinite".




"Phinite is a fantasy story about a man, Ilaver, who experiences the tragic disappearance of his beloved sister Keståå in an inexplicable incident, earning the ire of his older exceptionally-gifted siblings. Ilaver lives with the guilt of Keståå's disappearance for several years until one day he happens upon a clue as to where she might be. Impassioned by the thought of one day seeing his sister again, Ilaver embarks on a perilous journey to the depths of the ocean, an action which will disturb the balance of power among the descendants of beings long thought gone, until now."



The purpose of this Patreon is to try to make comics like my current project "Phinite" my first priority so that I can share all of the story, side comics, illustrations, paintings and other tidbits more often than once every few months.

Where and when can I read the Comic?
For the sake of an easier user experience, the comic itself will be in a webcomic format using a platform called Webtoon (which partners with Patreon).  The first 32 pages are coming along with an intended late spring/early summer release. From then on, I will aim to post content at least once a month as my day-job allows.

What can I visually expect?
While I visually think best in traditional mediums, in all likelihood to create on a consistent basis, the majority of the comic will be in black and white (with gray values) with the occasional color images in a digital format. I will make efforts to at least have colored cover images introducing new chapters and/or benchmark moments in the story, ideally in a traditional medium. We'll see, the scope of this project is large and new ground for me.

The interest and support I have received over the years has been one of the most rewarding parts in creating my art, and now with platforms such as Patreon, you can play a direct role in helping the comic forge onward. If you enjoy what I create, thank you! If you’re comfortable with chipping in any amount for any duration, please know it’s hugely appreciated. If that's not the case today, but still want to show support, spreading the word is a beautiful act as well and is not an overlooked gesture.
