I’m Abrian Curington, founder of Blue Cat Co. publishing, illustrator, writer, fantasy cartographer and mentor. I wear a lot of hats!

I specialize in light-hearted fantasy stories that champion fun, adventure and conquering the obstacles of life. After graduating with a BA in Fine Art from WWU, I started Blue Cat Co., an independent publishing company dedicated to producing fantastical works that give people an escape from the din of the world. No gore, no mature content. Just fun for everyone!

Not only do I make fun books for everyone to enjoy, I can also teach you how to get going with publishing books as well. It’s not impossible for an average person to become a publisher. Anyone can make it happen with the right tools and mindset!



Before I continue on about all the cool stuff I want to give you. Let's talk about what Patreon is, what it means to me, and what it can mean for you!

What is Patreon?

Patreon is where people gather together to help support a creator, so that the creator can produce more and better content with less financial strain. You pledge a small amount per month, and I give you some goodies in return!

What Your Support Means to Me

Blue Cat Co. is just me. One creator, trying to make a living by bringing you fun stories and information. My money comes from occasional commissions, book and merch sales, Patreon, and when that's not enough, a day job. I can tell you, I've spent the last several years overworking, not seeing enough of my family and having a "decent" day job, and ends still don't meet.

Patreon, as in your support, allows me to:
  • Have a stable income that takes the pressure off making ends meet with commissions and day jobs
  • Make better and more frequent content without invoking over-work
  • Connect with you one-on-one and find out what you'd like to see from me
  • Potentially hire staff to lighten my work load
  • Eventually produce great books without making everyone dance through the Kickstarter hoops

Now the fun part: What you get for supporting me! Aside from my undying thanks of course.

Rewards

Apprentice: For $2 a month, you get access my exclusive patron-only feed. It includes works in progress, early access to graphic novel pages (we're talking months if not years in advance) and insight into my work. You will also get your name printed with special thanks in Woolmancy if you sign up before August 31, 2018 (but only if you want)!

Journeyman: For $5 a month, you also get access to the month’s process videos and explanations. Here's an example of a video!


Colleague: For $10 a month, you also get downloads of materials and ebooks as I create them.

Master: For $20 a month, I will also send you a fine-art print from my current project every 3 months (you must have 3 months of patronage in order to receive the first print).

Payment Information

Since I post frequently, this Patreon is set up to charge monthly, rather than per post. So you will only be charged once per month from me!

Current Projects

Woolmancy


Currently production is on Woolmancy, the next graphic novel slated for print. It's about a best friend break up over evil portals and mythical lightning sheep. Also weaving. Also tea. Read about it here: Project - Woolmancy



In the month of January 2018, I wrote a post each day about preparing a book for print. I've collected all the posts under the tag Press-Ready, and you can access them until the end of March, where I'll pull them and format into an e-book. The first 7 days are free, and will remain up for viewing!

Catch the free posts here

Pop over to the shop to pick up the ebook bundle (or $10 patrons get all of my digital books!)


Let's expand our worlds together!
