Hey! I'm Big Tim.

I'm a storyteller (actor, podcaster, and writer), and this Patreon page is going to focus on my comic book work.

I've been working in the creative arts for over two decades. After four years of reviewing comic books for Giant Fire Breathing Robot, I dove into writing short stories for Australian cult comics Killeroo and Circus. From there I went on to create paranormal investigator and monster hunter Cthulhu Williams resulting in two successful Kickstarter campaigns. My mission on this planet is to combat the stigma society places on mental illness and suicide survivors, and these important themes have informed and fuelled his webcomic Gorilla my Dreams.

I believe comic books and superheroes are a form of escape and support and under the right (or really wrong) circumstances, comics can save lives. This is why I want to make more comics. I wanna try to contribute to saving someone else’s life with my silly characters and Funny Books.

Since Cthulhu Williams #0 dropped, I've had people ask me what they can do to help me get more comics published. Well, after looking around, I stumbled across Patreon that seems to be exactly what these people were asking for.

The people already pledging are really taking the edge off paying my artists Ahmed Raafat for our current project: The Gorilla my Dreams webcomic. I really couldn't do this without them and I feel very lucky to have their support.

When you become one of my Patrons not only are you helping me get artwork completed faster, but you'll also get some pretty cool rewards!

For example, $1 a month will get you access to my patron-only blog feed (which at a bare minimum will include a fortnightly look at a finished page of Gorilla my Dreams WAAAAAY before they're posted on the webcomic site. You'll also see exclusive behind-the-scenes artwork of upcoming pages, and various discussion about my process and working with artists). And the higher you pledge, the more loot I'll be sending your way including; Signed scripts, t-shirts featuring my characters, and even limited edition variants of the books that I release from here on out.

Please have a look at some of the rewards to your right, and I hope that you will join and support me on this new journey!

Thank you for continuing to support my work in whatever format you choose - in print or digital - and telling others about what I do. Having the opportunity to tell stories and meet so many wonderful readers is a thrill.

Big Tim.
