About Ali Cantarella

Are you ready to get something nice in the mail?

Hey y'all, I'm Ali!
I'm a Chicago based illustrator and self-proclaimed resilient optimist Before the Coronavirus Pandemic, I would travel across the country to comic conventions, art shows, and events, sharing my work and meeting new friends across the world. Now, it is my goal to adapt to travel differently-- Exchanging flights for road trips, train travel for bike rides, overnight stays in hotels for sleeping in tents camping, cabins, RVs, and more. With a mask, hand sanitizer, and plenty of distance, I now aim to explore the great outdoors, and the warmth and inspiration new cities and people can provide, even from 6 feet away.

My previous life took my art to locations such as Seattle, Boston, New York City, Indianapolis, Detroit, Orlando, Nashville, Louisville, as well as international trips of Costa Rica, Colombia, Iceland, and more. While my adventures (and my ways of getting there . . . ) may look a little different in 2021, the spirit of exploration, creativity, and inspiration is still strong in this resilient artist heart, and I want to keep sharing that with you.

I'm utilizing Patreon to create monthly illustrations in the form of beautiful Postcards.
For $6 a month, you'll receive a physical postcard, illustrated by me, with a handwritten note--stamped and sent from the location of that month's trip! Each month's art will be unique and new, and Patron's will be the first to receive it! There are also options to receive multiple postcards so you can send one to a friend, and even original one of a kind artwork, created while on my trip.
I know the current state of my mailbox: it's all bills and junk. It doesn't brighten my day. My goal is to connect through this traditional medium, bringing all the fun of a monthly pen-pal without any of the stress of responding.

HOW THE REWARDS WORK:
  • Under the rewards panel on the right, click your favorite tier and sign up!!
  • On the 1st of every month, the subscription fee will be charged from your account. Patreon gives a 5-day window to make sure all charges are completed.
  • After the 5th, depending on my travel schedule, a surprise postcard will be sent out from an exciting new location directly to YOU!
  • Postcards and letters will be shipped standard USPS mail Forever Stamps and will not be tracked. If you do not receive your card, I am so sorry, but there is no way for me to track, refund, re-send, or otherwise be accountable for these postcards.
  • Yes! These ship INTERNATIONALLY!

My comics, children's books, coffee paintings, stickers, illustrations, and more are available through my Etsy, Instagram, Threadless Tee Shirt Site and Website.

This Patreon is all about connection, so thank YOU: for stopping by, for supporting my craft, and for being a part of the work that I do.

Keep adventuring!
