Hello!

Thanks for checking out my Patreon page!
I hope you like what you see.
If you do, but don't want to make pledge, I'd be most grateful if you were to share this page around your social networks!

Who Am I?

I'm Curtis, a guy raised and living in Birmingham, England and I've been drawing since I was old enough to hold a pencil.

I've been working as an illustrator professionally for a few years now.
Here's my website: www.curtisallen.co.uk

I take commissions for artwork such as portraits, and sell a few lines of my own greeting cards, prints, and other illustrated goods in my Etsy store .

What Am I Asking You For?

I've been itching to create comics for a while - I have some ideas that I think are rather tasty, but I have struggled to find the time in between other work commitments to actually bring these to bear.

A boy's gotta put food on the table!

What I'm asking Patrons for, is the opportunity to create comics telling these stories, while making some sort of a living from it.

Every pledge really does help, and the more pledges I receive, the more time I can spend on comic creation rather than other jobs just to earn a crust.
As it is, I can only work on comics once I have made enough money at other jobs to be able to afford to. This means I am only creating comics in the spaces in between everything else so I can't commit to a regular output at the moment.

The more pledges I receive, the quicker I can turn out new material, and eventually I'll be able to settle down to a regular output schedule.

What Will You Get?

The rewards currently include:
  • Having a character in the comic based on YOU!
  • Early access to each page: they'll be up on Patreon at least a week before here
  • Exclusive access to Hi-Def downloads of each page, only available through Patreon
  • Exclusive Behind the Scenes pictures and text such as sketches and failed designs
  • Downloadable Hi-Def Patreon exclusive artwork in addition to the comic page
  • Exclusive Behind the Scenes videos such as videos of artwork creation
  • Q&A sessions with me
  • Original artwork mailed to you
  • And joining my exclusive community here on Patreon, where I'll keep you updated with the progress of the comic.
Plus: with some financial support behind the comic, I can dedicate more time to it and get the pages out and the story moving along quicker for you!

Current Project: "Where's a Warrior Without Her Pride?"
I've begun drawing a fantasy comic that I wrote some time ago, revolving around a girl who was a  powerful warrior-mage and a big fish in a small city, who finds herself accidentally thrust into the centre of a theological controversy she didn't ask for in an even bigger city. 

At the heart of the comic lies a question:

"With great power comes great responsibility,"
...or should that be, "With great responsibility comes great power"?

When it's complete, I'd like to get this published online, and with enough pledges, I'd love to see this in print!

Here's the first page, to give you an idea of the style:



Thanks.

That's about the size of it. Thank you for reading this far, and thanks in advance for any of you who do make a pledge of any tier.

It really does all help me personally, and I like to think help bring about another voice to the comics world!
