Hi lovely people,

I'm Dotti Colvin, a cartoonist, an animator and I draw cartoons which tap into the child in me, my childish side, and my sole purpose in this world is to make you laugh.

I have a comic strip called 'Fish Tales: Stories from the lake' about my wonderful and slightly annoying family. About the eternal struggles of raising a family and trying to stay on the track without drinking too much Prosecco, told in an upside down world of fish and their foibles.

I also create one-panel cartoon musings on the world which are available on super cool T-shirts and the like. All ethically produced.

You can see plenty of my animation on my YouTube channel and I'm going to be animating more projects, and more tutorials, when I master the art of not sleeping at all or I have enough Patreon friends...

Patreon friends? What is Patreon? 
Patreon is super groovy. It allows you to connect with real artists and to become part of their creative journey. It's a subscription membership, a bit like Netflix - You pay something you get something. So, by joining my community I'll give you access to stuff that non-members can't have like desktop wallpapers, sneak peeks into my sketchbooks, signed artwork, commissioned caricatures and tutorial requests! yey!
Having you join me as a patron on this journey would mean that I can concentrate on creative projects I really believe in...feed the kids..make you laugh...and stop animating commercials for big businesses who sell tosh no-one wants.

So, please, become one of my patrons, join me on my creative journey and receive my undying love and gratitude and other cool stuff.

This would be awesome! If we reach this goal, I can stop panicking about feeding the kids and dedicate some real time to my personal work.  This will be a big step and will allow me to create enough FishTale panels to fill a book, which you can enjoy.  With this amount of dedicated patrons, I will also be able to produce stickers, giveaways and add a patron-only drawing tutorial to my channel every month.
