Here you'll get to see what I'm working on now and what led up to it. A work-journal, of sorts. It can include demos of songs, finished songs, first drafts of writing projects, final drafts of writing projects, sketches for comics, finished comics, detailed histories of old songs and comics, anything I might be spending time with! Right now, it's me working my way towards covering the entirety of David Bowie's Diamond Dogs!

It's the same benefits of the previous tier, but with more sweetly received generosity from you! You will still get access of a backlog of songs I made specifically for the Patreon, though the exclusivity factor isn't something I'm into anymore. All for all, I say! (Thank you)

About Annie Fish

Hello, I'm Annie!

I am a musician, writer, cartoonist, and trans gremlin tryin' to make it through this rough world. I've been living in Albuquerque, New Mexico having previously resided in New York City, New York, and Chicago, Illinois. When in Chicago, I was a member of the infamous cartoonist's gang Trubble Club, and I created the glam pop group Violet Mice. I also used to have a webcomic called FEELS, which was about a group of art school freshmen trying to get their shit together. It was sweet and sad, and I loved it dearly!

Right now, I'm now making records as Annie Fish! Presently, via the help of this Patreon, I am workin' my way through a full-cover album David Bowie's 1974 album Diamond Dogs, which so far has borne some glittery fruit:

Last year, via the help of this Patreon, I made this full-album cover of David Bowie's 1969 album Space Oddity I just made, which I cheekily titled Tran of Words / Tran of Music:

Here's a video for the song "Weird (Like Me)," from an earlier 2020 album, EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS BAD, which was an album made up of songs I've written while in NM, via the help of this Patreon!


For more previously glam fun, here's a total banger from my EP CRUCIAL:


In 2020 I completed work on four albums: the aforementioned Tran of Words / Tran of Music, Weird (Like Me) (which is going to be presented as a reissue of a lost gem of alternative rock from 1994), a rerecording of my first record, It Would Be Nice, and The Nuclear Age, which will use the cover of my proximity to the Trinity test site to sing songs about the experience of abuse I lived through after moving to ABQ. Fun! I even made a sad, weird video about skeletons!

I also have been known to do a bit of writing. I wrote a blog about the old television show Sliders, which I'm occasionally expanding into a full book, and I've been getting back into writing essays about music. I'm also working on a very long comic book called And The Birds Flew From The Trees, which is about such jovial topics as youth, emotional distance, and toxic masculinity. I say that jokingly, but it feels like a very important comic for me to be making right now. The writing half could be anything— essays about Star Trek, or not, or essays about, I don't know, the game Marathon from 1994, or my complicated relationship with Billy Corgan. Who knows! The sky's the limit! 

And what do I get out of it? Well, the knowledge of your support is a great boon to my mental health, and the ability to do all this with less stress. Moving across the country was debilitatingly expensive (emotionally), an expense I'm just beginning to recover from (emotionally). Moving around (physically) was as exciting as it was terrifying. It's also now the time to find out where I'll be making a new home base. I have a feeling this (as in, this patreon) is going to be the place to be if you want to find out how that winds up!

There's always something, and every bit will always help. I'm once again moving and that's always a lot! My work life (okay, fine, my real life, too) is always shifting and changing. If you become a patron, you'd get to be the first to hear those changes. I'll trace a song from demo to finish for you. I'll draw a comic from sketch to bound for you. You get first drafts all the way to finals.

Okay, enough from me...

Love on ya!

This becomes a part time job, and everything gets better; easier; softer. I can stretch my legs, and start to plan some more multimedia-based plans of attack.
