About FindChaos

Hello, there! Welcome to the Patreon page for A. Stiffler & K. Copeland — creators of many comics, like ChaosLife and FindChaos, as well as projects around writing, lifestyle, LGBTQ-positivity, and education! I hope you’ll join our community and support us along the way, but let me explain a little more about ourselves first!  

Such as, “Who Are You?”
We’re two married-to-each-other people creating as one team! As your current narrator, I’m A. Stiffler (they/them), a freelance illustrator, full-time comicker and passionate birder. We once made a comic strip about the fact I’m agender and you might have spotted a couple of my logos around Reddit here and there. 



Meanwhile, K. Copeland (he/him) is a freelance writer, likewise full-time comicker, bibliophile, trans man and herder of wolves (most popular guy amongst the dogs at the park, three years running). When he’s not researching for a project, he’s jotting down poetry, passionately advocating human rights, collecting quirky historical tales, and is often found teaching enrichment to his service dog, Legba.
 

Our works have been featured on Australian Broadcasting Corporation productions, The Discovery Channel Blog, The Washington Post, MSN (Japan), Gizmodo, AutoStraddle, OutLook magazine and NerdApproved, among many other online and print venues, and have been featured in the comic anthologies Smut Peddler (2014), Lambda Award-winning Beyond: the Queer Sci-fi & Fantasy Anthology, and Blood Root (Sawdust Press). We’re strong advocates of LGBTQ, BIPOC, and disability rights, and believe strongly in sex-positivity, mental health awareness, and in social justice issues, which brings me to: 

“What Are Your Comics About?”

All sorts of stuff! Especially those topics mentioned above, but to get more specific: 

ChaosLife is a humorous strip that's mostly autobiographical about our lives and the issues surrounding them, but has a few political or topical one-offs thrown in as they pop up in our lives. It's entertaining, funny and sometimes educational! Plus a ton of comics about our pets, if you’re just in it for some funny animal content, I get it.



FindChaos is our ongoing modern queer horror graphic novel. It begins with Arthur Carroll, a mysterious teen who seems to be involved with an organization hunting monsters, but to what end and where does he fit into this violent world? This comic contains a lot of violence, some nudity, strong language and gore, so it’s intended for mature audiences only. 


Our other works include short horror stories, educational booklets like Lesbians 101, book covers, character designs, business logos, various multimedia projects and more. Frankly, we just love creating and adding our weird, queer voices to the world, so there’s no telling what tomorrow’s project will be! 


“So, why should I support you?”

This is our job! We’ve been very lucky to have Patreon as the means to pay our bills and buy our food for years now, and none of that would be possible without people like you. In a world that is so aggressively against the arts, people with disabilities, and the LGBTQ community, you can rest easy knowing that you’re directly helping two very nice, if somewhat eccentric trans people try to entertain and better the world through our creations and by sharing our lives with you! 

You’re also helping us to pay for important things like medical bills and pet care — as two trans people with autism and one with a seizure disorder that requires a service dog, working freelance is a necessity for us, but also provides challenges with paying for transportation, doctors’ appointments, and medications. Even a little bit of support from each of our Patrons goes a long way to making our lives possible and we appreciate it so much!

In return for supporting us at any level, you get bonuses like seeing all of our comics early before they’re released publicly, private Patreon-only content each month, 10% off of our commission prices and some products, behind-the-scenes videos, blogs, and lots more that you can find information about in our support tiers.


”Why is this charged per creation instead of per month?”

Short answer: We want to make sure you’re getting something each month! Longer answer: Like our comics, we wanted to stay flexible and honest about our work productivity as it fluctuates, but as a rule of thumb, we make about 8 paid creations per month. We encourage our Patrons to cap their pledges to an amount they want to pay each month, so if we make enough creations to warrant your full pledge amount, great! But if we make more than that, you still get it all at no extra cost!

“What are your future goals? What am I supporting?” 

Frankly, we can’t stop creating. We have lots of stories to tell and will always be making comics about them, but we want to expand even beyond that. Apart from the lofty goal of “not being worried about how we’re affording meds this month,” we’re planning on doing a little day-travel and blogging more alongside our comics, producing some videos, writing some articles, live streaming, and generally sharing our lives even more with you as we explore, learn new skills, and give honest takes about what it’s like to be people like us in the world, looking for a happy, peaceful life of art, love, and DIY-ing. We want to continue to be advocates and educators, and hope that through the support of our Patreon patrons, we’ll have more time to devote to our passion projects.

“Can I find you, your content, or your merchandise anywhere else?”

Definitely! Be sure not to miss…

Thanks for reading and I hope you’ll consider joining us on our weird adventure! 

Goals
$511.46 of $550 per Comic
Whew! This would be amazing and mean more stability for us, which will translate into more time free with the means to go exploring and find even more content for you! Plus, our meds wouldn’t be something we sweat every month!
