Hi there! My name is François Vigneault and I'm the creator of the sci-fi comic Titan, the artist of the forthcoming YA series 13e Avenue, and lots of other fun stuff.



I've been creating comics and illustration work professionally for over a decade, including projects about birdwatchingangsty griftersgoofy hackers, and most recently, rebellious gargantuan workers at the edges of the solar system. Titan has been called "one of the most realistic scifi webcomics we've read in ages" by Lauren Davis of io9 and "a spectacular science fiction comic" by Phillipe LeBlanc of The Comics Beat. Titan was serialized online and in print by Study Group Comics, and Éditions Pow Pow published the book as a 200-page French-language graphic novel in 2017! The book had been nominated for four FIVE major prizes in Quebec: The Prix Bédélys QuébecPrix Réal-Fillion, Prix Des Libraries QuébecPrix BD des Collégiens and the Prix Aurora-Boréal!



You might have seen my freelance illustration work in the pages of The Portland MercuryCraft MagazinePapercutter, and The California Sunday. I'm also a designer, creating work for New York Review ComicsFloating World ComicsStudy Group ComicsLittlefour, and Scout Books.



A little over two years ago, I made the leap into being a full-time freelance creative! I've always made the majority of my comics and art "after hours," and it is incredible to be able to dedicate myself to it as my primary job for the first time in my life! I've already seen my productivity increase by a huge amount. In addition to my freelance work I'm hard at work on personal projects like Titan and I've been able to make time for unique projects like my Cent Jours de Montréal sketches. My current major project is 13e Avenue, a French-language YA graphic novel series which will be published by La Pastèque in 2018, along with lots of shorter works and other projects.



But with this freedom comes the well-known ups and downs of the freelance lifestyle! I've been lucky enough to have found some amazing clients already, but this work can be feast or famine at times. In order to help ballance things out, I'm turning to you to help me create more work, more often

How does this work?

Patreon is a platform where generous people like you can become patrons of the arts by directly supporting creators like me. If you have ever supported a Kickstarter campaign, you'll understand the basic idea of crowdfunding, but in this case it is smaller amounts over a longer period of time. You pick an amount you'd like to send me each month, and in return you gain access to Patreon-exclusive content (check the full list of perks below for details) and you'll have my eternal gratitude. You can change or cancel your patronage at any time, and you'll only be charged once a month at the amount you choose to give.



Other Creators Charge Per Comic, Why Aren't You Doing That?

While the majority of my creative energy is currently going into creating 13e Avenue, I've also got lots of little side projects going on too, from font design to printmaking and my daily sketches. I believe that a monthly contribution on your part will more accurately align with my various projects, which you will receive exclusive behind-the-scenes access to as they are created! 

Thank you so much for your interest in what I am doing. I am extremely excited to be dedicating more of my time to creative work in the coming years, and I couldn't do it without your enthusiasm and energy for my work. I hope you will consider pledging your support for me at a level you feel comfortable with, but no matter what I truly appreciate that you took the time to read through my page!

Oh yeah! Let's do this! If you like a personal touch, this is a great pledge level, limited to just 12 patrons. At this level you will not only receive access to the process posts and PDFs of my existing work, but I will send you an original sketch to you once per year! You can even make a request... Do you want a drawing of your favorite X-Man? No problem! A sketch of a bird! I got you! Some limitations apply, but I will work with you. You sketch, along with some bonus goodies will be sent to you on your birthday month.

My deep gratitude. If you missed the limited sketch tier (or if you just prefer not to receive something in the mail) but still want to get a little extra for your pledge, this is the level for you! In addition to the process posts and PDFs of my existing comics, you will receive monthly hi-res downloads of my digital art! That might include drawings based on movies or video games, special Titan art, superhero commissions, animal illustrations, or just about anything! There will be at least one hi-res download per month, and usually more!

Wow, this is getting serious! At this level I'll be able to secure a studio space for my creative work, meaning I won't be exclusively working in my bedroom and various cafes around town! To celebrate, I'll start a brand new project! What will it be? I'm not sure, but imagine something along the lines of Cent Jours de Montréal... Regular updates of spontaneous and fun art! Bird of the week? Album Cover of the day? Who knows... But it is sure to be fun!
