Hi, I'm Kristen. I am a graphic designer from Newcastle, Australia. In my spare time I draw comics of my dog Holly, a Rough Collie (you know, a "Lassie" dog). I try to depict the sweetness and funniness of day to day life with dogs, I feel like a lot of people can relate.

I've set up this page to help cover the costs of Holly's treat addiction. She's gotta get that jerky. Seriously, I'm pretty sure roo jerky is like doggie crack.

I try to put out at least 1 comic a week on my Facebook page and blog, for special occasions I'll post extra. For example, in the lead up to Christmas I created a cartoon for each of the 12 days before Christmas called 12 Dogs of Christmas. I also have an online store where people can by some Collie merch.

My schedule at the moment means that I post a comic on Friday evenings (New South Wales time), and I draw whenever I get a chance.

Sometimes it gets hard to find time to draw, I work full time and there is a lot to do at home. Some extra cash would help cover expenses, and would go towards getting some new equipment that will make drawing easier. My comics will always be free for people to read, but if you would like to support what I do by contributing via Patreon, that would be great! Having supporters means that I can spend more time making comics and drawings, as well as focusing on some other projects that I'm hoping to bring to life.

My goals are:
Jerky Addicts Anonymous

Holly's roo jerky addiction is not cheap. She is nuts for that stuff.
New Equipment
My goal is to save enough money to buy some new equipment, a new computer would go a long way. This is my most immediate goal. A new set up could help go a long way for the quality and quantity of my comics.
A Holly the Collie book
I would one day like to publish a children's (and adult's!) book. This is a long way down the track though, years maybe. But hopefully, some day, I'll be able to make it happen.

PS: For one time donations, you can select a pledge and then select 'no reward'. You can cancel after the first payment.

This earns you a special art card with a hand written thank you message (just warning you now my handwriting isn't great!). Plus by becoming a Patron you will gain exclusive access to Holly the Collie content not available anywhere else.
