Ello! Kudos for clicking that link! If you’re reading this that means you either read DDWG on SmackJeeves / my main site; or you know me as ClauseArt on tumblr!

So what is DDWG?

DDWG or Damsels Don’t Wear Glasses is an ongoing webcomic by J . Alice Bown. (That’s me!)

The story follows Lave Faraday and her day to day life in the city of Persephone, where magic is mundane, ‘monsters’ are the majority, and natural humans are a dime a dozen. Her job as a social server is tough, and tends to dial up the hospital bills, but there are worse things than being paid to fight bad folk. Like child care…

Why Patreon?

So like many of my fellow artists and freelance content creators I have joined the ranks of Patreon to try and turn my passion into a living. This is my first attempt at making any kind of income with my art, it’s both exciting and scary, but after spending my early twenties hopping from retail job to retail job, I finally felt brave enough to make the plunge!

Funding Goals.

My main goal with Patreon is to reach a monthly minimum wage so I can work on my art full time. Turning my hobby into a paid job would allow me to produce more content for the comic, and allow me to work on some of my other creative projects. One of my main goals right now is to raise enough funds for DDWG to reach the glorious tier of shelf-filler! (aka an actual book, that you can actually hold)

This story is my baby, and I hope with all my heart to able to tell it!
