Project Summary:  "LOCUS - Archetype Implosion" is a creator-owned graphic novel series I am writing, penciling and inking all of the sequential artwork for it's creation. In order for it to be created quicker, I'm seeking your support to facilitate my focus on the first book's completion that I'll afterward self-publish. Unfortunately the comic book industry does not pay new unpublished creators any type of salary or wage to create their first book and thus is the reason it's so difficult for some new creators to finish their first polished works. Illustrating pages with this amount of detail is quite labor intensive. This is why patron support per page completed (1 page per month - with the goal of potentially completing 2 pages) would be so great. In return I offer exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the production process as the pages are created step by step.  Become a Patron! (direct link)


     The graphic novel I'm working on is titled LOCUS - Archetype Implosion a fantasy & sci-fi action-adventure story that takes place in another solar system with otherworldly beings, aliens, monsters and creatures in a ruthless battle over the fate of an environmentally vulnerable planet. It is a story of friendship and community in conflict with sinister tyrannical hierarchical forces. My goal is to symbolically address pertinent social awareness and environmental issues we face in this world today as individuals and as a collective humanity while offering new perspectives for transformative change.

                               




    I'm integrating into my story themes relating to environmental activism, renewable energy, anarchic perspectives, women's empowerment, entheogenic medicine (research M.A.P.S.), shamanism/gnosticism, respect of animal life, archetypal psychology, intentional community lifestyle, village building with natural material with a balance and symbiosis with sustainable technology.

"The future will be decided primarily by the changes that take place in the psyche of humanity, which is truly the world's pivot."

- Paul Levy, author of "Dispelling Wetiko - Breaking the Curse of Evil"





Below are finished sample pages 1-10 of the opening scene of the story. 





   





    

















    For all who are new to Patreon, how it works is, when you pledge your support at any of the teir levels, Patreon makes a deduction of that amount on the 5th of each month from your credit/debit card. A goal is set by each creator and any funding that is accrued in that month, even if it doesn't reach the goal amount, goes towards the creator's project production. There is always the option for any supporter to opt out at anytime, although the fundamental impact of this amazing platform is to offer the opportunity for enthusiastic great people who want to see artistic creations come to fruition.

    The creation of my graphic novel in these beginning stages is an entirely solo endeavor, which includes the writing of the story, the penciling, inking, lettering, and the hand coloring of each page. It's a lot of work that needs a significant amount of time to focus on getting it just right! Thanks so much in advance!
