Hello!
Maarika here. I make cute sapphic art and comics, because I want there to be more positive representations of f/f relationships.


What's Patreon?
Patreon is THIS website - which is technically a membership platform. Many creators, including myself, share their content for free on the internet. Patreon was created so that people who enjoy that content could support creators directly on monthly basis by becoming their patrons.

How exactly does Patreon work?
It's up to you to choose how much you want to pledge. When you sign up to become a patron, you will be charged upon pledging, and after that on the 1st of each month. That's because once you pledge, you will get immediate access to my patron-only posts. You can also edit your pledge (to choose a different tier for example) and you can opt out any time you want.



Why do you need the money?
I put a lot of time into my art projects. A single comic page can take several days, a longer comic project weeks (that includes writing, researching, storyboarding, sketching, inking, coloring etc). I love doing it, but it is still hard work. I often sacrifice the time I could be working on my comics to get other projects done, like client work. Patreon lets me spend more time on my own projects which is the main reason why I'm here.

Although I already have almost all the tech, software and equipment I need, sometimes I have to upgrade, repair or replace things (like my mouse which is currently dying). Those things cost money.

I was told there would be rewards?

YES. Since Patreon is basically a membership platform, all patrons get exclusive access to my patron posts/feed. See the reward tiers on the right side of this page (or down below if you're on mobile) for all the details.

  • I usually post most of my rewards right here on Patreon (like WIPs, sketches, early access to art etc).
  • To deliver some rewards (like downloads etc), I usually send a message to patrons with the download link, so be sure you check your messages.
  • For postcard rewards I will need your shipping address. Again, I'll contact you about it when the time comes. :)



Have questions?
There's an indepth Patreon FAQ for all the Patreon-related questions, check it out!
