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 all the patron-only posts that come with your tier. 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 and effort 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.

Occasionally I have to upgrade, repair or replace my tools when they break or buy software licenses and all of that costs money. Your support helps me pay for those things.

What are rewards?

The rewards you get depend on the tier you've chosen. See the reward tiers on the right side of this page (or down below if you're on mobile) for all the details. :)

  • I 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 here on Patreon.
  • For postcard rewards I will need your shipping address. (Or you can opt out of receiving physical rewards, if you'd prefer.)



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