Hello rascals, rogues and rabble-rousers!

I'm Max Bare and I make comics. 



Why Patreon?
Right now I'm working on a brand-spankin' new series with children's book writer and illustrator, Alex Willan. The series is called "Scally-Ho!" and chronicles the adventures of the Scallywags.

"What's a Scallywag," you inquire?

The Scallywags are a band of rogue kids and one chicken who charter the unchartered aboard the Rapscallion, their trusty sea vessel.
"Scally-Ho!" is an all-ages story for explorers young and old (even old geezers).

Why Patreon??
Oh yeah. As an artist, I am also an illustrator and designer who drifts in and out of the freelance world to keep the old ship of career passions and dreams afloat. I also believe sharing is caring so I use Patreon to pull the curtain back on my process, thoughts and experience, more so than my other blogs and social outlets. Patreon is an amazing tool to bridge creators with their supporters and fans at a more intimate level. 

How Patreon?
When you support me on Patreon, you get an extra special peek at exclusive concept sketches, process work and sneak previews into the books I create that I don't post anywhere else. Also all proceeds help me with the printing of said books, other material and support me to create more independent work.
And you get a warm fuzzy feeling. Like a bunny wearing a hat like a dorkus malorkus.

Peep my "Rewards" section for the other cool stuff you can get!


A lil' more about lil' ol' me...
I was raised a little doodler in Northern Ohio, artistically trained by my mom, comic books and ninja turtles, formally educated by SCAD in Georgia and voyaged to Chicago to make my mark on the world. 

Some of my latest books:

I pencil, ink and pedicure Mystery Afoot, created by Lowcarbcomedy.
Bigfoot and Nessie solve Mysteries 'nuff said.
It's like X-Files with more Bigfoot and hard drinking.



Sour Milk, a comic series about vampires, cereal and sadness.
My first as sole writer.

 

On occassion I collaborate with Melissa Sue Stanley on oddball comics.
This one was called "Doug Hates Ghostbusters".
He has since seen the new Ghostbusters, and thought it was good.


Thanks for reading and for your support!
