Hello!  I'm Beckaroo, I am a writer and artist based in AZ and I'm working on "The Phantom of the Opera," a graphic novel, based on the 1910 book by Gaston Leroux. I am a published author and illustrator of Joseph, the Dreamer (available anywhere books are sold!) and I've been working in comics and illustration my whole life. I have also worked in theater for a long time, making props and also poster art and coloring books, too.  

I've been an obsessive Phantom fan my whole life and I've always wanted to see an adaptation that really felt like the book.  I've been sketching this and dreaming of it and working on it off and on FOREVER!!!  Finally I decided to just do it because I know there are tons of others out there, like me, who want to see this book.  So buckle up! This book will have all the good bits that are usually cut from adaptations: the Persian, the Phantom's torture chamber, the safety-pin--they are all in there. This is a dream project for me and it's the book I've always wanted to see. The pages are released to everyone on my tumblr and instagram pages but they are going to be gathered and printed as a book in early 2020. (possibly earlier, with your help!)



I currently split my time between working on "The Phantom of the Opera" and doing other freelance projects and working in props.  It's a privilege to be working full-time in the arts but my dream is to only be making books.  With your help I can work on this book full-time--it's really up to you! I want this book to be the best it can be and I want to keep making as much work for you as I can--so if you feel like supporting me financially you can do it here and in exchange you'll get loads of EXCLUSIVE BONUS EXTRAS!!!

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS.You pledge to donate a certain amount of money per month. In return, depending on how much you choose to donate, you can get:
  • "Phantom of the Opera" pages as soon as I've finished them, so much sooner and faster than everyone else. I'm about 30 (And growing!) pages ahead of the publicly posted pages.
  • Early updates and announcements!  (The newest scoop on when I launch a kickstarter and begin the publication process.)
  • Exclusive art!
  • Sketches, doodles, works-in-progress!
  • Teasers and previews!
  • Discounts on the final printed book and other merch!
  • My eternal love and gratitude!

If you do choose to support me financially here on Patreon, THANK YOU! I love you a lot because you are why I can live my dream. Every little bit counts and your support means the world to me.
