Hi! My name is Rebecca and I'm an artist and writer living in the south of England. I'm currently working on a cyberpunk novel and webcomic, Wired, with many more projects in the pipeline in addition to running a YouTube channel where I post timelapse videos of my art progress. I enjoy drawing androids, monsterboys, aliens and more!


- My Projects

Wired is a story set in the sprawling metropolis of Aethercove, where humans and androids walk side-by-side. Androids are possessions - created to be sentient, but not permitted free will. Amid this chaotic society, close friends Rikani Sheridan and Casey Knight share a cramped apartment in the rundown Sector C. Money is tight, but they're happy enough. There's only one problem. Employment, money, a home - they're all reserved only for humans. And Rikani is not a human.
He just pretends he is.

Breakwater is a novel aimed at a slightly younger audience, set in a fantasy world of emerging steampunk technology and hidden magic. Eighteen-year-old Saralynne Redfern encounters a fifty-foot merman held captive in the depths of her home city and while dealing with the chaos of her own life as a young member of the nobility, she has to hatch a plan to rescue her newfound finned friend before it's too late. Meanwhile in the imperial palace, a young footman discovers he possesses abilities long ago banned by the reigning monarchy which put his life in direct danger - and he's not the only one keeping secrets.

Constellations is a space opera that takes place in a future time of interstellar travel. On the backwater planet of Ethrin, the part-human part-alien Fitzpatrick family share a cosy (read: cramped) apartment with their ten-feet-tall four-armed friend Cinnamon. Kieran and Fiora have spent years trying to save for a cure for their dying son, when the perfect solution seems to drop into their laps. The only problem is, they're going to have to do a little law-breaking to access it. OK, maybe more than a little.
It's a good job Cinnamon is a fast driver.


- Why Patreon?
The majority of my work is available online for free, including my upcoming webcomic, but there are ongoing costs involved with the production of my current projects. Patreon allows me to give people the option of helping with those - as much or as little as they would like - in return for some exclusive goodies. Any income received from this page goes directly towards website and store maintenance fees, print/merch runs and convention costs.


- How does it work?
Currently, there is only one tier - $1+. This is because I would like to maintain this page as a 'tip-jar sketchblog'. My Patreon's public feed will mirror my other social media while once a month all processed patrons will receive a reward pack with sketches, previews, store discount codes and extracts from my written projects.

There is no set posting schedule, hence I give patrons the freedom to pay as much or as little as they would like, for as long as they would like. I really appreciate any support of any level! The encouragement of my online followers keeps me motivated and I'll work hard to ensure I keep producing high-quality illustrations, comic work and novels!

Thank you so much!
