What is Patreon?
It's similar to Kickstarter, but instead of one project, you're supporting ongoing efforts like webcomics, freedom for a creator to just create and experiment, and you get all the Behind-The-Scenes work and personal connection with the creators.

What is Ray Dillon???

For the past 15 years I've been a full-time freelancer working for every major comics publisher in various areas and mediums, tv shows (HBO's "Game of Thrones," Ridley Scott's "Prophets of Science Fiction; The Science Channel) movies (The Brass Teapot; Magnolia Pictures), gaming, trading cards, and more. And while working on projects and for clients like those is amazing sometimes, it's just not the same as creating worlds and characters myself, which is what I've loved to do since I was a wee lad in the middle of nowhere, Kansas. I'm also husband/inker/colorist/letterer to comic artist Renae De Liz, and father to 3 wild boys, Tycen (12), Drake (5), and Porter (1/2) and a couple of Halloween-themed cats (one black, one orange). We lived on the coast of Maine, but recently moved to a mountain in Souther California.

Writing was my passion even before I was an artist. I've written 4 novels, several comics, graphic novels, a screenplay, short stories, but they were all collecting dust for many years as I devoted all of my time to paying the bills with freelance art and taking care of my growing family. 

"A non-writing writer is a monster courting insanity." ~Franz Kafka

I love that quote because it perfectly describes how I've felt for over a decade and especially lately as ideas frantically bounce around in my heading desperate to get out!

So, please help me avoid insanity and focus this energy on turning these into finished projects! All work and no play make Ray go ... something, something (points for catching the reference!


Be a part of 5 Projects! - Go Behind the Scenes!

You're not just getting 1 project here, but 5 actively developing projects. I like to bounce around depending on what excites me that day, but I'm also very dedicated to completing all of these projects. So you'll be seeing daily updates on one of the projects listed as well as sketches, scripts, works in progress, and thoughts on current and new projects as they pop into my noggin'. I'll also be more available on Patreon than I am on other social media, so you can chat with me about anything!

They won't happen overnight!
Obviously, unless I hit my ultimate goal of full-time creator-owned, I still have to pay the bills with freelance work. But, I'm used to having 10-15 projects all the time. Right now we have just 1, so I'll have more time to pursue creator owned. Plus, what you see below I was able to accomplish with typically just 15 minutes a day. With your help I can only imagine how much can get done by having more time to devote to it! But, for now, this campaign will be more about the journey and experiencing the development of these projects than the final project, BUT as they are completed you'll own those too! 

1-ON-1 ART CRITIQUES, TUTORIALS, CAREER ADVICE, JOBS INFO!
You're an artist and want me to check out your work, give feedback (kind & helpful, not harsh!), want advice on how to advance your career and how to get art jobs! OKAY! I'll message with you personally! I've had success and love to pay it forward! I'll also share YOUR WORK *at least once every month you support* to 9,500+ potential fans through my social networks!

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!

Goals
29% complete
This might seem like a little thing, but for someone who has been piling on freelance jobs for as long as I have to pay the bills, it would be huge to pay off a monthly bill with my own creations! :D And you have to make $100 on Patreon before money is released to you.
