About

I'm Rhea Ewing, a full-time artist making awesome things for awesome folks like you. If my work is valuable to you in any way, please become a Patron! You'll be joining a community of folks whose curiosity and dedication make my work possible.

What I do:

FINE: a comic about gender
FINE: a comic about gender is a ~350 page graphic novel about gender identity in the Midwest. It's based off of interviews with all sorts of people from Ohio to Minnesota. In total, 56 people of various ages, races, abilities, and gender identities were interviewed. The result is a conversation about gender that spans geography, generations, and communities.



Right now the interviews and major editing is complete, and I am in the arduous process of drawing it. I've hired comic artist Sally Scott to ink some of the pages, and a portion of all my Patreon pledges get set aside to pay her for her work.



This project matters to me because, as a queer kid growing up in rural areas, it was very difficult to find information about people like me. This experience impressed upon me the importance of creating connections and hearing other people's stories.




Artwork Inspired by Nature

In addition to queer comics, I also make nature-inspired artwork using traditional and contemporary drawing and printing techniques.

I like to get lost in tiny little details.


Right now, my fine arts work is on the backburner while I focus on FINE, but if my patreon gets enough traction it'll give me the resources to continue this work.
