Howdy!

Who I am and What I do:

My name is Katherine Ellis, and I'm the creator of Crankrats, a Gaslamp fantasy web-comic that's been running for 6 years, and NIX, a comedy fantasy comic that is Patreon exclusive! 

You can find the comic here: Crankrats Main Site

Or on my Deviant Art: Sio64


What's the story about?
Crankrats is the story of Madelene Morely, a young woman who fled from her war-torn city as a young girl, leaving her life (and more) behind her. Returning to the city to sing for a living, she’s dropped into a dystopian nightmare with danger around every turn, from the bomb-laden airships in the sky, to the toxic smog that floods the city floor and the rumours that an old threat, the Crankrats, aren't as dead as they seem. To make matters worse, her new colleagues are nuts, the barman is a jerk and she's being constantly judged by a moody mechanical cat. What could go wrong?



Why i'm on Patreon:

This comic originally started as a learning project and it has expanded into a beast of a project! Alongside it is the new webcomic NIX, which you can only read here! And now here's your chance to be part of the process! 

By contributing a monthly fee of your choice to this project you will be helping me release pages quicker than ever before, (Which is dandy as Crankrats is one long story!) and I will be able to give you more dedicated update days. (It currently updates 1-2 a week, and NIX updates every wednesday) You will also receive Patreon-only rewards, be able to input on designs and chat! and once we reach the first milestone it will give me time to unlock more goodies for you.

You will also have my undying love, forever!

(And my pups!)

Goals
$213 of $400 per month
The first stretch goal will help me to cover my day-to-day expenses. Rent, food and the ever important internet. If we can smash this target I will start to upload (Patreon only) concept art for the comic i've wanted to write alongside Crankrats for your review and imput, as well as increased page uploads, so let's get going!
