OH HEY THERE! My name is Tabby, and I am a digital artist; creating art for fantastic clients, making tribute pieces to my favorite games and shows, and creating a well received personal comic.
In the past, I have created comics based off of my (then) long distance relationship, and with them gained a good amount of new friends / followers. Creating the "slice of life" comic based on my relationship was a fun and easy way to document my life, as well as connect to my viewers. With that relationship ended, and my ldr comics continuing to be popular, I felt a disconnect. Last year I started an overly ambitious project of creating a fully edited daily comic for a year. But I fell behind after moving and my anxiety and feelings of failure kept me from picking back up. It's been a long time coming, but I've recollected myself and created a less stressful work pace!

WAIT! A COMIC!? Yes! Working around my full time job, I plan on starting with a diary comic with a speed art/vlog to accompany it – once a week. Both will be uploaded to Patreon every Friday and then will be available on other sites the following day. This schedule will eventually change, as I plan on making more comics for each goal we meet here – going up to 3-4 comics a week. This will help me balance work / life / and art without getting overwhelmed and feeling pressured like last year. Not only will this continue to push me as an artist, but it will again be a way of documenting this chapter in my life. Slice of life comics have always been appealing to me, they open up lives of the creators to the readers and allow us all to connect to each other. And as an artist, that is what I want to be able to do - connect to people (connecting to people via making comics about my weird life).

WHY PATREON? I have always seen Patreon as a tip jar for creators - if you dig what you see, then you are free to contribute however much you like monthly. This monthly payment will not only help me financially (while working my retail job and currently saving) but will also allow me to have more time to take on larger projects and do more art giveaways instead of spending that time doing commissions to try to get that extra needed buck (and order more pizza...because let's be honest here, one can never order TOO much pizza). 

WHAT YOU GET IN RETURN! Aside from my undying love and appreciation, as a supporter you get access to all of my sketch posts /updates and my full comic before it is posted at the end of each week on tumblr/twitter. You also get your name listed in a supporter link on my blog as well as voting privileges for a monthly print - which one random supporter will have raffled off to them. Higher contributors can get access to psd. files, monthly PATREON exclusive postcards (US only) and themed prints (international). I will also start doing what will be random art streams, with free sketches for contributors and open up custom art/print tiers at certain goal levels (if you guys are into that sorta thing).

BUT TABBY! I WANT TO READ THE COMIC BUT AM UNABLE TO CONTRIBUTE! Don't fret my friend! This comic is not a Patreon exclusive. I will post on ALL of my social media sites the following day of the Patreon post. Patreon is basically going to be for anyone wanting to toss a few bucks my way if they like my work, those who like seeing WIP files or for those who want monthly art regardless of if commissions are open or not!

All in all, setting up this patreon is still new to me. There will be a ton of updates and changes to come I am sure! But for now thank you for stopping in, reading, spreading the word, or contributing! 
 
ANY amount of support, no matter how little, will help! <3
