Hello! My name is Tara O'Connor, and I draw comics. In addition to drawing comics, I also teach them.  If I'm not doing either of those things, I'm probably working on some illustrations. I'm a weather nerd in my spare time and an appreciator of fine beards, one in particular. On any given day there's a 90% chance that every meal consumed was cereal. 

I started drawing comics as more than a hobby in 2010 when I released my first mini-comic Puddles.
















Well, after that I was hooked and have been drawing comics ever since!In 2015, I published my first full-length graphic novel called Roots, which was a travelogue about my journey to Ireland after a breakup to "find myself" and to further explore my ancestry. It was nominated by Comics Alliance for Best Biographical Comic of 2015!

Currently, I'm working on a graphic novel with Oni Press called The Altered History of Willow Sparks due out in the spring of 2017! I've received the go-ahead from my editor to post some sneak peeks, (non-spoilery of course) and some pages from the previous 3 drafts of the story. In addition to Willow Sparks, I also have a few other ideas that I've been working on. And that's, of course, where you come in! I started this Patreon in hopes of helping me focus on JUST comics. Every little bit helps and I'm so tremendously gracious for all ofyou. Thank you!

Also, if you want to poke around my site at some of the other comics and illustrations I've done, have a look! There you'll find wee previews of most of my published comics.

As far as timelines for rewards go, I'll do the updates once a month with all the bells and whistles. I'm not sure how that's utilized through patreon, but I will keep you all posted on when to expect your goodies! :) Thanks everyone, you're brilliant!
