HI GUYS!

I'm taking an indefinite break for a while for personal circumstances (I'll reveal at a later date!) I've changed the campaign settings so ill no-longer be taking payments. Existing patrons will be sent a special gift from me (give me your addresses via the email address I provided in the latest update!) for your awesome support over the last year - you guys have been totally amazing!

I'm going to keep my page here incase I start again in the future. I'll still be working on my comics, but it'll be updates when I have the time, and I won't be working to a set schedule.

I'll post updated links to the comics in weeks to come.

ALL WILL BE REVEALED SOON, ON MY TWITTER AND TUMBLR ACCOUNTS!  :)


SUNRISE
is a wordless half-comic-half-storybook creation I've made, which seems to have captured the hearts of at least a couple of hundred people in the last year or so, which is a nice feeling.


SUNRISE is currently free to read online, panel-by-panel, but is also available in print, and digitally from services like Comixology - but, being small press, it really is a labour of love. Any money I make from SUNRISE usually goes straight back into having the next chapter printed, art materials for other projects and website costs. I'd love to be able to concentrate more on my personal comics - and I'd love to have them all available for free, but I also need to focus on paid work to cover my living costs!

And this is where you come in.

I'm not asking for money every page - I don't think that's fair, or affordable for everyone. So, what I propose is, if you want to support me, then all you need to do is give me a small donation once a month :) In return - I put my comics up on here in weekly digests (which makes them easier to find!) AND you get access to my Patreon-exclusive comic 'Lupin!' - a diary comic about my eccentric dog, Lupin. ($1 Patrons get access to Lupin! only, but you can still read the rest for free online :)) How does that sound? 


The bigger your donation, the better the rewards get too! It's a really good way to get some commissioned art from me every month, or to hire me for your web comic strip too :) 

(Please note - for the larger rewards, there is a waiting period of 1 month, as Patreon typically collects donations at the end/start of the month, and not immediately upon pledging)

So, if you think that sounds fair, or if you are a lovely, kind hearted soul, who wants to make life a little less complicated for another person, then this Patreon is for you :) Check out the Pledge options and the milestone goals before you decide to become a Patron - if it isn't for you, then feel free to visit my Etsy Store or Redbubble store, and hopefully there's something you'd like there instead :)

Thankyou for taking the time to read my incredibly long ramble! I hope you have a lovely day :)

A warm fuzzy feeling inside - a bit like when you're wrapped in a duvet on a freezing cold winter's night, but you've trapped the heat in such a way, you don't even notice the snow falling :) I'll put your name (and website!) on a 'Special Thanks To...' page on my website ($1 = 60p)

All the above and I'll be posting up monthly digests of all my illustrations and comics.

You get everything from the previous rewards - but you'll also get access to videos of me working on my digital comics or illustrations (not live streaming just yet!) considering I've never recorded myself drawing before... this could be quite entertaining, and maybe a little educating! ($5 = £3)

Wow! That's some generosity right there! You get all of the previous rewards, AND a 20% discount code for my Etsy store, so should you wish to buy a finished copy of any issue of SUNRISE that's available, or some other Merch - you can get some money off!

Please note; You must be a paying patron for at least 1 month before you receive the discount code - this is a useable code for the foreseeable future, even after you stop your patronage!  It's an investment! ($10 = £6)

:O! You get all of the previous rewards, AND I will doodle a small digital sketch just for you every month! ($20 = £12)

(These sketches are not to be used for personal profit)

Please note; You must be a paying patron for at least 1 month before you receive your sketch! This is due to the way Patreon charges you at the end of each month - as advised by Patreon.
