Welcome to my Patreon!

You're here because you...

A- Are a super-awesome-amazing person who definitely wants to sign up to support me.

B- Are a super-awesome-amazing person who maybe wants to sign up to support me.

C-Are a super-awesome-amazing person who is just looking around.


So let me tell you what this is all about.
Patreon is a platform to support your favorite content creators (i.e. me)
I am a purple-haired cartoonist, illustrator, graphic novelist-hopeful and sometimes comedian.
(I'm also a crazy dog-mommy, wife, good cook, Aquarius, youngest child, bad swimmer and a closet metal-chick.)

My comic strip is called, Violets Aren't Blue, it's a comedic take on everyday life. Violet (uh, me), DH and Squid the dog are the main characters.
But I do lots of guest-star stips and stand-alones. Not to mention everyone's favorite farm-based sub-comic, Denise the Self-Esteem Pig.



What's in it for you? 
When you become my Patron you get some really great perks. 
Not only do you get to see all the comics, doodles, and news first, but you get custom illustrations, guest-star comics starring you, illustrated interviews about you on my site, "for a good cause" comics you request, and of course the monthly themed illustrations.
I think up a theme every month and you can request anything you want within that theme. 
 Some past themes...


  • June- Animal pun song titles



  • July- Summer fun



  • August- Hidden Punchline



  • September- The line you quote most



  • October- Creepy Cute




What if you can only pledge $1?

That's still great!
Dude, you pledging anything a month is helpful. All I have ever wanted is to make the world a happier place. I know that sounds corny, but it's true. And I have found the best way I personally can make the world happier is by drawing funny comics that make people smile. So I'm not going to convert all cars to run on sugar cane, or perfect in-lab meat creation (yes it's a real thing) but I can draw things and make people laugh. And that can't possible be a bad thing.

P.S. Yes, I called you "dude". But that's because I grew up in California in the 90's, and to me "dude" is a gender-neutral salutation that denotes enthusiasm.

Monthly themed rewards will be illustrated in black and white with grayscale texture, like this woman here, who is very happy with her fingernails. 


Patrons this level are entered into the monthly guest-star comic drawing.

INSANITY!
$100 or more per month 0 patrons
I don't even know what to offer for this high a patronage. What do you think would be good? I'll take suggestions. But please, if you're considering supporting me at this level, do. Please do, and we can work out a reward that will be almost as awesome as you.
Goals
$234 of $1,000 per month

If the truly SPECTACULAR fans of my work help me get just $1000 a month, I will be able to sustain myself and not juggle three other jobs in addition to drawing the comics. I want to make a true career out of bringing happiness to other people's lives. I think that would be amazing.
