My name is Mike Majestic; art director for Theos KE Polemos, concept designer, and comic/animation illustrator with decades of experience. Those who have followed my work generally know me online by my studio's name Vulne Pro or by the sizable body of work for the Theos project (especially the FOIL designs). TKP is an original creator owned indy mecha noir sci-fi I.P. (originally intended as an animated series pitch) in the tradition of old school 80s cyberpunk/sci-fi anime and manga classics. I ultimately want to continue work on TKP, as well as other potential projects, so I'm finally going to take the plunge into Patreon in order to help keep the work going and transition through a rather difficult time.

I was working as a freelancer up until 2010 when I had to step away to care for my Father full time due to the beginning signs of dementia. During his care I never stopped producing work but taking on freelance was untenable so rather than blow deadlines I simply took what became a pretty long break. Taking on the job of being a caregiver can be exhausting however through good and bad times it was my pleasure to have took care of my Father all these years. Unfortunately dementia and various health issues finally claimed my Father and on July 3rd, I'm saddened to report he passed due to chronic heart failure.

Unfortunately this puts me in a difficult position having not worked during my time caring for him. When it comes to caring for a loved one with dementia you have little choice but to completely jump in, all hands on deck, and keep an eye on them 24/7, which is what I ultimately did. Well, now it's time to return to the fold as an illustrator full time and that's where Patreon comes in.

Lack of content and motivation to create the content isn't an issue, getting back on my feet maintaining bills after my Father's passing is. Your support will go into; utilities, food, four legged furry feline beast care, your basic not-starve or end up homeless bills. Covering that, naturally the money will also go into creating more content; upgrading computers, software, possible video content, anything to improve the work produced, etc. For the moment I'm going to try to begin simple with Patreon and expand (new tiers, types of content, etc) as I go. The bottom line is if you enjoy the kind of work Vulne Pro does with continued support there will be continued content because I simply love to create this kind of content as do those I have collaborated with over the years.



So, precisely what kind of content are we talking here? Ultimately I plan to continue to develop the visual design of the Theos KE Polemos project; location background art, new combat FOILs (mecha), vehicles, props, characters, general world building design. I will also be returning to Zbrush 3d modeling so 3d content will eventually become part of the work. Potential narrative sequential content (comics/manga) down the line as well. There will absolutely be work from other projects along with random illustration work but most of my content has revolved around TKP. Because I'm returning to this work fully after many years of focusing on my Father's care there's plenty to work on.



At the end of the day it's all about dreaming and making those dreams reality in your creative content. Let's all dream together.
