Welcome to our Patreon page!

On camping trip years ago, we met our nephew for the first time.  He took to Magnus, our English Mastiff, and they were best friends exploring the woods and going on adventures. Simon and I joked about what if he were our son and what kind of parents we'd be.  We had a great weekend and left inspired to turn this idea into something.  We talked about how growing up gay had been difficult and how it would have been easier to see gay people represented more often.  This inspired us to create an inclusive family comic that could have fit in with the newspaper comics we read growing up.  It may be too late for us, but for a whole new generation of LGBTQ+ youth, maybe it would make a difference.  After months of concepts and planning and we released our first strip on August 8th, 2014. Fast forward to today, we're now raising our nephew and living together as a family <3

We have a life goal to turn AJ & Magnus into our full time project.  Currently, we make our living from contract work which has us working long and odd hours.  With your support, we'd be able to give ourselves a more standard work schedule and financial stability to allow us more time to spend with our little guy as well as create more AJ & Magnus content.

We know money is tight for everyone, that's why we ask for a dollar.  A dollar isn't much by itself, but when enough people believe our work is worth a buck, it can add up quickly and make a huge difference!  We believe representation matters and when you show support for our work, it not only allows us to share this message, it supports our little family and we're very grateful for all of it. <3

Thank you and BIG HUG!
