Hi!  My name is Ann Foerster but online I usually go by a-ka-neArt after a Japanese name quiz I took in high school.  I'm an artist working in comics/manga, animation, and video games. I work primarily in Clip Studio Paint. I am currently teaching myself the Unity & Unreal engines, Blender, and animation.
I have been drawing my entire life and coloring digitally since 2006!
Why I'm on Patreon
I am on Patreon to fund my artwork and my many projects.  My dream is to be able to support myself solely on my art and graphic novels.


What I am doing
  • Numerous graphic novel/comic projects!
    • A free-form practice comic for getting smaller ideas out there
    • A medium project called Syrens, with which I have writing and tactical partners
    • Two large ongoing projects: Triune and Nox Aeternitatis/Eien no Yoru
  • Concept art & original illustrations
  • Gowns and dresses based on bettas or other fish
  • Streams and painting timelapse videos, some crafting and office guide videos
  • Original music in FL Studio
What’s in it for you?
  • Exclusive first looks at work in progress and finished artwork by 2 days
  • Downloadable content and free merch!
    • Monthly finished individual artwork or comics (Standard definition or high definition)
    • Welcome and anniversary bookmarks, postcards, prints, or posters

    • Monthly PSD and .lip files with layers (after goal is met)
    • The original streams in real time (large mp4 download) monthly
  • The ability to provide feedback on artwork or story progression
  • Liklinesses or custom characters in published work or games
  • Coupons to my online store and notifications of promotions on other sites
