Hi! I'm Alakotila. I make queer sci-fi and fantasy comics with sweet romance and some adventure!

My work is character-focused, and I love found family, friendships, and romances. I am a queer creator, and I write majority queer casts -- I think we should be able to see ourselves in the genres we love! I currently write two comics, and just finished one which will go to print in 2019 after a successful Kickstarter this spring!

My work tends to feature a fish-out-of-water character in their late 20s to early 30s who has made a drastic life decision, brought to it by fate, hard work, or both! Follow along as they figure out their places in their respective worlds!



Rewards here are typically early access or are Patreon exclusives, so I hope you will enjoy the content along the way of supporting my ability to create more comics. Your support here means rewards for you such as early access, behind-the-scenes work, and exclusive content, while also bringing us collectively towards great comic-focused goals that will allow me to set aside more time for comics, and thus can do more and more for each story!

I appreciate each and every patron. I been able to steadily update Spidersilk with patron support, and we are moving towards making Sunlit Silence double updates feasible as well. I have been able to write short stories -- two years worth of them, and counting -- due to patron interest and support!

For that, I cannot thank you enough. If you are new to my work, please scroll down to learn a bit more about my projects!



COMICS

Spidersilk
Desperate to find a new home, an ex-soldier falls in with a group of thieves. The thieves' working relationship with the city guard comes under fire when a threat from outside the wall appears, slowly pulling their delicate system of alliances apart. Despite this, Prentice thinks he may have found home. Perhaps more...

Spidersilk was launched in 2011 and is now a part of the Ink Drop Collective. 



Sunlit Silence:

Falkner made a deal to give up on their dreams if they were not recruited for an airship crew within ten years. After ten years of working as a caravan scout, Falkner makes good on that and pursues something within the city limits. However, that very thing leads Falkner right back to their dreams after an unexpected encounter...




FELL SWOOP:
A medic and his team encounter a lone scavenger foraging in the ruins. After an attack on the mission party, the pair find themselves alone and drawn to each other, despite the masks they each wear.

This queer sci fi romance is now complete! It can be read on WebToons or tapas.io, and will be printed later this year!




COLORING BOOKS

I also make coloring books -- patrons often get the earliest views on any coloring book project I am working on! Both are available in my store!



ENCHANTMENT

Enchantment is a queer romantic fantasy coloring book featuring 30 pages of original art (25 by myself, and 5 by two guest artists). The book features a variety of soft romantic scenes, loud and fun playful moments, and more!



GUARDIAN

Guardian is a fantasy armor coloring book featuring women! There are thirty pages of illustrations of women in fantasy armor, as the heroes of their own stories!
