Hi! I'm Allison MacAlister.
You can call me Allie!
I'm an illustrator based in Ottawa, Canada.
You can see my website over here.
I love making art-related paper & goods products in my home workshop that I sell at local craft shows as well as on my Etsy shop.
I also have a YouTube channel, which I'll be populating regularly with speedpaints, tutorials and advice for creative professionals.
I love my work.
I draw, I make things, and I work really hard to build a living out of it.
So then, why are we here?
I have to take on a lot of client work and contracts to make my ends meet, and many projects have sat in my pipeline collecting dust for months. Even years!
Some of these projects include:
- more non-fiction mini-comics like my Beer and Anxiety minis
- short fiction comics (so many ideas… mostly in the urban fantasy genre!)
- a webcomic called Reef about old gods and new magic on the maritime coast
How Patreon Works:
Becoming a Patron grants you access to work I won't be posting anywhere else. The various reward tiers are explained on the right sidebar. You’ll notice that I give a lot even to $1+ Patrons - this is because even $1 a month goes a LONG way towards my goals, and I would ideally have many $1 Patrons in my audience! <3
Where’s the money go?
Think of Patreon as a digital tip jar. The money made through Patreon helps me to do what I love for a living. I'll be able to pursue my larger comic and publishing projects, create speedpaint videos for youTube, make new products for my shop at a faster rate, take on less NDA work that I can’t show to anyone, and bring myself closer to my goals.
And hey, just so you know...
Patreon is for bonus content and periodic freebies to be shared with folks who are willing to support me a little extra.
My completed works will always be available to view or purchase for everyone, patrons and non-patrons alike.
If you would rather not support my Patreon but wish to support me in other ways, the best way is to like and share my work on social media! It means the world to me.
Thank you for reading! <3
