I'm Allie MacAlister, an illustrator & cartoonist based in Ottawa, Canada.

I create artwork on freelance commission for clients big and small, as well as create products that I sell at local craft shows and on Etsy.

Currently, most of my time for illustration goes towards commercial contracts and commissions for clients. I would like to have the opportunity to create more of my own content, such as:

  • autobiographical and journal comics
  • new products, art prints & digital downloads
  • videos on YouTube: Art tutorials, discussion on art as a business and other hobby videos
  • short fiction comics, including stories about a vagabond stumbling onto an abandoned haunted tourist trap and tales of a witch opening a brewpub for wandering adventurers;
  • a graphic novel project I’ve been working on since college about old gods and new magic on the maritime coast;
  • live streaming art events with Patron perks;
  • … and more!
Support from Patreon allows me to focus on these projects, and reward supporters while doing so.

So, what's in it for you?
Becoming a monthly Patron of my work gets you peeks into my process, chatter about being a self-employed creator, periodic giveaways, guides, tutorials and more. Options from $1 to $5 per month are available, with increasing perks per tier. 

Patreon is a digital tip jar that allows creators like me to pursue more of the projects that my fans want to see - comics, illustration, storytelling, and much more.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you'll join me on this exciting journey!
10 of 50 patrons
If I reach 50 patrons, I will start a weekly Patron-exclusive Livestream that will take place on a weekday evening. Patrons can request sketch commissions for a reduced rate, watch me work on my project of the moment, or request fan artwork, and more! Themes will vary depending on the week.

I would love to reach this goal, as community engagement is one of my favourite parts of making art! Help me get there!
