What is Inward Bound?
It's a weekly webcomic, Inward Bound, about Iris, a twentysomething curmedgeon whose inner demon takes control of her body. With the help of her imaginary friend, Emilin, the two of them must embark on an inner journey to save Iris's sanity. The comic focuses on using the power of friendship to battle anxiety and depression and inner growth.
Inward Bound started officially in 2015, however I've been working on the story since I was 12 (so a long time ago). Emilin was doodled on pieces of homework, backpacks, and walls, but I never knew how to put her into a story. I designed Iris while working at a restaurant, fresh out of college. The chemistry between Emilin and Iris intrigued me so I worked on a proper story to put them in.
What else do you do?
I also draw really weird illustrations that are either really creepy, or really funny. Basically it's how I get the weird thoughts out. I also draw personal comics now and then. I work full time as a graphic designer, but would some day like to do comics full time.
Why am I here?
I love creating, connecting with people, sharing my process and skills. I also like not stressing over bills. Through Patreon, I'm hoping to be able to ease some of the stress and also have fun with sharing my art with all of you fantastic people!
What are some goals?
- Help offset some of the costs of equipment, programs etc.
- Inward Bound is currently updated once a week on Mondays. If this goal is met, pages will go up to twice a week!
- Start doing Inward Bound in color
I love what I do, and I want to share it with you all!
You're the embodiment of a million rainbows!
