My Story

My name is Eli Minaya. I'm an Artist (and sometimes Writer).

I've made a lot of Art in the pursuit of finding my voice and career path. That journey has lead me to work independently. First as a freelancer (which I still love to do) and then as an author and concept developer.

About My Work


Imaginary Things, Comics and Art

I've been making "Imaginary Things" for a few years now. Initially, they were a way for me to develop my visual language and as a tool, they were extremely useful. However, as that language developed, a story emerged. These "things" took on the shape of aphorisms, fables, and prayers. A greater personal context grew from that.

As many cultures had in the past, I began to associate these animals with concepts, ideas and the world around me. The writing that had always been part of my process for them suddenly became the little stories my characters told around the campfire. They had become the mythology of the World of Mirran; The Deep River and The City.

What you can expect from your Patronage

At the 1$ tier, you’re gonna get quite a bit in the way of;
  • PDFs of drawings and paintings of Imaginary Things.
  • See all content before everyone else does.
  • You will also receive installments of Mad City.
  • All of the content from the previous tier
  • As well as installments of Tornjak and the Myrahn Primer.   

In Mad City, we follow our protagonist "1988" as he arrives in a mysterious city landscape where he is; chased by assassins, finds mysterious objects and sometimes gets lost in huge piles of trash.


  • All of the content from the previous tier
  • As well as installments of Tornjak and the Myrahn Primer.            


Follow Tornjak and Karaya as they save the virtual world they live in from the world they've left behind.


At the 5$ tier, you receive all of the previous content as well as;
  • Unedited comic pages,
  • Sequential experiments
  • PSDs of comic pages and paintings
  • Process videos

At the 20$ tier, you will receive all of the previous content as well as;
  • A hand-drawn Imaginary Thing in the mail! (6x6” Pen and Ink on paper)              
At the 50$ tier, you will receive all of the previous content as well as;
  • A watercolor painting of an Imaginary Thing in the mail! (Various size, Watercolor on paper)  

   

All tiers receive Discord access with Tier-specific Roles


Over the last couple of years, I've gotten to be a part of some great independent projects; Angelarium, Judgement of Paris and others, and the direct interaction with the people who support those projects have had a direct impact on my life and creative process. Patreon will allow me to keep a place open for those people to show support, talk with me, and have a direct feed to the work I make for them.
