Hey there! I'm Emily, a.k.a Bittermause. I'm an animation student and indie comic artist.
For roughly ten years I've been dabbling in the web comic scene, with past works such as my first solo series, Alien Drugged, and collaborating with my best friend Yuki, as a writer for Gorge.  I enjoy creating stories that maintain themes of modern fantasy, some elements of horror, dark comedy and a dash of absurdist humor.

My current labor of love:

The Shufflers revolve around the awkward adventures of Märchen and Hiddenite, two unlikely pals living in a magically fueled, Neo-Victorian fantasy world. Märchen is a powerful Cartomancer gifted with the ability to predict people's futures with 100% accuracy. (He's also gifted with a surly attitude and a big mouth that gets him into all kinds of trouble.) Hiddenite is a very quiet, but brutally honest young magician that carries a private, snowy world within his curtain cloth. I've been updating this series at least once a week since June 2014, with Yuki acting as creative contributor along the way.

I want to put forth more time and attention to this series, but as I am juggling my last year of college, and constantly hunting for job opportunities to help pay monthly bills and tuition, it can be a real challenging goal to fulfill.

With your patronage, I can devote a lot more more time and energy into The Shufflers and other future projects without having financial instability getting in the way! You'll also be supporting potential future projects such as:

The Shufflers Animated Adaptation:
As someone with a desire to break into the animation industry, I would love nothing more than to make animated sequences based on the comic, including some moments that didn't make the cut in the original comic series.

Tale of the Melancholy Sea Stags: A long-form web comic series about five heart broken bachelors that take a summer cruise through magical and dangerous international waters. This concept is inspired by stories of love and loss from Greek Mythology, and the movie Cabin Boy.

Each pledge will get you different rewards, such as behind the scenes material from my sketchbooks, early updates and exclusive downloadable wallpapers. Pledges will also contribute towards milestone goals, ranging from WIP streams to ultimately updating web comic projects 3x a week!
Of course, any comics I chug out will always remain free to read online.

Pledge/reward options will remain simple for now, but I'll be adding more incentives depending on the milestone goals reached. Thank you!
