A.C. Esguerra is creating Comics & Illustration

per month
Hello! I’m A.C. Esguerra / blueludebar, an independent comics artist and illustrator based in LA. I make watercolor and ink stories about flight, history, poetry and human nature. Here’s my portfolio site.

I’m the creator of Eighty Days, a queer historical romance manga about 1930’s pilots. Part I won the PRISM Queer Press Grant Award in 2016. It’s free to read here. I also make artbooks, paper matter and merch to sell at conventions and my online store.


Patreon is a place for me to share my creative process in-depth. You can find posts and videos on how I make art from the thumbnails stage through to pencils, inks and paint. I also talk about where I get inspiration, how I develop designs and how I turn my writing into comics, along with other mysterious alchemy.

Every bit of help goes a long way to free up time and energy for the work I’m most excited to make. If behind-the-scenes illustration work is of interest to you, or if you just want to throw some support my way, feel free to join me in the studio anytime. Thanks for reading!
