What are you making?

I make two science fiction webcomics: Messenger and Follower.

Messenger is a weekly story set in Earth's distant future, and is created using all real media like ink, markers, and watercolor on paper. It's been published online for ten years - since August, 2004.


Follower is a weekly companion comic to Messenger set in the not-so-distant future, and is a collaborative effort with my husband, Delade. It's made completely digitally, and was first published online in the summer of 2013.

Both comics are free to read online and always will be, and also have individual print issues and ebooks available.

What are they about?

Messenger and Follower tell the story of survivors in the disastrous aftermath of a worldwide conflict - and how the world got that way in the first place. Science, war, and human nature are all major players; as well as human-animal hybrids called Chios. Sometimes, the dead even make a cameo appearance. Although no one can change the past, maybe it's possible for the story's heroes to help protect the future.

So, what's this Patreon all about?

Support from this Patreon goes towards buying new art supplies, web hosting, printing books, and all of the related expenses of making webcomics and putting them online to read for free.

Messenger and Follower are currently on a temporary semi-hiatus update schedule while Bug recovers from a minor wrist injury. Patrons at all pledge levels will receive advance comic updates, $2+ supporters will receive new monthly wallpapers, and $5+ supporters will receive their optional rewards. Custom commissioned art reward tiers will return sometime later this summer, so stay tuned!

Thank you very much for taking the time to read about my comics projects! I hope you'll consider lending your support.

Delade will be able to jump in and create new fiction based in the Messenger/Follower-verse! Bi-monthly written stories will be made available to patrons first, and then made public later for everyone else to read. These stories will include illustrations by Bug.
