Hello, Patrons & Potential Patrons! I'm Lindsay Ishihiro, a.k.a. chaoslindsay, and I draw stuff. What kind of stuff? Well, the webcomics How Baby and Motherlover, as well as original and fan illustrations. With your support, I can continue to make those things.

A portion of my earnings goes right back into supporting other creators here on Patreon. Thank you for helping create a thriving artistic economy based on cooperation and support!

Who are you?


I'm a freelance illustrator and mother from Vancouver, BC. I used to be an executive assistant, and then I traded art for dollars for a few years, and now I work as a production artist at Anemone Hug Interactive, where I still trade art for dollars, but much more regularly.

Other than drawing, I'm a nerd for tabletop gaming, cooking, geography, art books, and da internets. I like tigers the way that Kristen Bell likes sloths. I take time from my busy schedule of sleeping, working, and wiping noses to occasionally smash the patriarchy.

What kind of things do you make?

I create How Baby, a slice of life comic about motherhood influenced by the fact that I'm a nerd, a gamer, a feminist, an artist, and a child of the internet age. Over 300 strips and counting!

I'm also creating Motherlover, a sister comic to How Baby, about two moms who (are gonna) fall in love.

I also do standalone illustrations, both fan art and original. You can check those out on my Tumblr. I like to use art to tell more feminist, body-positive, sex-positive stories that often feature gender and sexual minorities, non-white characters, disabled characters, and unconventional or complicated relationships.

Why should I support you?


Because you believe that tipping creators for the work they do is an important part of the creative ecosystem!

Because supporting me specifically will help... well, you know, roof over head, food on table, diapers on kid!

Because you like what I do and want to help me make more of it!

Because you want to support an artist who's working to increase the amount of queer-friendly, sex-positive, inclusive art in the world!

What other things have you worked on?

I'm in the Amplify Her comic anthology, an anthology of Pacific Northwest horror comics called Bones of the Coast, Dirty Diamonds #8, and I have a short comic in the Deep Engines world.

I've done adwork for The Daily Dot, art for the StreamBros channel on Twitch, and the album art for The Doubleclicks' album, President Snakes.

I worked on a Kickstarter reward for The Switch, a fantastical television show that does the revolutionary work of actually casting transgender actors for transgender characters. I've also done work for Project MC2.

Tell me something I don't know.

You're a good person with a great capacity for passion and kindness, but society has taught you to hide those qualities behind a hard exterior because you're afraid of being hurt for the things you love.

Let me love you back, potential Patron. Let me love you as hard or as soft as you need. Let me in to your heart.
