About Christine Mari

Hello! My name is Christine Mari and I’m a 23-year old comic artist who draws autobiographical comics on Instagram. I’m half Japanese and I was born in Tokyo, Japan but grew up in the United States. I'm currently based in Los Angeles, California.

My comics deal with a wide range of subjects, from my multiracial identity and my experiences living in Tokyo to my everyday struggles with anxiety and depression.

I want my Patreon to be a place where everyone can be themselves, myself included. It won’t just be a place where I post comics, but a community where I hope people can relate and connect with each other through shared interests, from graphic novels to Japanese culture to mental health awareness.

So what is this Patreon thing?
Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for anyone to support their favorite artists and receive exclusive benefits in return. My goal is to be able to support myself as a full-time comic artist and continue making stories that people can relate to and enjoy. By supporting me on Patreon, you will help me to reach that goal!

How does it work?
Select your membership level and click Join. After joining, you can adjust or cancel your pledge at any time. If you just want to sign up for one month and check it out, that's completely fine!

274 of 500 patrons
Another milestone! With your support, I can dedicate two full days per week to writing and drawing comics. This is a huge step towards my dream of creating art full-time.

In celebration, I will make a special thank you video for all of my patrons with a fun surprise :)
