Chris Hyacinth Riley is creating Yokoka's Quest

For as far as she can remember, Yokoka's lived in the same old boring forest. It's not that she's lonely- she has a lot of siblings to play with- but she has dreams, a desire for adventure! What would happen, if she walked without stopping? How far could she go? What would she see?
Yokoka's Quest is a webcomic that updates 3 days a week; Monday, Wednesday and Friday!



This story had been on the back burner for a long time- in fact, I wrote the first draft all the way back in 2004! I already knew I wanted the story to be a comic but, not having the skills, I only wrote it down and left it at that, then moved on to other projects. Around 2013, I decided it was time to start getting serious about what I wanted to do with myself, and what better project to start with than the first story I ever wrote?

I started drawing pages in October 2014 to have a buffer, and the comic itself has been going live since September 17th 2015, posting every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. So far, we've made it to chapter 7 and still going strong and on schedule- and I'm determined to keep it that way! 



However, I want the comic to be available online for free. No matter what happens, I don't plan on changing that! But as you can guess, this takes up a lot of time and energy. This is where you come in! With your help, I could concentrate on making this an actual living, doing what I love every day and sharing all the stories I can think of with the world! 


How does this work?
- You pick a certain amount to pledge monthly, and receive the rewards associated to it! 

When is the money processed? 
- Patreon lets creators choose how this goes; in my case specifically, pledges are charged on the first of every month! If there's any issue processing the payment, Patreon automatically tries again a few times until the 5th.

How do the commissions (20-60$) tiers work?
- Every month between the 1st and 5th, I contact everybody on the tiers via email to ask what they'd like me to draw! If I get no responses by the middle of the month I usually try to contact them again via different means (ie: social media or discord) to shoot a reminder about it.

Can I pay you extra via Paypal to have an extra character in my commission? 
- No. I have to get Patreon rewards delivered all within the month, and the rewards I offer are keeping that in mind. If you want something different, contact me via email for a custom commission instead! There is an exception: if you also pledge in my wife's illustration tier on her Patreon, we can merge your reward for a 2 characters illustration with a more detailed background done as a collab! 

If you have any issues or questions with anything, don't hesitate to contact me!
