Who am I?
My name is Chris Malidore - I am an illustrator based in North Carolina; USA. In late 2002 I began a thrilling new journey down the road of illustration and design. Fast forward a good chunk of years and we see a diverse career that has had the pleasure of working with some of the finest creators in our commercial illustration market. I have painted and drawn book covers, album covers, hundreds of illustrations for role playing games, worked on graphic novels, and have acquired a lovely fanbase of interesting people that help make this all worth it. Oh yeah, and there's penguins. That may make sense more over time, though.



Why am I here on Patreon?
Patreon is one of the finest ways of genuinely interacting with a fanbase right now, allowing a patron a chance to support the arts that they feel a kinship with. I'm here to continue my work in a more public manner to help further the industry around us, connect with potential buyers more efficiently, and to inspire. With your monthly patronage you'll have access to my new webcomic, Penguin Lost, piles of artistic walk-through and demonstration knowledge, sketches and works in progress rarely anybody else would ever see, to be included in the creative process ....and of course there will be finished pictures. 

Newly added to the line up of offerings, I am now producing monthly Patreon Exclusive print runs of my monthly Lore artwork. The only other way of receiving these prints would be at convention appearances where I am there in person. We'll be looking to add those dates in slowly as the year goes on.



What is Penguin Lost?
Penguin Lost is the new webcomic in which I upload at least two pages each month (if I can do more, I'll do more, but it will need to fluctuate due to my active freelance career). Penguin Lost centers around a space faring penguin who after having been stranded on an alien world, must now find his way through the oddities that await and hopefully find his way off world. In this homage to all the things that really inspired me to pick up a pencil, I hope to delight readers with some fun simple comic based escapism. For any level of patronage, you gain access to all of our pages and story content already released.


What even IS Patreon?
Patreon is a way for people to support the creators that they wish to support. With donation levels that are designed to not break the bank, you too can help fund the arts that you identify with. I like to think of it as a digital tip jar with fun content. In thanks for your patronage, you'll have access to material provided by these creators in respects to the reward tier you chose. You can adjust your pledge at any time.

Anyway, this is all one giant work in progress - I'll update this further as time passes and as I can fine tune this page into what it needs to be. Thank you so much for your consideration, support, and time - please feel welcome to contact me with questions and comments. I aim to please... after all, we're all in this together!

Goals
16 of 25 patrons
This milestone is the "get feet wet" stage, where I try and dial in and whittle this page into something productive and useful for everyone.

Once we hit the goal number of patrons we'll start doing some live stream content so that I'm not just talking to myself.
