Hello. My name is Colin Upton and I am a cartoonist. Patreon is a system that allows people like you to send bits of money once a month to me, the starving artist. If enough people send bits of money each month, I will not have to worry so much about paying my bills. Since 1985 I have been making self-published small press mini-comics in the underground/indie/autobiographical/comics-as-a-means-of-personal-self-expression tradition. Check my Tumblr catalogue for details: https://colinupton.tumblr.com/2018%20comics%20list
While I rarely depict graphic violence or sexual content I am willing to do so if the story demands it. As well as mini-comics I've done comic strips, comic books (Big Thing, Buddha on the Road, Kicking at the Darkness), concept art and illustration. I have spoke, written about comics. co-hosted two radio shows about comics, drawn cartoons for a play and cartoons for a movie. None of which has raised me over the poverty line. Recently I have been forced to neglect my comics work in favour of my day job, painting wargame miniatures for hire, which doesn't pay great either come to think of it. Having Patreon support I would devote more time and energy in producing new comics. Besides new mini-comics I have a series of Lovecraftian stories I'd like to get back too called the "Gwen Ghoul Variations", about different Ghouls all named Gwen. Any support you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
