About

Hello! I'm Kan and making comics is my favourite type of art.
I've been drawing comics for myself for years and have been self-publishing fancomics and original comics in print since 2009. I like to tell stories about magic and relationships. I also really love the ocean and bad storms, so these sorts of settings play a big part in my work. I have more stories to tell than I'll ever be able to draw, but with your support I can manage to get at least some of them out of my head (and onto your screen and/or shelf)!

I make art for a living and I feel super lucky that I'm able to do so. Right now my time is divided between freelance work and conventions but with your help I can continue to create and share stories, at an even faster rate!

Current Projects


My current ongoing project is the webcomic Ultramarine Weather-- a supernatural dramedy about weather and magic. It takes place in 1974 on the Luno Islands, where the weather is the same every day, to the minute. When childhood friends Atlas and Jo rescue a washed up witch with missing memories, their routine days begin to change with the weather.
I've been updating almost every Sunday since October 2015 and have completed 9 chapters.

Future Projects


Radiowave Communication is a comic I started in 2014 that began as an assignment for class and turned into a short story. The first volume was complete but it got put on hiatus while I focused on school. When I returned to it later, I was in a bad place and deleted it. But I've always wanted to come back to it and finish it properly. The story focuses on a recently activated medical robot named Apollo who struggles more to make sense of his corrupted partner and their Victus owner than himself. (Those who have read Happiness Theory will see lots of familiar aliens lol)
Carry On Sunday - The sequel to Ultramarine Weather, 15 years later. Following the building of a bridge to the mainland, the town of Sunday begins to experience a series of problems beyond those that come with a growth in population. Problems that are far more supernatural than any of the long term residents are prepared for.
Glen Hollow - A psychological adventure-fantasy that follows Nena, the daughter of the mayor of Glen Hollow, a village in the heart of a valley. As far back as she can remember, Nena has been unable to dream. When villagers begin falling ill after experiencing strange dreams, she leaves the valley to find help.


These are just a few narratives of many! I have several short stories I want to make when I have the time, as well as multiple side-stories that add to the canon in Ultramarine Weather/Carry on Sunday. And, of course, I have an endless amount of fan comics I want to make. You'll get to choose which things get made from polls!

Patreon

By supporting me on patreon, you'll be helping me create more content as I can rely less on freelance and conventions and spend more time drawing comic pages! In return, you'll not only get faster updates, you'll get access to patreon only content like early pages, WIPs, sketches, production notes, sketch requests, process videos, and more! I'm going to try (keyword) to do livestreams too, but I get really distracted and nervous so it's hard.

I don't have much time at the moment to offer more exciting things but when I do, I want to offer more mail rewards for things like zines, prints, stickers, etc and take requests from patrons for not only drawings but mini-comics as well! I'll also add more goals in the future for things like side-stories and content chosen by patrons!

Whatever amount you choose to pledge, please know that I'm extremely grateful for your support! Thank you so much!

Rewards


$1 Tier:  Basically the tip jar! But you do get access to news, announcements, and WIPs. You'll also get to vote in content polls and have access to any coupons when I have sales in my online store.
$3 Tier: You'll get everything above, plus access to early comic pages--which are usually at least 10 pages ahead of what is online. That's like, months ahead! You'll get 1-2 page updates per week, as I finish them (Even more as we reach the stretch goals!)
$5 Tier: You'll get everything in the above tiers, plus access to sketch comics (both of my choosing and those chosen in polls), all my sketches I don't post elsewhere (fanart and original), production notes/designs/behind the scene stuff for my comics. Lots of planning stuff! This is also the tier I'll post comics from the 'future' comics list to, far in advance of any possible online or print debut, once the required stretch goals are met.
$10 Tier (Limited 15): You'll get everything in the above tiers, plus monthly sketch card requests. I'll draw whatever you'd like (sfw) and you'll get it in the mail on a roughly 4x6 card. Sketches are inked and include 1 or 2 complimenting colours in copic marker.

*NEW beginning in July*
$25 Tier (Limited 4):
You'll get everything in the $1 through the $5 Tier, plus monthly digital illustrations. The easiest way to describe it is like an extremely discounted commission (over 50% off!). Each month, I'll draw whatever you want (sfw) fully inked/coloured and email the file to you. These drawings are not for profit but you can edit, repost, or use them for things like icons/desktops/character info sheets/print them for your personal use/etc. I'm more than happy to discuss any details or questions you may have!

All tiers will have access to any livestreaming that I may do.

Schedule

I don't have a set schedule for updates, but I try to post as soon as I finish things, and share WIPs at a reasonable rate.
Right now, I can say there will be an update (WIP, comic page, illustration, video etc) a few times every week. When further goals are met, I can take more time to make more content and update more!
