Hi! My name's Calyn and I'm a cartoonist. I create comics for the masses on a quest to go from bitter to better. My character, Dill, is a kid with a lemon stand and existential issues whose adventures I have been chronicling since the age of 6.



Dill has his own world populated by "the dills" who each, in their respective ways, aim to reach out to you.



His friend and neighbor, Dana, runs a community of "Fab Bats" which seeks to represent the underrepresented in alternative subculture. She broaches subjects such as Black Goth men challenging images of hypermasculinityRococoa and its role in uplifting oppression and the increased visibility of Black Goths.




Dill and You

I use my words, lines and speech bubbles hoping to provoke a thought or two and propose a creative foundation for constructive change.

Patreon lets users donate to projects regularly, contributing to their growth and development. With support, they can continue to be updated and delivered straight to your digital door.



How to: you just click the "Become a Patron" button and choose the amount you would like to contribute. All amounts are equally awesome! Each one comes with a reward (for a full list, look out yonder to the right->).

What Dill will do...

- Continue making comics
- Publish
- Showcase work at comic conventions and events

For Dana's blog:
- Continue making articles and comics
- Create a full database for Alternative Musicians of Color
- Complete further research for new posts
- Maintain the Etsy store with her merchandise produced by small, independent companies

You will get...

- Full 100% access to Behind the Scenes
- A cool cartoon version of you
- Original piece signed and mailed to you
- Bacon

What you see Behind the Scenes:
A digital look at comics that are normally only available in print. All Patrons will be the first to see story driven work, not just strips. You will also have access to drafts with thoughts and personal stories behind the making of them. Because I have been drawing Dill since I was 6 years old, you will get to see early, primitive, abstract-like comics straight from my old Zap Books. Sound fun?

Want to contribute but can't afford to donate? Send Dill a smile on Facebook!



A huge thank you to all Patrons! You are helping Dill grow, and that means everything to me.
