Family Man is a three-part graphic novel series full of intrigue, atmosphere, dangerous romance, theology jokes, academic backstabbing, antique library science, old grudges, old gods, and the company of wolves. 

I've been creating the comic since 2006, posting over 400 pages to date. 

Queen of the Sea is my next major graphic novel, due out from Abrams in fall of 2018. Margaret has spent her entire life far form the shores of Albion, on the tiny but idyllic Island that a small convent of nuns call home. Then a tragedy reveals the Island's sinister true purpose, and brings two powerful and dangerous new residents to its shores. Margaret must befriend a meddlesome former queen, rescue a shipwrecked duke, outwit a power-hungry Mother Superior, discover her own identity, and, possibly...save a kingdom in the process.

I also have a third, not-yet-announced comics series in the works. Because I can't keep life simple.

All these books mean it's tougher than ever for me to supplement my income with freelance work! Patreon means I get to share progress on those books with you and keep the lights on while we wait for everything to finally hit bookstores!

Goals
$624 of $1,000 per month
I have scripts for several short comics that I would absolutely kill to draw (and/or hire another artist for!), including one Family Man story about an important incident in a character's past. If we hit $1000, I can clear my work schedule for long enough to sneak it in.
