What's up, y'all! Welcome to my Patreon. My name is Eliamaria Madrid Crawford, but I go by Elia for short. I'm a freelance illustrator that draws a weekly webcomic called Elia in a Box: The Webcomic. It's a slice-of-life comic strip featuring my box-figure art style and just the gags of life. I also have a YouTube channel where I share a lot of my adventures centered around my art life. 


I work a day job. Many artists do. That's normal and totally fine. However, my day job supports my living. That includes the roof over my head, the food on the table, and most importantly, my medical expenses. When I was 8 years old, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. For those who don't know, diabetes is a disease where the body doesn't produce insulin on it's own therefore we are constantly in need of it in order to live. I've thankfully led a normal life, am on insulin pump therapy, and take care of myself so it's not so bad. It's just expensive.
My webcomic and YouTube channel are both available for me to post to be accessed free of charge online. That's the beauty of the internet. However, both require funds for upkeep. My webcomic is hosted on a server, requires art supplies to be drawn, and I constantly try to keep my inventory of convention merchandise stocked. This requires money.


I make money for my art life from conventions, but even so, expenses rack up. Colored pencils get sharpened to their ends. My sketch paper runs out. Convention table prices go up. The price of getting my work out there is constantly changing. 
The earnings made through Patreon will help me keep up with updating my webcomic and channel without the stress of having to push that work aside to push commissions, freelance, and all other work that aren't my main projects. Basically, I want to create without the pressure of working on other things that set me back.


I don't want to just ask for help without being able to give back. With each of the tiers, you will have access to many things that others won't. I will post updates on projects I'm working on, offer special shop discounts, post unedited videos, and much more! I love hearing suggestions as well!
Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope to keep creating for y'all!

If I meet this monthly, I will be able to upgrade my Adobe plan so I can afford the suite. I currently only have PS but would love to use In-Design for formatting my comics and books and After Effects for my videos! This all will help me crank out better-quality content at a better speed!
