I'm Erin Ptah, and I make webcomics!

My currently-running series, with the full archives available online:

But I'm A Cat Person
: Two ordinary graduates adopt a puppy…which turns out to be a magical shapeshifting battle monster. Now one of them is involved in a soul-binding ownership contract, rich and powerful people are lurking around looking to challenge them, and they still can’t find any companies that are hiring.

Featuring adventure, politics, magic, and lesbians. Combines the struggle of modern-day underemployed geeky millennials with the ethical dilemmas that you normally try not to think about while playing Pokémon.

Leif & Thorn: Sparkly queer bilingual fantasy comedy. Dragonslaying hero Thorn Estragon and his team of loyal knights are assigned to guard a foreign embassy; Leif works there as a gardener, serving his native Sønheim in order to pay off a mysterious debt. Thorn doesn’t speak Leif’s language too well when they first meet — but he’s about to find a lot of reasons to learn.

Featuring trauma recovery, slow-burn romance, cross-cultural communication, and trying to pick the perfect song for karaoke night.

Webcomic Woes
Slice-of-life strip about the perils of being in webcomics fandom.

I make these stories because I love them, and in the meantime I've had a string of day jobs to pay the bills. But I would love it even more if the comics paid the bills.

That's where Patreon comes in.

The Patronage

Readers like you are currently supporting the full upfront cost of the comics, including art supplies, website hosting, and dragon food.

More patronage will reduce the time and stress I have to spend on things like groceries, freeing me up to bring you even more art!

Become a patron and you'll get exclusive bonus content, including:

  • Monthly exclusive wallpapers. All gathered in the wallpaper tag. From BICP and Leif & Thorn -- usually both trading off alternate months, unless I'm on a roll with one.
  • Cameo in the strip of your choice. Details in the Cameo FAQ.
  • Custom art/writing. Check out sample chibis and sample ficlets created for patrons already.
  • Sexy bonus strips. Unlock the posts on Leif & Thorn: After Dark.
  • An archive of other bonuses. Short stories, art resources, and more things that I have for sale on other sites are in the free stuff tag for patrons.
Signing up is easy: click your favorite reward level from the list on this page, and follow instructions from there.

You'll be charged upfront the first time, so you can have immediate access to all the bonus content. After that, all patrons are charged on the 1st of every month. (So if you're thinking of signing up, and it's the 27th, you might want to wait a few days.)

If your budget changes down the road, you can always reduce or cancel your pledge. And if you only want to make a one-time contribution, you can also send it with Ko-Fi.

No matter how you do it, my Executive Assistant (shown above) and I appreciate your support!
