If you grew up watching Saturday Morning Animated Shows from 1987-2008 you are probably already familiar with my work. I was the lead character designer on all of the following projects:
the animated ALF show, C.O.P.S, Captain N, Extreme Ghostbusters, Godzilla the series, Max Steel, Heavy Gear, 
Starship Troopers: Roughnecks Chronicles, Igor, Dark Fury and more. I created and sold the game Spectrobes to Disneyand won an Emmy for my design work on Tutenstein.

I left Hollywood in 2010 to return to comics, my first love. Currently I am working on two titles and the point of this Patreon is to let you into my world, my art and my process. I'll also show you creature & character designs from my entire career.

What are the titles that I am doing for the American publisher Image Comics?

8House: Yorris
I am writing Yorris with Helen Maier, who for 31 years has been my creative partner. Helen and I have re-imagined our entire animation career, mashed all of the shows that we've worked on into one big project, with a new, but familiar style, and using old school inking with steel nibs and brushes, the same way I made comics back in the 80s.

Oh and Yorris has plenty of monsters, creatures, and ghostly things as only I design them.






Zooniverse
This is a reprint of my comic originally released in 1986-87 that caught the eye of Producer, Richard Raynis, who flew me out to Hollywood, beginning my career in animation. I'm recoloring all six issues, 180+ pages, and it's a huge job. For it's 30th anniversary Zooniverse will be serialized in Island Magazine published by Image Comics.

To sum up:
I will show you character and creature designs that no one else has ever seen outside of the animation Productions, plus current artwork from the comics that I am working on, with occasional video updates on my YouTube channel, and PDFs.

I look forward to meeting you!

Cheers,
Fil Barlow
