My name is Ashanti Fortson, and I make comics! My current big project is Galanthus, a queer space fantasy webcomic about fighting for the future in a universe that has begun to unravel. Galanthus is my celebration of wholehearted optimism, the power of kindness, and vibrant, colorful sci-fi. I put tons of heart and tons of work into this comic, and I’m determined to see it through.

Currently, my largest challenge when it comes to making comics – Galanthus and otherwise – is setting aside time for them between other work. I’m a full-time student with a part-time job and additional freelance work, all of which takes up most of my time. On top of that, I live with chronic illnesses that provide more obstacles to productivity. I’m hoping that this Patreon will help me afford little things like new art supplies, or that I’ll be able to slowly build up my savings with it. If it grows enough, I will be able to stop taking on as much non-school, non-comics work. That’s the dream!

If you’d like to support my work and you’re able to spare a buck or two a month, please consider becoming a patron! ♥︎
