Howdy!
Thanks for stopping by my Patreon page. Hopefully you're already having a wonderful day. If not, make yourself a cuppa tea and let's talk! 

WHO AM I?
So who is George Rex (aka Georgina Chadderton)? Well, some say she is an enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in a question. Others say she is a small bowl of salty soy beans. Mostly I consider myself to be an autobiographical cartoonist (although I would love to dabble in fiction and science comics too one day) from South Australia. 




WHAT’S OH BROTHER?

Oh Brother is a graphic novel memoir I’m working on about my experiences growing up with a brother with severe autism. This book is super important to me. Growing up with my brother, Rob, I felt a little lonely and didn’t know how to explain to my friends what life with him was like. I didn’t know heaps of other kids who had siblings with a disability and even fewer kids had heard of autism. Because of this, I’m trying to write Oh Brother as the kind of book I would have wanted to read as a young child who was a sibling of someone with a disability.

I’ve now got a manuscript for 100+ pages of Oh Brother (it will be approximately 300 pages when finished!). If you want to see what I’ve done so far, I’ve been keeping a blog (here) about writing the book and some of the experiences I’ve had of my brother’s autism or you could watch this nifty little documentary about my comic making process and why I'm making this book.


WHY PATREON?
For several years now I’ve been working day jobs to pay the bills and doing comics in my spare time. I love making comics. I don’t think I could ever not dothem.

This year, with the help of a writers’ scholarship, I was able to go part-time and then take some extended leave from my job so I could dedicate my time to writing and drawing Oh Brother (my first full-length graphic novel!) and work on other short comics. Unfortunately, the scholarship finishes at the end of the year and I want to be able to keep working on the remainder of the book.
That’s why I’ve set up this Patreon. I do earn money running comics workshops, drawing portraits and taking on commissions but I’d love to have more time to work on my own comics. With your help I can spend more time in the studio working on Oh Brother (as well as other short fun comics about my life or food or mystical creatures) and less time prioritising paid work over the comics that are super important to me to write.





HOW WILL YOUR MONEY HELP ME DO WHAT I DO?


By becoming a George Rex Comics Patreon member you’d be helping me to:

  • keep working on my graphic novel about growing up with a brother with autism
  • self-publish new short autobio comics and zines
  • work in my studio full-time on my comics and art
  • not stress out about paying my bills! (This one is super important.)
I’m super grateful for any donation you can give. As they say, every dollar counts! I totally understand if you just can’t spare it at the moment. Don’t worry! My online comics/blogs will always remain free for everyone because I believe in sharing stuff with everyone (and no matter what, I’ll always make comics). But by supporting my Patreon account you will be helping me to put my art and stories out into the world regularly and help me to focus on and finish my graphic novel! I really appreciate you just giving your time to read this tbh.



SHOOTING HIGH
I've got some cool extra rewards organised for when I reach my higher goals, including digital wallpaper, a comic strip just for Patreon members and t-shirts. With your help I could be reaching these goals in no time!
