Stacey Lehane is creating heartwarming absurdity

Hi, I'm Stacey. I’m an independent artist with an abundance of interests and a scarcity of spoons.

I write spec fiction, create vector art, and blog about everything from storytelling to chronic illness to queer representation to pop culture. I create from the margins and I have a lot of thoughts on that.

My art is meticulously heartwarming – sometimes absurd but always optimistic. I write stories where the girl gets the girl, the princess becomes king, and monsters are real but are mostly your bros. Life is hard; hug a werewolf.

My current projects include:

  • The Princess Lottery - A queer fantasy novel that's being released to my patrons chapter by chapter as I write it.
  • The For Writers series - Part writing advice, part pop culture deconstruction. I enjoy pulling stories apart to see how they work. This series of blog posts is where I do that.
  • A sporadic series of queerified twisted fairytales.

Why Patreon?


I was diagnosed with Endometriosis in 2016. Since then I've had two surgeries, developed chronic pain, and have had to give up regular work. My budget is still holding that last bit against me.

Which is where Patreon comes in.

This is a way for me to monetise my creativity. It allows me to work when I can and rest when I can't. It also lets me split my focus between my fiction, my blogging, and my art.

I'm so poor right now. Just... so so poor. Being sick is expensive as balls. This means I'm forced to prioritise work that will help me pay my bills now. My patrons' support means my blogging and my fiction both make that cut.

I never intended to become a full-time artist but goddammit, I'm gonna make this work. 

Thanks
