SkyHeart is an fantasy adventure comic set on the planet Airth inspired by my favorite movies and comics. It follows the story of Wake, a delivery boy in the port city of Bridgeport. When his mother is attacked by the Tengru, evil beings from the core world, he goes on a quest to find a way to free her life-force from the clutches of the Darkness below.
PROJECT STATUS: IN PRODUCTION
The first volume of SkyHeart was funded by Kickstarter. (SkyHeart Kickstarter) For the last two years I've been working to bring that comic to print. I'm just about finished with it and will be delivering to backers by May or June 2018.
Once I deliver the book I'll be uploading the chapters here month by month for Patreon supporters. The plan is to then get Patreon humming along enough to support the creation of future chapters of SkyHeart.
Who is this Jake Parker guy?
I'm Jake Parker, and I've been drawing comics for over a decade. I've written and drawn stories for the Flight Anthologies, I created the Missile Mouse graphic novels, published by Graphix, I collected a bunch of my short stories in a book called The Antler Boy and Other Stories, and a couple years ago I drew Rocket Raccoon for Marvel comics!
Outside of comics I created Inktober, the international drawing challenge. I was a concept artist for animated films and worked on Rio, Epic, Ice Age, and Horton Hears a Who. I've also illustrated several children's books. Check out my website if you want to know more about all that stuff: www.mrjakeparker.com
I love drawing comics and have sooo many stories I want to tell but right now the one that's bursting out of my chest is SkyHeart. Let's talk about getting this thing made, shall we?
It's simple, if you like SkyHeart (or even just my work in general) you can financially support it through Patreon. It lets you set an amount you can give per month and with that funding I get to say no to one or two freelance jobs so I can work on making more great stories.
