Hey all! I'm a non-binary author, editor, and illustrator based in Jersey City. I've got a bunch of projects in various publishing pipelines coming up in 2018 and beyond, so it feels like an ideal time to start putting some work out, and Patreon feels like an ideal place to start sharing it! 


So what am I doing?
At a minimum, I will be creating a once-a-month run-down of my work in progress. I cant share anything expressly NDA, but I will share some stuff that's too behind-the-scenes for Twitter and other social media.

I'm aiming to keep this Patreon from becoming make-work while still making slightly better use of stuff I'm doing anyways. This could be as widely disparate as: writing, drawing, painting, sculpture, language construction, discussions of my thought process as an editor or curator... I have a lot of projects in progress and sometimes it can be hard to see that I'm making progress at all. I'm hoping the act of documenting progress will help me to quantify my goals and stay on track! 


My goals for this Patreon
I want to become a stronger, more self-directed illustrator and build better work habits for my publishing life. I have a lot of work I effectively keep private because of various going concerns with publication, or other reasons I may not want to post that work on my public Twitter account, but still want to collate and show the work.

Using Patreon as a nominal paywall for those items allows me to do more independent work and hopefully develop a few of the projects I have underway, and will also allow me to offer some behind-the-scenes observations.

Pledging me here is just one way to say you like what I do and want to see more of it! Thank you for being here.

Goals
$51 of $100 per month
At this sustained level of pledging, I can start work on a series of small "Patreon-first" illustrations for a special project--one per month! These will be for a standalone worldbuilding project within one of my other stories, but Patrons will get the first look. I'll document this project here and come up with some neat exclusives as a way to say thanks!
