Nicholas Kole is creating The World of Jellybots
220

patrons



Hi There! My name is Nicholas Kole, I'm a freelance Character Designer and Illustrator with 8 years of experience bringing fantasy worlds to life through animated shows, comics, video-games and children's books. 
I'm setting out to build enough work for an art book (and more) about the World of Jellybots!



I've been working on Jellybots for years. It's a labor of love that comes from persistent dreams of wanting to do something bold, colorful and science-fantasy about the joy and pain of growing up.
Influenced by work I love- from Studio Ghibli to Nintendo, and Disney to Tintin- it's a world where ideas combine and reform. 
The dream is to continue to create characters, story, and environments fleshing out a vivid world that is playful, diverse, uncynical, and full of wonder and adventure!

As it grows, I plan to compile it into an art book filled with the existing work as well as a ton of new stuff I'm already dreaming up. 

I'd love to do it with your help.



My goal is to give Jellybots the full attention I give every professional client- I'd love to truly let loose and continue to test the limits of my abilities as a designer and storyteller.

Interacting with online supporters has brought a lot of meaning to my work over the years (I really like you guys) and I'm excited about the opportunity to collaborate :)

That starts here- one piece at a time- through Patreon you can support my work with recurring monthly donations at whatever level you like! With that, I'll be able to focus effort into this artwork and together we'll make something great!


How This Will Work

Monthly updates will arrive from me- always with accompanying process and extras specific to your support-level! With more support, I can increase how often I update with new art, videos and tutorials, even get more ambitious- the further this spreads, the more Jellybots there will be! Please do share your support and spread the word :)



I'll be creating a steady stream of varied Jellybots content- largely character designs and illustrations, with smatterings of prose and short comics to flesh out the story - there's room to adjust and grow as we go. 
In the long term, I've always wanted to see the world in motion, and I'd love to develop Jellybots towards a possible pitch for an animated project. But everything big has small beginnings and right now I'm focused on building a foundation of art and ideas to draw from.




Your support will make it possible for me to share the world of Jellybots with you through process videos, behind the scenes sketches, exclusive new designs, story development, video tutorials, and HD images.
I deeply appreciate your support at any level, for any duration you're comfortable with.
Thank you so much taking the time to look!

There will be comics! I'll start in on some new pages as part of a new short comic to be icluded in the art book.

We'll have us an old fashioned live-stream with new art and active q&a! You may request music. I may dance like a big dope to said music. 
It will be FUN.
