Nicholas Koleis creating The World of Jellybots
Select a membership level
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 :)
UPDATE JAN 2020:
It's been a while since we started- we've been through periods of feast and famine together, but it's 2020 and Jellybots is finally at the point where the artbook goal of this Patreon is finally in sight!
There will be some changes around here- the Patreon will continue in its current form, Patrons will retain exclusive access to all the art and videos created thusfar, and updates about the book's progress as well as new art will still arrive sporadically, though I can no longer commit to monthly updates. All are welcome to stay or take their leave! If anyone has any questions, please email me at: [email protected]
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!

All Patrons will get access to 3 longer, annotated process videos of existing pieces, as well as a spiffy Jellybots wallpaper!
