About



MEET THE ARTIST


John Pearson 
is a British Comic Award shortlisted illustrator and artist based in Leeds UK.

John has built a reputation as an inimitable talent through his varied portfolio producing bespoke illustrations for clients as diverse as Image Comics, Titan Comics, 2000 AD, Heavy Metal Magazine, 44Flood, Vice Press, WWE, Rue Morgue Magazine, The Ray Harryhausen Foundation, Nuclear Blast Records and Kendall Calling Festival amongst many others. He is also an award-shortlisted comic book artist, self-publishing – with co-creator Owen Michael Johnson - the critically-acclaimed series Beast Wagon which The Guardian described as a ‘twisted zoological fable’.


WHY PATREON?


Patreon is a means for you to get exclusive previews of works in progress, demonstrations of processes and approaches, breakdowns of methods, advance previews of comic book work, one-to-one tuition and feedback on your own work plus much more.

Through supporting my work here, it'll give me the opportunity to experiment more with different approaches and really push the boundaries of what I do, all while letting you as patrons be part of that journey and get benefits along the way.  

Webcomics is a real focus of this Patreon, letting patrons get early access and behind the scenes looks at the creative process. We'll be releasing BLOOD MOON, created with writer PM Buchan through this Patreon as early access, along with a whole host of other projects in the near future.

Patrons can not only get previews and behind the scenes glimpses at projects, but can also connect directly with me through the Scholar and Witness tiers, offering tutoring and critical feedback. I've worked in Art Education for a decade and currently tutor University students across a wide variety of courses. I really want to expand the group of people I tutor through this Patreon, either face to face or online. I know how important feedback and guidance is for anyone working in the creative industries at any level, and even for those who just have a casual interest. From novices to professionals, I can give you tutoring and critique at any stage of your own creative path.

Acolyte


All previous benefits plus:

  • Every six months you'll receive an A4 (8.27 × 11.69 inches) original pen and ink illustration on bamboo paper.



Witness


All previous benefits plus:

  • You'll have access to a shared folder where I will review and comment on your creative work. This will be a minimum of one in-depth written feedback review each month, with the possibility of more (depending on how fast you work and how much I need to say).



Scholar


All content from previous tiers, plus:

  • You'll have a monthly one-to-one session with me (either online or in-person for Leeds locals) going over anything you want. I generally provide feedback on creative processes, working briefs, digital painting tutorials, analogue process tutorials and so on. This can be for anyone, of any age.
  • STUDENTS: I've had many years of experience working in education and currently work doing university lecturing and freelance academic support. I can help you with practical work, understanding briefs, academic writing and theory, critiques, and so on. I already work with a wide spectrum of creative students, so can now do this for you.


Cult Leader

All other benefits plus:

  • I will create art for you, MONTHLY. This will be up for discussion with individual patron's, but can be either original hand drawn pieces or Digital work. I'm quite happy for people at this level to build up their payments for anything more involved or any project based work, functioning as a payment plan as such.

Goals
12 of 50 patrons
When I hit 50 patrons I'll start doing monthly streams of large-scale paintings from start to finish, talking through approaches, tools, techniques and anything else you might want to hear.
