WHO
I AM AND WHERE I GET MY INSPIRATION
I'm John. I am a self-taught freelance illustrator/cartoonist. Interests? There is a massive, massive list that I forget part of at any given time. To name some - Bill Watterson's "Calvin & Hobbes", Jeff Smith's "Bone" series, The Jim Henson company (like, anything they do is cool with me), Blizzard's Warcraft series, The Simpsons, Star Trek (Next Gen & DS9), Tolkien's Middle-Earth stuff, Lloyd Alexander's Prydain Chronicles, Brian Lumley's Necroscope, British comedies/panel series, most mystery television, Seinfeld, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Spinal Tap, Jurrasic Park, James Gurney's Dinotopia, Terry Pratchett's Disk World series, and some of Neil Gaiman's work. Just, some of it. I love irreverent takes on work, or digging deep into detailed world building and exploring narrative through the eyes of the characters within them. When I need to relax and break out something fun, I make a nerd smoothie with key ingredients drawn from this dog-pile of influence.

I became a D&D-thusiast in 2008, running sessions for a group of ten friends from 2010-2017. Blending my love for the characters my group created with my self-taught art skills, I found a new niche and purpose for my art. Since 2016, I have been producing character and creature pieces for players, DMs, D&D Adventurer's League modules, independent bestsellers on the DMs Guild, and online open-beta TTRPG settings.

On my own time, I like to draw orc monstrosities (pictured above), or abyssal nightmares with a thousand faces with teeth like meteors, mouths agape, a mass of writhing scaled tentacles. Sometimes wearing a top hat. Holding a sign with "Room For Rent - Inquire Within" splattered out in blood red ink (DC 8 Investigation Check). Or existential comic panels about a depressed war-forged cleric who breaks the fourth wall by speaking in meta-game. Deadpool meets Eeyore.
Their name is Exclamation!

I could go on...

...WHICH IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS PATREON!
Freelance art is my life, and my career. As I rely on commissioned/contract work solely to make ends meet, this Patreon helps me unleash some of my personal projects, like those listed above. For the moment, those pieces are short, conceptual works, and with your support, I get to share these items with you guys exclusively, for your personal enjoyment.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
  • Help Inspire: At the beginning of the month, give your input on Patron only polls for content!
  • I provide quality art, from line-work concepts to full cell-shaded color pieces as .jpgs. From character and creature concepts, the occasional cartoon, to wallpaper-art.
  • Unless otherwise stated, the content provided is for personal use only.
Change and growth are expected here. I intend to make necessary changes to what I offer based on how this community grows, how my art and creative goals progress, and feedback I receive. 

TIERS!
The Tier system is based on a pledge per month that gives you access to exclusive Patreon content.

Tier 1: $1 per month
This gets you a behind-the-scenes look at current works-in-progress. Regular posts let you see the progression from rough sketch to fully fleshed-out art.

Tier 2: $3 per month
Gets you access to the same stuff as in Tier 1, PLUS: Get your voice heard! Vote in exclusive polls or submit you suggestions to help me decide what to draw next!

Tier 3: $10 per month
Gets you access to the same stuff as in Tier 2, PLUS: Gets you a high-resolution image of all personal art completed that month. (Approx. 1-2 pieces per month).

Thank-you for supporting my creative endeavors!
My insulin dependency also thanks you.
