My name is Jules Rivera and I'm a comics illustrator, animator and visual development artist.  I've worked on comics titles such as Barbie: Starlight Adventure, the upcoming Barbie: Video Game Hero from Papercutz/Mattel, Gutter Magic from IDW Publishing, and Oxymoron: The Loveliest Nightmare by ComixTribe.  

But when I'm not freelancing my face off, I've got some of my own comics that I'd like to share with you. 


Love, Joolz
I started doing comic strips about my life.  I call it Love, Joolz. It's on Webtoons and Tapas and updates every Monday and Wednesday (with bonus surfing strips thrown in whenever I've got new material). 

Deep-Ender
(written by John Lees)
Upcoming webcomic - slice-of-life/romance
In a project that's a dramatic about-face for both creators, Deep-Ender is a romantic comedy about loss, swimming, errant shorts, swimming, and finding yourself through competition, and of course, swimming. Ollie is a man who struggles to work through trauma related to a near drowning several years earlier. However, his swimming club of choice, Bogton Baths, is in trouble. Only a win at a major swimming competition can save the club and while Ollie doesn't want to disappoint the beautiful team captain, Silvia, he's not sure he can bring home the gold.


Valkyrie Squadron
Webcomic - Sci-Fi
Valkyrie Squadron follows a team of four female fighters in a space war against robot drones. The drones have taken the fight to innocent civilians, making entire colonies disappear. To save these people, it's up to the Valkyries to find out where they are going and how they can be saved

Why Patreon?
Being a full time freelance artist, I am often forced to choose between working on pay work or working on my personal projects.  This Patreon campaign will allow me to work on my properties in a sustainable, productive way.  I believe in these projects, and I believe that working directly with my audience, we can bring these projects to life to a level of quality it deserves.

What's in it for you?
You're not an altruist.  It's okay.  I'm not either.  I work hard for my money and if I part with it, I want to know that I'm getting something great.  Anyone familiar with my Kickstarter work knows I'm going to deliver the goods.
