Who Am I?

My name is Len Peralta. I am a cartoonist and illustrator who lives outside the sprawling metropolis of Cleveland, Ohio.  I draw comic books, graphic novels, card and board games and children's books. I've drawn live during events like w00tstock in San Diego, and at DragonCon in Atlanta, tech conferences in Seattle. I am also the artist in residence on Tom Merritt's Daily Tech News Show.  I am probably best known, however, for my multimedia art project Geek A Week.

What Am I Doing?
A few years ago, I did a project called Monster By Mail. I started doing speed drawing videos of my process.  I made over 700 of those videos and they got me over 4 millions views. I took a few years off and this past summer, I decided to start making new speed drawing videos of some of my larger projects.  I'm at a point now where I feel confident that I will making my videos on a more regular basis and I'll have a steady steam of content.

Why Should You Become  A Patron?
By becoming one of my patrons, you are allowing me to make a living from something I do everyday anyway - draw. I've done successful projects on other crowdsource funding sites. But on Patreon. Instead of collecting a set amount of money toward one specific goal, Patreon is like a subscription service. Through Patreon, You are becoming a real patron of the arts. Just like in the olden days!

Please keep in mind, that you can cap the amount you give every month. So on the rare occasion I make more than 4 videos per month, you won't get charged over what you feel you could spend.

Thanks so much for considering becoming one of my patrons.  I look forward to drawing very quickly for you.
