Hello! My name is Alec Longstreth. I'm a cartoonist.  I have been self-publishing my Ignatz award-winning minicomic Phase 7 since 2002 and now I'm working on my second big comics project: Isle of Elsi - a free, fantasy webcomic FOR KIDS!  It's got wizards and dragons and talking wolves and all kinds of other fun stuff.  Check it out!  www.isleofelsi.com



I have been working on Isle of Elsi in secret for many years now, and I've got a ton of stories I want to tell in this world and with these characters.  With your help, drawing Isle of Elsi can become a sustainable practice, and something that I can do for many years to come.

Backer Blog Sample Posts

There are over 300 posts in the Backer Blog at this point! Every month I unlock older posts so that newcomers can get an idea of what's going on at the $2+/month level of support. Check out the "public"-tagged posts to see some free Backer Blog posts.

P.S.
I believe that giving money to charity is more important than pledging support for this project in these troubling times!

Goals
$157 of $500 per month
Two pages of comics per week!!!

This is my main goal!  At this level of support, I feel like I will have the financial confidence to turn down outside freelance work and focus more on creating Isle of Elsi.  I would begin posting new comics pages on Tuesday and Thursday, with backer blog posts going up on Saturdays.
