This Patreon is the development blog of Amanda Lafrenais! You can help support the content I create, and in exchange have access to my development posts, live streams, and extra content.

Development Posts

I will no longer be sharing development ideas and concepts via sites like Twitter as I used to, and instead will be sharing them as posts here. I will also be sharing comic pages and other projects as I develop/work on them, in the form of sketches, pencils, prototypes, prepress, etc.

Finished Comic Page Previews

I will be sharing finished or mostly-finished comic pages. Self-published work will be shared in its entirety, such as Love Me Nice, which I am waiting to update until the buffer is built, so that it can update consistently on a schedule again. But I will be sharing pages here as they are finished.
For freelance and hired work where the digital distribution rights are not entirely mine, I will only be sharing up to 50% of the pages of any project, such as Slipshine and work like Iris & Angel. 

Comic Workshop

Every Wednesday I will make a Comic Workshop post, where patrons can share their own work with me for critique and input. This is something I rarely have the opportunity to do, due to the amount of work and followers I have, as I would otherwise become too swamped. But I love to do workshops and talk shop, so this seems like a fun way to give it a try!

Want to talk about your own ideas and get some feedback from me? This is how to do it! Every Wednesday I'll make a "Comic Workshop" post where patrons can submit their own art or writing ideas they would like help work-shopping, or to get a critique or redline. I love to workshop comic stuff but can rarely make the time to do it with everyone, so I thought this'd be a fun way to try!

Disclaimer: To cover my butt, cuz some people can Be Like That, I need to assert that I have no intention of stealing any ideas shared with me, and that any future similarities in my own work shared during these Workshop posts would be purely coincidental.

Goals
$204 of $1,000 per month
If I can earn $1,000 extra a month, I can dedicate myself to guaranteeing 2 Love Me Nice a pages a week, which matches the rate-per-age I get professionally for other jobs.
