About Maggie
Hi, I'm Maggie Umber. I'm a cartoonist, painter and printmaker. I'm also a Co-Founder of 2dcloud and part of the crew at The Learning Machine in Chicago. I've created two previous graphic novels Sound of Snow Falling and Time Capsule. I just wrapped up the graphic novel 270° which will debut at TCAF in 2018. 

$1 Behind The Scenes
By becoming my Patron, you'll get exclusive Behind The Scenes access to my studio via my Process blog and videos. You'll see how I make multi-media comics in linocut, woodcut, rubber stamps, stencil monotypes, watercolor, gouache, acrylics, pencils and brush pens. You can also participate in Patron-only polls to vote and help shape the direction of my Patreon.





$3 Early Access 
Watch me create my upcoming graphic novel The Man in the Blue SuitThe Man in the Blue Suit is a collection of silent, black and white horror comics revolving around James Harris, The Daemon Lover. I first heard about this ballad character in Shirley Jackson's collection of short stories The Lottery or The Adventures of James Harris



The graphic novel will be divided into 5 parts. Each part will begin with a gouache copy from one of Goya's witchcraft paintings from the Duchess of Osuna's study. That will be followed by several thematically-related short comics, generally 8-24 pages each. The final page count will be 200-300 pages. Each story will focus on the elusive daemon James Harris.

The Man in the Blue Suit will be mixed media book, including work in brush pen, watercolor, acrylic monotypes, linocut, woodcuts, rubber stamp art, gouache, ink, color pencil, and water-soluble crayon.





$5 Downloadable Comics
At the beginning of every month you'll get a pdf download of whatever short comic I finished the previous month. Sometimes it'll be a comic from The Man in the Blue Suit and sometimes it'll be a short comic for a magazine. During months when I haven't finished anything, you'll get a pdf download of one of my previous comics or supporting materials like storyboards.
