MariNaomi is creating comics, podcasts, and community!
93

patrons

My name is MariNaomi and I'm a visual artist, storyteller, podcaster, and community organizer.

My comics are primarily true stories about compassion, death, and complicated relationships. I also have a comic strip called Asian Goth Punks Rule the World! that appears regularly in Razorcake Magazine, and a young adult graphic novel trilogy published by Graphic Universe called Life on Earth--the first book, Losing the Girl, came out this year.



In addition to being a cartoonist, I'm also the creator and administrator of the Cartoonists of Color and Queer Cartoonists. These databases, which together feature over 1,500 comics creators, are free to the public. They're a good place to browse and discover the work and talent of marginalized creators. Seriously, there are so many great artists and writers up there. Go look right now.



This Patreon was created as a way to support my work, and to reward and connect with my readers. I'm offering special access to my work, my artistic process, and a back-log of out-of-print comics, exclusive to my beloved patrons. This includes Patreon-exclusive diary comics, as well as sneak peeks of comics before they're available to the rest of the world.



The money I've made from Patreon has gone right back into my work, affording me to give the databases their own space on the web, to create the podcast Ask Bi Grlz, and more. All this wouldn't have happened without the generosity of my patrons.

If you enjoy my comics or have benefited from my community work, please consider chipping in. Thank you so much!

Comics
