MARK RUDOLPH is creating Comics

$14
per CREating episodes
I'm a freelance illustrator who does album covers, t-shirt designs, gig posters, magazine covers, spot illustration and comics. Most of my work falls within the world of heavy metal (including my series of books about crucial metal bands like Satan is Alive a Tribute to Mercyful Fate and Morbid Tales a Tribute to Celtic Frost). As many might expect, freelance is feast and famine. Some months several jobs might come in or you could have a few months where you just scrape by. What I'm hoping to do with Patreon is to get a bit of consistent support each month to focus on some of my comics projects (that don't typically pay the bills) and share those exclusively here. I have a few book projects in different phases of completion and this platform would be a perfect way to showcase them with you. To show the various steps a book goes through from the early planning stages to pagination, editing and final printing. 
All patrons will get a free PDF download of my H.P.Lovecraft comic adaptation of Dagon. Each week I plan on having either a tutorial, explanation of how a specific piece came together or the thought process in taking a client idea and turning it into a finished piece of art.

All the previous tiers, but you'll get a 5x7" sketch and see exclusive access to illustrations in progress.
Goals
$14 of $200 per CREating episodes
If this goal is reached, each month I'd produce an in depth video tutorial on a broad ranging group of topics. From technical ones about using specific tools to more broad ideas like how to work an idea with a client or even discussions with other artists/musicians. 
Here's an older video to see what you might expect.
