Matthew Dunn is creating Art and Comics

patrons

Hi, my name's Matthew Dunn and I'm an Australian-based artist and comic creator.

I've spent a large portion of my time as an artist working within the music industry, producing album art, merchandise, etc, for bands such as Augie March, Crippled Black Phoenix and Se Delan, and others.  My art has appeared in various journals and comic anthologies, and in recent years I've been an active creative partner/sponsor for Meninadanca, an organisation who provide safe houses and support in the fight against child prostitution in Brazil.

In recent years a collection of ideas and inspiration have been bubbling away, and finally I am ready to share with the world a project that I am very excited about; a new comic and music collaboration titled Salvation Is Free, featuring my gas masked character Leroy.

Rather than trying to work on the art sporadically between freelance gigs I will instead concentrate on funding this project via Patreon.  Initially the Salvation is Free series will be issued digitally via Patreon, with the plan being to go to print upon its completion.

I will not only be sharing the completed pages via Patreon, but those of you who sign up will get a veritable bounty of exclusives, such as:

Regular Salvation is Free process photos

Updates on the project; and

Discussions regarding the conception, creation and development of the Salvation is Free series.

While working on Salvation Is Free I'll continue to occasionally produce other artwork such as t-shirts, prints and original artwork featuring my proprietary creations, commissions, band merchandise and the like.  I often share this work freely online, and for those of you who sign up will get access to the hi-resolution versions of all this art.  This is to reward the generous patrons who sign up as well as attempt to combat the frequency in which my art is taken and sold on various t-shirt websites without my permission (this is a growing problem unfortunately with hundreds of my designs stolen on a regular basis).  Some of this art will be collected as a book that certain patrons (based on their level and time spent as a patron) will receive complimentary copies of after the first 12 months.

There is more information regarding all of this in the Rewards and Goals sections.  For now I'd like to thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope that you'll join me on this new creative adventure.

Kindest regards

Matt
