About

Hi, everybody!  My name's Melanie Gillman.  I'm a queer cartoonist currently living in Columbus, OH.  Since 2012, I've been making a long-form, all-colored-pencil webcomic called "As the Crow Flies".  ATCF follows a group of queer teens who meet while stuck on a week-long Christian youth camp backpacking trip; it's been nominated for the Slate Cartoonist Studio Prize (2013), several Autostraddle Comics & Sequential Art Awards (2014-2016), an Ignatz (2016), and an Eisner (2014).  As of this writing, the comic is a little shy of the 300 page mark, and the whole thing can be read online for free at http://melaniegillman.com

I love working on this comic more than anything!  My biggest dream is to be able to give up more of my non-comics work commitments so I can devote more time to it.  Supporting this patreon is a way for you to help me update more frequently -- as well as publish some neat side projects, like diary comics and side stories.

But for those of you who can't donate, no worries -- ATCF will always be free to read online.

Thanks so much, everybody!  Your support means the world to me <3
