About Noah Grigni

Hi, I'm Noah! I'm a trans artist from Atlanta, based in Boston. It looks like you've stumbled upon my Patreon. How did you end up here? Maybe you saw my illustrations in a picture book, or floating around online. Maybe you're actually my mom, stalking me again. No matter how you found me, you're here, so I hope you like my art. Thanks for visiting my page!

ABOUT ME:


I graduated from Lesley University in 2018 with a BFA in illustration, and I've been freelancing full time since then. So far, I have illustrated four books: The Every Body Book by Rachel Simon (2020), The Ship We Built by Lexie Bean (2020), It Feels Good To Be Yourself by Theresa Thorn (2019), and The Gender Identity Workbook For Kids by Kelly Storck (2018). My art has also appeared in We're Still Here: An All Trans Comics Anthology by Avery and Thornton (2018), and The Transgender Heroes Coloring Book by Avery and Cameron (2019). I have also illustrated the covers of the books Too Bright To See by Kyle Lukoff (2021) and The Other Animals by Audible (2019), and the magazine Boston Pride Guide (both 2020 and 2019).

You can see my art at noahgrigni.com or on instagram at @noahgrigni. I also sell prints, zines, and greeting cards in my Etsy shop. I also have a shirt shop, where 50% of profits go to a different activist group each month! You can also tip me via my digital tip jar.

I am always juggling art jobs, but my dearest project is my debut graphic novel, Cloudland, coming in 2022 from Macmillan. I have been working on Cloudland since 2017, and I'm on track to finish it by the end of 2021. As I work, I am posting sketches and pages to Patreon, which I am not sharing anywhere else. This is part of the exclusive content you can access by becoming my patron. 

ABOUT MY PATREON:

I joined Patreon in the hopes of becoming more financially stable. I love what I do, and I work hard, but my work structure as a freelancer is unpredictable and unsustainable. I don't know how much work I'll find each year, or whether I'll get paid on time, so my income is constantly fluctuating. Boston is one of the most expensive cities in the US, and the reality is that I cannot afford to live here as a freelance artist.

I am doing everything I can to stabilize myself; that's why I'm on Patreon. Patreon offers a crowd-funded, secondary source of income for freelancers like me. If a job falls through, or a payment is late (as they often are), at least I'll have a little guaranteed income for the month, and that means the world to me.

I don't want to burn out, so I am using crowd-funding to make my art career more sustainable and less exhausting. I share most of my art on free, public platforms like instagram and my website, because I want it to be accessible to everyone.

So, if you have the means and you like my art, consider tipping me for it! Why should you tip artists? The same reason you tip waiters: because we are doing you a service (yes, just by making art you enjoy), and we don't make a livable income doing it. Patreon is essentially a way for you to send me a small monthly tip, in exchange for exclusive content and mailed rewards.

If you like my art and you want to keep seeing it, please consider throwing me a few dollars every month. It helps me pay the bills and bring you the content you love. I deeply appreciate any support, no matter how small.

What will you get by becoming my patron? My everlasting gratitude! And, a few other things:

DIGITAL CONTENT (ALL PATRONS):

All of my patrons have access to all of my digital content, including Cloudland excerpts, and six other short comics which can be found nowhere else on the internet. These six comics are The Lighthouse (2013), The Tempest (2014), Undone (2015), Shit I Learned In Art School (2016), Anatomy of a Wallflower (2016), and Thots With Thoughts (2017). Patrons can find and download these comics by clicking the featured #comic tag in the the "posts" section of my page.

*A note for patrons: This is an honor system. I am giving you access to these downloadable files because I trust you not to share them. Please DO NOT post them anywhere. If you do, I will find out, and I will cry.

I try to post new content to Patreon once a week. This content includes sketches, project updates, works in progress, finished art, and discussion posts. I also try to post new art to Patreon before Instagram, so my patrons are the first to see it. I try my best to post consistently, but sometimes I forget! Please be patient with me.


MAILED REWARDS (ROYAL PATRONS):

My $2 Peasant Patrons have access to only digital rewards. My Royal Patrons -- $4 Princesses, $10 Queens, and $20 Kings -- get digital rewards AND mailed rewards. Princess Patrons get 1 print in the mail every 3 months; Queen patrons get 1 print every month; and King patrons get 1 print + 1 small original doodle every month. In each print parcel, I also include a thank you note, a personal favorite recipe, and occasional extras like stickers and postcards. It's pretty cute! I like sending mail, you like getting mail, everyone wins. I want my art bundles to feel like love letters. I hope they brighten your day when you open them.

Every pledge helps, no matter how small. I love you guys, I literally couldn't do it without you.  Thank you so much for supporting me.

❤️
Noah
