About

Hi, I'm Noah! I'm a freelance illustrator and comic artist from Atlanta, based in Boston. It looks like you've stumbled upon my Patreon. How did you end up in this dusty corner of the internet? Maybe you saw my art in a book I illustrated. Maybe you spotted my trans pride illustrations floating around online. Maybe you're actually my mom, stalking me again. No matter how you found me, you wound up here, so I hope you like my art. Thanks for visiting my page!

DIGITAL TIP JAR

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 illustrated the covers of Too Bright To See by Kyle Lukoff (2021), The Other Animals by Audible (2019), and Boston Pride Guide (2019 and 2020). I am currently working on my first graphic novel, Cloudland, coming in 2022 from Henry Holt, among other projects. I also make zines, prints, and greeting cards, which I sell in my Etsy shop. You can see my art at noahgrigni.com or on instagram at @noahgrigni.

ABOUT MY PATREON:

I joined Patreon last year, in the hopes of becoming more financially stable. I love what I do, and I work hard, but my current work structure is exhausting, unpredictable, and unsustainable. I can't predict how much work I'll find each month, or whether I'll get paid on time, so my income is constantly fluctuating. Boston is the 4th most expensive city in the US, and I cannot afford to continue living here.

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 freelance artists like me. This supplementary income acts as a financial buffer, or safety net. If I have a bad month and can't find freelance work; if a job falls through; if I don't get paid on time; at least I'll have some guaranteed income for the month, and that means a lot 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 post most of my art for free on platforms like instagram and my website, because I want it to be accessible to everyone. So, if you like my art, consider paying me a monthly tip 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 like), and we don't make a livable income doing it. Patreon allows you to tip me on a monthly basis, in exchange for exclusive digital content and mailed rewards.

If you like my art and 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 six 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! You have exclusive access to these comics. 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 at least twice a month. This content includes sketches, project updates, work in progress, finished art, and occasional discussion posts. I also try to post new art to Patreon before Instagram, so my patrons are the first to see it. Sometimes I forget. I try my best to post consistently! Please be patient with me.


MAILED REWARDS (ROYAL PATRONS):

In addition to digital content, Royal Patrons (Princesses, Queens and Kings) ALSO receive physical art bundles in the mail every three months, once per season. Princess patrons receive 2 mini-prints + 1 greeting card; Queen patrons receive 5 mini-prints + 3 greeting cards; and King patrons receive 5 mini-prints + 3 greeting cards + 1 small original drawing addressed to them. In each bundle, I also include a thank you note, a personal favorite recipe, and occasional extras like stickers and patches. 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
