Hi! I'm Nichola and welcome to my Patreon!

I'm creating the 'Either Way' comic which is currently being uploaded on WEBTOON in the Discover section. This is a series about endometriosis, infertility and IVF, but also about love and marriage.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE: Hi, I just wanted to let you guys know how your pledges help and why I have a Patreon for this series.Both my husband Hugh and I are freelances, so our income is constantly changing. We get by, but some months are harder than others, especially with a baby now. For 3 years I made the Nicholalala webtoon and I was a paid, featured artist, so I had a good steady income coming in. When my contract was up I was hoping 'Either Way' would be picked up as a featured series so I could continue being paid, but unfortunately it was considered "too mature" for Webtoon's core audience. So I started a Patreon because making this series is important to me.

Hugh and I both work and both look after our baby. Besides from YouTube he also does work like managing other YouTubers, mentoring kids about social media, helping co-ordinate TV shoots. However, when he does that type of work he has less time to help at home, which means I have less time to work. Ideally I'd love to be working more on 'Either Way' to make it into something really great, and increasing the amount of episodes but I'm limited as it's just me making it.

I'm a mother of a 9 month old, I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Endometriosis, I have 2 other comic series and a YouTube channel to run and limited time. If we are able to increase pledges it takes some pressure off Hugh so he won't have to take on too much extra work. So a big thank you to everyone who already supports us on Patreon, we really appreciate it.

Endometriosis, which is a very painful condition, affects an estimated 1 in 10 women. Unfortunately, there is a lack of awareness about it and women can even struggle to get diagnosed. Because this is a women's health issue there is still so much stigma and ignorance around it. Endometriosis can also affect fertility with many suffers also experiencing infertility, as I did.

The title of the webtoon comes from what my husband and I would say when dealing with the fact that we may never be able to have children. That "either way" we would try to have a happy life together.

I wanted to tackle these issues in a comic series while showing the real, and the genuine, and the heartbreaking, but also showing a bit of humour.

I used to be a featured artist on WEBTOON and I made the Nicholalala webtoon. I was hoping my new series would be picked up to be a featured series, but it was considered too mature. I've created a patreon because even not being a featured artist again, this series is very important to me and I want to talk about these issues in a way that engages and entertains as well as educates.

Patreons will be able to access a bunch of extra content and connect even more with us.

My husband and I also have a blog and YouTube channel called 'My Korean Husband' where we talk (and make comics) about being an international and intercultural married couple living in Korea.
