Hello friends!

I'm your local art witch and I'm here to bring a little more magic into the world. Tarot, illustration, writing, and comics are both my craft AND my witchcraft! I'm here to tell stories about people like me, a queer, trans/nonbinary person living a full life, through joyful times and sorrowful ones. 

Why Patreon?
Patreon helps pay my bills and allows me to do art as a part-time career! One day I would love to do this work full-time, and so every bit of financial support goes towards that goal. The more time I have for Tarot, art, comics, and magic, the more you will see me posting these things and the better they will be. Even $1 or $2 a month adds up when everyone pitches in!

Because of Patreon, I'm now able to work part-time doing art & Tarot, and only have a part-time day job. That's exciting! Every pledge is one step closer to full time.

What kind of work do you do?

TAROT
My most well-known creation is the Numinous Tarot, a full Tarot deck that features inclusive, diverse, colorful imagery and a guidebook based in intersectional feminism and written with gender neutral language. 



The Numinous Tarot recently raised an amazing $27,798 on Kickstarter and is in the process of being printed, along with additional merchandise like stickers and prints!  Pre-orders are currently closed and the deck will return for direct sale in late spring.

I have been reading Tarot since 2003 and currently offer a monthly group reading for Patrons who pledge $2 and up! My focus is one of optimism, hope, healing, and recognition of the dark, shadow parts of life rather than turning away from them. Private readings are also available through my web shop.

COMICS
From January 2011 - October 2016 I published an urban fantasy webcomic called Ignition Zero about a bunch of queer college-age friends who get mixed up in the supernatural. Pretty much the entire cast is queer, and the two leads are romantic asexuals (like myself)! The story is not about their queerness, but it is definitely a clear part of the characters' lives.



I also make journal comics about my life, mental health, gender, queerness, and whatever else is on my mind. Those comics get posted here FIRST before anyone else gets to see them! Some of my journal comics are exclusive to backers entirely, as well.

I am creating a new webcomic called The Thread That Binds in 2018. It's a solarpunk fantasy with librarian witches, magic bookbinding, astral internet, and all kinds of cool messages about the accessibility of knowledge. Patrons at the $5+ level will get to download chapters as they're created, rather than waiting for me to create several chapters of buffer before posting the project publicly. And everyone gets exclusive access to all kinds of bonus content! I am already posting TONS of doodles and worldbuilding stuff here as I work on developing it.

OTHER STUFF
Sometimes I post recipe zines, or magic spells, process videos, or short stories for my Patrons as well! Whatever's on my mind and on my drawing table, Patrons get to see it first and see more of it <3

I have a question or comment, how can I contact you?
Please email me at [email protected] and I'll get back to you as soon as possible!

Thank you! <3
