10/15/2017 NOTE: Currently there is a production hiatus of FaLLEN while I am pregnant. Because of this, I have changed many of the tiers to reflect the current situation. I hope to be comicking again shortly, but for now I'm focusing on shipping Kickstarter orders and rebooting the website. There are still some updates and artwork postings, though, even if the comic is currently on hiatus.
My name is Ogawa Burukku, artist and author of the webcomic FaLLEN. I studied comicking in both America and Japan and currently live in a town called Matsuyama on the island of Shikoku in Japan. I've worked with publishers and studios as an assistant, storyboard artist, illustrator, and translator, but my real passion is making my own comics. But enough about me, I'm pretty boring.
The purpose of this Patreon is to help fund the creation of new pages for FaLLEN, which is a labor of love that unfortunately costs me some serious yen just to keep going. As evident by the thumbnails above, I am old school and use traditional mediums to do my comic pages, and art supplies (particularly screen tone) is pretty costly.
After my Kickstarter in November, 2014 and with the closing of my sponsor Inkblazers one month later, I was encouraged by many readers to make a Patreon campaign to keep the comic alive. So here it is! I'm keeping the cost of tiers pretty low and emphasizing bigger rewards with milestones, but for very little pledged people can get behind-the-scenes information, WIPs, and have sneak peeks at upcoming pages. I appreciate you taking the time to read this far, and if you haven't seen FaLLEN, it's free to read online at the official homepage.
