Hey friends! I’m Alyssa, and I’m a little bit of a lot of things! A not-quite-thirty-something queer creative and forever weirdo, I am a comic artist, writer, and illustrator constanty pushing to evolve, tell better stories, and communicate new ideas! Most of my work surrounds themes of love, life, identity, disability, and intersectionality -- with the occasional ode to pizza in the mix. 


I spent the majority of my youngest years sketching in hospitals and roaming the earth, and experienced my first heartbreak at age 8 during game 6 of the '96 NBA championships. I write and illustrate the web series, Oh, Hey! It’s Alyssa! at Autostraddle.com. When I'm not writing and drawing my guts out, I'm hanging with pals and/or my dog, George, and drinking too many coffees. I've been known to hug a lot when up too late in bars



In becoming a patron, you’re not only just an all-around rad friend supporting my work and the time it takes to conceive, evolve, and execute bigger and better projects and ideas, but you are genuinely helping me to continue creating while keeping my work accessible.



THE PERKS:
+ Exclusive access to original comics! Be it a short from the vault, the next installment of that rad web series, an informative blurb, or a sneak peek into my illustrated diary and all of the awkward that comes with it, you’ll get access to some of the cool stuff I cook up with opportunities for downloads and early access to stuff in the works for print.
+ Snail mail! Artsy hand-mades as a little thank you from me to you, hand-crafted, folded up real nice, and zipped away right to your mailbox
+ Sneak peeks to the launching of new comic projects/endeavors and the occasional timelapse/process drawing. Sometimes these projects take a loooooooong time. As a patron, you’ll be the first in line to see what’s happening with all the latest and biggest projects in the works with concept art, exclusive previews of works in progress, and early access to print work up for grabs!
+ Personalized illustrations and hand-mades, oh my! Illustrations, paintings, zines, etc. etc.

Still with me? Phew! Awesome. Cool. Great.

Thanks so much for sticking with me. It means so much, seriously.

It takes a lot of time and money to create so regularly. Your help in making this happen in any way is such a big deal and I'm still the most grateful! If I hit $200, apart from possibly paying my phone bill on time every month, I'll invest in some goodies, maybe a patch? A pin for that lapel of yours? And zip some out to you kind patron babes as a humble thanks!
