About

Hi, my name is Kristian, and I’ve been making the webcomic Optipess since 2007 - and the comics have been published online since 2008. It’s a comic which is sometimes sad, sometimes silly but hopefully always entertaining. Optipess usually about most things in-between romance and Cthulhu - and in the comic below, romance AND Cthulhu.

Over the years Optipess has occasionally been printed in various publications here in Norway and this has usually been my main source of making money of my comics. Unfortunately print work has dried up in recent years, so I’ve started to look elsewhere for income sources. Ad revenue on my website fluctuates wildly over a year, and in the end ad income covers my annual hosting fees but not much else. But this is where Patreon comes in!

Patreon lets you become a patron of the arts by contributing financially to the artists you love so that they can continue doing what they love to do. These artists will in turn probably love YOU. This is how it works: you choose a monthly pledge level below and get cool stuff - which enables me to continue making comics! Note that the comics on my site will always be free, so you’re not at all required to give me anything at all. Just know that I would be forever grateful if you did. Thank you!

Here are some samples of my comics. Check out the rewards below!

"Horror of the Sea"


"Dressing Up"
