About Paul Duffield

I'm currently focused on creating The Firelight Isle, an ongoing cultural fantasy webcomic that you can read on my website, on tapastic, or as a special phone-only version on webtoon. Join my wonderful Patreon supporters and you can get fantastic perks whilst helping me to create art, and make The Firelight Isle the best it possibly can be!

The story is a tale of coming of age and cultural discovery, set in a fantastical civilisation guarded by mysterious masked priests. It follows the lives of two childhood friends who are about to be parted as they begin the trials of adulthood, and start to encounter the shadows that hide in the dark corners of their world.

It's all been written in full, and will be around 300 pages long when finished! I spent much of 2012-15 researching, drafting, scripting, thumbnailing and re-drafting the story, and now the pages themselves are being produced steadily. The Firelight Isle is also collected into three printed volumes, the first of which raised over £20,000 on Kickstarter.

This project is a labour of love, and I spend as much time as I can on it around my regular work as an illustrator and designer, as well as hiring the fantastic Kate Brown (Faith Says You, Fish + Chocolate, Young Avengers, The Wicked and the Divine) to work on the art with me two days a week.

By becoming part of my Patreon community, you can help to make The Firelight Isle my main priority, boost the pay I'm able to give Kate for her work, and also get access to all sorts of perks, from reading new episodes in advance, an early look at work-in-progress pages to access to layered Photoshop files, editing notes, discounts on my store and more!

Goals
$361 of $400 per month
If we reach $400 a month, I'll create Patreon-exclusive pin badges with the tier symbols on them that patrons can earn through their pledges!
