Hello! It's me.
my name is Penelope Gaylord, or Peng-Peng to some. i'm a full-time freelance artist and most of the time i work in comics. if u know me, u may know that i LOVE Disney and its a HUGE dream of mine to work for them in some capacity. but in order to follow that dream, it's time to kick my art up a few more notches. after talking to animation pros and recruiters, i'm looking to work on an ever-growing design portfolio and i've been told that the best way to do that is to draw even more! so i'm starting this Patreon so that we can grow together and have mutually beneficial, yet different, rewards. with your support, i'll be able to produce so much more art outside of my regular comic/illustration projects. some of them may turn into prints or collected in an artbook. if i have enough supporters, i may even be able to create and post online videos/tutorials for everyone! whaaat!
What U get!i'm drawing all these things to build my portfolio AND share them even more with lovely supporters like U! this is my way of sharing more, beyond sharing on social networks.
i'll be needing some characters you'd like to see me draw each week so u can suggest some in the patron-only feed. one of those sketches during the week will be done in full color and those will be up for grabs during my monthly random giveaways. here are some other things i'll be giving during the end-of-the-month giveaways based on the support-level u choose!*
- you could get some 11x17 PREMIUM PRINTS like this one... (i'll choose the print at random and they will be mailed in a tube)
- you could get a FUN PACK with a COMIC BOOK that i've worked on, one of my MINI PRINTS, and some of my STICKERS, like these... (i'll choose the fun-pack contents randomly)
- you could get an ORIGINAL COLOR SKETCH like this... (these will be drawn on 6x8 paper with my choice of markers, colored pencils, pens, watercolors, or combination of any. the character will be random and not chosen by the winner.)
- for the highest-level reward tier, u can request an ORIGINAL INKED COMMISSION of a character of YOUR CHOICE! (these will be drawn on 9x12 bristol with my choice of ink pens or brush pens or both.)
i'll be posting 4-5 times a week of exclusive sketches, designs, and sneak peeks of whatever project i'm working on that day. i will post on here before i do anywhere else, some may not even be available outside of Patreon. the only time i may not post as often are weeks that lead up to or are between comic cons. i will still do the giveaways though, that much is constant. also, for those of u that are artists, aspiring or otherwise, if u have any questions at all about my process or tools, just ask away. i'm more than happy to help. i want us to grow together!
there will be downloadable content for almost every supporter level. u can use em for practice, u can print them and use em as wallpaper, or u can make fake currency. (just please don't print them on stuff & sell em, cuz that's kinda not cool, bruh.)
*(mailing originals and prints are limited to USA for now. with more supporters i can mail stuff world wide.)
A bit about Peng!
Peng-Peng is a childhood nickname that i started to use as a pen name for my art. i've done covers for IDW, Boom Studios, and Action Lab. i'm usually inking over my hubby Jerry Gaylord's comic pages. we've worked together on comics for LEGO, IDW, and Boom Studios as well as indie press studios. when i'm not working on comics, i'm drawing illustrations for Acme Archives Direct for their licensed properties like DreamWorks' How To Train Your Dragon and Kung Fu Panda.
i couldn't have accomplished any of these things without the support of my family, friends, and especially folks like U who have followed my work throughout the years. i'm constantly trying to be worthy of the admiration and support people have given me and it's one of the reasons why i've started this Patreon.
