Hi! I'm Ray, I'm an illustrator, and I make DNA!

I also make other things, but mostly it's just DNA right now.

DNA is a sci-fi/mystery/action comic set in the not so distant future on a version of Earth with slightly more advanced genetic technology than this one. It's about some people who shouldn't exist, but do, and how they deal with that.

DNA is recommended for people 16 years old and up.

You can read the whole thing for free here.

I've been drawing for a while already, but DNA is the first story I've ever written. I've been toying with it and writing and rewriting it since I was a teenager, but as of 2015, I've decided to start creating it for real, in the form of a webcomic.

Long story short, it's been a learning experience.

I've rebooted it once already, and I'm planning to reboot it again in 2019. The input I've received from people online has been invaluable, and thanks to that feedback, I feel confident in my ability to create something worth reading.

DNA is an amalgamation of everything I find interesting, personal experiences, and things that I care about. Building on it through my teenage years and early 20s got me through some very tough times, and I hope this story will mean something to you, too.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you'll consider supporting me.

Goals
$322 of $500 per month
This is the minimum amount I need to pay for business expenses, namely: Adobe Creative Cloud, Dropbox, both my business email domain and the website domain, and the server space the website is hosted on. This amount would also allow me to repay my student loans comfortably.

I'll also be able to start saving a little bit of money to go toward more modern digital art equipment, and to buy new art supplies when needed.
