Hey there!! I'm Tess Thompson. I make Soil That Binds Us, a webcomic about three teens who can talk to the ghosts sewing back a world ripped apart by the undead. It's long, it's funny, and it heavily features:
  • LGTBQ and diverse character cast; including a nonbinary protagonist. You better believe that women will kiss each other in this thing.
  • Long form narrative adventure and emphasis on character
  • Jokes and all that heavy emotional sentiment stuff
  • Small animations and videos, like this one!

I currently pour every once of my free time into this project, so it means a lot to me if you decide to donate! ALL of the money saved is set aside to be used specifically for the comic!
Nice- What does donating to you mean?
It means that I can afford:
  • adobe photoshop and programs!
  • to renew the website!
  • to make free/discounted stickers/buttons/charms/merch for patrons!
  • more time to make this thing!
and hopefully, with a lot of luck, one day 
  • RENT. it's my dream to do this full time.

if you're interested in a one time donation rather than a monthly contribution, that's totally okay! please consider donating at my paypal! that's at [email protected], or consider donating once to my Ko-fi, only I will not use the money for coffee. It will be for art.

You can also commission me!!! I'm always open, it's what I currently do full time and again, I could always use the money.

If you're interested in my other work, check me out on twitter or tumblr! I draw women kissing constantly. That's just what I do.

every other monthly tips and tricks will become monthly- the off months being small speed tips!
