I could be funny here but I always regret it when I try.

I am a white cis woman in her thirties with a support system; I work in food and retail; I’ve been writing and drawing all my life. I started this campaign so people who know my work can gimme money and interact. If you're just stumbling across my page: hello! My work is all available for free at rachelwestbooks.com. If you like what you see, come back and let me know; either with a pledge of support or just by commenting, following or sharing.

I’m asking for money because I believe that supporting artists is important, life affirming, life saving, and fun, and because it’ll help me afford things I like. I release most of my work under a creative commons attribution-sharealike license, which is for me a matter of personal preference, not a judgment on whether art in general is worth money. Since I live in a culture that profoundly undervalues all kinds of labor, I advocate an approach that reduces harm and increases autonomy and, for better or worse, I’m starting with me!

Once again: feel free to follow, subscribe, comment, and most of all read my stuff for free at rachelwestbooks.com

I currently post 'officially' to Patreon 2-3 times a month: one public and one private plus occasional downloadable content for patrons $5 and up. Any pledge unlocks the Patreon experience which I’m always striving to enhance and which also includes Discord access (it’s a chat server; results not guaranteed).

Thanks for being here. Good luck; be kind; do your best!

Look forward to selfies of me actually out in public as I treat myself to at least one afternoon per week at a walkable coffee shop or cigar bar. There, I will work on drafting new material and editing old material. Alternatively I may look into actually getting a share of an office/community/studio space for this purpose.
