I'm James Sharp, a comic artist/painter/doodler from Vancouver, Canada. I like the history of poster design, moral uncertainty, and toast with at least three spreads. 

I've been reading comics since I could read anything and wanting to make them for about as long. The first comic I ever tried to make was a super hero, I'm pretty sure he had a black suit with a star on it and punched stuff; seven is a very direct age. There's been a lot of detours between here and there, but now I'm back at it.   

The comic I'm making is Rashabar, an adventure set in an alternate history, mostly cause it seemed like a good cover for airships and art deco aesthetics. I'd tell you all about it but Jesus, spoilers! I would get just roasted in the comments. But it's an adventure, and there's some mystery, and some strange, strange happenings. It's not meant to be too serious, we'll have to see about funny. It updates every month with 5 pages, more if I can swing it. I really hope you all come along for the ride. 

I work a few day jobs, and that's fine, but some day I'd really love to be able to spend all my time getting the stories in my head out on to paper. This seems like a great way to start reaching for that, with all of your help. So thanks for swinging by and having a look and whether you support me here or not, I hope you pop over to Rashabar.com and give it a read.

Thanks for patronizing me! wait...that doesn't sound right. 
Fancy Pass
$5 or more per month 1 patron
Behind the scenes access! Online sketchbook,  extra art pieces, sneak peaks and early pages. And you’re still rad. Maybe even 2.5 times as rad. Does rad scale linear or exponential? 
Beer after the show
$10 or more per month 1 patron
  All that plus:

 

- Pdf copies of the comic every time I have the content for an issue



Collector
$20 or more per month 1 patron
Every time I have enough content for an issue you get a hard copy print in the mail. Includes a custom drawing in the front, artists signature, and a nice note (if you’re at the top of the pile, or a cranky one at the bottom).  Plus lower tiers rewards.

Dang person, that is crazy generous! Obviously you get everything I already mentioned, but we are going to throw in 2 more pieces of sweetness here. 


First, you will get your name printed in every issue of the comic in a special thank you section, and also in any trade collections I produce down the line. Second, every month I will be mailing out a limited run of customized art prints. Each print is drawn and/or painted on after printing, numbered, and signed.  

Goals
$51 of $1,000 per month
I can drop one of my jobs and focus more on my own art! This would be a huge step towards making comics & art a real career for me. It also means I will be able to reliably produce more pages every month, so the size of updates will grow to at least 8-10 pages a month!
