Hello! I'm Ray Fawkes. I'm a writer, a poet, and a painter, and I want to share my work and my process with you. I live in Toronto, Canada, and I've been making comics - independently and professionally - for roughly 20 years. I started as a DIY creator, printing my own photocopied comics and selling them to whoever would spare a few bucks. In the years since then, i've worked for almost every major North American comic book publisher, but I've never fallen out of love with doing my own thing. 



I make comic books, and it's my goal - and always has been - to make comics that are intelligent, unabashedly weird, sincere works of art - ideally, each one should be a completely unique work in the whole of the industry. I want you to feel like you're reading something nobody else would ever dare to do, every single month. Comics like ONE SOUL and INTERSECT are examples of my aspirations - as is UNDERWINTER, the ongoing project that takes up most of my time right now.

While I work on my comics, I also constantly sketch, paint, and write poetry. No doubt I'll show that here too.



When times are good, I make a bit of steady money working for bigger publishers while I create my indy works. When times are not so good, I survive by selling art and by receiving Patreon pledges. DC and Marvel are great, but they don't employ me enough to keep me alive. It's the support of my patrons and readers that allows me to keep creating works of art.



Patrons here will get access to a ton of behind-the-scenes materials, from scripts for published mainstream work to previews of upcoming books, artwork on my easel, and more! 

It takes a lot of heart to throw your support behind an artist. I thank you for reading this, and for considering me and my work.
