About


My name is Jeffrey Johnson, and I’m an illustrator, teacher, and dad.Over the last decade, as I’ve documented my life and work both through photos and comics, I’ve come to think of myself more and more as a storyteller.Life With Girls is a comic about being a dad with daughters. He works in a career field dominated by strong women. It’s autobiographical and began as an exercise exploring artistic style and technique. It focused mainly on small stories, moments that I thought were funny or observations that I wanted to carry with me. It was a comic about finding connection through the moments of our daily life.

My current project, Good Stewards, is not autobio, but does explore thoughts about parenting, citizenship, education and divorce. I’m developing the project in real time over Instagram as part of the 100 Day Project, and collecting the daily posts weekly here on Patreon. It will be the story of a father and his daughter, coming together over a summer project as they look for small things they can do locally that they hope will have an impact globally.

What is Patreon?

I’ve always thought of Patreon in the same spirit as the final scene of It’s a Wonderful Life. A hundred people offering one dollar to help out had the same effect as one person offering a hundred. At it’s heart, that’s what Patreon is: A way to support artists through ongoing small donations, allowing them to focus on the work of creating.

What’s in it for you?

By becoming a patron, we’re investing in a creator. The bulk of what I create, will continue to be available online for free as it always has been. In the future, I would like to expand those things into online classes, group projects and get togethers. I would like my community to be a part of my goal.
Backer benefits are broken down into tiers:
$1 level - every post will be delivered to your inbox.
$2 level- backers gain access to some exclusive sneak peeks and behind the scenes posts.
$5 level - I will periodically compile my sketchbook and some finished artwork into a pdf. I plan to include any finished books as pdf’s for backers at this tier.
$10 level - at this level, I will open a commission slot to paint something special for you.
$50 level - Let’s do a project together.
The stories we tell, the things we make, the lessons we teach, are what bring us together. Thank you for letting me be a part of your story.

Goals

Oh my gosh, you all are amazing! Meeting this goal will mean that my rent is paid, the kids are fed, and  I'll be able to effectively focus my entire attention on making art, and telling stories both online and in the real world. Thank you so much for believing in me, you  all are incredible!
