ABOUT ME:
Hi, my name is Ricardo Venâncio, I'm an illustrator, storyboard artist, and comic book creator from Lisbon, Portugal.
I've been drawing professionally since 1999 in all sorts of jobs, but comics and mythology have always been my passion, ever since I picked up old Marvel and DC issues as a six years old kid.

ABOUT THIS PATREON:

After a few solo adventures and collaborations in short stories and a 130 page webcomic on Line Webtoon, called The Purple Heart (with Vito Delsante and Dean Haspiel), I've started a project of my own called Hanuram, the Golden (Hanuram, o Dourado, in my native portuguese), the story of a warrior called Hanuram, proud champion of the city of Elliam. So proud that, comparing himself to the Goddess of War, Aonii, is cursed by the gods to live trapped in his golden armor, wandering the earth while enduring every divine threat thrown on his path, until he lears a lesson in humility.
That is, if he even knows what humility is.
He's the greatest and he knows it.

After an early plan of self-publishing it as a webcomic, I was invited by the good people of Comicheart and GFloy Studio Portugal, two portuguese publishers, to launch the character on paper, as a comic book series.
The first book was published in 2017, and won the Best Art Award in last year's Comic Con Portugal Galardões da BD.

Right now, I'm working on Book Two, in addition to further developing an ever growing world where the doomed warrior will roam.
In order to build on this world and these stories, I need to focus more of my time into this process.

That's where this Patreon comes in.
In short, I need your help developing this thing.

What do you get in return? Depending on the level of your pledge, at the very least, you'll help a very thankful creator work on his dream job, get access to the making of an entire new world, read exclusive short stories for Patreon backers, take a peek at upcoming books way before everyone else, earn original pieces, plus, the chance to cameo on future books.

That's it, that's my pitch!
I hope to have you on that side.
Thanks in advance for reading this and for your support!

So, this initial goal will ensure I can at least complement the income I already have from other jobs to keep doing the work on Book 2.
