Hello! I'm Dr. Nyri A. Bakkalian and welcome to my Patreon page!

Historian, writer, artist, graphic designer, coffee snob: I'm a little bit of everything. You might know me from one of my publications, from #FridayNightHistory on Twitter, or somewhere else, but whichever it is, I'm glad you're with me.

Your patronage will help me build the financial stability to focus on multigenre writing, kickass art and audio content, and spreading history education online. In supporting me, this is also where you'll get early access to my work-- art, history, fiction, and more. Bringing exciting and understudied history to the public eye, writing kickass hopepunk science fiction, exploring new directions in visual art and graphic design and more-- all of this I consider my calling. So, thank you for supporting me and making all of this possible.

You're the real heroes!

You are blowing me away, folks! At this level, I can invest even better in art supplies, recording equipment, and books. At this level I'll begin weekly posts of my graphic biography series, An Illustrated Record of the Rule of the House of Date, chronicling over 8 centuries of the men and women of this influential clan in Japanese history.
