Hello! My name is Rob Jones and I’m a Sarasota, FL-based artist looking to create a new adventure/humor comic called Highspot.

It has been my life’s goal to work on my own comic stories. Ever since I saw the comic book for the first Michael Keaton Batman in 1989, when I was 10 years old, I was determined to make a living as a comic book artist. I’ve been lucky enough to have spent the last 20+ years working in comics and illustration, including a seven-year stint with comic legend Dick Giordano as his last art assistant.

But while jumping from one work-for-hire project to the next, I have always dreamed of making the leap to being able to work on my own comics full-time.

So that's where Patreon comes in. As I hit my goals, I will be able to spend more time at the drawing board working on my new comic, Highspot. I've had an idea for a story about Alexander the Great for years—it's has been stuck in the back of my head for as long as I can remember. With Highspot, I'll be able to tell it.



I have so many ideas for this project that I want to bring to life, and with your support, I will be able to do that!

And that’s why I’m on Patreon. To reach my goals, I'll be offering rewards such as exclusive artwork, Patreon-exclusive prints, commissions at a discounted rate for backers, and I'll be able to explore another of my other great artistic loves: pin-up artwork. (Who doesn't love a good pin-up?!) Every month I'll create new pin-ups for my backers, based on those backers’ suggestions and requests. And all of this at reasonable pledge levels, which will help me get to my goal of being able to spend more time on Highspot.

Here are the first 5 pages for you to check out!







What is Patreon?

Patreon uses your choice of credit card or PayPal to charge a reoccurring (or subscription) set amount at certain times. I’m set to monthly, so you will not be charged until the end of the month (between the last day of the month and up to the 5th, depending on method). 

The great thing about Patreon is that there is no risk to you as a backer. You won’t be charged until the end of the month, you can change you pledge at any time, or you can cancel any time.
To join, you simply click the “Become a Patron” button for your chosen pledge level, click Continue, add your payment information, then click “Confirm and Pledge.” Then you’re an official patron! And, just for signing up at any pledge level, I’ll send you a PDF copy of our most recent Perfect Storm comic, A New Ride, a stand-alone story written by me, with art by me and Vittorio Garofoli, colored by Ashley Lanni, and lettered by Adam Wollet, with pin-ups by Jerry Ordway, Jose Louis-Garcia Lopez and Joe Rubinstein, Patrick Olliffe, Jeremy Dale, one by me, another I penciled that was inked by Dick Giordano, and one from series co-creator Gary Carbon!

Thank you so much for checking out my Patreon page!
