About Peter Chiykowski

Living my best life means creating free, publicly accessible art for people who love to think, laugh, and be curious about the world.


Since I posted my first comic online in 2008, I've tried to release my art, writing, music, and hard-to-categorize creative projects for free for anyone with an internet connection and an inquiring mind. I genuinely believe that on some level, the world is a richer, more interesting place for it.

I like to think of my projects as a weird library on the corner, where the doors are always open and the shelves are always stocked with something strange and new.



Patrons help me keep my library of art open, accessible, and growing

Since I launched this Patreon, supporters have helped me keep creating through some of the most pivotal (and sometimes difficult) periods of my personal life and career:

  • Patrons helped me quit my day job to make art full-time
  • Patrons helped me provide palliative care to my two senior dogs
  • Patrons helped me move internationally (twice!) to find inspiration in new locales
  • Patrons supported me through important self-care hiatuses so I could reconnect with my creative inspiration again
  • Most recently, Patrons have been extremely supportive when I got my adult diagnosis for ADHD (something I can't believe it took me 33 years to recognize) and started going to therapy to better understand myself, my process, and my neurotype

It's been one of the greatest blessings in my life to have a core group of supporters who have had my back when I have to step away from a long-running project to try something new and fall back in love with the creative process. It's made for a strange career and life path, but I wouldn't trade it for the world.



Here are the past and present projects you're supporting

The Shortest Story // postcard-sized short stories





Rock Paper Cynic // webcomics about life, turtles, and geekdom




My comedy music // funny songs about love, life, and nerdy things


My serious-ish music // not-so-funny songs about love, life, and nerdy things



Is It Canon? // pop culture comics with Aaron Lenk




What's George Doing Today // comics chronicling the daily adventures of a fantasy author



Dad Joke Han Solo // your favourite wide-cracking scruffy-looking nerf herder's dad jokes

(and more!)
