Quibole mi gente, this is Vicko and I am the creator and illustrator of ScholaR Comics, an online web comic and zine series based on my childhood growing up as the daughter of working class Latino immigrants. I’m starting this Patreon because I’m itchin to tell newer and richer stories but need the time and funds to do so. ScholaR Comics is only two years old but we've done a lot since going live!

In the short time since my comics debuted, they have been covered in Latina MagazineTelemundoRemezclaNewsy, and as someone who still considers themselves a rookie artist, I am beyond grateful for the support. The clicks and shares made me realize just how much people need and want to hear stories about people of color they can relate to and it is my goal to continue creating literature that continues to have that impact. My comics are used in middle school classrooms to teach empathy, they're used in college lecture halls as an example of innovative literature, I have shipped my comic zines to youth groups, legal offices, and churches in nearly a dozen states, and my very existence as a Latina comic artist means the world to my young black and brown students who rarely see themselves represented in the creative arts. By becoming a patron of my work, you help me continue to be an artist AND an educator which means more than you can imagine to myself and my comic community that seems to just keep growing!

As a thank you for supporting me, there's a list of perks over on the side bar that I hope can help you as well. I've gotten many questions about myself and my work so I hope a peek at a newsletter, a Q&A session, and access to one of a kind merch can give you a better look into my process and artistry. A huge, HUGE hug to every single one of you and I look forward to engaging with y'all and building community on Patreon! 

Abrazos,

Vicko

Quibole mi gente, mi nombre es Vicko y soy la creadora e ilustradora de ScholaR Comics, una serie de cómics y zines basada en mi niñez como hija de inmigrantes latinos de clase trabajadora. Estoy empezando este Patreon porque desde hace dos años que publique mis comics, la respuesta ha sido increíble y me he quedado con ansias para contar historias nuevas y más ricas, pero necesito el tiempo y los fondos para hacerlo.

En el corto tiempo que mis comics han sido públicos, han sido cubiertos en la revista LatinaTelemundoRemezclaNewsy, y como alguien que todavía se considera un artista novato, estoy bien agradecido por el apoyo. Los clics me hicieron dar cuenta de que gente necesita y quiere oír historias sobre personas de color con las que pueden relacionarse y es mi objetivo seguir creando literatura que continúa teniendo ese impacto. Mis comics se usan en las aulas de la escuela intermedia para enseñar empatía, se usan en salas universitarias como un ejemplo de literatura innovadora, y he enviado mis zines a grupos juveniles, oficinas legales e iglesias en casi una docena de estados. Mi existencia misma como una artista latina significa el mundo para mis jóvenes estudiantes de color que rara vez se ven representados en las artes creativas. En ser patrón de mis comics, me ayudas a mantener mi trabajo como artista y maestra, y eso significa más de lo que puedas imaginar para mí y para mi comunidad de cómics que parece seguir creciendo.

Como un agradecimiento por apoyarme, hay una lista de ventajas en la barra lateral que espero pueda ayudarle también. He recibido muchas preguntas sobre mí y mi trabajo así que espero un vistazo a un boletín de noticias, una sesión de preguntas y respuestas, y el acceso a mi merch pueda darle una mejor mirada a mi proceso y arte. ¡Un abrazo enorme a cada uno de usted y espero seguir creciendo mi comunidad en Patreon!

Abrazos,

Vicko

Listen, I wasn't ready for this but here's my proposal:


1) Give me a list of your three favorite things

2) I'll have my boyfriend sing you a 30 second song about you and your three favorite things. I'm serious. He's a really good singer. Shameless plug: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4W-Zh0IiaY


Every month, you're allowed to name three new things for him to sing to you about. He doesn't know I'm making you these promises, but trust I'll make this happen.

Goals
$292 of $600 per month
When I reach $600 per month, I'll do a special illustration where I'll attempt to draw all of my patrons huddled together in the shape of a big heart.
