Hello there! My name is SJ, and welcome to my Patreon.

I'm an illustrator, storyteller, and singer of sea shanties. At the heart of things, I'm interested in creating character-driven narratives. My inspiration comes largely from 19th century American history, the sound of the sea, the way light falls through the windows of a lonely house, ghost stories, and old objects that have tales to tell.

My present projects include the long-form webcomic Going to Weather, a maritime familial drama set upon the stage of the Yankee whaling industry.
I am also working on Lacrimore, a gothic fiction about legacy and the inextricable scars that history leaves on a place. This is currently in early development, but will eventually take on the form of an illustrated novella.

By becoming a patron, you’ll be directly supporting these projects, and enable me to pour more attention into bringing these stories to life. Patrons are charged monthly, and rewards include behind the scenes development, patreon exclusive sketches, downloadable sea songs, and perhaps even an opportunity to see your face drawn in a crowd on a pier in 1820s New Bedford.
