Hello! My name is Sophie Goldstein and I’m a cartoonist, illustrator and comics instructor based in the great city of Pittsburgh, PA. I make speculative fiction comics and graphic novels, with occasional forays into the fields of horror and fantasy.


Panel from House of Women.

A Short History of Me:


My book The Oven, published by AdHouse Books, won two Ignatz Awards and was nominated for the Cartoonist Studio Prize. My new book, House of Women, will be coming out from Fantagraphics later this year.

Darwin Carmichael is Going to Hell, a webcomic co-written with Jenn Jordan, was my first foray into comics. We self-published the collected strips in 2013 with funding from Kickstarter. I’ve also illustrated a children's book, Poopy Claws, written by Gene Ambaum. In 2013, I graduated from The Center for Cartoon Studies and have been living la vida loca ever since.

My work has appeared in publications including Best American Comics 2013, Fable Comics, The Pitchfork Review, Cricket Magazine, Sleep of Reason and The Nib, among others.

Now That's Done With, On To The Issue at Hand:

Like many creators I’ve had trouble stitching together a steady income from my work. Currently, I take on occasional freelance to make ends meet. However, long-form storytelling is what I love to do, and with the help of my patrons I can focus on the big projects closest to my heart and and get them out in the world as soon as humanly possible.

Just as importantly, Patreon allows me to connect with my most ardent fans and get to know them on a more personal level. My patrons see my new work first—sometimes months years before it is available publicly—and become a part of the process by giving me much-appreciated feedback.

In addition to finished pages, patrons get to see the behind-the-scenes part of my process as I share with them my sources of inspiration, my day-to-day life as a full-time cartoonist, and my pencils, inks and other in-process steps to making finished work.

What I'm Working On Now:


I'm currently serializing my new graphic novel, An Embarrassment of Witches, coming out from Top Shelf Productions in Winter 2019. This graphic novel is my second collaboration with Jenn Jordan, my writing partner on Darwin Carmichael is Going to Hell.

Each new page posted also includes the thumb-nailed script, pencils and inks so my Patrons can see the entire creative process from stem to stern. 

New pages are posted every Tuesday and Friday.

Access to finished An Embarrassment of Witches pages starts at the $3 level, with $5+ Patreons getting easy-to-read monthly PDFs collecting all the finished pages and process art from the previous month, plus some exclusive behind-the-scenes notes.

Finally, A Few Concluding Words:

Thanks for taking the time to peruse my page and a special thanks to those of you who have supported my work in the past by buying books and original art, hiring me, or sharing my work with your friends and family. I look forward to getting to know you—my most devoted readers—better in the years to come.

Best,
Sophie

This is my monthly rent, including gas and utilities. Reaching this number will give me some stability in my life and allow me to pick and choose what creative projects I take on more carefully.

If we reach this goal I will e-mail ALL my patrons a PDF of my especially embarrassing early comic attempts that I have carefully hidden away from human eyes.
