"Hey Erin, what is Stranded on Earth??"
Stranded on Earth is the name of my comic underworld. In it, you’ll find a story about an alien named Oswag just trying to figure this whole life-on-Earth thing out. He’s also got a family back on his home planet of Larsonia trying to figure the whole life-without-Dad thing out. There is also a separate story involving a macabre, lonely, but sweet little girl named Leora who occasionally summons her demon friend, the Grumptipus, for advice and companionship. Lastly, you’ll find tons of random one-off comics, called Magnificent Randos, that come around whenever they strike me. Currently, I’m developing a new thread called The Egghead Plushpuppets, an anachronistic puppet show that channels my rage through political and social satire. Scroll down to see more! 


"What is Patreon??"
Patreon is a crowdfunding platform, similar to Kickstarter, that allows people to fund their favorite artists' work. The difference between it and Kickstarter is that when you become a patron, your contribution is ongoing until you choose to cancel it. You can choose a monthly subscription, or to contribute once per published artwork. Any amount you contribute makes artists lose their minds with gratitude!

All artists on Patreon get their own page. This one will be a hub for all my art-related endeavors, including ink illustrations, journal comics, Stranded on Earth world-building, portraits of real and imagined people, new comic characters I'm playing around with, and basically anything I'm working on! If you already like what I do, then chipping in $1 or more a month will help ensure I can keep making comics, illustrations, and portraits, like this one below (but better).  Plus, you get rewards! 

"So, why are you doing this?"
Art has been a love of mine since childhood, and I mainly kept it up as a hobby, but now I wish to transition into making art my career. Ever since I launched Stranded on Earth in 2014, I've been improving my skills, technique, and visual storytelling instincts. I want to continue realizing my developing potential and with your help, I can do just that, which means more weird art for you! Thanks for your kind attention. 

...and now, an above-ground pool full of zombie bunnies, raawrr!

At this goal, I can reorganize and revamp strandedonearthcomic.com with better webhosting, more content, better user-friendliness, and a design that best suits the Stranded style.
