Our names are Nick & Cyan Crotser
You might know us from our portfolios on art sites such as Weasyl or SoFurry, you may even be familiar with Nick from his previous work on the underground comics Law of the Stars or Sam & Molly.
We are a husband and wife team of artists who will be using Patreon for those who are willing to support our continued work, as well as be able to listen to and value the opinions of any who contribute.
Pledges of any size mean we can worry less about paying bills and worry more about making and sharing with you the art and stories we love. (by the way, if you have any insights on making the reward tiers better, let us know, we’d love to hear them!)
We always have a list of new projects we can work on, we will let contributors weigh in on what they'd like to see next. By becoming a Patron, you will be helping us create and distribute the art and worlds we love. For your continued patronage you can expect short stories, sketches, digital, traditional, comic pages, concepts, and of course collaborations.
- Clan Rikier - It's the late 1980's and John is a sales clerk working at MuZiks, a record store nestled snugly on the first floor of a quiet mid-western shopping mall. At 20 years old, John has dreams of making it big as a rock star. The only problem is that nobody's paying attention to this quiet corner of the world. The everyday adventure of strange customers and fun times with friends breaks the monotony of waiting to make it big.Clan Rikier is currently viewable on Patreon and at ClanRikier.Online
- The Adv. Of Laika – Following an accident after launch, Soviet space dog Laika finds herself lost in space and time. Shortly after arriving in this strange new world, Laika learns of the plot of the sinister Foreman Rhey, an alien bent on locating Earth and enslaving it’s natives to support his vast mining empire. Joined by Koniko, a fellow Earthling from another time and a creature known simply as “A.P.” whose home planet was all but destroyed by Rhey’s actions, they must work together to undermine Rhey’s efforts and make it back home in one piece.

To quote David Hopkins “[We] want to give you stories that you keep thinking… long after you’ve read it... to give a damn about whether or not the character survives the story. [We] want to hit you on a gut level where you're unsure about what you’ve just seen but you ultimately feel like a better person because of it.”
In my art I tend to favor Retro-futurism, Science Fiction, Anthropomorphism, and Geometry. My art style is influenced by greats such as David Hopkins, John Kricfalusi and Jhonen Vasquez. In addition to one-off type illustrations and concepts, I will be continuing work on Clan Rikier, a slice of life webcomic spin-off of Sam & Molly, following John, a fledgling guitarist making his way in the the world. With the help of our Patrons, work will begin on the much awaited The Adventures of Laika, a science-fiction/adventure/romance comic whose digital release will be a Patreon exlusive! Online, I use the handle "SweettheSour"
Hi, I use the handle "CyianceFiction". I tend to favor Anthropomorphism, Fantasy and Science Fiction. My art is heavily organic in style and often long and fluid. I make one-off pieces of characters of my own often. Along side one-offs, I work with Nick on Clan Rikier. I am also working on a comic project of my own called Roseiana, which features my characters (Ami, Sano, Kaito, ect.) in their own world.
