Hello! My name is Caytlin Vilbrandt and I’m on Patreon to fund the creation of my weekly webcomic, Tamberlane.



One day, the citizens of Treehollow discovered a small, strange creature wandering alone in Rattleglen Forest. Clearly much too young to be on her own, and with limited verbal communication skills (though she gets by with a little sign language), it’s anyone’s guess how this mysterious being, named Tamberlane, ended up in their care.

Fostered by Belfry, the accident-prone bat with a heart of gold, and guided by a colorful cast of animal characters, Tamberlane’s mysteries continue to unfold. But one question remains on everyone’s mind: who (or more specifically, what) is she?

Tamberlane updates every Wednesday and is rated PG13 for casual nudity.

What You'll Get By Becoming a Patron

By backing Tamberlane on Patreon, you'll receive exclusive perks like:

  • Early page updates
  • Access to the Dreamy Star Comics Discord to chat with the creator and receive exclusive patron news and updates
  • Postcards in the mail featuring both comic and original art
  • Access to bonus content like exclusive patron-only comics, sketches, process videos, tutorials, and more!
  • Downloadable art files
  • Merchandise
  • Lifetime rewards based on duration of your pledge
  • You even have the option to become a character in the comic!
Rewards are divided into the following categories, rated 1-5 stars that correspond with level of access. Pledging to a higher tier means you get all of the rewards from the previous tier and then some.



Interact with the artist and other members of the Tamberlane comic community via Discord and here on Patreon. You’ll also get to participate in patron-only polls and provide feedback on the content you’d like to see!



Preview all comics and time-lapse process videos before they’re released to the public! Plus, you’ll gain exclusive access to behind-the scenes content like progress sketches and thumbnails, character Q&A comics, patron-only blog posts, artist’s commentary on comic pages, and other Patreon-exclusives not available anywhere else.



Receive access to digital goods such as high-resolution comic pages, layered art files (in .clip format), a download of Chapter 1 with bonus content and commentary, and my sketchbook PDF, which features both Tamberlane and personal art.



For those who like tangible goods, joining the Swag Society will earn you physical mailed goods, such as art postcards and new merchandise. Patrons of higher tiers will receive quarterly shipments of any recently produced merch as it becomes available.



Get monthly custom sketch commissions and even become a recurring character in the comic! You also have the option to receive a drawing of your original character in Tamberlane style outside of the comic storyline.


Sounds Great, Doesn't It?
But that's not all! Not only do I create Tamberlane, but I draw other things too! I have two other comics in production, plus a multitude of personal projects and unrelated drawings. Patrons get access to all of my art! That's like double the rewards!
