About Caytlin Vilbrandt

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 sketches, patron-only posts, tutorials, and more!
  • Downloadable art files
  • Merchandise
  • Lifetime rewards based on duration of your pledge
  • Discounts on merch and commissions
  • 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 new merchandise you’d like to see made!

Preview all comics before they’re released to the public! Plus, you’ll gain exclusive access to behind-the scenes content like progress sketches and thumbnails, patron-only 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 tiers with Swag Society rewards will earn you physical mailed goods, such as art postcards and new merchandise like pins, stickers, keychains, and more!

Get a chance to become a recurring character in the comic! Pledge to the Possum President tier and you’ll get a 25% discount and first dibs on any commission slots as they become available.

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!
