I’m Tanner Simmons, an illustrator/writer/comic-maker with lots of charisma and probably too much hair. Looks like you’ve stumbled headfirst into my little nook of the web, glad you could make it! Since you’re already here, let me give you a little taste of what I do:


This Is Jim (Tapastic) (Webtoons)

This Is Jim is a graphic novel project I started back in September of 2015 that focuses on the inner thoughts and emotions of a man named Jim. Each page is a window into a different moment in his life told out of order, focusing on memories both existential and mundane. A story influenced by personal experiences and stories told to me by countless individuals, This Is Jim rides on an emotional rollercoaster filled with somber notes and absurdist humor. The first chapter of this project (titled “This Is Jim”) was released online in its entirety in the form of daily updates until its last update on May 23rd, 2017. Jim is now currently running again as a second chapter titled "I'm Sorry Jim" (Monday through Friday!), which my Patreon subscribers will have access to early. Be sure to follow Jim's antics by liking the "This Is Jim" page on Facebook!


The Whatever Chronicles (Home Site) (Tapastic) (Webtoons)

The Whatever Chronicles
is a strip-format webcomic I started back in August of 2014 that chronicles the antics of a 23-year-old nitwit as he’s tasked by his newly acquired fairy companion to stop an ancient celestial evil from destroying their world. It’s a comic that thrives on character dialogue and plays off various Hero’s Journey/video-game tropes for its storytelling and comedic delivery. Updates every Monday and Friday! Also be sure to head over and like "The Whatever Chronicles" page on Facebook!


Illustration Work (Website)

Aside from my comic projects, I also do a fair amount of illustration work in my spare time just to mix things up. A lot of original pieces, some fan art here and there...it’s a good time. Plus, if you’re one of my $2+ Patreon supporters, you’ll get to see my process work on each of these pieces as they’re being worked on. Bonus!

My goal is to someday support myself completely on my own art projects and freelance work, and that’s why I’ve set up shop here on Patreon. With the help of my fans, I can continue to work towards my goal of forwarding myself as a creative and eventually sustain my lifestyle as a full-time self-employed artist. The Whatever Chronicles and This Is Jim are both projects that I always intend to offer FOR FREE online, as I believe art should be shared, not hoarded. That being said, gaining your support through Patreon allows me to put more time into sharing more exciting content with you, like my works in progress, commentary, and also hi-resolution versions of my art for you to enjoy that you can’t get anywhere else. Don’t have the cash to support me financially? No biggie, but always feel free to share my work with your pals and see if they’d be willing to toss a dollar or two per month my way. It all goes a long way and helps me get that much closer to my goals.

Thanks so much for dropping in guys, I hope you’ll stay tuned for all the fun! And even if you can’t donate, be sure to follow my page for consistent updates and finished art that I share publicly. Stay beautiful everybody.

Oh man, two dollars at once? That deserves special access to my works in progress, process gifs, scribbles, notes, and other creative tinkerings of mine! How about that?

Hey hey, look at moneybags here! As a special thank you for contributing at this tier, you'll get access to this cool stuff:

- Digital e-books of my work as they are put together.

- The link to a shared drive where you can view/download every TWC strip I make at their original resolution (and gosh are they pretty).

Wow, you must really be into what papa's cookin'! For pledging such a grand sum of money, I will send a "This Is Jim" or "The Whatever Chronicles" postcard to you, a different one every month!

Goals
$22 of $100 per month
If I reach $100 a month, I'll start a bonus spin-off comic series of strips for The Whatever Chronicles where your favorite characters will take questions from fans and answer them! What's Jeffrey's shoe size? Is Fairy single? Think of the possibilities!
