About The Giant Rat


I'm a cartoonist and zine slapper-togetherer who loves to make art out of garbage. By working with what I have rather than trying to confine myself to a "standard" I strive to make unique comics that flip over rocks and poke around in the inky vagueness of the human experience, usually involving piles of squirming creatures and sprawling patterns.

I'm all over the place in terms of what I do, and typically have a few projects in the works at any given time. I've made a ton of zines and have a regularly updating art blog, a longterm project, and am easily distracted with other bite size projects! I also poke around in search of paid gigs, so if you need my talents for anything, i, like, do that.

This Patreon exists because paper is expensive! Focusing on traditional media and print floppies means I have to fund my projects on an ongoing basis. Being able to say that people who care about my scribbles are the ones buying my ink makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, and I'm honored to say in the couple years this has been around, you guys have not only funded my zinemaking, but even been a huge part in funding my tables at magical, faraway festivals like NOCAZ, Portland Zine Symposium, Gender Unbound, Alaska Robotics, DZF, and SDZF.

Because my work schedule and brain chemistry is stacked against regular schedules, this Patreon is first and foremost a tipjar. Most things I make come here first, including comics and zines, and $5 patrons get a mailed treat every month, but some months that'll be TONS OF STUFF and others it'll be more chill. I'm thrilled to have you along for the ride!!

Thanks for reading!
