Tom Neely is creating Comics and Art
44

patrons

I am an artist who has been working in comics and illustration for 20 years. I'm most known for the infamous Henry & Glenn Forever series of comics and the Image series The Humans I co-created with Keenan Marshall Keller. I've also self-published many of my own books including my graphic novels The Blot and The Wolf. I do a lot of music related illustration as well. You can see more of my portfolio at www.iwilldestroyyou.com

THE GOAL: I am starting this patreon to help fund the production of a few comics projects I am working on this year. Some of you may not know that when working on an independent book like The HUMANS, I am not being paid a page-rate to produce the book. We are creating it on our own and we don't make any money until the issues have been published and sold. And the first issue won't come out until I have drawn 5 issues - That means I have roughly 120-140 pages to draw without a paycheck! That's why I've turned to Patreon to ask some of my fans to become Patrons of the creation of my books. Any amount helps keep me going while I tackle some large projects. Part of the goal is to not have to take on additional freelance work, so I can stay focused on these comics projects and bring you more of what you want: The HUMANS, Henry & Glenn, and more! 

Here are some of the projects I want to complete this year and beyond:
1) The Jungle - the next 5 issue mini series continuing the saga of The HUMANS.
2) The Devil - my personal graphic novel that I am writing and drawing.
3) “TMG” - an exciting new project to be announced at a later date - Patrons will be the first to know!
4) A new Henry & Glenn Forever comic special that I am beginning to write now. 

By joining me as a patron, I will let you into my studio and the process of creating these books with blogs, videos, interviews, how-to demos, and more. I will also share some of my earlier, out of print comics and art with you. If you've followed me on Instagram (@iwilldestroytom), you know I like to share my works in progress. But here, I hope to expand on that and allow more incite into my process. And since this is a more private group of Patrons, I hope to be more interactive with all of you to help make this a more fun experience for all of us. Come help me build these comics from the ground up! 

Thank you and I hope you will join me and support my journey as an artist.
