 WELCOME! 
Hello, and welcome to my Patreon page! My name is Tony Cooper, an author and artist living in the Midlands, England.



 WHO AM I? 
A question I ask myself daily. As of now, I am someone who writes novels, short stories and comics, all of which tend to have a dark, psychological side to them. I am currently writing a series of British superhero novels called the "Powerless" series (see all my self-published work on Amazon), as well as writing and drawing a graphic novel series about a pair of highly-intelligent, psychopathic school students, called "The Murder Club".

Previously, I worked in the videogames industry for sixteen years as a QA tester and Level Designer, and before that, I did Christmas work in Argos, although I am not sure that one's entirely relevant.

 WHY AM I HERE? 
Well, this has gone existential pretty quickly, so I'd better move on...

I would love to devote my whole time to my writing and art, so I can make as much work as possible for people to enjoy. However, time is money, and vice-versa. The more time I spend doing freelance work to pay the bills, the less time I have for creating.

Right now, I am deep in the roughs of "The Murder Club", a 114-page graphic novel I would dearly love to have completed and published by August 2017. I fully intend this to become a series (I have all future volumes planned out), but I am currently fitting in the art around paid work, and I am concerned I simply won't have the hours to make the planned release date a reality.

Have a look at The Murder Club website - it's very simple for now, but you can go to my Blog and Facebook from there, to see more details and early roughs of the project. And I have included some art below this chunk of text, to whet your appetite.

If you're the kind of person who enjoys the kind of work I make, then even a small donation each month will go towards helping me make more stuff for you. So I see it as a win-win for the both of us!



 WHAT DO YOU GET? 
Ah, that's more like it. Time to tell you about the "stuff" :)

There are monthly donation tiers from $2 all the way to $50, depending on what you're comfortable giving, and for each you get access to different rewards.

So at the $2 tier, for example, you get all my digital work so far - so that's four ebooks and one 24-page comic! Also you get access to my Patreon-only blog feed, where I will be posting previews of my art and writing, monthly Q&A sessions, and you get to comment at me. It's what the Internet was made for!

As another example, at the $10 tier, you get EARLY ACCESS to all my written and art work - so you will read first drafts of my upcoming novels and see blue pencil roughs (with dialogue) of my latest comics, with the ability to give feedback and comments

For full details, have a read down the sidebar to the right.

 THANKS! 
Even a small monthly donation goes a long way towards the next novel, next comic or piece of art.

Thanks for reading, and an even bigger thanks if you donate!
Tony.

Goals
$0 of $250 per month
For my $250 goal, I will create a special, colour art book for "The Murder Club". This will include all the main covers, all interstitial chapter 'covers' coloured, and exclusive new colour artwork just for this book. It will also have WIP sketches and a written commentary on each piece from myself.
All tiers will receive a digital copy, and all donating $10 and above will receive a physical version too.
