Hi!  I'm an illustrator, comic artist, author, college student, and veteran.
I draw a story-driven tumblr ask blog about a certain stupid orange horse who has a penchant for sticking cameras in other people's houses and cavorting about like a bumbling imbecile.  You may be familiar with the characters and world, but for those of you who are not...

What is Stalkerloo?
Stalkerloo is, well, as stated above, a comic strip which occurs on Tumblr and incorporates the suggestions and inquiries of others into an ongoing structured narrative.  It follows an ever growing cast, starting with a variant of the MLP character Scootaloo.  We follow her through an edgier world than Hasbro would approve of, with espionage units tracking the movements of every other character in order to prevent the repeat of an enemy shapeshifter invasion.  It's also a coming of age tale, dealing with issues of morality, bravery, wisdom, and a social commentary on the creation, operation, and eventual collapse of an Orwellian police state. Not only this, but it also features another storyline with themes of self-exploration, what it means to be yourself, and the power of bonds between others, either with their capacity to destroy to to lift us up. All of this lovingly rendered in painted comic format.

Where can I read this story?
At the moment, I only have it up in Tumblr format, right here.  I plan on changing this in the near future, and who knows?  With your help, I may be able to publish it as an actual comic book!

Why should I support you?
As a college student, I really don't have too much in the way of money.  I tend to take on a variety of design jobs through different companies, take on loads of freelance commissions, and at times open up doodles for donations streams in order to keep my wife and I afloat.  Supporting me through Patreon will help to lighten that financial burden and give me the time to focus on writing and illustrating this story.  It'll help me do what I love - telling stories in comic form.

Wait, what about this "ask" part you mentioned?  How does that play in and who gets to ask?
The "ask" part of the blog pretty much allows you or the readers of the blog to affect the characters in certain ways, to have a hand in the story in some ways. At times, someone will ask a question and it will completely change the direction the story was headed, or how the characters interact with each other and their world.  As for who can ask, anyone can! 

What sort of content does this story have in it?
Well, it's not really a storyline I'd let your kids read.  PG-13, for some disturbing imagery that might come up later, as I've taken cues from H. R. Giger in some of the later character designs. There's also light touches of body horror, invasion of privacy, and some violence. In other words, safe for work (SFW) content for the most part.

I really, really love this story, and am extremely excited to be able to share it with the world.  The thing is, I can't do it without your help.
