Hi there, I'm pokesam! I like to make comics and this will be my very first short story project.

an empty vessel is a story about a bunch of empty astronaut suits in the service of a cosmic god, sent to search the galaxy for planets that hold life. So far, there's only been one found; a flora covered planet the cosmic entity has decided to live near and watch over. Out of fear of harming that which lives on the planet, the astronauts have kept their distance. One day, however, one of them decides to go down and see what life looks like.

Goals for this patreon are:

- To visually develop and embellish the story.
- To keep myself on track with the project and not stray from it or give up on it.
- To make a story that I can really call special and be proud of.

Making a pledge will earn you:
- Early access to the pages as I make them. There should be, at minimum, one or two a week.
- A look at the thumbnails, scripts, and concept sketches.
- Bonus illustrations and visual development pieces.

The story is an experiment with slightly abstract visuals and concepts that lend themselves to metaphors, featuring minimal and specifically situational text, and characters who can only express themselves through body language and shot composition. 

When finished, the story will be released as a whole for everyone to read, but all other content will be exclusive to the patrons here.

I hope you will love and support my weird space kid as they go on their journey of self discovery. Thank you.
