Once I had a friend who had a crazy idea about life. He believed that everything portrayed in a work of fiction exists, somehow, in a parallel universe. That our minds, by some means, can access these universes when we are dreaming, reading, wondering, imagining, or making art. And this was long before Grant Morrisson came up with Multiversity.
For a long time, it was just a good-but-crazy idea to talk about when we had free time, since we were the kind of people who didn’t like to waste time talking about others’ lives. Now, I started to believe it can be true. I won’t ask you to believe it, I’ll just tell you why I start to believe it.
Ever since I was a child, I created characters of my own. When I would play with my toys, my action figures were not the ones people would see. In my mind, He-man was not actually He-man, but  Eternal, a police officer from the future who would get a new life from a god in a dead-end moment of his existence. Batman was not Batman, but Cerberus, a man in armor cursed by a family legacy to protect people around him. I was 10 when I began to create these characters. I would draw them, talk to my friends about them, put them all together in a timeline of a shared universe making perfect sense to me. I was 14 when my friends stopped wanting to hear about them, so I decided to put them aside and move on.
People were still interested in my drawings, writings, and ideas, so I decided to keep learning about these subjects. But, since we all need to make money to earn a living, I used those skills in the most ordinary way possible. I became a teacher, which was a pretty good profession. I had a job that I mostly enjoyed.
But what do I do with Eternal and Cerberus? They keep showing up in my mind, now with several friends and enemies, and they live in a huge city with buildings, creatures and vehicles considerably different than our own. They keep pushing to come out. I have to do something about it, or I will end up locked in a small room wearing a white jacket.
In order to do so I need your help. I have bills to pay and my sanity to keep. I ask you to be my patron. If you do so, you will get to know a Brave New World full of people, settings, stories and ideas that will open your mind to a different perception. A better one, perhaps.
My project is called Antropolis, and is about a city in an island chain isolated from the rest of the world due to a quantum accident that bent the flow of time. Now, people and creatures of many different periods of past, present and future history live together and share technology and culture in the same civilization. My comics are about the citizens of this city.

Goals
$0 of $1,000 per month
It will start with concept arts and pin ups. If I can make $1000 per month, my art will become more elaborate. In addition, exclusive material (including some comic pages once in a while) will be available for patrons, since I’ll have enough money to quit one of my jobs that has nothing to do with arts (unless you consider that everything we do could be a piece of art played on the stage of life).
