Hi! I'm Vanessa Cohen, also known as vanessasketch, and I'm a full-time freelance illustrator and comic artist. I am also a co-writer for the independent crime noir film Downcast, as well as an actor in it, and occasional game streamer.

Since being a full-time freelancer is hard going, doubly so with my chronic pain issues, and what I really want to do is my webcomic Arcane Eon full time, I created this Patreon to help with that.

So what is this Arcane Eon you just mentioned?

An fantasy adventure noir ongoing webcomic with an art deco aesthetic. In the world of Arcane Eon, magic is very real, both in nature itself and in the people. The Venetronus Order, an international organization, protects and monitors magic in all its forms. Adepts (magic users) must either receive special license or serve as a Venetronus once identified. Three Venetroni, Mariel Seier, Nolen Silver, and Jase Allgood, have been tasked with tracking down the first ever thief into the Order's Archives, where almost every bit of magical knowledge and artifacts are kept. On Jase's advice they start by seeking information from a former Venetronus, Vera Malnory, who works as a bootlegger in the floating metropolis of Zedor City. While the Venetroni track down their thief, Vera's got her own problems to contend with. Just what the thief is after, and why, will change their beliefs in magic, and maybe even their belief in the Venetronus Order itself.

I have been working on this comic for over a decade now, and I'm extremely excited to finally be able to bring it to all of you!

And this will be free to read for everyone?

Yep! Arcane Eon is free for everyone to enjoy.

What will my patronage do?

Allow me to prioritize Arcane Eon, so I don't need to take as much freelance work in order to pay the bills. Eventually, I hope that it will allow me to do AE full time!

And what do I get for funding you?

Access to exclusive sketches and content, tutorials, previews of pages before they go live, first access to new pages, even guest appearances for you or your own character in the comic! All sorts of goodies. Not to mention my eternal thanks and gratitude.

With your help, I can make comics for everyone to enjoy and fulfill my dream of making comics that I've worked toward my whole life. Thanks for reading and considering!

Anyone pledging at this level, thank you so much!

In addition to access to sketches, previews, and wallpapers, the button, a softcover copy of chapter 1, and digital sketchbook, you can have yourself or an original character of yours appearing in Arcane Eon! Please keep in mind that the world of AE does not have elves, dwarves, ect., and some slight changes might need to be done to fit you in. But it won't be just an appearance, oh no, you'll also have spoken dialogue! I will show you your guest appearance before anyone else, as well. You will be part of the Arcane Eon world!

You will also receive a one-time thank you sketch, delivered right to you!
