Yosiell Lorenzo is creating Sicklings and the Orphans
23

patrons


My name is Yosiell Lorenzo and I'm an artist living and working in Oakland, CA. I grew up in the New England area, raised on a healthy dose of both fantasy creatures with movies like The Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal, and stories of haunted houses, ghosts, witches, with a dose of the world of Edward Gorey. On a dark and moonless night in 2011, I started sculpting mysterious forest creatures that came to be known as the Sicklings. Around this same time, I also started illustrating The Orphans of Dudleytown. Over the subsequent years, I’ve expanded both of their worlds. The origin of the Sicklings are mysterious but we do know they live in Somber Hollow, an underground “town” that's part of the elusive Black Twig Forest. The Orphans, on the other hand, are the spirits of kids that reside in Dudleytown in the 1800s. They await Halloween night, when the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest, to have their Halloween carnival and parade while trying to make contact with the living.



Why Patreon?
With Patreon I want to share more of both of these worlds by showing the process for developing these pieces, something I don't really share on any other social media platform. This will include in-depth process photos and videos including materials and sneak peeks of new sicklings, orphans, and ways these worlds will be expanded. I will post ideas of upcoming works. Depending on the tier, you can participate in polls on suggestions on what should be released next. The final tier includes a physical reward like The Guardian. These will be shipped to the address you provide and any shipping fees are included in your pledge. Please make sure your contact and shipping information is up to date. Following are some of the physical rewards.





If you are a first time patron you can find answers to most of your questions in the FAQ section. By becoming a patron you'll be supporting the arts along with the creation of both of these worlds. You can cancel or adjust your pledge whenever you want.

Thanks for swinging by and checking this out. Your support makes all of this possible!!
