About Jen Bateman

Jen Bateman is a 42 year-old, agender/non-binary multimedia and performance artist, illustrator, photographer, writer, and public speaker on the autism spectrum who works with the guiding philosophy that, "Life is art." Jen is best known for their introspective blogging and vlogging, slice-of-life webcomics, meticulous ink illustrations, vintage-inspired styling, and fondness for rats.

Jen Bateman's dynamic, autobiographical work explores the complexity of identity and self-image in the modern world. It fearlessly bridges the gap between colourful humour and difficult subjects such as anxiety, depression, mental illness, love, neurodiversity, and disability. Jen uses They/Them/Sir pronouns.

Jen Bateman is married to musician and visual artist Dan Bateman.

Pledging $1.00 or more per month to support Jen's work will grant you:

  • An ad-free, algorithm-free venue to follow new posts and work.
  • Exclusive access to work-in-progress photos and videos, as well as accompanying commentary and personal thoughts about the creative process.
  • Exclusive access to more frequent and informal personal blog updates.
  • Priority response to  comments, questions, and DMs via the Patreon Inbox.
  • The ability to see new artwork and comics before the general public.
  • The ability to purchase new original artwork before the general public.
  • The ability to request custom 2.5" x 3.5" watercolour and ink sketch cards.
  • The ability to request commissions and access the commission wait list. Please be aware that this is not a guarantee that a commission request will be accepted, and that the wait list is frequently 12-24+ months due to the slow nature of the work process. Jen reserves the right to reject any request they are uncomfortable with.
  • Discounted/reduced pricing on original artwork and sketch cards if they are purchased before being made available for sale to the general public.
  • Discounted/reduced pricing on commissions based on your cumulative past Patreon contributions and length of your Patreon subscription.

Becoming a patron is the ONLY way to request custom art or commissions. Very few commissions are accepted. Commercial art, logos, sequential art, full-book illustration projects, or web design are not accepted.
