I’ve been meaning to do this for ages, and I finally find myself able to. I’ve been running a Patreon campaign for a good few months now, and in that time I’ve gathered a growing band of amazing people who have supported my work. Some offer $1 a month, some a ridiculously generous $50 a month, and I love them all. Some are good friends of mine who continue to amaze me, some are people I’ve never met but owe so much to. Each and every one of them is a star, and several of them are creators and megastars in their own right, with work well worth a gander, if you have by some miracle not come across its magnificence before. And some even have their own patreon accounts running too!
Please raise a glass and join me in showering affection onto:
Thank you all! xx I’m missing a few links. So if you’re one of the heroes on that list and I’ve not linked to your work - do let me know! And if you’re reading BREAKS, are keen to see more of my work or just want to show your support for as little as $12 a year by becoming a patron of my work, you can join the gang here ^_^
Patreon is empowering a new generation of creators. Support and engage with artists and creators as they live out their passions!
I just popped on to send a page snippet out to my shiny patrons, and realised that - thanks to a few recent additions - we’re just $50 away from my first milestone goal! If we hit the goal, I’ll start creating a piece of art exclusively for patreon followers each month, based on patron suggestions. It’ll be an image I won’t post in full anywhere else, and won’t ever print out. Sort of like a group commission every month. ^_^
If you think that sounds kind of cool, or if you’ve been reading www.breakscomic.com and fancy becoming a supporter, do pop along to my patreon account and join the family. You can pledge as little as $1 a month, right up to a crazy generous $50 a month, with various personal rewards - and big group rewards up for grabs if we hit some more milestone goals. Or, as I like to call them - level ups :D
Hey! :) About a Week ago I found this beautiful piece of art and I fell in love with it [the comic]. [It might have something to do with the fact the art reminds me of Alex Rider visual novel which I enjoyed. A lot. ] I'm absolutely amazed by this work and by the way it is going and I'm also super excited. I have a one question tho. I used 2 of your pictures as a draft for a shirt I made and I just wanted to ask if I can post it online? I will credit you and etc. :) Thank you and good luck :)
Aha, I am indeed the current Alex Rider artist, so you did well to spot the connection, haha! ^_^
Thanks so much for the kind comments and omg…you HAVE to send/post pictures of the shirt! We insist! You’re more organised than we are…we’d love to sort some BREAKS merch at some point. But, in the meantime, yes! Show us what you’ve been making please ^____^
(We welcome any creative response! Always the most exciting thing for a creator xx)
Are you an artist? Looking to get into comics? Digital publisher Madefire are running a great competition on DeviantArt to find an artist for their fun new character, Fran. And guess who the writer is?
Yes, the winner will bag themselves a contract with Madefire and will be drawing my script. I’m so excited, you guys! I’ve never written for anyone else before…and having it all tied into a competition with fab judges is very, very cool. Check the link for an interview and more information. I can’t wait to see who gets to draw Fran! ^_^
How exciting to be this close to the first Patreon BREAKS level-up!
If we hit it, it means a new, requested piece of BREAKS art each month. Maybe a backstory moment, an off-page scene we didn’t see in the comic, a potential outcome…anything my lovely patrons can think of.
And $20+ backers will also get each image sent to them as a high resolution file to print out and keep!
I can’t thank existing patrons enough for being so supportive of the comic and of my work. *hug*
And if you’re someone whose been considering joining the BREAKS party, this might be a great time to do it. Together we can hit that first milestone and enter the domain of monthly BREAKS commissions for all patrons. ^_^
