I'm a Graphic designer, digital and webcomic artist. Looking to unify design, good humor and fun in every one my works.|
I'm been a comic strip lover since I have the memory, glancing through the pages of the local newspapers, looking for the Sundays comics. Starting my own histories when I was little, with borrowed characters from awesome artist like Jim Davis, Charles Schultz, Bill Watterson and many others.
It wasn't until I graduated from High School since I decided to pursue my passion and dedicate my hearth and soul into my arts, opting for a career that would help me in one way or another to get me closer to my goal.
In November of 2009 I joined DeviantArt, full of fears and insecurities about my own quality as an artist in the vast world of the internet. And I was right, I sucked. But thankfully that never stopped me from giving my whole. Since I've been trying to deliver the best quality of artwork I can possibly make for all of you to enjoy.
And I really hope you do
I didn’t know what the internet was, nor the fact that I could share my work with you, let alone that I would be doing it in another language!
It wasn’t always easy, but when many doors were closing shut right on my face and hitting me on the nose, others were opening, leading me here without realizing it.
I’ve been looking for around 5 years a way to make a living through my art and don’t starve in the process. PayPal turned out to be a dead end for me, as well as many others, but most recently I heard about this platform called Patreon, believing at first that I would have the same kind of issues or that it could be just impossible for me.
However, it turned out to be the other way around! It’s what I was craving for way back, it’s actually perfect! Another way to connect with you through my art, getting feedback and support at the same time, what else do you need?
At first I got the idea of “paywall” or “pay-per-view” from this platform, and I never liked the concept. I think that just breaks the relationship between artist and you as the spectator. Although, at the same time, I have needs and bills to pay like everybody else, and I knew I needed to find a balance between those two aspects, but how…?
Then I fell in love with the idea of crowdfunding, people voluntarily supporting the projects they want to see, instead of taking what society or the big companies want to stuff in their face
It’s a new type of economy! It’s pretty awesome! It’s giving the small people like us a wider variety of choice and power to take decisions! Or at least until some corporate decides to ruin it all, as usual. Don’t worry, though! We’ll find another way if that ever happens XD
I thought that Patreon could be a good opportunity to dedicate my time and effort entirely on what I love to do, making you have a great time with my silly comic ideas
It’s an overwhelming opportunity, indeed!
I know it won’t be easy. By now, I’ve proven that nothing worthy in life comes easy, but with your support, I know we can make it work out
This doesn’t mean that all my works are becoming private or pay-per-view, either. No way! It means that you have the chance to support me in a direct way if you like it. Ultimately I work for you
I’ve already thought of special rewards for my patrons, from WIPs to special artworks that I will be making. I'll be taking suggestions from you as well, related to the type of artworks, game or characters that you would love to see depicted in the gallery. I will also be submitting everything first on Patreon, later on other social media.
I’ve already worked a special comic, available at any pledge you make, featuring one of my original characters from the 4 of a Kind comics (I don’t want to spoil which one), that also includes a cute reward attached to it. You should check it out and tell me if you like the idea behind it (because I want to include them more often)
After all I’ve announced, I will also be interested in your feedback for the Patreon page. I’ll be reading all your comments and suggestions to improve it even further, adding rewards to pledges, kind of content you’d love to see there, and switching stuff around.
Thanks a lot for your support, favs, likes, shares, laughs, lols, comments and everything throughout the years. Without you, this would all be pointless. I’ll be waiting for your comments!
Back to the working table now!
