By Request Extra: Patreons For Carol Tyler, Rich Tommaso
Tracking creator Patreon accounts has been slightly more difficult than I thought it would be. One reason is that the creators themselves tend to dip into and out of various community fundraising methods including Patreon. I will endeavor to do better.
A quick look around reveals two veteran alt-comics creators have jumped back onto Patreon with campaigns aimed at specific projects. The wonderful cartoonist Carol Tyler is looking for support
to complete The Ephemerata: Shaping the Exquisite Nature of My Grief
. That next book is about a recent period of great and repetitive personal loss for the artist, and the oncoming public takeover of her home. Tyler's plan is to relocate to a farm she's rehabilitating -- there will likely be another focused fundraising campaign to cover some of those
costs. This one is for the comics work, and there can never be enough support for comics work from Carol Tyler.
Rich Tommaso is asking for support in making his Black Phoenix
, a multiple-serial, multiple-genre magazine that looks as if it will seek to take advantage of Patreon's ability to create and fulfill a market's desire for a work without outside factors coming to bear. Tommaso is an influential visual creator, and his recent work has been great-looking.
I don't always see everything on my own.
