Ep.4: Creating comics on Patreon and YouTube with LavenderTowne

By Iva Mikles •  Updated: Sep 01, 2017 •  Interviews

Haley Newsome a.k.a LavenderTowne is a comic book artist, a Ravenclaw, and a little sleepy.

I write and draw two comics, Unfamiliar (a story about some wee witches) and Disasterpiece (a comedy comic about my life at art school.) I also make some Youtube videos and do lots of random art on the side! I love making things and I spend almost all of my free time working on my comics and my Youtube channel.

She is doing pretty well on Patreon and as she puts it: ” … Patreon is a stable income, which helps me relax and keep working on my comics and videos without having to worry! I sprinkle rewards all throughout the month, and Patrons hear first about new projects!”
