PATREON

 I have never considered art as a career choice- which is why I don’t plan to make a profit out of it.  However, I don’t want it to be a money suck either.  That’s why I aim to keep Blue Rabbit Comics a non profit, bringing in just enough to pay the bills for materials, website hosting, postage, etc.  But for that, I need your help!

 One of the ways that you can support the Blue Rabbit Comics active projects is by pledging on PATREON!  I use patreon as a hosting platform for exclusive content and early comic releases.  The payments for each tier process on the first of the month.  All proceeds from my patreon go directly back into Blue Rabbit Comics.  Some examples of purchases made from proceeds include:  one year of website hosting (bluerabbitcomics.art), cardstock for printing, and convention table fees!  Let’s have a look at the different tier options on my patreon:

Please note, all tiers come with an initial “welcome pack” when an address is provided.  The welcome pack includes a thank you/welcome card and Blue Crew sticker

BLUE CREW: All Access

  The Blue Crew All Access tier gives you a behind the scenes peek at WIPS and access to SFW exclusive illustrations.  You are also able to read the web comic Blue Remedy a week earlier than everyone else, and see the high-res version of social media posted illustrations weeks in advance!  All illustrations are downloadable, and sometimes I will make desktop wallpapers featuring my OCs, or Blue Crew official downloads. You also have access to discount codes for my shop, discounted commissions when available, along with occasional polls to help decide what kind of content will be coming up next! Let’s not forget being added to the “co producers” list, receiving a shout out every month and also being featured on the Meet the Crew portion of my website- linked to the website of your choice!

Blue Remedy

An active project by Blue Rabbit Comics

 

 

 

 

 

 If you have heard of Blue Remedy already- you’re a winner!  If you haven’t…where have you BEEN?

 

 Blue Remedy an original webcomic is my first self-publishing project, and it has taken on a life of it’s own!  I started dreaming up this idea waaaaay back in high school.  At the time it was very different, with a lot of difference in the characters as well.  As time went on and I grew up, so did the story.  Let me tell you a little more about it!  Character introductions will be posted every Sunday in April, so make sure to turn your notifications ON!

Summary 

 Blue Remedy takes place in a metropolis called The City (based off New York City, USA).  It predominantly follows the lives of Nick and Friday, adult best friends and roommates (with some offshoots with other characters of importance).  I would characterize this story as a Drama/ Slice of Life with some fantasy elements and BL/ LGBTQ experiences within.  It is intended to look at the dark and gritty parts of the human condition, delving into many triggering topics and taboos.  There is plenty of comedic relief, romances (that thrive and some that bomb), building friendships, and other happier points as well.  Just like real life, it has its ups and downs…and I am so psyched to share them all with you!

World/Setting

The world that these characters inhabit is exactly like ours, I’ve just named the localities differently.  For example. Colombia is still Colombia, England is still England, and the US is still the US.  But instead of different states, I refer to places as cities, and reference state and city nicknames.  For example, instead of New York City- they live in The City (a nickname given by those who live in the area), New Jersey is Garden City, Las Vegas is Sin City, Connecticut is Nutmeg City…etc etc!  Yes, it is an over simplification- but I don’t care :^) It’s my story and I’m sticking to it!  Knowing the logic behind the names is not that important, but if you are from the area it can be fun to find the little “easter eggs” referencing real places :^)

This story skirts on the edge of what can be scientifically proven and the beliefs of different cultures and peoples.  Straddling this fence is incredibly exciting as a writer, and also lends to easy story telling.  Most of the traditions, taboos, superstitions, etc presented in the story are already known by most of the audience- meaning I don’t have to spend a lot of time fleshing them out. 

Origins and Character Development

I started this project waaaaaaay back in high school.  It started off very differently though.  

Nick is one of my earliest OCs, created in my junior year of high school.  Shortly after him came Ian (he had a different name then).  I put them together in a story that took place in a college town in Spain, but then came the name – Blue Remedy.  I was in an advanced English composition class back then, and I was advised to write about what you know…so I wrote about starting college, and what I thought that would be like and the struggles of leaving home.  I was drawing it traditionally, and I got a good 20 ish pages in before I stopped because I got too busy with school and work.

 As I matured, so did the story.  What I know now is very different than what I knew back then, so I aged up my characters and made some new ones!  Nick and Ian got a revamp (and in Ian’s case, a new name), and the location of the story changed to The City (I have visited New York City on a few occasions, and have lived in other large cities in the past…so that was one of those “write what you know” situations). 

To make the story deeper, I started adding more reoccurring characters based on people I actually knew- starting with Friday!  Since Ian was no longer cast as one of Nicks best buddies, he needed a new BFF.  Friday is based on my real life best friend, who was there since the start of the project way back when!  After Friday came a slew of secondary characters- Dante and Lisa included!  One of the newest mains is Sacha, who I based off a mix of my husband and my brother.  They are both Aries men and are similar in a lot of ways- but also different, since of course my partner treats me differently than my brother would…it helped me to flesh out Sacha’s behaviors to approach him from different angles,

One of the aspects I love about making my characters is that they are based on real people.  It helps me to really develop their good and bad traits without bias, and add some quirky facts about them that I may not have otherwise thought up.  Of course I do mix it up sometimes.  For example, Nick is based off me- but he also loves sweets, which comes from my partner.  Sacha is based off my partner, but he is heavily tattooed and pierced- which is something I enjoy.  Friday, though based on my best friend, hates tomatoes like I do.  Get what I mean? ;^)
