About the artist:
Hi There! My name is Nicholas Kole, I’m a freelance Character Designer and Illustrator with 8 years of experience bringing fantasy worlds to life through animated shows, comics, video-games and children’s books.
I’m setting out to build enough work for an art book (and more) about the World of Jellybots!

Why hello there, Jellyfam, and a very swell weekend to thee!
Welcome to the first of several ~dossiers~ intended to bring everyone up to speed on some core elements of the Jellybots world.If you’re here and you’ve pledged any amount of money, it’s very likely that you know a little bit or a lot bit about the world of Jellybots. But it’s *also* possible that you are just exceedingly kind and generous and haven’t got a clue what I’m going on about.Even more likely than both is that I, like many dopes lost in the tunnel vision of Making A Thing, have assumed my vague hinting and allusions to bits of story and world have been terribly obvious when, in fact, they super duper have not.Whatever the reason, here we all are- and for the uninitiated, the baffled, the bemused, and the befuddled, the overinformed and underinformed- here’s the deal with: Frontier Academy!

SHOW NOTES
Oh hi and welcome back to the show Nicholas! The last time we talked to you….

Jellybots
So tell us about Jellybots!
I remember seeing Jellybot sketches when I first found your work on DeviantArt. How long has Jellybots been a “thing” in your world?
Technical stuff
A development project on Patreon is pretty unique. How did you come up with the structure for your Patreon campaign?
Patreon vs. Kickstarter. How did you decide what platform was right for Jellybots?
Any advice for artists out there wanting to start their own Patreon page or project?
Creative Stuff
How much time do you dedicate to Jellybots each day?
Jelly! Brilliant. The substance lends itself to a unique visual quality. How much jelly did you have to study or eat to understand jelly? Challenges? Solutions?
LISTENER QUESTIONS
Ben Riley @aquebb
Why is it that only children can harness the Jelly? Differences in the limbic system between adults + kids where the amygdala is, perhaps?
Teknobabel @Teknobabel
Where do babies come from.
