Welcome to Blue Mug Productions!

Back around 2007, a crazy group of deviants gathered together to launch a website devoted to their scandalous art and writings, called Blue Mug Productions. Our first project, an adult parody comic, was called The Last Tengu in Paris.
Unfortunately, real life and day jobs kept us from updating as often as we wanted, and our business plan/structure wasn't working for us or our audience, and in 2011 we went on hiatus.. which became quite extended.
However, our desire to continue Tengu and launch other crazy projects is still alive and well! We're getting re-organized, and want to give it another go!


Whyfor Patreon?
The monthly site subscription wasn't working well for anyone. Patreon will allow us to have more of a pay-what-you-want model. It allows more freedom and options for our viewers, as well as more direct interaction with the activity feed/comments/polls/etc. We'll be able to make more of the things that you want to see. It also gives us flexibility - This is not our full time job (yet), so sometimes real life happens to take priority. With Patreon, we're set up so that you only pay for content you actually get! We're using the "pay per piece" option instead of the regular monthly fee, so if we are running slow, you won't be charged. We only get paid if we make things for you.

What lies in store for our Patrons:
  • First and foremost, we're going to start slow and work our way up, so that no one gets overwhelmed by the creative process. Mara and Kalia have been improving their skills over the years, and are super keen on remastering the first 4 issues of Tengu, so they look extra professional and gloriously sexy for your enjoyment. So as we get the ball rolling, Patrons can expect a lot of saucy sketches and pinup illustrations in addition to the new and improved pencils, inks, and colors of the existing Tengu pages.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: We're gonna throw all kinds of art at you guys! But we will only set fully finished Illustrations and Comic pages to be Paid Content. We plan for this to be between 1-4 pieces per month. As we grow, if that changes, we will let you know in advance so you can change your settings if you need to. So set your pledge and maximum amounts accordingly.
  • Future shenanigans: Once we get going, Mara and Kalia will continue to work on a few new pages of the Tengu Comic that were already scripted, and if we get enough support, we will throw the extra monies at our writer and letterer, so they can come back and we can continue our story!
  • The more viewer support we get, the more time we can devote to creating new content. We've got a lot of art ideas and fun merch we want to share with you all, including but not limited to, pins, posters, art books, additional comic series, animations, interactive games, etc. Patrons will always see all content first, before it's released elsewhere! And depending on tier, if you pledge, you will also see the high quality files, some exclusive and uncensored content that we won't post anywhere else, get to test out new features, be entered in contests, get some swag items, vote for what we work on next, and get as many more benefits as we are able to offer. It really all depends on what YOU want from us.

Goals
0% complete
Not that we expect this to be met any time soon.. but just for the heck of it..
This goal would allow the whole team to work on Blue Mug pretty much full time, make more convention/event appearances, hire more spot/guest artists, upgrade equipment, and provide all around more frequent quality content for everyone.
If we begin to near this goal, we will add more benefits for you guys, based on your suggestions/votes.
We will also create a special one-time item to mark the occassion, such as a commemorative pin or shirt (based on your votes), to send to every Patron able to provide a mailing address at the time.
