My name is Cody Hawley
I am a recent graduate of the Kansas City Art Institute (KCAI) and a Freelance Animator.

Why are you here?
I've been drawing comics and cartoons since I was in pre-school. They were always about elaborate adventures across deep space, or finding treasure in your back yard. Upon discovering Homestar Runner and Newgrounds, Animation became the next leap forward from static images to literally bringing these adventures to life.

Creating these worlds and telling these stories has been my sole motivation and I want to be successful in doing what I feel I've been destined to do.

Why should I support you?
I aim to work on my projects full-time. Even over-time!
My passion is what drives me, and if it is fueled enough, I can pull 80 hour work weeks.

However a lot of my time is consumed by working a full time job, so I have next to no time to work on my own projects, other than short loops, sketches and simple illustrations.

Your support will allow me to freely create animations, cartoons, comics, and illustrations. While my videos will remain free on YouTube, think of this as a tip jar where you pay what you think I deserve!

Where is my money going?

The money I receive here will go towards living expenses such as rent, food, utilities, and help pay off my student debt!
If I start getting enough support, I can use the funds to upgrade my computer, work space, and hardware!
I aim to get my own small studio space so I'm not stuck at home 24/7.

What do I get out of it?
My videos will be uploaded and remain free to view on Youtube, however supporters will receive behind the scenes perks such as animatics, sketches, and even comics and commissions if I can meet certain goals!I have a firm belief in sharing assets with aspiring artists. So many of my rewards allow you to learn intimately from my process to apply to your own craft as you see fit.

What projects can I expect?
I have handfuls of projects in the works, but I have 2 projects ready for production right now!
One called [R.E.M.] and the other called Flintlock Jones!

[R.E.M.] is an action comedy about 6 teens trapped in the dream-scape! They are on a mission to find a way back to the waking world, but dream logic and non sequiturs warp their perception of the world around them! With the help of their guide Virgil and his mysterious briefcase, he bestows the gang lucid powers to conquer their nightmares and return home!
The series will run for 13 episodes, running around 5 minutes per video.

Flintlock Jones is about the titular Paranormal Detective and his overly eager partner Sigaleous O'Connor. Sig is clumsy, energetic, and infinitely more naive. Flintlock is dead-set in his ways and sees the world through noir tinted glasses; He tries to play it cool and collected, but when Sigaleous or the baffling world they live in doesn't abide by the script in his head, his facade breaks with explosive results.
The two set off to solve Paranormal crimes and disturbances in the crooked city of Eventide. They tackle pilfering poltergeists, wild werewolves, alien agents, and seemingly cordial demons!
The series will run indefinitely. Following a monster of the week formula, that will run the course of several plot arcs. Each episode will run between 5 and 7 minutes.
