My name is Cody Hawley
I am a 2015 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, and my comics will be uploaded and remain free to view digitally on Tumblr (Until i can secure a domain name.)
However Patrons will be granted access to these uploads a month in advance before non-patrons!

With enough support, I would also like to send out behind the scenes perks such as animatics, sketches, and even tutorials if I can meet certain stretch 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 comics in the middle of production right now!
Wild Red and 20Frost.

Wild Red
is a space western set on Mars in the not-too-distant future. It follows two orphans as they explore the Martian frontier in search of fame and treasure:
Kidd - an over-imaginative trouble maker who wants nothing more than to witness the myths and legends he heard growing up in his small town; and Abigail - a competitive and explosively passionate girl that wants to become the strongest and most feared bounty hunter on Mars.
They end up in a far more fantastical world than they bargained for with Sand Vikings, colossal insects, tweaked out bandits, wandering cities, forgotten colonies, evil corporations, and a conspiracy to awaken dead gods all loom just beyond the horizon.

20Frost is an episodic comic depicting the fictional game 20Frost. A MMORPG that is set during the Roaring Twenties at the height of prohibition and organized crime. This liquor-punk world is filled to the brim with a cast of colorful characters - from goofy gangs, and smarmy smugglers; to bombastic bounty hunters, and over dramatic detectives. Everyone is looking to either make a fortune in the lucrative underworld of booze smuggling or making headlines by keeping order and peace in Rotor Bay.
