Erik Brooks is creating comics

Greetings Patreon! My name is Erik Brooks and I'm a children's book author/illustrator from Washington state. For the last 7+ years, I've published a comic in my small-town local newspaper, posted every strip on my website and published a successful Kickstarter collection of the first three years (Welcome to Harts Pass). The comic just sort of rolls along as something that I love to do each week and I'd love to give Patreon a try to share it with a larger audience. 

Check out the links above, and if you'd like to support this weekly endeavor then you have my eternal GRRRattitude - plus perhaps a special reward or two.

T. Lewis, pretty much the only comics acquaintance of mine and quite fortunately the syndicated cartoonist of Over the Hedge had this to say about the strip:

"The distinct magic of Erik's work lies in the balance between his sharp-eyed take on human folly - as enacted by a cast of wolverines and assorted critters - and a loving awareness of his characters' natural ways and surroundings. Coupled with warm pen & ink work, deftly evoking Eastern Washington's wild highlands, Harts Pass earns a worthy spot right across the marsh from Pogo's Okefenokee Swamp and just up the trail from Pooh's Hundred Acre Wood."

I'd love to hear your thoughts and thank you for your support!

I'll basically prompt this tier quarterly and we'll do a digital handshake kind of thing depending on when you start.
