Hey, I'm Dave! I'm the creator of a webcomic about a guy with glasses called MercWorks.

I'm a writer and artist whose focus is to create work that's both fun and joyful (even if it's a bit sad sometimes). I usually make comics but I've been known to dip my toes into games and animation too.

I've made comics about how Peach and Bowser spend their time togethera salesman who goes on a spiritual journey while choking on his own fist, and how to date in a confusing world. I've also produced two animations about the saddest man to ever live.

Basically my work is funny, existential, sad, and a lot of fun.

I've got countless ideas for new projects - and I want you to help me make them.

What is Patreon?


Patreon is a service where you can pledge to send a regular payment to creators, so they can keep making new stuff for you to enjoy.

It's a reliable source of income to help a creator make stuff independently of advertising income, sponsorships, and commissions.

How often do I pay?

You get to decide how much you want to pledge and you'll pay once per month.

Why do you need the money?

My income comes from MercWorks, commissions, conventions, and Patreon. All of those things take a part of my time, and only Patreon leaves me time to experiment and explore new projects. Money from Patreon goes toward development of new projects, software, equipment, and sometimes coffee.

What's in it for me?

Patrons who pledge $1 or more get one piece of bonus content every month.  Wallpaper for your lock screen, an early comic, or just some sweet exclusive art - it could be anything but it'll definitely be cool. You'll also get access to the MercWorks Patreon Kids Facebook group, where you can take part in discussions about the latest stuff I'm working on or even talk about your own projects.

Plus, you can take part in our regular Comics Club discussions and join our Discord server.

Pledge $3 a month and you'll get bonus content every week. Behind-the-scenes videos, dissections on the inner workings of comics and all of the stuff I already mentioned!

Pledge $15 a month and you get to take part in the DrunkDraw, a monthly video drink-and-draw with me, your fellow Patrons, and a guest star cartoonist. You've gotta be of legal drinking age to participate in the drinking part, but the drawing is always a blast.

Will I get previous Patron-only content when I subscribe?
Yes, but only after your first payment has been processed (which happens at the beginning of the month)

Anything to declare?
The main series of MercWorks is paid for by Webtoon and I frequently take on commissions. While your pledges don't go directly toward the development of MercWorks, that money is used in developing new projects and exclusive art for Patrons. Generally speaking, anything you see on Patreon is paid for exclusively by your patronage.

UPGRADE: Sound!

My mic is fine but it's not the real deal professional audio equipment an operation like this deserves. When we reach this goal I can invest in a better microphone and sound-proofing!
