Milestone Goals
Shiny new website!
$50 per month
I am no web monkey. I can make posts, make content, but I can't figure out how to build a web page. The plan is to develop a page where I can not only share my own work, but  also build a collective of artists who will have their own galleries and have an interactive element where people can have real conversations. Plus we have to make sure that this shiny new website is available for mobile phones so it will do better when people search for us on Google.
Studio Space
$500 per month
This is more than just a space for me. Allowing me to afford to rent studio space in the Pioneer Valley where I can have events at almost every Artwalk. We can invite musicians every month, too, and have a party! This would also allow me a place to make art as well as a place for you. 
The BIG Patreon Creator Pledge
$1,777 per month
Basic income achieved! I am now free to focus entirely on achieving the same for all of us, which I will do vigorously. Because I consider $1,600 per month an appropriate starting level for a basic income as a father of two in the US (in 2014) - but will need 10% to cover Patreon's cut and transaction fees ($1,777 - 10% = $1,600) an amount of $1,777 is my final goal and all pledges above it I will not keep and will instead pledge to others, namely an editor, who will set the same goal of achieving their own basic incomes set at the same level here on Patreon. If you're familiar with Creative Commons, this goal essentially has a "Share Alike" stipulation.
The BIG Patreon Creator Pledge for my editor
$2,888 per month
Basic income achieved! I am now free to focus entirely on achieving the same for all of us, which I will do vigorously. Because I consider $1,600 per month an appropriate starting level for a basic income as a father of two and $1,000 basic income for my editor in the US (in 2014) - but will need 10% to cover Patreon's cut and transaction fees ($2,888 - 10% = $2,600) an amount of $2,888 is my final goal and all pledges above it I will not keep and will instead pledge to others who will set the same goal of achieving their own basic incomes set at the same level here on Patreon. If you're familiar with Creative Commons, this goal essentially has a "Share Alike" stipulation.

About

J. Andrew World is the writer and illustrator of the progressive political webcomics Right About Now and Word Salad. He also designs eye-catching graphics highlighting inspirational, thought provoking, and sometimes controversial quotes. He is committed to using his talents for raising awareness of community challenges and for encouraging open and respectful debate. Although he has lived everywhere from Texas to Turkey in his lifetime, he has long been drawn to and loved the Pioneer Valley and is very glad that he is able to call it home once again. When not creating art or writing, J. Andrew does his best to remember to spend time with his wife, their very silly daughters, and their cats.

Hello, I'm J. Andrew World. I make pictures. I make lots of pictures and post them online. Not only do I make lots of pictures and post them online, but I do it for free.

I do it for you.

I try to write and post posters that you would actually want. I have lots of ideas of where to go with it, but it's hard making free images and freelancing at the same time. Some months are easier than others. This is where you come in.

What is Patreon?

Patreon is a way to get paid for creating the things I'm already creating. Fans pledge a few bucks per month.

With your support, I can continue to share my art, my ideas, and my comics with the world. But I can't do it alone. I need your help. Even signing on at the $1/month patron level would make a difference if enough of you do it. There are rewards for you, my loyal followers, at all levels of patronage. The more you pledge, the cooler the rewards. Also, I hope to have some events and meet some of you in person.

Where can I find your work?

My Posters can be seen on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Daily Kos and Google Plus to make it easier for you to share. Please follow me and help change the world for the better by sharing one picture at a time.

So even if you can just support at the basic level and share my work on your social media, that can help tremendously. Also, you can donate a Tweet and/or a Facebook so you can share my art among your friends. You can donate it daily, weekly, and monthly.

"The BIG Patreon Creator Pledge"

I am taking Scott Santens' "BIG Patreon Creator Pledge." If I reach $1777, I will play it forward. That would also allow me to start paying an editor who will join Patreon and they will take the pledge, too.
What's the Big Patreon Creator Pledge? I'm glad you asked:

"Taking a page from the Creative Commons concept of Share Alike, any and every patron dollar pledged above $1,111 per month I will consider to be greater than a basic income and will pledge away to other creators here on Patreon also creating content in support of their own basic incomes by making the same pledge to limit their own final goals to $1,111/mo (plus $333/mo per kid for Creator parents) and pledging to give the rest to others making the same pledge. My goal here is to create a community of content creators all working toward their own basic incomes with the same shared goal of achieving basic incomes for others."

Why $1777? I have two children, so it is $1111+$333+$333=$1777. Once we do that, I will play it forward to my editor.

Thank you.
