I'm Toasty and I make art--specifically, illustrations, animation, and comics!  If you'd like to support those here, you'll get all that and more!
What's this about comics?

Glad you asked!

I'm currently posting my webcomic War in the Shade for free on Tumblr and the War in the Shade website--but patrons will see updates ten pages ahead of the public crowd, as well as videos of me freehanding those pages, bonus sketches, and other good stuff!
Other concepts are also in the works--some closer to being realized than others.
Snow in Summer is about a young man named Safra confronting past trauma and inhibitions through the medium of traditional dance.
Citygods is the story of a deity named Cheer, born from the mass fear accompanying a tragic fire, trying to find his place in the local pantheon.
Josiah Diamond and the Bullet is a story about a pansexual part-werewolf guy whose past catches up with him in the form of six honorable duels!  Expect at least one page per month.
Quite apart from those projects, I'll also share any other pieces I start, even the ones you won't see on my Tumblr!  Story ideas!  Animation!  Other short comics!  Development art for other stories!  Wallpapers!  WIPs!  Help me become a little more self-sufficient doing what I love!

Important Note:  The majority of the $1 and $5 art should go up in the latter half of the month!  Don't despair because you haven't seen much for the first few weeks, it'll still tally up to the standard 8-10 pieces in the end.
Tiers
Chill Tier
$1 or more per month

For the cool cats who want:

  • Stand-alone sketches and animation WIPs (u want emotional lipsync practice to a sad song? we got that)
  • Stand-alone writing (u want radio drama scripts about a grumpy nb doctor and their cheerful nb roommate treating magical criminals? we got that)
  • Art for stories in development, such as Citygods, Snow in Summer, and more!
  • 5-10 posts per month


Warm Tier
$5 or more per month

Heat your feet in the desert!  In addition to all that stuff the $1 people get, I will also throw this stuff at you:

  • Art for my stories in progress (War in the Shade, Josiah Diamond and the Bullet)
  • WIPs and previews of comic pages
  • Full .pdfs of any short comics I make
  • In all: 5-10 posts per month
Toasty Tier
$10 or more per month

We're cooking with comics now!  Everything from the previous two tiers, plus:

  • Early updates of War in the Shade's 5-page updates (a week before they go up publicly!)
  • One or more pages of JDatB per month
  • 2 speedpaints or timelapses per month 
Grilled Tier
$20 or more per month
Send me up to ten comic pages and I'll offer thoughtful, kind critique on your art/composition/dialogue!  What do I like?  What could be better?  Most importantly, what kind of story do you want to tell and how can I help you do that?

Contrary to the tier title, my feedback will not be at all searing or scorching.  I love comics and I'm fully ready to love yours!  Just no nsfw content, please!

Goals
7% complete
If I ever hit this in the far distant future, I'll be able to support myself independently!  No more full-time job.  That would mean weekly WitS updates (or an accelerated schedule for whatever I'm working on at that point) plus requests or commissions.
