I’m the creator of Psychiatric Tales, Science Tales (aka How To Fake A Moon Landing), Uncle Bob Adventures, and Supercrash (aka The Age Of Selfishness). Most of my books are non-fiction breakdowns of subjects as diverse as mental health, science, and economics. 

Why do I need a Patreon when I’m a published author, I hear you ask? Surely the internationally renown cartoonist Darryl Cunningham must be rolling in money? Er…no. Far from it. I am published in a few countries, but I’m not a best seller. My books sell a respectable amount - enough to make publishers happy, but not enough to generate a living for me. Because an author only gets a tiny amount from each book sold, you really have to sell in the tens of thousands, or even better, hundreds of thousands in order to make a living from cartooning alone, and I’m far from that. The trickle of money I get from the books, even if I add the money from the various foreign editions together, still doesn’t come anywhere near the amount I need to make a living. That is the brutal truth. 

So this Patreon site will help me financially. If you like my work and would like to see me do more, then please consider being a patron.
