The call of Adventure!  Growing up, it was Indiana Jones, Luke Skywalker and Horatio Hornblower who sparked my imagination (making me think : "Yes, I CAN jump from this tree to that one..." by the way, no.... No, I can't).  At the same time, comic books like Tintin and the Flash, great animated films from Disney, Dreamworks and Don Bluth came into my life and cemented a love of visual art and I knew I had to spend my life using it to tell stories of smarmy swashbucklers in exotic lands.  With your support I will tell stories of new adventurers through the mediums of web comics and illustrated books, doing my part to keep old school high adventure alive.  Funding will help to buy supplies and allow me to dedicate more time to research, writing, and drawing to create the best stories and art possible.  Also, in the case of my comic pages, funding will help to pay my colorist for her wonderful help.  And eventually, as chapters are completed, it will allow me to release hard trade copies of the stories to be sold online and at comic book conventions.

Goals
$27 of $1,500 per month
Wow, this would be great!  Remember the goal to get to more conventions?  If I can reach this goal I would be able to get to conventions all over the country!  I wold use the money as well to invest in some video equipment so I can speak to you all more personally, do higher quality drawing and inking demos, and quite simply, be able spend more time away from the day job and invest it back into making more and more content for everyone here.
