My name is Maurice. I'm going to make this weird.

Making things weird is what A Strange Signal is all about. I take pictures, then make them weird. For you.

What do these signals entail? Canine orders holding secrets. Lycanthropes in farmhouses. The world beyond our grasp - barely visible, but right next to us.

So, don’t trust doors. Dread the waves of the ocean. Always take the stairs. And whatever you do, don't make deals with magicians.

Magicians will only break your heart. Or other things that you can’t get back.

Some people might say that a dollar isn't any support at all. Me, I will sing your praises. $1 will let me buy four bottles of no-frills water from a vending machine near me. Singing your praises is thirsty work, after all.

Oh! And you get to join our Discord channel too! You can come by, chat about your favorite dog, the best pizza joints, or the dark conspiracies at play in the world of A Strange Signal.

You want to come into the weird world of canine conspiracy, malign ocean depths, and hear the strange messages from another world. Can't say I blame you. Plus, there's postcards! Your donation gets you a pack of five randomly assorted postcard prints, once per year.

You've figured out some secrets - and one of them is PayPal! We won't talk about the other secrets here. They're too unsettling. But, what we will talk about is making your own life a little weirder. For your donation, you’ll have a full year to send me three of your own pictures (image requirements at http://www.astrangesignal.com/commissions) to my email address, and make them weird to your specifications. But, not too weird. I want to be friends with you when this is over. This will get you an 8x10, a postcard, and digital copy of each of your life slivers made weird. You could print more on your own, but... where's the secrecy in that?


Oh, and I’ll be happy to do this for you once a year! You’re welcome!

Who sent you here? Are you a good boy? Well, I suppose it doesn't matter. Someone sent you here with the intention of lording it over us humans - which you are totally entitled to do, Oh Furred One! Send me a picture of your dog - no humans allowed in frame please - and it will become one of the pooches that pass out prophecy like panting professors in an upcoming signal of indeterminate date. Dogs like alliteration. And secrets. Maybe a Snausage, too.

Oh, and you also get an 8x10, a postcard, and a hi-res digital copy of your dog’s very own signal! And (hopefully) some canine gratitude. Hard work being adorable. And feared.


This is a one-time only deal insofar as getting onto the site’s narrative, but send me a dog pic a year. I love our canine overlords! And I love making them even more sinist... uh, loveable. Yeah. Loveable.


Oh, and here’s the guidelines againfor the images you‘ll be sending: http://www.astrangesignal.com/commissions/

The random messages emanating from the signal aren't enough? Well, we can have ourselves a cozy chat then. Feel free to ask some of the broadcasters of the signals some questions. Nothing too pointed mind you - secrets and all - and perhaps Eli, the Hunters, a random cultist, or the Archmage might let some secrets slip. Prepare yourself for personal weirdness all for you in A Strange Signal format - a series of dialogs between you and them with all the esoterica I can squeeze into them. All you have to do is send me a photo and your questions (you get three questions tops). Oh, and just because the character responds doesn't mean you should take anything they say as ‘advice’. These people are disturbed and have problems other people don't have.

Artist Warning: Seriously, don't follow any advice they give. This is fiction folks. Plus, necromancy doesn't really work. If it did, everyone'd be doing it.

Paying My Adobe CC Bill: You like me. Well, you like my work at least (I hope you like me, too). If I can hit $50 per month, you're paying for critical baseline art needs. While digital art doesn't take the raw resources traditional art does, it does require a monthly subscription to Adobe's Creative Cloud, which is responsible for bringing you the weird ramblings you love so much. So, please. Please help me pay this month-by-month bill.
