I've been drawing comics for a long time now, and my current offerings, like Felicia, Sorceress Of Katara and Mr Cow are being done as weekly webcomics which I intend to collect in book form as they reach either their end or an appropriate number of pages to make a collection.  But it takes time to produce and it's difficult to find that time when you have to attend to the day job.  I have to keep pausing my strips from time to time until I can draw enough of a backload to allow the strips to run uninterrupted for a good, long spell.  Frankly, I'd like to be able to spend my day drawing and writing, and that's what I'm hoping you can all help me to accomplish: support my work with a dollar or two each month to help keep the stories and art flowing.

I'm running three strips currently, the two aforementioned and a third, The Champion Of Katara: two humor/adventure series and a gag strip.  I've been running them for free for a few years now, and I'm ready to take them all further -- with your help.

You're a generous soul, so not only will you be remembered as a sponsor and get a free Felicia comic the next time an issue is printed, but I'll also send you a Felicia cloisonne pin.  (Note: I have quite a few of these, but there is, obviously, a finite number, so when they're gone, they're gone.  When that happens I'll announce it and either remove or replace this reward.)

You're really generous, so you deserve a little extra.  Not only do you get notice of your sponsorship on a list, a free comic (when published) and a cloisonne pin (while they last), but you also get a free copy of The Vixen Sorceress -- a collection of Felicia prose stories in a single 290 page soft-covered book.  (Yes, I write too.)  It includes "The Tailcutter's Curse", which won the 2004 Ursa Major Award for Best Short Story.  It's got pictures, too.

This is the Adult Level -- you get everything that the $100 level gets (the pin, the comic, the book, the sponsorship mention), plus access to any Adult material I post here.  And there shall be some from time to time; some pin-ups, some comics.  If you're not here, you'll miss them.

You are generous beyond belief, so you get the whole shebang: the sponsorship recognition, a free comic, a cloisonne pin, a copy of The Vixen Sorceress... and... if you want it (you could always decline, but you came this far so I don't know why you would), an original pen and ink drawing of Felicia (or any other of my characters that you may prefer) done especially for you.  Because you deserve it.
Goals
$96 of $5,000 per month
Reaching this goal is nothing less than a miracle, and I will thank you all profusely.  This will mean a computer upgrade, maybe even to a Cintiq, and I will labor to make Mr Cow a daily strip, and push the story strips up to at least three days a week!
