Hey everyone!

My name is David Michael Chandler, and I create original hand drawn animated illustrations with corresponding stories on my Tumblr, "The Daily Doodles" (thedailydoodles.com). 

I began my site with simply a ballpoint pen, 3 almost-dry highlighters, no formal training in art or illustration, and absolutely zero clue as to how it would all develop and take hold.  And now after 4 years,  I have 200 thousand followers of my site as my work has gone from quick embarrassingly-bad scribbles to fully animated original drawings and stories.

Because of how my work has advanced, I have long outgrown my equipment and the time required to make what I make has become more precious than ever.  This is why I need your help.

With your support, I will be getting better equipment (a computer made for visual arts, for example, plus the required programs to create what I create), and I will have more time to make more drawings and stories-- specifically, I'll be able to work on more ambitious projects such as 3 minute short cartoons (not just GIFs, but actual cartoons), illustrated books, music videos, and other visual work that is building off what I have established on The Daily Doodles.  And I'll be able to get groceries! :-)

Everything I draw and colour is done by hand with coloured pencils, and while it's a time consuming process,  I believe it gives my work a unique look that helps it stand out. 

All of the monthly donations I receive from you will go into creating more unique and original content and growing as an artist.  Everyone who has enjoyed my site over the years has helped change my life, as I now have a future and career I never would have imagined otherwise.

I can't thank you enough for your time and love; it means the world to me.

With this donation you'll receive my first ever sticker pack collection 4 times a year!  

Each pack will have 10 original stickers mailed out to you (so if ya want the stickers I'll need a mailing address of course), with the stickers comprising of random drawings such as creatures, perhaps abstract art, robots, ghosts, or even sticker versions of existing Daily Doodles.

You'll receive 40 total stickers over the course of the year!

With the medium range donation, you will be linked under one of my GIF/stories on The Daily Doodles as the "sponsor" or patron of that post.  You won't be drawn into the story like the $10 patrons would be, and you won't get to choose the story, but I won't attach you to any story or drawing you may find objectionable (I will clear it with you ahead of time).

Each GIF and story I create will be reblogged by myself many times, and thousands of times by my readers, so it's decent advertising for you and a fun way to support my work.  

You will also receive the $1 sticker pack, of course!

You'll star in your own original animated GIF!  It's a popular feature I have where I will draw you into one of my GIFs and write a story (created especially for you) of your choosing.  Details can be found here: http://www.thedailydoodles.com/post/6368411095/wou...

The short version of how it works-- For a $10/a month or one time payment $100, I will send you a list of various original story and image ideas that you will choose from (tailored towards your specific interests and taste; for example if you wish to star in a sci fi drawing, I will steer it in that direction).  Once ya pick which idea to star in, I get to work creating the animation for you.  :-)

Not only do you get your own original animation that I post on my site, I will send you a high quality HD video file that you can frame in a digital frame (hang it on your wall, or put it on your desk!  Most digital frames can run video, it'll be like your own Harry Potter living photograph), I will advertise your site or whatever you like to my 200k followers at the bottom of the story (and I reblog each GIF many times through the year, so you'll get continued advertisement), you'll receive a sticker pack that the $1 patrons receive, plus the original drawings themselves (keep in mind that for most animations, the drawings are in separate pieces).

Creating unique and original animations for readers of my site has been some of my best and most rewarding work, and I hope you'll take part in the fun!

Goals
$7 of $1,000 per month
As my work has outgrown my current equipment (and my work laptop has died), I am hoping that your monthly donation enables me to purchase a computer that can handle video editing and visual arts. Once this is accomplished, I can post more often, work on original cartoons, and work on various other related projects.
