Greetings, fiends! 
My name is Kristopher McClanahan and I am an artist, author, podcaster, game designer, soapboiler and con man living in the Northwest. With my wife and friends, I have spent years bringing folks the finest artwork, geeky soaps and experiences I can and as you can see, we have a lot of projects in the fire at any given time!

Lets break down those things we are creating above and how supporting us here on Patreon will give you a peek into our world, shall we? 

Artwork:  I am a full time freelance artist, selling at conventions across the united states (20-30 a year) I also do art for books like THE THING ARTBOOK and covers on Quad M Comics' ENIGMA. I am also working on a number of new projects, including a webcomic and constant new pieces of fan art! Here on Patreon, patrons will have a chance to see works in progress, prelim sketches, timelapse videos and even vote on what art I do next! 

Books: My wife and I are both authors. I have released two novels: A children's ghost adventure called WHISPERING FERNS and a noir postapocalyptic novel called MR PALE STEPS OUT. Lindsay is also designing a new series of fantasy novels. We hope to use Patreon for sneak peeks at chapters and exclusive short stories as we develop our next books! 

Tabletop Games and RPGs: This is a new world for Deeply Dapper and in the next couple of years, starting in April with our first one, we will be designing and releasing a lot of games and game-related content! First on deck is CREATURE FEATURES - a fast and feisty card game about building monsters and STREETLIGHTS AND SHADOWS, a noir themed RPG set in the 1940's. Here on Patreon, you'll get sneak previews of EVERY aspect of designing a game - sketches, playtests, sneak peeks at upcoming designs and even Print and Play files before anyone else! We are also designing a game room here at the DD headquarters where we can stream games, review new ones and offer peeks into our process of designing board games and making tabletop terrain! 

Podcasts: Whenever I can, I get together with my buddies to create podcasts as well! We have two active right now with a third, more personal one being recorded as well!
The 3D Podcasket - A Semi-Weekly Horror and Geek show featuring myself and my buddy Devon and my brother Ben. Join us there as we review Horror movies, toys, weird news, video games, and dissect obscure video oddities, independent films and more!
Then, over on our monthly show, Robot Kraken, Thom Chiaramonte and I dive headlong into geek topics, art techniques, comic creation and nerdy film and TV properties!
Next on deck is The Long Con, which will be a regular show covering just how a life of an artist on the road works - I'll be posting updates, reviews, thoughts and interviews. 

Videos: Another new thing for us, we would like to start posting more video content here and on YouTube, including timelapses, build How-Tos and interviews! Lindsay and I are both hobbyists that love to sculpt, draw, paint and craft and we plan to use this for more of that! However, editing video is a lot of work, so supporting us here will be a huge help in justifying these new videos and like a lot of the other stuff here, you'll see it here first! 

Alchemy: In addition to the shows, books and art, I also attend comic, gaming and horror conventions across the country, often appearing with Lindsay, Thom and Devon, where I am known as "The Soap Guy." We make and design a series of 75+ different soaps, wax melters and candles and patrons here will get a behind the scenes peek at the process and a chance to get exclusive Test Batch creations!

All of this a ton of fun, but it's also a LOT of work. So here it is - Our Patreon! Naturally, our final edits of Episodes of The 3D Podcasket and Robot Kraken will always be FREE and everything else will eventually be available online or at shows! However, there's usually tons of extra content that doesn't make it elsewhere - Thom making dying robot sounds, my dogs attacking me, Devon ranting about something really esoteric and some of the content like Robot Kraken's reviews take weeks before appearing on the show. Having patrons would allow us to post that bonus content here, in it's entirety as soon as it's recorded, or possibly even LIVE! I'm a full time author and artist and I travel a lot, so every dollar you can support us with goes towards more content, on the road surprises, interviews and making sure I can afford to pay my power and internet bills! (I am an independent artist, after all.) We could also stream some special events like us on the convention floors, interacting with celebs and stuff like game night! 

We will also be doing regular polls here on the Patreon page for patrons to choose our next reviews, topics, art subjects and more! Make us watch a terrible video nasty from the 70's or your favorite under-appreciated scifi flick! We want this to be a hub for interactions! We will also give every patron a secret phrase that will get you a free gift at our convention appearances! 

A NOTE ON PLEDGE LEVELS:
After a lot of thought, we've decided that almost all of our content will be available to ALL of our patrons, no matter the backing level! If you support us for more, we want it to be because you're extra awesome and want to support our stuff, but we also want the $1 backer to be able to see all of the same cool stuff.

The Exception: Our $100 level: anyone that backs us at that level will get to choose one movie, game or video game for us to review. You can control the horizontal and the vertical. And that's each month! If you want to back at the ten dollar level for 11 months and the $100 for one month to have us watch a certain movie - awesome - you don't have to back at that level for more than the one time to get in our brains like a creeping space slug! 

Thank you so much for supporting us and we hope you enjoy
BETTER LIVING THROUGH TENTACLES!
