ICECUBES
is a scratchy little comic strip done the traditional way on real paper with India ink using metal nibs and sable brushes. Even the lettering is hand drawn. I draw this way because I like the immediacy and livelyness the pen nibs give me.



What I try to do with ICECUBES is explore the limits of the medium and let it take me where it wants to. Sometimes the strip kind of wanders off, sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's not.



The strip is about 4 characters, a polar bear named Peckinpaw, a penguin named Freeze, a walrus named Eggman and an eskimo named Nooky. They goof around and try to get along with each other in their frozen arctic wonderland. They've become my friends over time, although I get along  with some better than with others. I just let them do their thing on the page, whatever that might be.

ICECUBES is fun to do but it does take time and costs money. I want to make each strip as good as possible, so I am hoping this Patreon account can raise enough funds for me to continue doing ICECUBES on a regular basis. I have calculated that ICECUBES costs me about $70 per month to maintain (hosting, domain names, art supplies, etc). That amounts to $840 a year, or about $16 per weekly strip, even without paying myself. Also, please keep in mind that Patreon, credit card companies and Paypal charge me about 10% of what you pledge.

The way Patreon works is like a subscription. You decide the amount you want to subscribe for on a monthly basis and you will get special bonus rewards reserved exclusively for subscribers. You can cancel at any time of course!

With this patreon I would also like to be able to share more behind the scenes stuff and even put together more videos and animated strips. So, if you like ICECUBES and want to see the strip carry on, consider becoming a patron. I'll be sure to make the rewards fun and worth your while.

Thanks so much for reading ICECUBES. Have a great day and kiss your Mom, your Dad and your kids!
