WHO AM I?

My name is Lee Lightfoot. I draw and write comics for Black Ship Books, which I set up with the writer, editor and journalist Evan Henry:

Black Ship Books

HOW DOES PATREON WORK?

Patreon is a membership site. I create things you are interested in and you subscribe for a monthly amount...so I create more of those things...and you receive rewards for doing so.

WHAT DO YOU GET FOR JOINING?

I'm inviting you to join the Black Ship crew! What is your reward for subscribing? Help run and build a comics imprint with a growing collective of creators and receive art from those comics or even art for your own? Decide on the big creative decisions and contribute to polls on the best creative directions to move in. Help us all to move through the goals so that we can eventually distribute multiple artists' creative visions through Diamond to comic stores and bookshops worldwide. Take a look at the other reward levels, from Basic to Vibranium, for a full list of rewards.

If you become a patron you also become a part of the Black Ship community. You are part of that exclusive community of readers, writers, artists and comics fans who help to build the Black Ship narrative world. Personally, I am also aiming with this campaign to enable myself and others to become better writers and artists. 

WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES?

If the campaign is a success up to the level of the stretch goals then that will mean paid work for other creators...creators you yourselves as patrons might suggest to me along the way...or that creator might in fact be you!

COMMON QUESTIONS

Can I really sign up now for the 10 or 20 dollar level and immediately get 100 or 200 dollars in savings by buying 10 pieces of art...right now? Yes, definitely, though I might have to change this reward later if I feel I am going broke over it!

Do I have to pay in US dollars? No, you can use any currency.

How often can I claim my reward? The rewards shown are intended as once a month but the art discounts can be claimed at any time.

What if I have very little money? That's fine, I really appreciate one dollar a month if that's the level of support you are comfortable with.

Can I stop or change my donation level? Yes, at any time you can log in and change or end your support.
