    Hello!
    I'm Lise. Maybe you know me, maybe you don't. Whatever the case, I'm glad you're here!
    I've been on Patreon for a little while, and while I find it very uncomfortable to share praise, I feel like I should to show you what some of my existing pledgers think:

    "It's genuinely such a joy to come home from a long day at work to find @LiseRichardson has sent you your Patreon gifts for the month "
    - Olivia Phipps

    "Gosh, I do love @LiseRichardson's patreon things. I mean like, really love. In a proper 'oh I seem to have glitter on my lips for all the kissing I've been doing' love."
    Matt Smith

    "Yay! My patreon goodies arrived today, thank you! It’s been a long and tiring week so this was a perfect pick-me-up!"
    Cat McGahey

    So what exactly is this Patreon thing all about? Well, it's a bit like a club for people who are really into:

    a. illustration (preferably mine)
    b. comedy (largely live, heavily alternative)
    c. niche and nice things (various)

    You probably know me best for making posters for comedians, or making reportage illustrations of nice comedy festivals - that's a large part of what you can expect to see here on my blog and in your treats. It's not always comedy, of course. Sometimes I'll subject you to a month of folk horror illustrations or bleak comics about Santa Claus because that's what reasonable and generous people do (you can quote me on this). It's always relatively fun, for the most part.
    My Patreon blog has lots of content ready for you to access straight away, including lots of posters and illustrations (some that I've not shared anywhere else!), work in progress and process videos, fun comedy chat and very occasionally slightly heavier topics (it's all related to my work, and very much part of the process). Also, while The Independent Comedy Appreciation Society magazine is winding down for a bit, I'm going to put any articles (fully illustrated of course) Pete or I produce in the meantime here on the blog solely for you, dear Patreon pals. Nifty.

    Your money makes it possible for me to produce all this online content, print zines, books, art and cards, without having to worry about it being commercially viable. That means the world to me - it's a very odd little niche I work in and it's unlikely to ever appeal to a mass audience, so by pledging you're giving me some much needed security to keep producing things. It's also a bit like buying my friendship, which I'm sure we can all agree isn't incredibly strange and unsettling (it isn't - all my Patreon pals are charming and delightful, and I'm very grateful to be supported by such kind and fun people.)

Tiers
Blog buddy
$1 or more per month

About 70p a month. You get access to all the exclusive content on my Patreon blog, including new illustrations and posters before anyone else, videos of my process and work in progress snaps, and plenty of relatively fun (or intense, but mainly fun) chat.

$5 or more per month

Roughly £3 a month. You’ll get a small treat and a card with a letter from me posted to your door every month. This includes access to the blog. 

Premium Post Pal
$10 or more per month

That’s about £7.50. You’ll get a second, often larger treat in addition to the small standard treat posted to you monthly. This includes access to the blog.

Goals
$89 of $130 per month
That's about £100. I mean this would be really nifty per month, I'd be able to justify small print runs of #IndieComedyMag and be able to give writers something back for their time and effort that isn't solely goodwill.
