About Lo

HEY EVERYONE!
Please note that I am no longer updating my Patreon page. 

I will not be deleting my profile because this is still the preferred way for some folks to support me, but instead I am now uploading content to...

Thank you for supporting me!

Why am I doing this? Frankly, Patreon kind of sucks now, and has sucked since it sold out to the venture capitalists. I still remember the personalized recruitment email I got from them when they were trying to figure out how to lure comic artists onto the platform. I remember explaining that we would need something like a monthly or weekly subscription, rather than just a per-creation method of payment collection. (The option soon appeared after that.)

But then the cuts and fees started taking bigger and bigger chunks out of my wee monthly payout. They never implemented any real way to make smaller creators visible to the audiences of larger creators (because they couldn't give a rat's ass about small creators). Then they started fucking around with other creator-side things in the face of extremely vocal dissent, like the content rights debacle, to give but one example. In the wake of scandal after scandal, Jack Conte seems to take the Zuckerburg option, which is to completely fail to understand that he has people's livelihoods in the palm of his hand. He would rather kow-tow to the whims of VCs like the fucking Kushners, while patronizingly (patreonizingly?) talk about why we're all wrong and daddy Conte actually has our best interests at heart.

Anyways, there's all kinds of write-ups about the problems with the platform, they're easy to find if you search. And yes, I still support a few people here, because I value their work and this is the only place to get their subscriber-only content. I don't resent them that. However, I'll resent me if I continue to help the platform by continuing to encourage its use.
