If you are here, that means you like something I did. [Right now, in the run-up to launching my webcomic Sojourners, it probably means you listen to the Storycraft podcast (on iTunes, Stitcher, iHeartRadio) or know me and what I am up to personally.] However you found this page, it means a lot to me that you are here, and I'm excited to have many ways to show you that as you continue.

Throughout the next few months, I am building a graphic novel with writer Jason McNamara (Storycraft episode 8), while also squeezing in trips to Anaheim for Wondercon, San Francisco for a super secret live event (hint!), San Diego for Comic-Con (at which I'll be tabling solo for the first time, Artist's Alley FF7), and somewhere in there, back to San Francisco to do a live Podcast as part of the GRAND OPENING events at the new Cartoon Art Museum location near Ghiradelli Square (date TBA). Also, I will naturally be doing regular upkeep on monkeygong.com, which will soon be a much more interactive experience with the arrival of Sojourners, new blog features, a monthly print program, and more regular new merch.

All-in-all, I am dead-set on being my own boss in order to produce an interesting body of work. All of which will be focused largely on science fiction, social commentary, fostering a sense of wonder, communicating positive ideas, (while still making the occasional political statement), and naturally, creating a ton of amazing, beautiful images in pen & ink and color.

Patreon offers me a unique chance to encapsulate what I'm doing with monkeygong.com and combine it with kickstarter style rewards and greater social outreach. It also offers a chance to crystalize my overarching goals that aren't always clear with one podcast or one glimpse at some art.

Furthermore, as I type this it strikes me that the Patreon platform is one the few completely positive avenues for social media interaction. So, in our own small way, we are quite literally advancing society right now. That makes my brain suddenly tingle with extra future-y thoughts. Which is often the case, and in a roundabout way, why this interaction is happening.

That is appropriate, since my art, the Storycraft podcast and monkeygong.com, all aim to engage in a productive, inspiring discussion about the future and the now, through art, story and social observation. The site and podcast are gateways to that, and here in front of you is gateway to those.

Please enter with my gratitude and respect.

As I continue to grow the Storycraft Podcast, I hope to take it on the road for live shows. To gather many of the episodes you've already heard, I have taken many road trips to meet with fellow creators, and will continue to do so.

With your help, if I can raise a regular minimum travel budget, it will enable me to take extra trips, and help produce upcoming live events that I am excited to share very soon!
