Hey! I’m Lawrence, the guy behind everything you see on More To That.

What started as a “just-for-fun” project has become somewhat of an obsession, as More To That has given me good reason to approach topics with an abnormal level of curiosity and depth.

The Patreon video above is a good example of this. I really, really didn’t have to spend weeks cutting paper, gluing things, and taking thousands of photos to create two minutes of stop motion animation for this (trust me, I asked myself many times why the hell I was doing it) - but in the end, I’m really glad I did! My theory is that all things worth doing require significant time and effort, and this very sentiment drives the content I create for More To That.

As chivalrous as this sounds, it does come with its pain points. The blog posts I work on generally take a really long time for me to complete (each one takes me weeks of consistent work to do). This may change in the future, but at the moment, I enjoy this level of depth I can go into with each post, as it pushes me to create high-quality material for you guys.

Here's the thing though. While More To That takes a lot of work, it’s not really doing much for me financially, so I make a living working a corporate job when the sun is up, and work on the blog primarily during the evenings and weekends. What this means is that the frequency of posts is much lower than I’d like it to be, as working on More To That is something that I have to do on the side.

Well, this is where this Patreon page comes in! The way it works is quite simple - if you like what I’m doing, you can donate a recurring amount of money each month to help More To That become a financially viable thing. Supporting the blog in this way will give me the opportunity to spend less time building spreadsheets, and more time creating cool content for you guys.

As a way to thank you for your generosity, I've included some rewards you can receive based on your level of support. Some of these include:

-Offline versions of new posts (PDFs)
-A full-length, 50-page post that will only be made available on Patreon
-Wallpapers for your phone, tablet, or computer
-Handmade characters delivered to your doorstep
-And more!

You can read the details in the rewards section of the page, and feel free to send me an email at [email protected] if you have any questions.

Thanks for checking out this Patreon page, and thank you so much for your support! Working on More To That has been such an awesome experience for me, and it really wouldn’t be possible without amazing readers like you.

You Just Blew My Mind With Warm Thoughts


This level of support is quite unexpected, so it’s hard for me to even think of what will suffice here. Okay, I think I may have something.


I will hop on a Skype call with you to learn more about your personal interests, your hobbies, your quirks - essentially, a lil’ bit of what makes you “you.” Then I will take in that information and draw a More To That version of you, and your character will be included somewhere on a More To That post.


Or if that doesn’t work, I’ll just hop on a Skype call and thank you profusely until it gets really annoying. Whichever one you prefer!
