Octopus Pie is a webcomic that, since 2007, has been supported by a dedicated, enthusiastic readership. The life of a freelancer, however, is not consistent pay-wise. Often I need to prioritize freelance work, mail-order sales, and convention travel over making comics.

If you become a patron, you will give me the breathing room I need to focus on the comic. I will be able to upgrade my ancient hardware and run my home office more efficiently. And I will be able to pay for health insurance, which... if you're an American, you know how this is.

If you become a Patron at a $2 level or higher, you will have access to postings from my sketchbook, process drawings of the comic, and a first look at pretty much everything I do. Octopus Pie, of course, will always be free to read - but your support means I can make it as good and as frequent as possible!

JULY 2014 UPDATE: Patrons, I've decided to shift the next goal to be a FULL-COLOR comic! After drawing 10 pages per month for a few months, this feels like a very good pace for me. So instead of scrambling to draw more pages, I'd like to improve the pages I'm already making, with your help!

The plan is to hire a colorist to make these pages. The samples in the video and on the "Creations" page are colored by Sloane Leong. She does fantastic work, and I would love to have her working on the series. You can see more of her work on her website:
