With all the intricacies of making a comic strip and getting it online it's easy to forget that first and foremost we're artists.
A pledge at the first tier of a buck a month is vital to keeping this comic going day to day. Pepperpot Piper needs hours of research every month and your one dollar pledge helps pay for transportation and admission to museums, car and air shows.
And if you’d like to kick in a little more to help keep Pepperpot Piper going strong check out the higher pledge levels and PepperPerks!

Pledge ONE DOLLAR A MONTH and three times a year you’ll get to enjoy The Pepperpot Papers, exclusive Pepperpot Piper art and backstories available only to Pep’s Patreon patrons.
You may wonder, “How can one buck a month make any real difference?”
Well, two patrons - just two - pledging one dollar a month for one year donate enough to buy yours truly a top-quality bright or chisel-tip paintbrush. Four patrons pledging one dollar a month for one year provide this comic strip’s paint box with one 200ml tube of fine old Winsor & Newton oil paint. And just think... a mere seven hundred and fifty thousand patrons pledging one dollar a month for one year would comfortably land Pepperpot in a swank studio on the Balearic island of Ibiza for life! The mind boggles.

Hold onto your hats! Along with access to The Pepperpot Papers, a patronage of $120 a year gets your likeness included in the jazz age backdrop of this comic. At the earliest logical opportunity and in the order in which the Patreon pledge is received, for as long as Pepperpot Piper remains on the Internet your face will be seen on a background billboard, or on a matchbook cover, or a storefront sign, or a wanted poster, a playbill, a burlesque theater fire curtain, or even a pulp magazine over at Newsie’s newsstand!
“What good will one ten-spot a month do Pepperpot Piper?” you ask.
Well, this comic strip may start off as Sharpie scrawls on bar napkins, but for the world to read it all those panels have to end up as cutting-edge pieces of space-age digital art made out of colorful pixels and photons and such. For this to keep on happening Pepperpot Piper needs at least five patrons pledging ten dollars a month to cover Adobe’s compulsory subscription plan for one year and keep Miss Piper in Photoshop and Illustrator and InDesign and the like.
If you choose to take advantage of this reward it will of course require a timely exchange of photographs between the author and yourself, and some time waiting in the queue.
When you pledge write to me right away and let's get started!
A WALK-ON
$20 or more per month 0 patrons
Along with access to The Pepperpot Papers that $240 a year gets you a mind-blowing bonus: the opportunity to be a bit player on the most action-packed stage in webcomics! Pledge twenty dollars a month and your likeness in period garb will be included in this comic.
That’s right, you, for real, as a face in the crowd, or dealing flapjacks off the arm, or maybe even letting fly with a police special at some supervillain with the rest of the SFPD! 
Of course, should you choose to take advantage of this reward it will require an exchange of photographs between the author and yourself and some wait time in the queue.

A SPEAKING PART
$40 or more per month 1 patron
A patronage of $480 a year not only procures The Pepperpot Papers for you, but also this campaign’s top-level bonus incentive: Dialog in Pepperpot Piper! Pledge forty dollars a month and not only will your likeness in period garb be included in the online version of this comic, but you will speak your mind...
Like, “Don’t look now, Toots, but dere’s a robot follerin’ youse!”
Or maybe, “A shot an’ a beer, comin’ right up, Doll!”
Or even,
“Look, Sweetie, between us goils, blonde from a bottle just don’t cut it!”
That's you, yourself, with a speaking role in Pepperpot Piper for all the world to see, admire and... yes… envy! Could life get any sweeter?
As stated above, if you take advantage of this reward it will require an exchange of photographs between yours truly and yourself, and a wait (probably weeks, possibly months) in the queue.

A LEAD ROLE
$3,000 or more per month 0 patrons
You’ve skied Gstaad, naked. You’ve pogoed to Goa Trance in, well, Goa (also naked). You’ve knocked back Stoli from plastic squeeze bottles with cosmonauts on the ISS, and yes, it can now be revealed through the Freedom of Information Act that certain levels of scientifically sanctioned nudity were indeed involved in that undertaking.
And yet in spite of all that grand dissolution something’s missing from the core of your otherwise awe-inspiring life. And that something, my well-heeled would-be patron, is that you’ve never been a leading character in an online comic, the ne plus ultra of our modern zeitgeist!
But now, for the price of keeping the wolf from my little family’s door for the duration of the online run of this comic, I will create an Ongoing Major Character in your image (or in the image of the loved one or nemesis of your choice) and turn them loose in Pepperpot’s world.
Just when your doppelgänger will enter the comic I cannot say, but enter it they will at the earliest logical opportunity with their very own breathtaking storyline. Just imagine it, and wonder if you’ll be a brash antihero, a hissing pulp villain, a plucky force for truth and justice or a power of sensate evil. Will you arrive at the story’s end with a triumphant apotheosis, or a well-earned calamitous fall? Who can say? For that, you must roll the dice and see.
Note: all of this will require an ongoing, open-ended exchange of a great many photographs between yourself and yours truly, from numerous angles, a few with admittedly awkward facial expressions.
Please give your security team a timely heads-up.
