Dawn is this character's name, inspired by a russian fairytale
Tier Benefits
The "Starving in Belgium" Tier
$1 or more per month 1 patron
One dollar patrons will gain access to all the patron exclusive bonuses, such as the password to Mercenary Fantasies and access to the first-tuesday-of-the-month streams, once that goal has been met.

You will also be able to see all the thank you post cards that I'll be drawing for the twenty dollar and fifty dollar patrons, as well as any teaser material I post here.  Patrons usually hear announcements  first, and get to see bits from otherwise confidential comic art.

The "Handful of Apples" Tier
$5 or more per month 5 patrons
Five dollar backers get a post card sized request.  You can choose the subject of your post card, an oc, a pet, your favourite character, and I will send it to you via email, as well as in the mail.

I will be respecting creator's preferences on copyrighted characters, is the only limitation.  This may mean that I will be sending you the picture for your enjoyment instead of posting it publicly.

You will also be getting all of the one dollar patron bonuses.

The Preorder Tier
$14.99 or more per month 2 patrons
When Preorders are open, this tier will get you a signed copy of the current volume.  Until such a time, you will get your requested mini commission, as well as a sticker set upon your first month.
The Monthly Goodies Tier
$16 or more per month 1 patron
At this tier, I'll be sending Goody Patrons something in the mail at the beginning of each month.  The item will vary fairly widely, from a few stickers, to, say, a mousepad or a keychain, and any other little merch items that I come up with.

Many of the items will come from my redbubble shop.  Others will come from custom print shops.  Depending on whether they go directly from the printer to you, or from the printer to me to you, the shipping time will vary.

If one of the volumes comes out during a month when you're pledged, your monthly item will be that title.

I will announce what the coming month's freeby will be during the preceding month, so that you've got time to pledge if you want in.  Then, I will announce when payments have been processed so that you can adjust your pledge accordingly.

The "Successfully Stealing Food" Tier
$20 or more per month 0 patrons
Twenty dollar backers will receive a post card commission similar to the five dollar reward tier, as well as a small thank you package.

You can expect a few Thistle and Spade related bits and bobs, probably some stickers, and maybe a few surprises, most of which will come from my redbubble shop.

The "Carepackage to AA" Tier
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
At this tier, you will receive a post card commission as the other tiers, as well as a goody package.

As with most of my goody packages, there will probably be stickers.  There will be a few accessories, perhaps some home goods, and other Thistle and Spade related surprises.

The "Accepted into the Bat Colony" Tier
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
At this tier, you'll be entitled to one of my standard character commissions.  

The piece will be roughly 2000pixels by 3000pixels, full body, full color, with limited shading.  I like to bring out the color as much as possible with little details.  

There won't be a background, but you will receive the file as a transparent png, and usually one or two with colored backgrounds as well.

Once you've pledged, expect a message from me prompting your choices, and we can go from there.

You will also have access to all of the speed paint videos and sketches I post here, as well as all the other thank you post cards.

The "Tolerated by the Captain" Tier
$75 or more per month 0 patrons
At this tier, either you may select a commission similar to the 50 dollar tier, and add a second character.

Or, you can add to the complexity of the 50 dollar reward.  In this way you can add more complex color and shading, add a second outfit (I'm a fan of this option, I like to send a transparent png with all the elements so that you can move them around like a paper doll), add a background, maybe get the same character in a different pose for more of a character sheet feel.

I'm happy to discuss the possibilities.  Once you've pledged, expect a message from me prompting a conversation about references and the expected outcome of your commission.

The Exclusive Collectible Tier
$100 or more per month 0 patrons
At this tier, I will be personally, hand crafting, hand painting, and sending to you, a Thistle and Spade Pop vinyl.  At some point, these figures may be more widely accessible, but for now, this baby is only available right here, right now.

While I specialize in creating AA or the Captain, I invite you to request the Thistle and Spade character of your choice.

The "Under the Protection of the Captain" Tier
$100 or more per month 0 patrons
At this tier, you will be entitled to a full sized commission. 


I do classical portraits and full body for the most part, up to two characters.  At this price, you're entitled to full color and shading with line art, or fully realized painting.  Depending on the complexity of the subject, I may offer a background.  If the background is important to you, don't hesitate to let me know.  There's always room to adjust to get you the piece you want.

You and I can talk over the subject, exchange references and emails, and you will be allowed a correction draft.  It will be roughly 2000pixels by 3000pixels, with wiggle room depending on the image.  

Once you've pledged, expect a message from me going over my usual commission process, as well as examples. 

The "Ace of Spades" Tier
$100 or more per month 0 patrons
It is a little known fact that one of my previous free-lance careers was designing custom card decks.  

This is considered a full sized commission.  The image itself is fairly small, but the complexity is where the real meat is.  

The piece is a personalized image that will be radially symmetrical.  This way, when shuffled, the backs of the cards will always match.  I'm always up to designing one of these beauties.  Once you've pledged, I'll prompt you for information on what you'd like on your card.  You can maybe theme it around a pet, or a favorite character.  Perhaps you'd like an image of the baba yaga herself cursing your opponents.

After the commission is complete, I'll print the deck onto bicycle playing cards (the only acceptable brand) and send them to you.  Bicycle has a few options for the faces of the cards, so I'll ask for your preference before sending.
