The Origin Story is three years old now.
That's awesome crazy!
I started drawing the first pages in December 2015,.
At the first of February in 2016 - The very few first pages hit the net on it's own website www.vom-anfang.de
Later than Tapas (Tapastic back then) Animexx and Webtoons followed. (And some unmaintained uploads to Tumblr, Smackjeeves and comixpress, who are not to be continued and I should delete soon |D)
In May 2016 the first selfpublished book was released, which were followed by Two and Three in 2017 and 2018. (And guess what, Number 4 is planned for this year) :D
Patreon was opened in in April 2017 and some of you are with me since back then!! :O
Today I look back and I'm in Awww and real astonishment and gratefulness, because I never thought I would make it so far. The Origin Story was always meant to be a longer story, but yeah... people struggle and stumble - I do struggle and stumble.
I started not with the intention of quitting but to be honest, without your ongoing support, the growing readership to all the plattforms, the love and joy I receive for this project, online as offline maybe I would nonetheless?
Nowadays I don't think ever about quitting and I'm 100% positive that I will finish this project even if I know that it will take me at least another three years. But Hey, halfway through already! :D
And this is just made possible bye you!
Without you the project wouldn't be as vivid and joyfull as it is <3 You have no idea, how much this means to me!
This is why I want to say thank you!
And not with words only, but with a small gift as well.
I intend to quality print the upper illustration In March, without the words, but I'll add a handwritten personal note for you. :) and ship it to all my patreons, no matter how long they are here, no matter which tier, no matter where place you live.
That's the last thing I can do.
Only condition you need to be a patreon of mine and the next (or upper, if you intend to join in March) pledge must go through. (It's for the postal rate ;D)
Please send me your address through private note, if I don't have it already, and the print will arrive you at the end of March or beginning of April :)
Last but not least.
Thank you (again!)
I know that I repeat myself... but it's just the way I feel. Three years are huge. Hopefully we can journey the next three years together as well <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
