Q: What is Patreon?
A: Patreon is essentially a subscription service where you can support creators making the content you love! Every little bit helps me pay my bills and keep doing what I do, and I can offer previews and goodies where I’m able to show my appreciation.
Q: When am I charged?
A: This Patreon charges upfront, meaning you will be charged immediately for the current month. Afterwards, it’ll follow a regular schedule of the first of every month.
Q: When do I get my rewards?
A: I typically work on those after each pay cycle (January sketches get started after January 1st and so on.) Mailed rewards go out once per quarter, including welcome packages- January, April, July, October are those key quarter months. It’s a lot easier for me to spread them out and reduce shipping and material costs! Postcards are mailed monthly via a mailing service as I’m able.
If you think I missed something, please send me a message! Once in a while something slips through the cracks or I forget to put something on my spreadsheet- I’m just one person and mistakes happen, but I always do my best to meet expectations. Alternatively sometimes delays happen, for health or work reasons (publication deadlines wait for no one!) I appreciate your patience if the situation arises- I’ll do my best to keep patrons in the loop via Discord.
Q: What are my rights as a patron?
A: I always do my best to deliver on rewards- but this is under the expectation that you will likewise respect me as well as my other patrons. It’s not common for anyone to break Discord server rules, be rude during streams, or just generally behave inappropriately towards me, but it does happen. I treat these things on a case by case basis, but I do reserve the right to revoke your pledge or take any other actions I deem necessary.
Q: I can only pledge [amount] but I don’t think it’s enough to matter.
A: Not true! For starters, it’s a nice morale boost- it means someone enjoyed my work and wants to cheer me on how they can! Secondly, all those little pledges seriously add up, and even on their own they can cover small basics I need or treats to give me a boost, like a new pencil or snack! That you want to support me at all means a lot.
Q: I’m supposed to get Discord access- how do I do that?
A: Check your Patreon settings to see if your account is connected- there have been times where it’s buggy, so if you’re not being added automatically please send me a message! If you don’t want to join the Discord that’s okay- but if your Patreon account is connected to your Discord account, it will likely auto-add you on the first of every month. That’s not something I can control, alas!
Q: What are the lifetime milestone rewards?
A: For every year that you pledge, I'll send a thank you gift that you can only get through Patreon! The current rewards are as follows:
- 1 year: enamel pin
- 2 years: lanyard
- 3 years: pencil pouch
- 4 years: glitter keychain
- 5+ years: TBA
Q: I have a question that's not answered here!! Help!!
A: Message me either via email ([email protected]) or Patreon message!
