Well, so. Next month (November 2016) I'll be going to Japan, and that seems like a pretty good excuse to send $5+ backers fun, touristy postcards from Japan. If you're already a $5+ Patron, you're all set! Sit back and wait.
If you are NOT a $5+ Patron, but desperately want me to draw a weird thing on a Japanese postcard and send it to you, well. Make sure you pledge $5 or more for the month of OCTOBER. That's this month. The one that's almost over. Pledges for October are charged at the beginning of November, hence October-backer postcards are mailed in November.
If you JUST want to plop down $5 for the month of October to snag a card and otherwise drop back to a lower tier, or you just want to do a one-time pledge, that's cool! I have no problem with that.
But I encourage you to stick around for November, as I'm planning to do short diary comics of my Japanese travels, and Patrons will get first peep at those.
So yeah. Just a few days left to hop on the postcard train* to JAPAN.
* Not actually a train.
