I draw stuff, like this:


And I write things, like this (go read, but hurry back).

Patreon (the website we're on right now) gives you the opportunity to support my work and get unique rewards. I love it. The support of my patrons means so much to me. It has helped me cover website and software costs, create more and better content, and present my website in a more professional way. But my favourite things is that I can thank fans by providing, special, extra things for them.

If you like my stories and comics and think they're worth a few dollars, maybe you are patron material.

Special, extra things include:
  • Extra behind-the-scenes stuff.
  • A comic of you hanging out with a dinosaur.
  • A hand-drawn portrait of your pet.
Check out the full list in the sidebar to the right of the screen!

And if rewards and recognition aren’t your thing, you can opt out of them.

It’s really easy to set up. All you have to do is hit the big, orange ‘Become a Patron’ button in the top right of the sidebar. And don't worry, you won't be locked in. If you want to change your pledge (or stop pledging entirely) you can do this at any time.

Set it as your social media display pic, print it out and frame it, get stickers made and canvas your neighbourhood with it, print it on a six-foot canvas for the focus point of your shrine to yourself. Whatever you like. (Digital image).

  • PLUS I add you to my Christmas Newsletter list (which I just decided I have), which I will post to you every year! I don't seriously think anyone will do this, but I really hope I'm wrong.
Goals
$82 of $100 per month
I estimate that with $100 a month (minus predicted software subscriptions and website running costs) I will be earning roughly $2 for each hour I work on my comics, stories and website. In many professions this would be underwhelming at best and illegal at worst (depending on the country you work in), but as a creator I would consider this a massive win. I will celebrate by dancing around my house and crying in happiness before drawing something exclusive for my patrons.
