A Little about Me
Growing up I loved drawing comic strips. With some practice, I learned to draw funny characters. With some time, I developed a sense of humor. And with some experience, I learned to tell a decent story.

A Little about the Comic
I always liked gag-a-day comic strips, but it bothered me when the stories didn't continue from one day to the next. So I came up with a challenge for myself: create a continuous, gag-a-day comic strip story with two goals: 1) Always make it funny and 2) Always move the story forward. I don't always succeed on both fronts, but that's been my aim.

What resulted was the Smiley Face Commandos: my humorous, action-adventure comic strip about three guys with indestructible heads who face off against villains ranging from disgruntled customer service reps to international assassins. You can find the strip online at www.smileyfacecommandos.com, where you’ll always be able to read the comic for free and see two new strips per week.

How Can You Help Me?
I’m asking you to pledge a small amount each month. Really, it doesn't need to be much - your small contribution helps me keep moving forward. With a little luck, I'll be producing my first book collection of comic strips very soon. With a little more luck (meaning dollars), I'll be able to produce more strips per week. You can pledge any amount you like, for as long as you like.

What's in It for You?
Every pledge tier has different perks, from little goodies like stickers and sketches, to exclusive online content. Pledge at whatever level feels comfortable for you. And thanks for making the Smiley Face Commandos come to life!
