Hi there! I'm Norm Scott, and if you know me, it's probably from my comics, like EGM's "Hsu and Chan," "Violence Man" and "The Otters," or my animation/game work on sites like Cracked and 1up. If you don't know me at all, hey, you're still here, it's not like I'm gonna look a gift horse in the mouth. Thanks for coming, settle in, and get ready for the hard sell!

So, why am I doing this? The simple answer is that, while I've been fortunate enough to make a significant portion of my living income from work in the arts, in recent years it has rarely been from MY arts, specifically. I miss writing Hsu and Chan, Violence Man, the Otters, and all the rest, and as time has passed and new projects arisen, opportunities to work on the adventures of my dear, old, weird friends have been harder and harder to come by. 

Enter Patreon! If you're new to Patreon, here's the deal: you pledge a certain amount of money each month, and that enables me to make funny things for the viewing public. What sort of things? How about...

SPECTACULAR COMICS!

Trust me, I've been drawing comics for a long time now, long enough that you'd be fully justified in wondering why I still have such a hard time drawing human hands! And there's no reason I can't continue to fudge my way around the illustration of basic anatomy as long as I have loyal fans like you behind me! Help me bring Hsu, Chan, and all the rest back to the printed (or digital, whatever) page!

EXCITING VIDEOS!

Keep the funds rolling in, and we'll be able to ramp production up on some of our more-elaborate projects, like the Hsu and Chan video series!  These things are NOT easy to put together, but with your help, you'll be able to experience cognitive dissonance between what Hsu sounds like in your head and what he sounds like on video all over again! And with enough support, we'll even be able to animate some of our other Spookingtons favorites! 

AND MORE!
Point-and-click adventure games, live-action series -- there's no shortage of content to be made, just a shortage of time in which to actually make it. Help me free that up, and we'll go to some weird (good-weird!) places, guaranteed. Check out the goals and reward tiers to get a better idea of what's coming up, and what you'll get out of it! Sincerely, I thank you for your support.

Chip in a buck, and you're an official member of the club! You'll be among the absolute first to know when I start a new cartoony project, or anything else that's interesting (and not bound by a non-disclosure agreement)!
REGULAR NORMSKATEER
$5 or more per month 15 patrons

Pledge five bucks a month, and you're moving up in the world! Get the same exclusive contributor-only news as the lower rank, but also get access to production sketches and other behind-the-scenes tidbits that give you a much better understanding of how awful this stuff looks while I'm still working on it!
DR. NORMSKATEER
$10 or more per month 9 patrons

NOW we're talkin'! In addition to the news and behind-the-scenes materials from previous ranks, you'll also get high-res versions of all new comics and artwork, and get to cast your vote on upcoming projects! Please use your new power responsibly!
NECRONORMSKATEER

Cough up 20 bucks, and you get early access to all new releases in addition to all previous reward tiers! How obnoxious you are about your new privileges is entirely up to you!
ACTUAL NORMSKATEER
$50 or more per month 2 patrons

Way to shake the foundations of reality, patron! You've become so supportive of my work that you may have actually become me! But, don't get me wrong, I still get the money. You, on the other hand, get a custom digital sketch, made to your very own (work-safe, not over-complicated) specifications! You heard me right, I will draw your My Little Pony/Twilight crossover fan-art for you!  And, as always, this includes access to all lower tiers.

P.S. -- to clarify, you'll be getting one custom sketch when you first pledge, and then all continuing pledges at this level will get a new sketch approximately once every three months!

Goals
$398 of $400 per month
ODD-IO
Prepare your ears! Once we hit this goal, we'll prepare the first-ever Hsu and Chan audio podcast! Let the soothing sound of the Tanakas arguing about video games ease you into your morning commute, or carry you gently into slumberland! 
Safety Notice: Do not combine the morning commute AND slumberland options.
