Thank You For Dropping By!

Hi, I'm Stan! I've been working broadly in geek-friendly media for a long time doing a wide variety of creative things—designing RPGs and board games, writing shared world fiction, localizing manga, doing narrative design for computer games—but the thing I love doing MOST is making comics! You may know my work from the Bolt & Quiver or 10'x10' Toon strips that used to run in Dungeon Magazine and Kobold Quarterly. Or the occasional illustrations I've done for companies like Wizards of the Coast, Monte Cook Games, and Gaming Paper. I even did some caricatures for ESPN2 once.

The trouble is, while I love comics the most, they're the toughest area to get paying gigs in. And even though I'm not a greed-head, I DO have to make sure I can pay the rent, buy food, and all the other things that modern life requires. So while I regularly post doodles, warm-up sketches, coloring pages, and the occasional gag strip on my social media feeds, it's tough for me to prioritize cartooning enough to keep up a regular comic ... or write and illustrate some of the kids stories I have in mind ... or design pins, stickers, and other knick-knacks to bring to conventions. That's where this Patreon comes in!

The funds generated here will allow me to spend more time doing comics. The bigger this community of patrons grows, the more time I can spend on comics. And I won't lie, my goal is for it to be SO successful that I can spend ALL of my time working on comics. But for now I'll be happy just buying back a handful of days per month to spend drawing. The great thing about that is, the more I succeed the more comics YOU get. 

Every little bit of support helps a lot, so thank you for even being interested. If you can't become a patron now, it'd be a kindness if you just helped to spread the word. Remember, success here means more free comics for EVERYONE to enjoy. To begin with, I'll only have a couple of simple patron tiers. And as interest in this Patreon grows, I'll add more tiers and bigger perks to thank the folks who are making it all possible—YOU!

You're helping me to make more comics! Thank you very much! 


Extra Doodles—In addition to Today's Doodle that I post to social media, a few times a week you'll get to see what else lurks inside my sketchbook.


Voting Rights—Sometimes I need help deciding what to work on next, or whether a character looks better in purple or red. Those will happen via polls, and you get to vote.


Inside Access—Anytime I create a new comic-related product, you'll get the option to purchase it before it goes on sale to the general public.

I appreciate your generosity! Let's pull back the curtain and give you a look at what's going on in the studio.


• Extra Doodles

• Voting Rights

• Inside Access


Monthly Update—Once a month I'll write up a post describing how things are going here at the Stannex. It will be a mix of insider stories, glimpses of work in progress, and just general watercooler chit-chat.


First Peek—I have a new comic in the works called 6-Word Stories. Once it's ready to go, you'll get to see them first—a day before they're released to the general public.


Digital Holiday Card—Every year I create a personal holiday card for friends and family. You'll get a digital version along with my best wishes for a very happy season, no matter what holidays you do or don't celebrate.


5% Discount—You get a 5% discount on any purchase of comic-related bric-a-brac that I create for convention sales (or just my personal amusement).


Goals
$5 of $100 per month
When the total monthly pledges reach $100 I'll revamp the patron tiers and add some new rewards.
