Donating US$1,000 per month would form a colossal core of support towards my budgeted goal of US$7,452 per month. In both time and dollar terms, a recurring donation of this magnitude would equate to the call centre job that I worked for ten hours each week during 2016 and 2017, to make ends meet while also working as an independent artist.
Think about it: your recurring gift of US$1,000 per month would single-handedly unlock 10 extra hours of time per week that I could spend creating and publishing my heartfelt, world-changing comics.
By donating at this tier, you will receive all other benefits from my earlier tiers, including the regular conversations via phone, or Skype.
However, by donating at this level, our orbits will circle even closer towards each other. Once a year, I will fly to your city—anywhere in the world—and stay in town for three nights. During that time, I will be available to collaborate or to converse. To be a sounding board for your ideas. To attend dinner parties, and to extend the relationship that we have already created from our earlier conversations.
Alternatively—if you prefer to be the one travelling—once a year I will fly you to visit me in Canberra, Australia. While in town, I will allow you visit to my art studio, and experience my day-to-day creative routine. This experience will give you tremendous insights into my creative process and worldview.
This tier is limited to just three spots. This tier is limited to my major benefactors.
(Again: Aussie patrons considering this level: contact me and we can discuss obtaining DGR tax-deductible receipts for your donations.)
