Hi, I'm Tailsteak!

I'm an artist, writer, cartoonist, and game designer, and my main project is a webcomic called Forward.  Forward is a story that takes place in the future, but it's not a typical sci-fi - it's a slice-of-life comedy.  I want to use Forward to explore ideas about society, psychology, relationships, sexuality, economics, and identity in an effectively post-scarcity world.... while staying funny, of course.

I've written a novel called Bang and five motivational books called The Paladin's Guide to LifeThe Rogue's Guide to LifeThe Barbarian's Guide to LifeThe Necromancer's Guide to Life, and The Bard's Guide to Life (all of which are available as free PDFs to all patrons).

I do plenty of other art and writing, as well.  I completed a present-day slice-of-life comic called Leftover Soup that ran for 1000 entries (plus 30 epilogue pages) from 2010-2017.  I've been making comics since my first strip, One Over Zero, that also ran for exactly 1000 entries waaaay back in 2000-2003.  I do the art for a strip called Roll To Save, I have a podcast I do with my brother called Hey, I've Got An Idea, and I run Sexy Self Comics Day every year on March first.

I'm basically a non-stop idea machine, and your continued support allows me to make those ideas a reality.

Thanks!

You get my undying thanks.  Seriously, you shall receive The Thanks That Would Not Die.  Be careful with it.
Icon
$5 or more per month 26 patrons
If you pledge $5/month or more, I'll draw an icon for you, something small, suitable for forums or social media profiles.  It doesn't have to be your IRL face!

(Alternately, if you like Castaway, I'll make a custom mini or card for your copy of the game!)

Commission perma-theme
$10 or more per month 14 patrons
You may have seen that I take commissions, and those commissions have themes that change from month to month... don't worry about those themes.  Any artwork you buy from me is half off!
Comic Cameo
$50 or more per month 1 of 20 patrons
You get a cameo in the strip, either for yourself, your friends or family, or a fictional character of your design.  If said fictional character is not compatible with my sci-fi world, they may appear on a t-shirt or a movie poster or something like that.  Proper notation and relevant linkage in the comments guaranteed, speaking role not guaranteed.
Custom Board or Card Game
$100 or more per month 0 of 5 patrons
I will create a board or card game for you, based on a theme or idea that you suggest.  It may or may not show up in the strip.

Goals
$703 of $750 per month
Once a month, I'll do a big splash-page type picture, something pretty and suitable for desktop backgrounds or prints.  It may or may not be comic-related.  All patrons will get access to these pictures as they come out.
