Hi! I’m Yale Stewart and I’m a cartoonist. Thanks for stopping by to check out my Patreon! A lot of you have asked me about when I’d start a Patreon, and it looks like the time has finally come. On the other hand, some of you may be wondering why I need a Patreon at all, so let me explain.

My claim to fame is webcomics, which I put online for everyone to read for free. I love doing that, as it means anyone and everyone can read my comics at no cost to them. However, since it doesn’t pay, I generally have to find outside sources of income, whether it’s freelance work, commissions, or hitting the convention circuit. Frankly, I enjoy all of those things, but sometimes the overall workload can get in the way of my favorite thing: making comics. With Patreon, I’d like to achieve a greater amount of both financial—but also production—stability.

Financial stability speaks for itself, but let me talk a little bit about production stability. If I have a better idea of where my rent is coming from, I can spend less time on random oddjobs, and can focus on making comics. To start, I’d love to get to a reliant, page-per-week update schedule. With enough support, I hope to even get back to two-pages-per-week. Patreon could also open up other possibilities, such as live streaming the creative process on platforms like Twitch, or exploring other genres that interest me, whether it’s fantasy, biographical, or particularly comics inspired by music.

To break it down, here's what Patrons will receive from my page regardless of how much I earn:
  • Access to all the comics I create
  • Behind-the-scenes content, like step-by-steps of the process
  • "From The Vault" content: commissions or prints you may've missed
The more I'm able to earn monthly, though, the more content I can create, in both volume (the number of comics) and diversity (videos, tutorials, AMAs, etc.).

For now, though, I’d like to just be able to produce comics steadily and reliably, and further develop the community of all of my amazing supporters who’ve helped me make this my career for the past 6 years. If you can chip in, I appreciate it more than you could ever know. If you can’t, hey, that’s totally cool, too. Either way, you’ve been helping me live the life I’ve wanted for myself since I was five years old, and that’s good enough for me.
