I’m making my Patreon live today!
What is Patreon?
Patreon works like an ongoing, monthly Kickstarter. Like Kickstarter, you can choose to pledge whatever you wish - with rewards offered at certain pledge levels and collective stretch goals that you can pledge towards. You can adjust your pledge as you need or stop it entirely at any time.
Why am I on it?
Patreon is a way to help support the content creators you like; no matter how big or small your contribution is, it all helps! Funds gathered through Patreon help me rely less on my office job and more on creating what you want to see. Every little bit helps me support my expenses, and helps me make the time to bring you even more art.
What am I creating?
Currently stretch goals are oriented around my project Breakaway, however over the next few months I plan to build and offer additional, original content (comics!), with a long-term plan of launching a new story in January 2016.
What are the rewards?
Primarily I am offering early viewing of Breakaway pages (this will expand to early access to other content as it becomes available as well). I am also offering commissions below my regular pricing, as well as sketch commissions as a cost-effective option, for those who would like a piece, but find my finished works out of their price range.
Does this change what non-patrons see?
No! It only changes when you see it and what resolution it appears as. Patrons will receive materials and images before I make them available to everyone, and in some cases will have access to higher-resolution versions of images. Breakaway will still update every Friday (if we meet certain goals, I will even do additional pages some weeks), in the same format that you’ve seen before, but now you have an opportunity to see it early.
When do I get my rewards?
Once I receive confirmation that your pledge has been collected through your method of payment, I will share your digital rewards with you, and if you have pledged for a drawing, I will contact you via email.
