“What’s a patreon?” You might be wondering. “Is it like some kind of kick starter rip-off thing?”
Only while kickstarter is for pledging to support things such as publishing books, Patreon is meant for supporting a story as the pages are being produced online.
People choosing to become a patron donate as low as 1 dollar per month to help support Long Siesta and lend a hand in paying for the upkeep of the website. A maximum spending amount can also be used, so as to prevent them from donating more than they wish, so you will only ever be spending as much money as you are comfortable with.
Along with the sense of satisfaction from being a wonderful person supporting their favorite comic, patrons will also have access to Patreon’s activity stream, where I will post sketches, illustrations, and a few bonus comics created for digital and print books, in other words, exclusive content.
Higher donations will also receive some additional rewards, which you can check out over on the Patreon page.
The comic is still going to be free, and don’t feel like I’m pressuring anyone, because this is strictly for anyone that wants to help out.
Hey ya’ll, inbetween pages I’ve also been working on a second comic on the side, called Boneheaded, and I just released the first 20 pages of it as a digital book on Gumroad.
Boneheaded is a comic about a guy with a skull for a head dipping a curious toe in the career pool of super villainy for one night after being asked out by the local super villain. It’s all-ages friendly, and you can preview the first few pages over here on my tumblr.
You can slide it on into a tablet, or read it on your computer, or print it out even, how convenient and versatile! You are no doubt saying!
Maybe tell any friends you know who might like it, yeah?
My winter break is almost here and I am just now reaching the end of the mega-buffer I stocked up on way back in August.
Hopefully I’ll be able to crank out enough pages during this vacation so that I won’t have to worry until closer to spring.
But anyways, hey wow December, right? It’s like. Cold out. Crazy stuff.
Thanks, Hannah, you are my shining star!
