I have been spending some time lately setting up a Patreon-page for my upcoming comic that I mentioned here earlier. It is a lot of work figuring it all out, but I think it will be worth it.
Patreon is a crowdfunding website that lets people support creators who make cool stuff.
I have been signed up for a few years, mostly supporting some YouTubers I like.
I am one of many $1 supporters, which makes up the majority of the income for these full-time online entertainers.
I am making the Patreon-page more by necessity than anything else.
I have a very talented artist working on the art, but I can only afford to pay him for one page each month, so I am hoping we can garner enough interest to crowdfund our way to a quicker release-schedule than 1-page-a-month.
None of the funding we acquire will end up with me, at least not at this point. Maybe I’ll consider starting a Patreon for this blog at some point, but I don’t think I have nearly enough readers that anyone would be interested in donating toward my writing-career just yet.
The artist is currently working on the first few pages and the logo, but we have already worked together on some character concepts, so I know the art will be great.
And the story is really fun, even if I do say so myself.
So I do think there will be people interested in the comic, but reaching those people is another matter.
I’ll announce it here as soon as the comic is ready to launch!
Wish us luck 🙂
