Hey everyone! The past week or so has been a bit rough, so let me catch those of you up who don't follow me on Tumblr.
Earlier this past week, a couple of charges came through on my checking account that I had thought already cleared. This caused me to overdraft, and I got hit with two fees, sinking the account balance into the red by about $87 dollars. I had put up a call for donations to make up the $40-50 that I hadn't already collected in commission and YCH payments, to get my account back to zero before my paycheck hit this past Friday.
Much to my surprise, TheHungrySuccubus
came through by calling on her watchers to support an emergency YCH auction that not only raised the money I needed to clear the overdraft, but also helped me pay down a lot of short-term debt that I'd taken on with out bank to try to make ends meet.
In light of everyone's generosity, and a realization that I hadn't committed myself as fully to my Patreon has I would have liked or as my patrons there deserve, I've decided to recommit myself to my campaign there and produce Patreon-Exclusive content.
What does that mean? By clicking the Patreon button at the top of this journal, you'll be taken to my campaign page where you can contribute towards me producing original content.
I've had many people over the last several months ask me when the next original picture, the next comic page, the next this or that will be posted. And the simple, honest answer is that unless I have the financial support to be able to dedicate my time to that original content, it won't happen. I spend upwards of 10-20 hours a week, on top of a 40 hour work week, producing content for all of you to enjoy.
I love creating comics and art for all of you, but I can't realistically keep up the same pace that I have for the past several years without support to help pay for my spouse and I's health, well-being, and financial stability.
That said, if you pledge your support to me, I am making a renewed commitment to all of you to produce original content. Over the past several weeks, I have been storyboarding out a new full-tour vore comic staring my overly-eager mousegirl, Sabina, and a new original character. I've finished the page sketches and will be working on the first page or two in the next week or so. This comic will be exclusively posted on my Patreon to all patrons at the $3 level and higher.
In addition, at different donation levels, you can earn bonus access and other rewards, such as:
- $5 - Access to all Patreon-Exclusive content 24 hours before other Patrons, and a Thank You doodle featuring one of my characters in the pose of your choice
- $10 - A chance to have your OC appear in a quarterly YCH auction
- $15 - Access to WIPs of all Patreon-Exclusive content in development, including scripts, storyboards, and more!
- $20 - A chance to have your OC appear in one of 6 original pinups per year with one of my characters!
- $25 - You or your OC will appear in an original comic, written and drawn by me!
That's not to say I'll stop producing free content here all together. But I simply cannot produce as much of it as I have in the past. So please consider supporting me, and help me produce more of the work that you love.
That's right: I'm ready to start taking commission orders for July! And with a new open call for commissions, I have a goal to pay down some of my debt.
Right now, I'm currently carrying a ongoing balance in short-term advance loans with my bank in the amount of $500. This is a balance I've carried for over a year now, from when I was short paying some my bills in the past, and have not been able to set aside enough from subsequent paychecks to pay down the balance. It's a pain in the ass, and eats away a big chunk of my paycheck that I then have to re-borrow every two weeks.
Well, I don't want to deal with it anymore. And I want your help to shake this off my back.
I'm not setting a limit on commissions slots, but I am setting a deadline and a financial goal. I'd like to be able to pay back at least half of my advance balance this month: $250
. I will accept commissions starting now, and continuing until 9 PM Central Time, Saturday, July 4th.
If you would like to check out my commission options and place your order, click the Order a Commission
button at the top of this journal! You'll be taken to my Commissions page to see available options. From there, you can click the Order
button at the top of the page to go to the Google Form to request what you are looking for. Once your order is placed, I will try to follow up with you and provide an initial quote within 24 hours.
I'm looking forward to trying to reach my goal, and hope that all of you can help and pick up some awesome art in the process! Thank you for your support, and I look forward to seeing your order!
