I decided to open an account on Patreon. This is the link. It's just something I wanted to try out and see how it works. I'll be actively doing my own comics this year and it will take a whole heap of money to have them printed. What I make from my day job simply not enough anymore, what with all the expenses I have here at home.
On Patreon I will be posting patrons only blog entries and artwork (dealing specifically with the projects I'm working on, things I will not repeat post here in this blog).
Further perks down the line include sketches on any book that I publish through Komikero publishing that's been helped by Patreon patrons.
That's just me dipping my toes on funding options for comic book publishing that I have not explored before. If you become a patron, thanks very much! I will offer more perks soon!

It's already 11 days into 2018 and I thought I'd write something here. I did finish inking Phoenix #5 over the New Year's holidays and I've been taking it easy since then. I have a big thing happening next week, which just happens to be my 50th birthday. And it's like HOLY SHIT I'M FIFTY. When I was young I thought 50 year olds were white haired grandpas with grand children and walking canes and reading glasses. Although I do have reading glasses. I do have a walking cane. I neither have white hair nor do I have any grandkids. I don't even have any kids. Except for my dogs. Although my body is no longer as energetic as it once was, my mind seems to be the same when I was in my 30s. I still have so much I dream of doing... so much places I dream of going. It's my body that's keeping me because it's all starting to fall apart. And I'm just trying so hard just to keep that from happening.
