Commissions


I’ve decided to return to art commissions, after taking a break from them back in January. You can check out my new guidelines here. There’s even a discount on the prices above, if your commission request includes any of my characters!

My Patreon Exclusives

As some of you may remember from this post, I decided to get rid of the $5 tier on Patreon, after losing all my pledges for it in under a week. The $5 tier was full of exclusive art and comics I never intended to post anywhere else. But since that tier is now dead, I’ve been browsing through all my exclusives to get a better sense of what I should do with them.

Most, as I expected, are pieces I don’t want to share again, so they’ll remain where they are. (Although I technically don’t have a $5 tier anymore, people can still easily up their pledge to $5, if they feel inclined, and download all those old exclusives that way.) There are a few I plan to make public, though…

The first is “Nicholas Learns to Cook,” which I’ve already posted here and here. This Echo Effect comic wasn’t intended to be a Patreon Exclusive originally, since I created it before I even had a Patreon. I had even shared a dialogue-free preview of it years ago, so it felt only right to make this public.

Two others I’m considering are “No Cats Allowed” and “Ethan’s Probably Fine.” (Previews for both can be seen here and here.) “No Cats Allowed” was only posted on Patreon this past June, so it didn’t have much of a chance to be an exclusive before I took away the $5 tier. And since it had taken me half a year to make, it’d be disheartening to let all that hard work be for nothing. “Ethan’s Probably Fine” is also fairly recent, and feels like a good piece to share since it would introduce you guys to a couple Undeath of Me characters you have yet to meet. (Ethan’s wife, for one. It also features a vampire my patrons have been getting glimpses of since January 2017.)

There are a couple other exclusives I’m considering making public, as well, but I’m far more indecisive about those, so I’m just going to forget about those for now and see how I feel about ‘em another time.

Patreon

I lost all my $5 patrons this week. There were already some changes I’d been thinking of making to my Patreon page, so since no one is pledging at the $5 level anymore, I’ve decided to make those changes more dramatic and just delete that tier entirely.

Not sure yet what this’ll mean for all the art and comics I had posted exclusively for the $5 tier. Many, most likely, will just sink into the abyss. As for the others, I’ve been toying with the idea of making them public, but I want to weigh my options before following through with anything.

Because the $5 tier is dead, everyone pledging just $1 will receive heaps more content every month now. Here’s what you can expect to find on Patreon, should you choose to support me there…

  • Access to the patron-only feed, where you can see art, comics, and news about my projects weeks before anyone else!
  • High-res downloads of my art, comics, and sketches!
  • Exclusive WIPs!
  • Free wallpapers!

So, yeah. If you enjoy my comics and want to help make it easier for me to create more of them, I hope you’ll consider checking my Patreon page out.

No Cats Allowed

My latest exclusive for Patreon is a comic based on Spencer’s prequel! It features Spencer as a human, along with his kitty friend and his father, Leroy. It also features Spencer smiling, which—as anyone keeping up with my concept art can attest—is a pretty rare thing for his human self to do.


The original sketch can be found on Patreon, as well! Here’s a preview…


I started drawing the actual prequel this year, so this will most likely be the last piece of concept art you see of Human Spencer. (Not counting sketches or ACEOs, since those are less time-consuming.) More art of his past can be found here, here, here, and here, in the meantime.
