Today is the LAST DAY to get 39%-off savings on my comic strip documentary, Stripped. You can snag the award-winning doc, plus 26 HOURS of interviews with the world's best cartoonists, for just $40!
And like a mythical creature appearing before us, a new DRIVE appears!
And in fun news, I have a plan to get more DRIVE in all our lives: I'm gonna try Patreon.
As you know, DRIVE is my favorite project I've ever worked on. I love the story, I love the characters, I love the whole thing. But DRIVE was always intended to be a story I was writing for ME, and it didn't matter if it ever found an audience or an income. I'd create it when I had free time, and that would be that.
But thousands of people really fell in love with the story. And they didn't want to wait until I had free time. I get constant e-mails telling me I have to produce more pages, and produce them now.
And that's where Patreon comes in. If I love producing the strip, and Patreon is able to create an income for it, then you can bet I will carve out time to make the strip every week. There are no losers in that world.
So consider throwing in a few pennies over at Patreon. And it really doesn't have to be much: The goal is to have very many people kicking in very small amounts.
DRIVE will be starting back up again in early September
I have a plan to get rid of the schedule interruptions for DRIVE: Patreon.
As you know, DRIVE continually takes in on the chin, schedule-wise. I love this story so much -- it's my favorite among all my projects -- but it's not really income-earning. So, in the real world of making a living, it takes a back seat to Sheldon and Stripped. But with Patreon, you could genuinely become a patron of the strip. It's a win-win: I'll be able to block out the time the strip deserves, and you'll be getting more and better updates as a result. More details on that in the weeks ahead when I launch the Patreon page: I've gotta record the ol' Patreon video, first!
For the FIRST TIME EVER, I'm coming to Salt Lake City, giving out free sketches at the huge new Comic Con, Sept 4-6! I'll of course be bringing all the Drive books, Sheldon books, and the Stripped DVDs and posters. But what I'm really bringing? ...Is friendship.
I know there's a lot of Drive readers in and around SLC, so I really really want to ask you to come out! This would be a fun show to come back to year after year, and you can make that happen! Vote with your feet and come say hi! (To sweeten the pot, there's a FREE SCREENING of my film Stripped for all SLCC attendees, on Saturday at noon.)
