Now On Patreon: Snow Angel Goes To The Con

snocon15

It’s First Thursday, and time for another new comics story on Patreon. You can check it out on my Patreon page here. This month’s selection is SNOW ANGEL GOES TO A COMICS CONVENTION, which premiered at Wizard World as a mimicomic under the title SNOW ANGEL’S COMICS CONVENTION COLORING BOOK (Because this story is on the long side, I have divided it into two parts. Part two will appear in June).

Chloe

Here’s my favorite illustration job so far this year, the cover for Montreal singer-songwriter Matthew Azrieli’s EP Chloe. Matthew originally wanted to title it Condoms And Razorblades, after one of the songs, but wiser heads prevailed, and he decided to rename it in honor of his girlfriend Chloe Edelman (for a while Matthew was soliciting title suggestions; mine were Watch The Special Features, Show Me My Reminders, and Naked Ninja Pie Fight).

Video Hangout, Take 2

Screen-Shot-2015-04-29-at-1.53.10-PM

How did that first video hangout go last week? Well, it’s a steep learning curve, and there were some technical glitches, but it went well enough that I’m planning on doing another hangout tomorrow at 3pm PDT. More drawing demonstrations, possibly reading some letters, and diverting chat with special guests. Think of it as a cross between a drawing lesson and a podcast. Once more, I will be doing this through Google Hangouts, and sending invitations to people who are interested through Google plus If you’d like to be part of it, get in touch with me through this website and let me know.

You can check out the inaugural hangout on Youtube here

I’ll be archiving future hangouts as well.

Video Hangouts: The First One’s Free

Screen-Shot-2015-04-22-at-3.48.21-PM

I’m due to do a video hangout on Patreon tomorrow. This is supposed to be a monthly perk for sponsors at the $4.99 level and above, but I figure I’ll make the first one open to everybody. l will likely do some drawing in PhotoShop and some perspective stuff in Illustrator. My colleague and sometimes assistant Jacob Mercy promises to be along for moral support and color commentary. The time will be at or close to 2 PM PDT. I will be doing this through Google Hangouts, and I I will send invitations to people who are interested through Google plus (one reason this first hangout is free is that I am not sure I have ironed all the kinks out yet…) If you have any special requests (“draw Wolverine!”), get in touch with me through this website and let me know.

Thank you for your very kind attention.

Video Hangout
Thursday April 23rd, 2pm PDT

Be there or be square.

Piggola Goes Motoring on Patreon

piggolamotoring

It is the second Thursday of the month, and if you have been following my Patreon page, then you know that’s when I post a comic from the archives. This month’s comic is PIGGOLA GOES MOTORING, part two, a previously unpublished story from one of my sketchbooks, drawn in 1974, when I was fifteen. (Since this comic is on the long side, I broke it into two parts; I posted the first part last month.)

Go Patreon!

Screen-Shot-2015-04-06-at-2.40.49-PM

I have important news, everyone! I am beginning a new project which I hope will make a huge difference in my life, if not in the world. I am launching a Patreon page to support my work in comics. Actually, I launched the page a month ago, but I wanted to make sure that everything worked to my satisfaction before making a general announcement.

What is a Patreon? Well, it’s like a Kickstarter Campaign, but instead of making one big contribution to fund one big project, you make a series of little contributions to keep me drawing comics on a monthly basis. Really, it’s like a tip jar for the cartoonist, and like a tip jar, you can give as much or as little as you like.

This video shot by my awesomely talented friend Milan Erceg lays out the details. You can watch it on the home page, or on YouTube:
