– I’m going to be at the Clallam Bay Comic Con in Washington on July 8-9. This is a cool small show hosted by Donna Barr. I’m looking forward to it! If you live in Washington please come check it out!
– Hi everyone. This month I’m trying really hard to boost my Patreon. For those of you who don’t know, Patreon is a platform that allows the people who enjoy Modest Medusa and my other comics to give me financial support (if they are so inclined) and get rewards. My Patreon is absolutely vital to me since it accounts for about 75-100% of my monthly income (depending on the month). I’m very fortunate to have so many of you as patrons, and your generosity has allowed me to focus on making comics and art as my full time job. However, I really need to boost my Patreon income to cover basic living expenses, and I hope that introducing some new Goals and Rewards will encourage some of who can afford it to become patrons. Even a dollar or two every month really helps!
Last month I began offering a new $10 sketch pledge, where patrons will receive an original marker illustration of a Modest Medusa or Ghost Kiss character of their choice a few times a year. The Mario Kart Medusa above is an example of what you’ll get.
Milestone Goals are unlocked when Patreon funding reaches a certain level. Right now my Patreon is at about $910/month (before taxes, which is what I live on). My upcoming goals are a monthly original art giveaway (unlocked at $1000), new monthly updates of my Legend of Korra fan comic (unlocked at $1200) and a new ongoing Modest Medusa side-comic, updated monthly for Patreon patrons only (unlocked at $1500). My short term goal is to reach $1200/month, which would allow me to actually meet my minimum monthly expenses. I really hope I can reach $1500/month later this year. This is important since income from Patreon allows me to spend my time making comics and art for you to read instead of having to take whatever freelance illustration jobs and commissions I can find just to make ends meet.
So if you’re already a patron, thank you so much for your support. You’ve paid for my food and my medicine and literally kept me alive. If you’d like to become a patron I would really appreciate it. As I said before, even $1 to $3 a month really helps! I know a lot of you are in the same boat I am and just can’t afford to become patrons. I also know a lot of you choose to show your support for this comic in other ways, and I totally appreciate your comments, your reblogs, your likes, your book purchases, your kickstarter pledges and your positive word of mouth.
Thank you all so much. You can check out my Patreon page here.
so…simply tying them with a simple hairband paralyses the snakes? sounds WAY too easy. unless its magical or at least metal i fully expect them to sneak out of the tie when modest is asleep
Pretty sure they’re just cooperating for now. And yeah, they’re totally going to break out of that one. Or at least Sneaky is.
If I could hazard a guess, it may be a reaction to the ‘stranglehold’ of the tie.
Mysterious t-shirt Medusa was our Medusa from the future all along!!!
Your site is keeping me from posting comments.
I know. It’s an ongoing issue and I can’t seem to solve it. Can you describe exactly what you encountered?
It always says I visited the page too many times.
Okay. Sorry for the inconvenience. I don’t know WHY it’s doing this or what the solution is to permanently fix it, but it seems like clearing your browser cache is a temporary fix.I am looking into it. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.
Hey Jake, I posted some test comments from Chrome Incognito, feel free to delete them. Going to try and view the traffic that happens from a browser I know gives me the error. Will update you. Feel free to delete this post too!
Thanks. All test posts came through. I’ll keep this post up just so people can see what you did. FYI, I have not been able to replicate this problem myself, but I did have what I think is a related problem when trying to post new pages a few weeks ago.
Nice hair loopies. She just neds to bend water next. 🙂
