Hello my nocturnal lovelies. If you’ve been following Deviant Art and Twitter I’ve been kicking around the idea of a Patreon account to help support the site and my living and wondering what y’all thought about it. If you aren’t familiar with Patreon, it’s sorta like Kickstarter, but instead of funding a single project, you are paying an ongoing subscription to help support an ongoing project. And in exchange for these moneys you get access to cool bonus stuff. I’ve gotten feedback from a few people, but I want to hear a few more opinions before I invest the time and energy into it. So far my pricing structure looks like this:

$5 a month– early access to all pages (including Sorcerer’s Apprentice once that goes back up)
$10 a month– early access plus bonus commentary (including pointing out all the hidden references, research behind the story, stuff that got cut out.)
$25 a month– The other stuff plus monthly livestream to watch me work and ask me questions
$50 a month– Digital softshade commission of a single character (normally a $65 value!)
$100 a month– Private art and storytelling lessons where I can help you work out all your art and writing problems
$500 a month– One of the original pages from either Midnight Menagerie or Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Of course, this is just an outline and not anything final. If you have any additional ideas or thoughts about the proposal, by all means, comment!
