As an independent creator, I'm funded entirely by reader pledges and donations. Reader support is what lets me spend time writing and drawing, time I'd otherwise have to spend working for the Man to keep a roof over my head.
If you'd like to help support my work on The Vapors, you can either become a monthly patron through Patreon, or make a direct donation through Paypal.
These pledges and donations are what make it possible for me to continue to work on creating The Vapors, and I'm incredibly grateful to everyone who contributes. As a small token of my gratitude, I offer some rewards to supporters.
Rewards are based on total amount given, added up among all past pledges and donations.
If your total support equals or exceeds...
$25 - Your name will appear on the Credits page of this website, thanking you for your support.
$100 - I'll do a sketch of your choice, or if you don't have a preference I'll think something up. If it's drawn on paper, I'll mail you the original as well.
$250 - I'll send you a signed physical copy of The Vapors. I'll doodle something on the inside cover as well, if you'd like.
$500 - I'll do another drawing for you, this time a fully finished piece, with color if desired. If you'd like something you could use as an avatar, a tumblr header, a youtube channel banner, or something like that, let me know and I'll format the image accordingly.
$1000 - I'll draw you, or a character you own, into the background of a future comic. You'll also be listed separately on the Credits page, along with a picture of you as depicted in the comic.
Rewards are available to anyone, whether you're giving through Patreon, Paypal, or both. With Paypal donations, just include some contact info so I can make sure you get any rewards you deserve! You can also email me to confirm that I know who you are and that your donation was successful.
The rewards are cumulative. For example, if you donated $10, then a month later donated another $20 (for a total of $30), you'd get the $25 reward. If then, for the next 3 months, you gave $30 each month (for a total of $120), you would then get the $100 reward as well.
On the other hand, if you were to donate $100 all at once, then you'd immediately get both the $25 and $100 rewards.
