We did it! Sent our pitch off to Stacked Deck Press! Wish us luck!

We're going to go sleep now.

DEMOCRACY

You know, I've only been alive as a system member for two presidential elections: Bush/Gore and /.

My opinions of American democracy are pretty low.

EDIT: Also, Rogan's doing his usual monthly writing poll thing again.  Go vote there.

It being the start of a new year, I’ve been doing some bookkeeping: tallying up income, checking patronage trends, stuff like that.

And just seeing how things have changed and improved over the past year... it’s really awe-inspiring.  It used to be, most of my patrons were singlet, but that’s changed; this year, about a third of you are. (And that’s just the Patreon numbers; it doesn’t include you fine folks who buy comics, ebooks, or commissions.) Just over a quarter are friends of mine, just under a quarter are locals who frequent the comics scene, and then there’s the handful of randos who found me through all sorts of random, mysterious ways. (Like fanfic.  No really, one of my best fans apparently found me through a fake news fanfic.  I love that.)

I remember for the longest time feeling that I would never be able to work as an artist.  My business skills, my art skills, my sanity, it never felt like it’d ever be enough.  And I know I might never be more than a small fish.  But just getting the opportunity to even do that... to have people who actually PAY me to do this work...

You guys are wonderful, and I’m honored to have you among my readers.  I hope to never take you for granted, because it’s you guys that help me continue.
