We hit out $100 per month goal on Patreon and it’s humbling to think that there’s a fistful of you out there in the wide-open world who liked us enough to make this happen.
We’ve officially turned off our Fiverr account. The comic is now the supplemental income, and we don’t have to do endless free revisions on $5 logos ever, ever again, and that is absolutely thanks to you guys. We’d been phasing it out for a while as we eked toward this goal, but now that we’re here, it feels really, really goddamn good to shut that thing down.
We’re going to be updating Ramen Empire on Monday and Thursday, now, which should give the story a lot more momentum.
But we’re trying to make this a full time job, so let me tell you about some of the ways we’re hoping that will manifest.
If we can push our Patreon up to $150 per month, we’re going to start doing a podcast about the comic — story arcs, stories we threw out, drawing techniques, character development, and a peek into the engine that makes this project putt ever forward.
At $200 per month, we’ll start doing one-shot joke comics that are only for our Patrons.
We’ve got some more goals we’re kicking around, but nothing we want to announce yet; if you’re interested in the kinds of rewards Patreon can unlock for you guys, stay tuned.
We’re going to start expanding our efforts way more, though. I’ve got a kind of huge announcement I’m sitting on, but it’s not quite ready. I can give you a taste, though! Check out our sister-website, Blimpfort. It’s pretty skeletal for now, but it’s going to be an excellent home for all sorts of awesome tabletop gaming resources, and our own prose fiction label.
I’ll see you guys next week! Twice!
