I've been considering different avenues outside of Kickstarter to fund future issues/trade paperbacks of Sinsationals in a more stable, consistent way. There's a website called Patreon(www.patreon.com) which is basically a site that allows people to subscribe to artists and support their work via either monthly or per-work donations. 

I absolutely love how generous the Kickstarter backers have been, but I don't like having to make them wait several months until the finished product is available. I want to be able to deliver some content immediately to backers upon getting pledges.

In regards to Sinsationals, what I could do with Patreon is make it to where people could automatically make pledges per finished page(that they would get exclusive access to via my Patreon page). If I don't create the content funds would not be deducted from the backers. Backers would be able to cancel their subscriptions at any time.

I could ask for, say, $.10 per page for Sinsationals which amounts to $3 per 30-page comic. It would be in a more webcomic-y format where I'd submit each finished page rather than readers having to wait until the entire comic is done. I'd automatically be paid $.10 by backers every time I submitted a new page, so the up-front risk from backers is very low and they'd get an instant reward in the form of a new page.

Is this something any of you guys would be interested in supporting? Does the format of Patreon confuse you? Let me know! It's something I've been mulling over but want feedback from my viewers.

Thanks!

So, I'm in the process of possibly cutting a deal that will see funds injected into the Sinsationals project that will allow me to spend more time on the project than previously expected. It's not commission-based. I'm hoping to cut the deal within a few days and this injection of capital will let me focus largely on Sinsationals for at least several months uninterrupted. :)

Just thought fans of Sinsationals should know that more content is on the way!
Considering doing up a piece of original Sinsationals art every month and the highest donation would get it.

What do you guys think of this? Any other features you want to see?

 Hi Scott,

         I just want to say you got some pretty impressive artwork that you got here and I have fallen in love with your Sinsationals gallery and my favorite member of the group Gamma Sex Bomb! I have quite a few of your masterpieces in my faves and look forward seeing more from you in the future. You got yourself a brand new fan in me. Keep kicking some serious ass out there homeboy and Godspeed!
