Long story short: I’m being kicked out of my apartment. I have nowhere to go. My brother, who lives here as well, is in the same boat. He and I are now trying to find some way to not be homeless by this time next month. We may be moving across the country as a result.
I’ve been in some dire straits before, but never faced with the immediate threat of homelessness.
So it’s with hat in hand I come to my fans today.
Normally I do not feel right just asking for donations. In the past I have opened up donations only for brief periods, and only under the stipulation that I would be offering drawings in exchange, so it would feel less like a charity, and more a series of commissions in which donators could name their own price. Now, however, I do not have that luxury. Trying to find a home and a source of employment several states over is my priority.
It is important to stress that this time around, I cannot promise art in return on a per-donation basis. Once I’m gone, I don’t even know how long it will be before I am back again.
But I want to be able to do something for those who have stood by me, my fans and supporters. I can’t treat this plea for help as a pseudo-commission run this time. All I can say is I will try to make this up to you.
I know I am asking for a lot. But I am desperate now, and I’m reaching out.
If you have enjoyed RubyQuest, NanQuest, DiveQuest, EFG, Player 1, Boxdog, even my stupid little scribbles in the margins or the ponies that populate these pages, you owe me nothing. These works have been made for your entertainment, and mine. Nothing more. I did not create them for you in the expectation that I would get something back, or the delusion that I deserved anything for them. But if these things have pleased you, and you want to do something to help me, I need all the help I can get. Even if you can’t spare any money, please help me get the word out there.
If you think it is worth doing, if you decide to help, please send your PAYPAL donations to:
As for you reading this - whether or not you decide to donate, I want to thank you for your support over the years. I cannot forget the help of those who have stood by me or simply enjoyed the strange and crude art I create, for it is you who have made my work and at some points even my continued existence possible. You have my appreciation and gratitude, even if money never comes into it.
So, thank you.
This man has inspired me greatly over the years. I wish to do my part in spreading the word
