Progress on my AER HEAD comic project is going very well! As for the Patreon itself, as of this posting I'm 38% of the way towards my goal of $100 in the first month, with 2 weeks to go. If you're considering donating and want to check it out, but are unsure about long-term commitment, remember that you change your donation amount at any time.
I've also added a NEW $50 tier, which is custom art of any AER HEAD character, or you AS one of the characters! I think my comic con peeps will like this tier, because it's similar to my sketches at comic cons! If you select this tier, you'll get one 5"x7" original color illustration per month of one character, mailed to you.
I recently did the math on how long this project will take given my current pace. If I continue working on AER HEAD for 20 hours a week, I can complete issue #1 in ONE YEAR! I'd be able to do a 6 issue series in 6 years. But if I don't reach my larger goal by mid-October, I'll need to cut the project's time by half or more to make ends meet, and the project may stretch beyond my 40s. If you donate, you're not only giving the gift of $, but of TIME as well.
If you have any questions, feel free to comment on this blog post or on social media, or email me at " mindy at mindyindy dot com ". Please help me to raise another $62 by August 14! Since I'd like to celebrate reaching the $100 goal by taking my first surf lesson (the comic features surfers) I realized I have to achieve this before it gets too cold in the fall. Every dollar helps, and I really appreciate all the donations! If you've been following my career and have been inspired in any way, now is your chance to give in the name of art! Go to https://www.patreon.com/mindyindy and select a fun reward tier and get a behind-the-scenes look at AER HEAD! Thank you very much!
