ok so hey. i haven’t had any new patron signups since 2016, and i lost quite a few following brexit and the nov us election as we all sort of panicked trying to keep our heads on straight. so i’m really pushin this again. 

i am a trans man w a chronic shoulder injury that causes me pain on a near daily basis & a good ol mix of depression and ptsd, and art really is the One Job i can do comfortably these days. i may not be able to do it with the speed of my (pain free) youth, but please. if you talk the talk about supporting broke trans creators or creators with MI, please walk the walk and help me out. even with a small amount. a dollar a month may seem like nothing to you, but it’s something significant to me. it’s 12$ more per year. that’s two bags of heating pellets in winter. in new england. that’s a big difference.

if you can’t manage or don’t want to be a recurring supporter, one-time support is still very, very welcome. 

my cash tag is $cial
my paypal is paypal.me/notfun
my ko-fi is ko-fi.com/A165IWV
my patreon is patreon.com/notfun

any and all support is really, really appreciated. 

my patreon monthly total may look like a lot … but in reality, it’s not. i’m On My Own and not living with parents or off inheritance. i have no other income, and so we barely squeak by. the current so-called ruler of the united states (or SCROTUS) has already passed housing legislation that has cost us 800$ more per year. being under the poverty line from the start, that??? sucks. please, help a queer nerd artist out.

i'm doing my best!! the chronic injury mentioned above flares up really bad in winter, so i've been slower than i wish i could be. i genuinely wish i could crank out a page in a day like in my youth. instead i sit at my desk for a few hours every morning seeing if my shoulder muscles will stop spasming >.>

i'm pretty used to trying to work with it and listening to its 'i need a break or you wont be able to draw tomorrow at all' signals these days... but it does still suck. i do stretch excersizes to help it and take extra vitamin d, but yeah... the damage was done so very long ago, all i can do now is try to cope with it.

please make sure you take care of yourself first clem!! but congrats on actually making it through the disability system to get assistance. i have friends with chronic conditions or debilitating issues who have been trying for ten years and are still getting rejected. that's -life saving- that you were able to get it!!

I'm looking forward it too, but don't stress?? Like, if there's a list, feel free to put me at the bottom of it. Take care of yourself and your endeavors, thanks for being an artist brave enough to commit to your art. :heart:

i literally send out like a bulk note to patrons around the first week of the month & there's a link in there to a form yall fill out to tell me what you'd like drawn. it works really well and helps me keep organized! of course there's a few for whom the form won't work, but it's always fine to email me then (and i always include my email in the note). it helps me kinda spread out drawings of varying complexity over the course of the month!
