On June 26th, my ancient Macintosh finally flipped me the bird, grabbed its stuff, stole a few of my records and walked out the proverbial door.
Times being what they are, most freelance comic book artists and writers are not exactly rolling in mountains of dough. Most of us have part or full-time work outside of our chosen profession to make ends meet, we hustle on various career-related jobs on top of that, or are (like so many out there) dealing with unemployment and job searches. It's in this uncertain climate that the most important tool of my trade outside of my drawing board completely broke, and has left me up the creek in more ways than one.
Anyone who really knows me also knows I don't like asking for things if I can avoid it, but after some serious prodding by very down-to-earth folks who care, I've created this small fundraiser designed to help me get a new iMac so I can continue to scan, clean, grayscale (or color) my comic art, write my scripts, flat pages for colorists, teach myself new programs, send and receive art, scripts and reference materials, communicate effectively with my editors, fellow creators and readers, and generally antagonize the internet at large as I am wont to do.
A widget has been established on the right hand side of this blog. Any help towards this goal is greatly, greatly appreciated, in all seriousness, from the very bottom of my extremely goofy, comic-creatin' heart.
