Everyone, I want to extend once again a HUGE thank you to those of you who were willing and able to help out with my sudden computer failure earlier this week-whether by posting, donating, or general moral support! ***Between the donations through the widget on my blog and print orders outside of that, we have reached the goal amount today!*** I am *extremely* grateful to know so many lovely, kind people both in person and through this crazy thing called the internet. And I know how tough things are out there, that many of us are barely squeaking by these days, so your generosity is all the more significant to me. If I get the chance, I'm going to give every one of you a big ol' bear hug. I mean it. 

THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Chynna's Broke-@$$ Mac Fund

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.
