This is a “begging for donations” post, but bear with me for a moment.  See, my best friend (we’ve been friends since kindergarten) is getting married in September, but he lives in California.  In order to pay for the trip out there (as well as the trip to the bachelor party) Katie and I have had to try to scrape together as much money as we can from anywhere we can.  So unlike previous donation-beggings that were directly for the strip, this one is for selfish purposes.  But I’m willing to work my butt off for it.

I’m offering Kickstarter-like levels of gifts in exchange for your donations.  The higher the amount, the more you get from me.  The gifts will be on a first-come-first-served basis, but I will keep everyone informed as to my progress.  The levels are as follows:

$1.00-$19.00 – Donator wallpaper
$20.00-$39.00 – Custom wallpaper + Donator wallpaper
$40.00-$59.00 – I’ll draw you into the comic + Custom wallpaper + Donator wallpaper
$60.00-$79.00 – Original artwork of your choice (depending on availability) + I’ll draw you into the comic + Custom wallpaper + Donator wallpaper
$80.00-$99.00 – Art commission on 14″x17″ Bristol board + Original artwork + I’ll draw you into the comic + Custom wallpaper + Donator wallpaper
$100.00 and up – Postcard from California with a sketch on it + Signed copy of “If You Give Me Cookies I’ll Believe Anything” + Art commission + Original artwork + I’ll draw you into the comic with a line of dialogue + Custom wallpaper + Donator wallpaper

As you can see, I won’t be lazy about any of this – you give, I give.  The gifts will closed when either we’ve raised enough money to cover our expenses, or until I’ve got more work than I can handle.

If you guys have any questions about anything, leave ’em in the comments or email me, k?

EDIT: For those of you who have never donated before, you click the button on the left labeled “Support the Artist” and it’ll take you to PayPal.

Oh, and here’s the new donator wallpaper:
