My Patreon Support page

Hey everyone!  
I just wanted you to know that I am creating a Patreon Support page for my OUTNUMBERED comic strip as well as other creative endeavors.  Please consider checking it out and supporting me: 
My Patreon PAGE:

I'm asking for YOU'RE support to help me in making my online webcomic "Outnumbered" but also so that I can make MUCH MORE creative stuff!  

What is TOM BANCROFT doing?

A really good question.  Here's the short answer: I'm asking for your financial support (no more than the price of a bottle of water or a coffee a month!) to help me get my weekly webcomic, "Outnumbered" colored, urled, and hosted every month!  But that's not all!  I'm going to make this THE PLACE to have access to me and custom artwork from me.  Once we hit some of the milestones on the left side, I am ALSO GOING TO LAUNCH INTO OTHER CREATIVE ENDEAVORS THANKS TO YOU! 

 What is this PATREON thing?  

It's crowd-funding at its best!  Much like Kickstarter, Patreon is a way to support a creative person who's work you love.  BUT unlike Kickstater, Patreon is not just to back/support ONE PROJECT, but many!  In a very real way, you are supporting the CREATOR, not just a project he/she produces.  I want to create MANY different things with the support you bring me every month.  The more support I get, the more I will pull away from other jobs and become the kind of independent artist I want to be!  In the end, I'd love to be able to be producing work directly for you instead of for publishers, studios, agents, and others to take their part and charge you more for it.  I believe this is where the creative arts are going and I'm excited to be doing it with you!  

What will I GET?

​My goal is to give you as much "behind the scenes" and EXTRA art concepts as I can!   Depending on your giving tier, I will be giving you OUTNUMBERED (the rough pencils version!) a day or two early, a custom "sketch a week" created by request from one of the Patrons, t-shirts (I think I have this figured out to be able to pull off!), original artwork , webisodes, and Google Hangouts where I will LIVE DRAW.  Sounds good, Right?  

​Here's a sample strip in its "rough pencils" form- EXCITING!:

I will be doing  "HOW TO" videos like this one on "How To DRAW MARK" (my OUTNUMBERED main character) as a sample:
