Default Donations and Selling prints

I know Faulty sniped my post, but I figured I'd post here anyways.

Next week, I'm attempting to update 3 times a week. Not with minis, but with full fledged updates. This is something I'd like to do full time, and something I'm sure you all would appreciate as well. Unfortunately, come the end of next month, I'm not sure I'll have the time or money to do this, and we'll roll back to once a week updates or maybe even not at all.

I talked with people over twitter about this, and the idea that we eventually ended with was I'll open up donations, but being somebody who's not great at accepting charity, I thought people might enjoy getting a nice desktop for their money, or a nice print for the people who gave just a little more. I don't like the idea of getting something for nothing.

So here's how this works, in case you haven't seen the post on tumblr about it yet, I'll make a new desktop each month that will be put behind a paywall for whatever price you want. For people who pay 15 dollars or more, I'll send a limited print of the desktop for that month (signed if you request it). Once that month is up, that desktop will be removed from the paywall and everyone will be able to access it for free, and you'll never be able to obtain a print of it ever again. A new desktop will take it's place, and the cycle continues!


This desktop will stay up until the end of March since February is a short month, and it's almost over anyways.

I'm testing waters this month and next. This will pay for hosting, go towards advertising the comic, gauge how a store would do, and if I can actually accomplish living off of making my own art.

Protect your children by keeping people like me off the streets!

Honestly wish I had some money to spare.

Just a suggestion though, if you're planning on making this comic a living have you considered expanding on the merch at all? T-shirts, posters, coffee mug, hard-book edition, condoms. All that junk.

Also after the long breaks you've taken in the past I think people are more than happy with even just a single update. Keep on making those minis though, those were my favorite parts about the webcomic.

Also upload the old minis dammit!

The donations are going to help with merchandising next month. Instead of just looking for somebody to make shirts, posters, and lemmy shirt striped condoms next month based off of readership, I'll have data that says people want to give this comic money and here's how much.

Minis are coming too!

Is there a link anywhere off the main site?
Cause I couldn't find one and needed to head back to the forums to find it.

Might be a good idea to put a link there for people who don't use the forums and/or tumblr?

You can still get it, actually. Now would be a good time to point out that all the old shirts are on clearance here for 10 dollars.
My contract is up with these folks though, and I don't think I'll get money from it, and it's only going to be certain sizes, but these are going away, and if that means something, go ahead and get one while the getting's good.

I'm probably going to revisit the death and air bass ones with updated designs.

Working on that too. Gotta catch monocle online to do that, which usually involves him making time for me since he lives on the other side of the globe. Monocle is good people.

I'll probably donate some money sometime soonish. At least $15.

Decided to put my money where my mouth was and donate, considering I've been singing your praises about the direction you've taken your comic. I pray you get the funds needed to stay operating, Krudman!

Didn't know there was a Facebook page! O:

But yeah, I'd like a picture like that. Now I'm thinking up ideas of what it would look like.

Yeah, pretty sure he has a link to the Facebook page on the front of the site. Though, it's the only page there that's not run by him.

Hey, I'm having an issue with the donate button. I don't know if paypal is having issues with their website or what, but I'd really love to get a print and support Krudman.

Do not expect to see a print of me, although I am flattered.

Death can be arranged. In fact that might make next month's wallpaper more interesting if I put him in it.

Maybe you could do some merch like Brawl in the Family does, but perhaps with a little less copyright infringement?

Donated $100. I'm just glad you've made something that's brought good people together, Krud. Thanks.
