Silly title today– just enough to capture the essence of the couple of new things I want to talk about.  If you look to the right, on the column that goes down the side, you’ll see this new button:  “Buy Me A Coffee.”  It’s a really cute set-up from the folks at Ko-fi.com that helps artists and creative folks accept contributions once in a while in a spur-of-the-moment, don’t-tie-me-down way without having to commit large sums to a Kickstarter or monthly amounts to a Patreon (though you can do that, too). Feel like contributing to a Canadian Independent Comic Creator today?  Simply click on “Buy Me A Coffee” and donate whatever you wish! (Full disclosure: I will probably actually buy at least one coffee if you contribute. Creativity needs fuel, after all!)

I’m also really pleased to announce the inclusion of Two Gargoyles on the Canadian Independent Comic Book Wiki.  These folks — and you can follow them on Twitter as @cancomicswiki — are doing great things to increase awareness of, and build a stronger presence for, Canadian-created indie comics. I’ve already listed my whole library on there, and will be adding character bios for all my characters once I begin receiving the art for each character from the incredibly talented Jeremy Thew. (Hint: the Buy Me A Coffee button helps with that, too!)

I’m very excited about the work I’m doing with Two Gargoyles in 2017. I think this is the year where I go “next level” and learn more, do more, create more, and most importantly, get the work out to more people. I’m really looking forward to having you all on the journey with me.
