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.
That’s right– Twogargs now has a Patreon!
Hi Folks! My name is Michael McAdam, and I’m a writer. I love comics, and I have been writing them and publishing them on my site, Two Gargoyles Comics, (http://www.twogargs.com) for years.
I believe in the diversity and creativity of the independent creator: I have created comics like Thunder, a half-Norse, half-Canadian superhero; Gloaming, a horror series about a small town with too many secrets; Twilight Detective Agency, a stone-faced gothicomedy about two gargoyles trying to be detectives without being discovered as being inhuman; and Diaperman, a zany comedic parody of the superhero genre itself.
All of these titles are fun to write, but aren’t sustainable without your help! By becoming my patron, you will be the one to help these projects continue; fund and shape new content, and contribute to the indie art scene in a very real, tangible way.
Supporters will get first-view opportunities of upcoming projects, access to private content, and more!
With your support, I can continue generating content using artists across genres, increasing the talent pool of independent, self-employed artists, introducing new talents to the community and creating fresh, creative content. With your support, independent talent can have a stronger voice, creatively.
This Patreon will fund the generation of new content every month on the Two Gargoyles Comics site, free of charge for viewing, and when there is enough for a comic-sized book, it will be gathered all together and made available for print or digital download sales.
So please– support our community, support independent comics, support what you want to see by becoming a Patron!
Getting all packed up for tomorrow’s one-day Red & White Expo at McMahon Stadium in Calgary. And I’m pleased to announce Two Gargoyles will be launching seven new prints, from a new project yet to be announced– new convention season means new products, I’m happy to say!
Allow me to introduce you to The Black Whip, from the pages of Diaperman! You don’t want to be a problem for her, because when a problem comes along…!
Come on down to the Red & White Expo tomorrow to see what other prints I’ll be unveiling!
Also, there’ll be issues of Twilight Detective Agency and Gloaming for sale, as well as the Diaperman Graphic Novel, and only at a convention can you get your comics signed by one of the creators! (Hey– they’ll be worth something SOME day…)
You will also be able to purchase our fantastic “Garg Tract”, A Litany of Vice! We encourage you to buy in bulk so you can leave a copy everywhere. 🙂
Post-convention, I will make a print gallery on the site so you can see what we’ve got available!
2016 is going to be very exciting, especially with your help! Two Gargoyles is looking forward to creating more this year, getting to more shows, having a stronger presence, and getting the comics done and out there! So I’ll be launching a Patreon very soon, and it sure would help if you could tell all your friends about it so that when it launches, it launches BIG.
Onwards and upwards!
