New Year’s Resolutions
1. Reach $100/month through Patreon.
As of this posting, I am making $47/month through Patreon. I am immeasurably honored by this level of support. I do, however, feel that I can improve my Patreon and expand my base. I will therefore be doing everything in my power to reach out and bring in more Patrons. That means offering new Patron-exclusive services, increasing my output, and catering to your wants and desires.
2. Start drawing two CosPain strips per week.
The idea of increasing my CosPain output scares me. Writing comedy is difficult, not simply because it’s hard to be funny, but because it’s hard to be consistently funny. I have been hesitant to draw more than one strip a week for fear of running out of ideas and sabotaging myself. Well it’s time to conquer that fear. I have several pages of CosPain ideas just waiting to become strips, and so it is time for me to increase my production rate.
To be clear, this does not mean that I will be posting two strips a week. For now, I want to be drawing the strips so that I can develop a substantial backlog. This is the first step, however, towards eventually changing my posting schedule.
3. Complete one comic project in addition to CosPain and The Letters of the Devil II.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how much I miss making smaller comic projects. When I was a student at the Center for Cartoon Studies, my output was substantial, with minicomic after minicomic getting cranked out during my two years as a student. Unfortunately, my longer projects have distracted me so much that I haven’t made a proper minicomic (outside of the CosPain minicollections) since The Man in Green in 2017. This is no longer acceptable to me. So by the end of this year, I intend to release a new minicomic.
I talked about wanting to do this before, but the time has finally come. Before the end of January, I will host a stream on Twitch wherein I will work on a CosPain strip and talk about stuff. I’m still finalizing the details, including the date, time, and whether or not I’ll have a guest helping me out, but I will let you all know once the details are finalized. If you want to follow my channel in advance, you can find it at twitch.tv/bwhcomics.
The Letters of the Devil II
And with that, this newsletter is at an end! It’s good to be back.
If you want to support my work further, please visit my online store. I also have Patreon and Ko-Fi accounts if those are more your speed.
Rock on, guys, and never stop drawing.
