Introducing, the Spilt Ink Patreon!

Crossposting from SpiltInk.org

2014-12-14 13.28.55Hello friends, it’s been hectic as I’ve been focusing on Dracula and trying to get Revolver Four out asap, and getting the final batch of Dream Life books out the door? Taking too long, not helped by nasty cold bug last month. Back at it now, playing catchup… sooo late late late.

The only upside of being sick is I got a lot of writing done, including a workable draft of the Patreon page text I’d been meaning to attempt to write since signing up in the summer. Important bit of business as it’s planned to be a key aspect of the market presentation of Revolver Four. The issues will still be available as individual downloads, but with #4 I wanted to offer subscriptions of some kind, and then had a better idea.

It was a good call. Just a few days in I’m already up to $30 pledged a month from my first three patrons! I look at this as a slow and steady thing, that does not need huge numbers to work. So that’s an inspiring nice early start for me. Already time to thank some Patrons!

One wished to be anonymous. Thanks very much for your patronage. Shannon Becker. A long time fan from back in the days of Saint Sinner [she had proof!]. And Ian Hodgkinson! One of my Dracula Kickstarter backers in fact! Thanks for the faith in me Ian!
Thanks to all of you! :)

I have one in the works. But no pitch video so far. I noticed a number of comics related patreon pages without them and doing fine. So not rushing that. I am doing a regular patreon podcast, and the 3rd episode is mostly a discussion of the campaign, you can listen to that here.

_________________________

Here’s pitch text!

Welcome to The Spilt Ink Patreon!

Hi. My name is Max, aka Salgood Sam. An artist and storyteller. For the last 20 years I’ve primarily made comics and drawn for a living. I also sometimes work as a Designer, Editor and part-time Art Teacher.

I’m developing a patreon clip for my youtube channel, but for the moment I’m just going to post a trailer for my latest book. Dream Life | a late coming of age, above. For the significance of that, read ahead to“The First Goal is $350 monthly”. And for an audio version of some of this, I’ve posted a launch episode of the podcast! I explain in text below and in the podcast what I’m hoping to accomplish.

For those of you new to it, Patreon lets you support creative types like me via a pay-what-you-can sliding scale financial considerations–You can change or cancel your pledge at any time.

A lot of the content I’m posting is already free to read or watch online.

Check out the activity blog to see what I’ve been up to over the past year I’ve been posting content to it pretty frequently and plan to keep the Patreon blog here, current with content I post across the web from Youtube clips, webcomics, sketchbooks, tutorials, my fathers photos and words, to blogging & blogging! I keep busy.

The very short pitch is I’m looking for patrons from as little as $2 monthly, to as much as you feel comfortable pledging! You can even pledge less than $2 if you just want to help out at a minimum with a monthly tip. I’ve set up a range of rewards to accommodate a lot of possibilities. All limited in availability to keep fulfilment from swamping or profit from obscuring the core goals of making and publishing great comics and other creations! And if enough of you choose to support my work in this manner, everyone will get to read all of it, digitally for free!

Ok, here’s a slightly longer version.

Over the last couple of decades I’ve financed my personal projects* via grants, investing portions of my freelancing income, selling a decent number of books and art now and then. And in the last few years crowdfunding has become a serious factor with three modestly successful endeavors so far. More than 20 years and I’m still learning, especially since I’ve been pursuing self publishing more.

*I should note, my personal projects don’t JUST include comics, though most of it is comics or comics related now!

I’ve also been experimenting with formats, webcomics and other digital modes, attempting to move with the changing market and find what suits me best. A diverse range of platforms seem to be the road to go, but what’s missing still is a bit more stability and a simple way to get my content to readers without paying too much of my two bits in fees. I could get a lot more done I think if I could just simply resolve that set of problems. It’s in that hope that enough of you choose to pitch in a cup of coffee’s worth a month on this page, and make it happen!

A few years back I started working on re-booting  Spilt Ink–a boutique self-publishing imprint first launched back in 2002 for websites and small press zines and active ever since–as a more focused, dedicated venture to publish my own serialized solo anthology Revolver Quarterly, and possibly all my future books!

Why Revolver Quarterly? I think a print ready, digital anthology series is best suited to my style of comics. It’s a format and strategy I’m passionate about. And Patreon seems a practical and appealing alternative to traditional subscription models, and includes a viable distribution platform for patrons as well.

If you dig it and want to help keep it all happening,

pledging $2 monthly will make you my Patron!
Only $24 a year!
[All prices on Patreon are in $US dollars.]

I have two Phases of Goals planned.

PHASE ONE
WORKING TOWARDS
$1250 MONTHLY.

For the minimum pledge Patrons will get digital subscriptions to Revolver Quarterly, and be members of The Spilt Ink Patrons club! The club will grow to be an extended suite of digital & print ready publications. Not just my own comics, but also publications related to the websites sequentialpulp.catheitalianmachine.spiltink.org, and dd.salgoodsam.com. From the start it will include Revolver Quarterly Vol One, Two & Three, and Therefore, Repent! And free to read online already is Sequential Pulp Vol One, Two & Three. I hope you stick around for coming issues of Revolver and more, but out of the gates you’ll have 260 pages of comics waiting for you to read!

The First Goal is $350 monthly!  When we reach it, my newest graphic novel Dream Life | a late coming of age will be added to the library of books patrons can download anytime!

The Second Goal is $650 monthly, and if we achieve it, along with getting more comics done faster thanks to seriously taking care of most of my expenses, I’ll make the 20 min patreon podcast bi-weekly.

The Third Goal is $950 per month, and I’ll be so happy when this happens I’ll throw a Comix Jam Party! You’ll all be invited virtually.

PHASE TWO 

WE REACH THE 1250K MONTHLY GOAL!

At which time, Revolver and the ENTIRE Spilt Ink digital line,
will go PBS, or if you rather, Open Media!!

100% digitally free!

It will take just 625 generous patrons
$2 a month to unlock this goal.

Obviously the main reason for charging for my work is simply to make a living – it is already how i do it generally as a freelancer. But doing it on my own terms and just for my own projects is what Spilt Ink is all about. And my experience with books like Sea of Red, Therefore, Repent! & now Dream Life, Is that I think i have at least that many potential fans and readers out there? Maybe…

Fingers crossed. I think people enjoy the idea of helping make cool things happen and introducing others to something we like by making it easy to get at.

I’ve never really liked adding adds to my sites to try to make it all pay for itself. We tried it on Sequential for a while but were never happy with the results either financially or aesthetically. So I don’t take that seriously as an option. It’s a lot of work, a whole job, getting The Right advertisers and managing that. And it looks so much better without all that noise on my sites.

A lot of the culture of the web is built around the idea of open media. And at the same time, my experience from crowdfunding is there are also lots of people who are willing to put a couple of dollars on something they like. A tool to address that dynamic is exactly what Conte and company have built here with Patreon I hope, which is potentially pretty amazing.

If my Patron base can become a viable solution to earning a living, you’ll make it easy to give it all away online so everyone can enjoy it with you!

I’ll still be selling print copies of things, after all I like paper and getting to sign books! But I’ll be more than happy if this works In the long run and a large portion of my readers are digital.  You could help make that happen by pledging and joining The Spilt Ink Patrons club.

The Patrons blog includes exclusive video & blog posts, zines of comic jams, live drawing sessions, sketches, and deals on material goods I sell on my site. Premium rewards Include postcards, physical copies of mybooks, handmade things? Art lessons, original art & commissions!

of Revolver Quarterly,
check out the rewards
and goals, and thanks for
considering becoming
my patron!

Slow web, sick on the CBC, and doing the work.

[PreS: sorry you early birds if you got surprised by the auto-play, fixed now.]

Recently been reading Warren Girard Ellis’ ramblings again, that last post a couple of days ago, making listing to this back logged episode of tmsidk the second or third time mention of the ‘slow web’ or something like it has come up for me in the last week, when Tell Me Something I Don’t Know interviewed Jeffrey Inscho.

Hah, that would be just my luck, as i’m finally getting half a hang of promoting myself publishing ventures at something approaching the pace it seems to take to get anyone to take your seriously online or noticed in the torrents of updates, the game would go and change from under my feet.

Being buddhistly inclined I liked a lot of what he had to say about applying mindfulness to your work in the digital sphere. I do try to do just that as much as my mind will allow. Also think I spotted some impracticalities too. Share Jim’s concern about the narrowing of focus and echo chamber effect [something he mentioned in passing in the interview].

We will see. Agree enthusiastically with the sentiment of it, as a card carrying member of the old slow action movement I’d far rather quality of interactions trump update cycles.

Over time I do think they count more. But when you’re still one of many, and growing numbers of creators trying to raise awareness of our work, and have as eclectic a reader base it seems I have, I’m not sure how much liberty I have to choose to overly narrow band broadcast. I feel like on the edges of your media domain you need to have fairly fast moving streams to match the pace of the rest of the web, to draw in readers to your core presentation. I don’t post on the blog here rapidly. No way I could keep up with a even once daily rate that Warren thinks of as a lower gear, while maintaining a good level of quality of content, and keep on top of my artwork. Beyond the usual challenges of content creation being dyslexic makes the process of writing and proofing laborious.

But Facebook, my pages, and twitter, G+ to a degree too, I can post small bits of thought or just promote other people’s stuff – something I agree with Dean Haspiel about being a important and valuable role to play, not just as being a community builder but also being someone anyone cares to pay attention too as well. Rather than someone who only talks about themselves?

I suspect some aspects of the slow web Warren and Jeffrey talk about is in part the privileged cruising gear of those who’ve established themselves. For those that describes It makes a lot of sense to economize your efforts.

At this point I follow the feed-back, post more where I find I get responses and less where I don’t.

Never was all in for twitter, it’s always been a semi-automated branch of my blogs. Don’t have a phone attached to my hip so it was never practical for me and too much of a distraction from the drawing table.

For the moment I get far more attention to my work on Facebook than anywhere else. My computer is seldom far from me so when I brake to pace around, grab a coffee, or set up a show to half watch, I often check in and poke around, like or share something, post a bit of work i’m in the midst of.

I tried promoting a couple of posts on Facebook recently connected with RevolveЯ. They got a lot more views but I remain unconvinced if it helped all that much. I did notice that you have to watch it with that, need to look closely at how the options are laid out for you when you set up a promoted post. Seems like a default was to keep promoting and charging after the budget I had set was spent. Not sure what to make of that but I was not pleased to find I was getting charged again without first being asked. As is too often the case it feels like communicating is not FBs strong suit. Incidentally it’s been amusing to watch as twice as many people who’ve added me as a contact in the past 6 months, did so in the last week on Flickr post instagram TOS fiasco. All good, welcome to all. I was never on instagram so works for me.

Speaking of attention…

Having a hard time getting some key comics news sites to pick up my press for RevolveЯ. Others have, but a few of the key players are being tough nuts to crack. Another round of press needs to be done, hoping I can get more traction in the new year. Wondering if I rubbed some the wrong way along the line or something? For sure not really being part of the convention circuit has not helped. Last show I did was TCAF, and that just as a civilian. Ran into one former editor I once worked with who now blogs, it was kind of awkward, as is to happen at these hectic things, but has not replied to an email since?

Be nice to go to more shows and have more fluid relations with the comics diaspora at large, have a chance to build solid friendships in person. But my lack of funds aside, when am I supposed to make time for that and still draw my books, and do all the other shit we have to do ourselves these days eh? Would love to, but we have to have a successful book first. For that we need the book we have to get coverage so people know it’s there to order or buy. A dog and tail game.

Best is if the word gets out more virally, and becomes something the diaspora can’t ignore. If you’re reading this, do us a favor and check out the book if you have not already, mention it to a few someones, share it blog it and if you’d like to review it contact me about that, be glad to oblige. I have lots of visitors and followers these days but outside a core group not enough sharing what they find to get that fantastic fractal spreading pattern going yet. Needs more cowbell!

On the other hand and not to seem to only gripe, I have had some nice windfalls!

Most recently I managed to get invited onto the CBC show to do some local color run after this great doc, Graphic Chicken Soup for the Graphic Soul, by David Gutnick. Thanks to David and Maria Turner, my boss at carte blache both for putting my name in for that. I’m on with an old acquaintance, Simon Bossé, in a piece called Growing up graphic. Our parents get all the blame.

Making it a more entertaining experience than planned I got nailed by the flu about 6 hours before the interview, vomiting all over the place very suddenly and sending my poor Ange into a cleaning frenzy. Managed to clear out the pipes and get it together to do it all over the phone, thanks to some nice editing, I even sound totally coherent.

—–

So that’s me for the year probably. Couple more retailers on board and some new distribution channels about to come online for RevolveЯ. I’m running behind on RevolveЯ Two right now due to last minute editorial decisions on my part, and the feeling like the slow moving soft launch is progressing well, but has not reached the sweet spot for the next Minimum Effective Dose. The next book dropping and it’s associated press releases, to help crank the series forward. Taking the time to color a story and add another to make it all that much cooler, less ignorable, and put it out in January instead of this month as I had planned originally.

Keep your eyes open for a kickstarter project from me and Mark Sable too in the new year.
As work on Dream Life book one gets done i’ll be jumping directly onto a story we have planned.

Happy Holiday and a grand old new year all!

Revolution on the Planet of the Apes on Hype Space.

This is old, but i just found it. This is Ty Templeton, artist writer and editor extraordinaire, and our boss for Revolution on the Planet of the Apes.

He appeared on Space to hype the books when they came out, and they used a lot of my art from #1 for this. The publisher has been having second thoughts about doing a collection, if your someone who would like to see the Revolution on the Planet of the Apes books collected, like i would, write Mr. Comics and tell them about it for me please?

Rantz on ISR on about CBT

Been catching up on my comics pods.

Listening to lots of stuff while i fling ink madly at this.

Finally got to my friends at Indy Spinner Rack! Done some editing for their show in the past and got to press the flesh in NY a few weeks back. Really enjoyed sitting with them at the Con, and all the rest. didn’t have enough time to hang out, i Will be back.

Wish I’d bloody gone with them to Hero Con as almost planed! darrrr! That would have been so much better than staying at home and breaking up with my girlfriend. I am such a dummy sometimes, it amazes me.

In episode #134 Charlito and Mr. Phil talked with our editor and facilitator for the massive Comic Book Tattoo. Mr Rantz Hoseley.

I had to blush, I had not heard the ‘reasoning’ for our story being chosen to preview on MySpace before. And I’m not above sharing it with you here.

Clip of Rantz embarrassing me along with many others in the book is here bellow, and you can catch the whole conversation on the ISR site here.

 


Hear he’s back at the just regular insanity of getting Displaced Persons wrapped up! Hope he’s getting a bit more sleep now after the wild success at the SDCC!

Last week we were also told the book was the #2 bestseller on Buy.com, #15 on Amazon’s graphic novel bestseller list & #35 on Bookscan’s!

Glee.

 

Gett your Tattoo here.


Cheers!

Therefore Repent & the NYCC

Hey all, some nice stuff for the clip pile here; stumbled across this a bit late, Comic News Insider featured the book on their weekly top three list when it came out in January. This is a clip from Episode 125 – Tue, 29 January 2008!

I’m Going to be at the upcoming New York Comic Con – April 18-20, 2008!

I’ll be joining my pod cast collaborators Charlito and Mr. Phill at the ISR table, and doing an hour or so of sketches and signings at the Image table too.

Also i’ve confirmed with Vito, I’m booked to do a singing for Therefore Repent! on the 21st the Monday after the con with my co-creator on Sea of Red, Rick Remender (Fear Agent) and Tony Moore (Walking Dead) @ Jim Hanley’s Universe downtown store in New York City [map]! If your in town i hope you can make it out to the store.

Also really look forward to meeting the guys, Tony did some awesome work on my covers for Sea of Red, I’ve worked with both of them but i haven’t met either of them in the flesh so it’s going to be cool to actually encounter the real people! Hope it goes well :)

Time TBA

Work in paper and waves

Been trying to get stuff ready for Expozine, but ended up being up late working on mixing down ISR #99, messed up my plans for today. Got to get on it. Got some books to print and was thinking buttons….

Right, so in case you missed it the big Zine fest, the monster of Indy Montreal, EXPOZINE is coming up. Two days this year, by popular demand. Being run by da’ man, Billy Mavreas.

We has high hopes.

Going to go in a double capacity, along with my new Graphic Novel, I’ll be taking a list of people I want to put a mic in front of for a quick 5 questions routine to post on Sequential and maybe include in a podcast or two to come.

I will be there with Therefore Repent! of course, and think I’m going to plan for a signing shortly after Expozine, want to book it so i can make fliers for the show to have at EXPO. So come to the show and get your hands on a copy of a book people keep telling me they can’t seem to put down.

In other TR news, as well as still being available for a steeply discounted pre-order on Amazon, the IDW edition is listed in this months Previews! Will try to find out the order code asap!

You can still order the book now from NMK, but soon it will be hitting the comic shops all over – January 15 2008 is the date!

I have to take some time to spread the word on that in the next few days. But please, anyone reading this feeling like pitching in, it will be much appreciated! :) Bug your comic shop clerk to check it out.

And don’t forget, there’s the massive 60pg peek at the book here to have a look at, and you can win a free copy too!

In other news; Keep and ear out for a Radio spot i did this weekend for Therefore Repent! during Indie Spinner Rack Issue #99, with help from Cass and Bernie Mireault! Going to post it here probably in a few days too. Just a last min swing at the thing for ISR #99. Will be taking some time to refine it and maybe do some others as well in the next while so i can send it out to a few other shows too.

And about the references to ISR #99, the show is a fun comix podcast I’ve been listening to for a while, and recently offered to pitch in and edit a few episodes for while tec and host Charlito is busy with an off Broadway play! Doing it for fun, love working in sound. But it also gives me a great excuse to do some reporting on Expozine and of course i get to promote my baby too, nice deal all round for me i have to say. ~B-) sweet. completed the first of my episodes this morning, it will go up Wednesday here.

About

The name comes from the song. CH ZERO was first called Signal to Noise. But after a while I decided to change that and CH0 was born. Though there are some commonalities, It has nothing directly to do with this channel zero, or this one, though both are cool ;). For 7 years on CIUT 89.5 fm, I produced and co-hosted the show. We had a series of in-house troupes doing radio plays, spoken word performances, and sketch comedy. I played with sampling on my old mac LC [it still works!], and mixed live using 2 turntables, 2 tape decks, & 2 CD players running material taken randomly from the library or pre-recorded to tape. It was a fun show, I enjoyed my time on it! But like many things that become routine, after 7 yrs I decided it was time for a change. Recently the bug to play DJ nipps at me, and comes POD CASTING. Well damn. That’s just about right. And so CH ZERO is reborn….
