Huh is it just me or did you make a font out of your handwriting recently? Was that a time-saving measure? Also, it's beautiful and you should consider selling it on Creative Market or something.

I did! I’ve been finding it hard to keep my hand lettering consistent while drawing Back, so I gave a font another shot (using yourfonts.com; I had tried making one long ago, but my lettering is much better now and the font looks far superior to my old one). And yes, it does save a huge amount of time. I wish I had tried it (again) long ago.

I don’t think I will ever make it public, though. My lettering is something unique to my comics which I’ve spent years developing and I don’t really like the idea of other people using it.

Hello! I was just wondering what brushes you used for your linework. Are they special ones that you made or just ones in Manga Studio? Also you are cool and I love your art thank you bye

Most of my lines are just a standard round brush with the thickness and pressure sensitivity tweaked until it feels good to me. Nothing special! 

Not at all! I intend to continue posting my comics on my website free for everyone to see. Backers at a certain level will get to see them a little early, and maybe see some in-progress works and behind-the-scenes material, but I have no plans to put the comics behind a paywall or anything.
In fact, the idea behind Patreon is that if it brings in enough income, I’ll be able to turn down other less-fun jobs and focus more on my own work. That means even more comics for everyone to enjoy.

Hello everyone! I have finally joined every other webcartoonist and set up a Patreon campaign in hopes of increasing my comics output. If you’re not familiar with Patreon, it’s a way to help support the people who make things you enjoy by pledging a small monthly amount (check out the in-depth FAQ here).
If you enjoy my work, I hope you’ll consider becoming a patron so that I’ll be able to keep making more of it. Thank you!

My uncle works for Nintendo and told me that Sippus and Beartato are half-brothers, is that true?

No comment.

Actually I do want to comment and make sure everyone knows that KC is the one doing the character designs for Back. His sketches are great and I’m just trying to them justice.
