Hi Second Quest backers! I wanted to let you know about some new stuff I'm doing solo-style. If you didn't hear, I relaunched and it's chock full of these hasty comics I've been doing in my sketchbook for the past couple months. My hasty comics are the complete opposite from Second Quest, which was a very thought-through, painstakingly constructed work. They're fast, free-associative, and I'm writing them myself – a huge creative leap for me. I draw 3-4 per week, and have no plans to stop doing them ever. So I hope you'll follow along and see where the improvisation leads.

Today I'm opening a Patreon so people who like my work can support these new ventures. Patreon is a crowdfunding platform like Kickstarter, but a lot more chill. For one thing, it's subscription-based. Sign up to send me $3 per month (or however much you want) and enjoy the confident, masterly feeling that comes with being a patron of the arts.

Being my patron also means you can see the patrons blog, where I'm posting unreleased comics early, works-in-progress, and other random stuff from my sketchbook. I'll also share my process, so if you like seeing how the sausage is made, this could be good for you!

So if you're up for a laugh, please check out my hasty comics at, then head over to my Patreon and subscribe!

Thanks for your consideration.

- David
