It was fun to hear about this technique. I like the use of technology in the design and drafting the art.

Official Post from Liz and Jason Behnke: We think reading and writing is really important. That's why we create Tales of Piecora. We want to tell a good story that's our own, we want to illustrate that story with beautiful drawings and paintings, but really it's about the need to encourage reading and comprehension. That's it, right there,

What a wonderful post about Tales of Piecora. Thank you so much for sharing this!
 
I've been Geeking out over Tales of Piecora recently. It's a fantasy adventure story with a new chapter published every month. Each chapter includes beautiful portraits and scenes illustrated by Jason Behnke, a fine artist, who's portfolio reminds me of my old favorite artist, Michael Whelan.
The weird, cool and terrible thing is that it has been published exclusively through Patreon.
Weird because I've never thought to look to Patreon for content. I use it to throw money at the creators I already love from other platforms.
Cool because it is a very direct connection between Liz and Jason as creators and me as a fan. They have communicated directly with me many times and my monthly contribution really feels more like patronage than a purchase price.
Terrible because this project just has not reached very many people yet. We are six months in to this adventure and while the characters have developed well, the Patreon following has not. I am both honored and appalled that the audience of this quality 236 page story with a dozen amazing works of art is only about 13 patrons.
So, this is my attempt at helping to advertise this thing I love.

Check out some Art:

Read the first six pages of Chapter One for free:
https://www.patreon.com/posts/six-pager-teaser-4117503

If it catches your interest, I'd recommend joining me as a patron for $5. You get access to all the past chapters and you can end your patronage anytime if $5/monthly chapter doesn't work for you.

Alternatively, If you like nice things but hate subscriptions. For $15 you can download the first 6 chapters of Lair of the Omen Storm; the first tale in Tales of Piecora, which have been compiled into a single .pdf (236 pages).

If anyone checks it out I'd be interested in hearing your opinion. If you find that you regret any money you may put into this because of my recommendation I'd like to buy you Lunch/Brunch.
