An experiment with the mail.

So I want to do a bit of an experiment with my Patreon page, and it involves the mail.

See, ever since I began working online I've always had limitations concerning the mail. Since I live in Colombia, South America, I have never been able to ship things to customers like original art pieces or anything like that. The reasons for this involve price, time and even trust - meaning I don't know if it would be too expensive, how long it would take and if it would even get there.

But I started this thing in 2004, and here we are almost eleven years later. I think it's about time we gave it a try and see what happens.

So this week I'll be producing two images: a pencil sketch and a watercolor image. On Monday, I will be raffling both these images among my Patreons. The pencil sketch will be raffled among all the Patreons, regardless of their level. And the watercolor image will be raffled to those who are at or above the $5 level.

Once I have defined who has won the images, I'll go to the post office and send the images. The idea of this experiment is for me to find out how much it would cost, then how long it will take for the images to get there and finally what state the arrive in - if they arrive at all.

If the experiment proves that shipping stuff to different parts of the world is viable, then I'll be able to start offering my Patreons that sort of thing on a more regular basis, sell stuff like signed prints or perhaps even consider selling original artpieces.

But it all depends on how this experiment goes.

So yeah, just letting you all know this is going to happen. If you're interested in helping support my work through Patreon, here's a link! http://www.patreon.com/user?u=405151

Good hunting;

NOTE 1: Sending stuff through the mail might seem like something extremely normal to most of you, and you're probably wondering what the big deal is. But trust me, third-world-mail is not the same thing as mail in the rest of the world.

NOTE 2: If you get what the image is referencing, then well... what can I say? How awesome was Tom Petty in that movie, huh?

NOTE 3: Yeah... not very. But still, he was IN IT.

NOTE 4: He totally looked like Iggy Pop, too.

Comic: "Monster Hunters"

This week's comic has a pretty intense revelation, and on the technical side it was made a bit different from the others. Check out more about it on the website. 
http://www.theministryofabnormality.com/?p=1139

The scanned pencils and watercolors are also available to see on the Patreon page!
https://www.patreon.com/user?u=405151
Click the image to view a larger version. Today's comic is very important to me, and not just because Raven has made a very significant revelation (what do you all think of that, huh?). It's also because it marks the beginning of something of an experiment. Of sorts. Kind of.

Comic: "Truth or Dare"

In today's comic, we face a dilemma. 
Do we tell the truth and face possibly angry consequences?
Or do we (sort of tell) a lie and deal with it later?

Help us decide by voting on the website! http://www.theministryofabnormality.com/?p=1107

And if you'd like to support the webcomic, check out our Patreon! This week we'll have a video and a guide to reading the runes in the comic! https://www.patreon.com/user?u=405151

In today's comic, Lizzie helps her opponent toughen up a bit.

There isn’t much more to say this week, except that there’s a larger version of the comic and the sketches for this page over at the Patreon, here: http://www.patreon.com/user?u=405151

The mysterious Commander attacks Lizzie, lunging towards her with his scissors open. As Lizzie instinctively raises her arms to defend herself and the Commander continues his attack, trying to cut at the arms – a strategy he has clearly used many times before. Cut the opponent's arms so they ...

ARTBARF! - A warmup sketch – Obi Wan Kenobi

There’s no better way to start the day than warming up with a sketch. In this case, I took the opportunity to start exploring the Star Wars character Obi Wan Kenobi, for what will eventually become a much larger and more detailed design for a friend’s tattoo. Personally, I’m more of a Sith kind of guy, but I’ll always have love for the best swordsman in the galaxy.

Now, let’s get to work.

COMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Updates are Friday now.

Yup, starting this week and until further notice, the webcomic will be updating on Fridays. I hope this doesn’t bother anybody.

Why, you ask? Well, no big reason, really. It’s just that when you work alone, and your office is located in your own home, you have to experiment a bit to see if you can hit that spot of ideal productivity. And I’ve been thinking that maybe Friday will work better for me in that regard.

And that’s it. Sorry it’s not a fun announcement.

So uh… guess what? I accidentally spilled some olive brine on the kitchen floor, and half-assedly moped it up so that it still probably smelled like olives. Next thing I know, the cats are all rolling around and rubbing themselves against the floor! It was really funny.

I… uh… I guess you had to be there. And no, I didn’t take any photos. Sorry.

So yeah. Comic now updates on Fridays. I’m out.

Good hunting;
O

Raven uncovers something very important - but what does it mean? http://www.theministryofabnormality.com/?p=1093

Click image for a larger version. There is no decision to be made this week, but I would like to know (out of curiosity) what you all think the symbol on The Mysterious Commander's forehead might mean. For now, I'm way too tired to write anything else. So I'm going to go get some sleep and I ...

Click image for a larger version. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to add a decision for everybody to make with today's comic, and I eventually just had to admit that sometimes, there just won't be anything to vote on. In this case, I needed the page to properly introduce the ...

Comic: "Sister"

In today's comic, Lizzie decide's she's got all the information she needs and "bursts" into action. The group now has to decide who and in they will help her out, or if they'll just let her handle it alone.

Click image for a larger version. Raven's and her sister Lizzie had a plan. It involved Lizzie getting captured by the Kobolds to see if she could gather information about who leads them, and more importantly, who might have given them the ability to breathe fire.
