Just in case you didn't know I have created a Patreon page. After over 7 years of posts here and on my main website gene gonzales.com, I thought Patreon would be a good fit. I have been on Patreon for almost a year and it's been a good experience. Over there I post art and process videos for my patrons. And from time to time I post for the general public. And we are building a nice little community. Come over and check it out. :)

Shameless plug this morning but it's also a great example of why I am on Patreon now. Creating Perils on Planet X took over a dozen years. And the simple reason is both of us, writer Chris Mills and I have other responsibilities in order to pay the bills. But we never let POPX die. And now it is done and ready to read! In Chris' words:
All three issues of PERILS ON PLANET X by Yours Truly and Gene Gonzales, with colors by Ian Sokoliwski, are available to purchase NOW!
They are only available by mail order from IndyPlanet. This is is the best way to support us and the book, as the profits go directly to Gene and myself. Each issue is 32 full-color pages, printed on high-quality, heavy paper stock. (You can also purchase digital downloads, if you prefer.)
Sales of these issues will help Gene and I determine whether there's enough demand for Volume 2: "Agent of Empyr," so if you'd like to see further PERILS ON PLANET X adventures, be sure to order your copies soon.
I hope you will join us on Planet X!

PERILS ON PLANET X © CHRISTOPHER MILLS AND GENE GONZALES
Anyone who has followed me on this blog knows about PERILS ON PLANET X. If you don't, POPX is a series by writer Christopher Mills and myself. It is a swashbuckling sci-fi adventure done in the grand tradition of Flash Gordon and John Carter. It will be available through print on demand very very soon. And to celebrate, I have created a desktop wallpaper of the first issues wraparound cover. You can download it for free at my Patreon page: www.Patreon.com/GeneGonzales
There are more details on that page as well as the download. I hope you enjoy the wallpaper and I hope you will give our series a shot.

As an early Valentines present I am sharing this piece with everyone. If you enjoy it I hope you will share it with others. This was done on my iPad Pro in Procreate.
This is one example of the process videos I share, and make downloadable, on Patreon. If you would like to see more please visit my Patreon page take a look at the different patron tiers on the page and join us.
Even if you don't pick a tier with process videos, you can still see new artwork almost everyday from me and help towards the goal of me posting one of my own comic creations.

On January 30th I launched a Patreon page. If you are not familiar with Patreon, it is a subscription based way for people to support the endeavors of other people. Basically it is a way to become a "Patron of the Arts". And my art in particular. :)

I created the video seen above to explain why I am now on Patreon and what I hope to accomplish. If you have enjoyed what I do on this blog and you enjoy my art, I ask that you check out what I am doing on Patreon. And if you are interested in supporting me there, you will see a number of reward tiers from which to choose. From basic info to art commissions, I tried to make them appealing.
If you are not interested in supporting me on Patreon, no worries. Really. My work will still be showcased here about as frequently as I have been doing lately. And every so often I might give you a peek at what the Patrons are seeing on Patreon as a way to try to entice you again. :)
The link is above, if you have a moment take a look. And if you have any questions about it just shoot me an email or ask in the comments below.
Thank you for all your kind words and support through the years!
