This month’s wallpaper is up for all $2+ Patreon supporters! This year’s wallpaper images will focus on characters that don’t usually get the main focus, starting with Kate from Messenger. Main characters will make appearances, of course, but there’s going to be a lot more variety!
This month’s Patreon wallpaper is now available for all $2+ patrons! It features the Chios playing in a pile of fall leaves.
I’ve also been posting bits of work to Patreon using their Lens feature – it’s a neat way to get a peek at what I’m working on (usually as I’m working on it!) using their app. You have to check in often, though, since the posts disappear after a day.
In addition to adding Flattr support to our comics, we’re also pleased to announce something new – The Chio Club!
The Chio Club is a new way to support Messenger, Follower, and our other creative projects through a monthly subscription membership. You’ll get early access to comics and other works in progress, discounted commissions, and membership to our private supporters-only Discord group. You can pick and choose what kinds of rewards you’d like and “pledge” the amount of your choice in monthly or yearly increments.
Yes, this news does come on the heels of Patreon’s new fee changes. We polled our existing patron base and got mixed feedback – some people didn’t mind the change, and some were ready to move on from Patreon – so rather than make a drastic change all at once we’ve decided to simply offer more ways to support us, so you can still get access to the same rewards at the same price, just using a different method.
The Chio Club is still a bit of a work in progress, and we are planning to offer more rewards in time, so keep an eye on our shiny new Support page or subscribe to our newsletter to keep up with the latest!
