THE GLOAMING Kickstarter has surpassed the $5,000 mark! I'm unaccustomed to success, so allow me this moment to relish it. THANK YOU ALL! (There's 19 days left to pre-order yourself a copy!)

I am dumbfounded by the success of THE GLOAMING Kickstarter. I simply did not expect to have the project funded so quickly!
I dug through my papers and found this old pencil for an unfinished drawing. I've decided complete the drawing and offer it as a signed print (final dimensions yet to be determined) as a STRETCH GOAL for the Kickstarter campaign if it reaches $5,000!
(I'm still not 100% familiar with how Kickstarter works, but I believe you can upgrade your pledge to get the print. If you have trouble, I'll contact the Kickstarter people.)

Here's the links!

So, I have something of a major announcement to make.
The COCHLEA & EUSTACHIA webcomic has now moved to a new location. I am in the process of shutting down all online archives of the comic and consolidating them at the Tabulit Comics Site ( tabulitcomics.com ).
I am making this move because posting my comics online for free and getting income from advertising or merchandising is not a realistic prospect. On many of the mirror sites I feel like I am simply providing free content for parasites who collect advertising revenue off my generated traffic. I think many other cartoonists who’ve showcased their work online are coming to a similar conclusion.
Over the years I’ve built up fairly decent-sized following of readers, many of whom have made insightful and witty comments; not to mention the amazing people who sent in unsolicited fan art, all of which I cherish. In spite of this, I feel like I’ve become an “enabler” of people who’ve become accustomed to getting free stuff online at the expense of the creators’ time and effort.
I hope that doesn’t sound accusatory. I myself enjoy all sorts of free online content, but whenever possible, I support creators as much as is within my means. I am deeply, deeply grateful for my own Patreons supporters. However, the number of paying patrons is less than 0.03% of my regular readers. I would very much like to change this.
So, for those who wish to read more of the current COCHLEA & EUSTACHIA comic, you have 3 options:
1 - Wait until the current storyline is finished and is printed in graphic novel format. This might take another 2 or 3 years, so patience is helpful.
2 - Join up and subscribe to Tabulit. ( https://www.tabulitcomics.com/cochlea-eustachia ) The subscription fee is $6.99. Not only will you be supporting me and my own weird creations, but you’ll be helping to support a host of many other alternative cartoonists, all producing quality work. Tabulit is a young, ambitious company, still in its beginning stages, but bound to grow. I predict that many online cartoonists will start joining sites like this in future days.
3 - For those who don’t want to pay the Tabulit fee, you can always become a Patreon supporter. ( https://www.patreon.com/hansrickheit ) A donation of just 25¢ per comics update is the minimum contribution to continue seeing new episodes of C&E as they are completed. (A regular donation of $2.50 will get you genuine pencil sketches mailed to you monthly!)
As a positive note, by subscribing or becoming a patron, you will definitely help me to spend more time drawing comics, increasing my output and less time toiling away at my shitty day-job.
As always, I am grateful for your attention. Future updates will be announced soon. I sincerely hope you’ll be there to receive them!

ORIGINAL ART BLOWOUT SALE!
As you probably know, I lost my job last month. I am currently trying to raise $$ to buy a used car so I can find work. (Hitchhiking in New England in subzero weather sucks)
For the rest of this month, I am offering all remaining pages of original art for THE SQUIRREL MACHINE for a flat price of $200 each. You can order via PAYPAL (do not use the PayPal button on the linked page!) using my e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, the reason I have been able to draw my weird comics for so long is through the kind help of my many readers. I am eternally grateful to you all!
