Some of you already know me, but I’m Monica Marier (I’m the one in the space-suit above). I’ve been an artist and writer for Tangent Artists Webcomics since 2006, putting quality FREE stories online for 3 different comic series: CRIT!, Skeleton Crew, and Donuts for Looking. I’m also a published author with Hunt Press with my two series: The Linus Saga and Madame Bluestocking’s Pennyhorrid.
My husband currently has to work two jobs, because between our kids and my chronic health problems, I have trouble contributing to our family’s income. These days I’ve been able supplement what I can with art commissions and my novels and that little bit has been able to help keep food on the table, a roof over our heads, and clothes in the closets.
Now, I’m losing my only means to support my family. This January, my computer died beyond all repair. Right now I’m using my friend’s old laptop and that too is starting to crack at the hinges and malfunction. Very shortly, I will have no means to write books or make comics.
I need your help.
With your donation to help me buy a new computer and art software I will be able to earn money for my family and continue to provide you FREE COMICS online for years to come.
What will the money go to? I need $3.5k to purchase the following:
1. 1 laptop computer with a good graphics card and processor so it can run art software— $1,700-$2,200
2. A subscription to Adobe Photoshop to use for my art— $600
3. A copy of word for my manuscripts —$30
4. Anti-viral software (to protect this investment) —$30
5. Extended warranty on the Computer—?
5. GoFundMe’s 5% cut of all donations.
6. Shipping for all rewards. —?
Any amount you can give is greatly appreciated by me, my family and my readers, even if it’s simply spreading the word. An investment in this fundraiser is an investment in my career as an artist and writer, which continues to grow with every passing year. With your help, I can keep my career alive and continue to create my worlds to delight you.
