This journal will be a bit long. But it will cover a lot stuff I need to.
I finally have a new Paypal account now I can work on internet again. Now I'm officially an entrepreneur. I went over all the bureaucracy papers, now I pay all taxes and everything. The bad luck turned to be good, now I'm doing the right thing! BUT this time I will not risk my account again, I will not have a store nor sell stuff directly through it.
The idea is to use Patreon, but I don't want to sell anything there either, I'm going to bet on public support alone. I think it's fair and get rid of any headaches about the ooohhh so dramatic piracy problem.
But first I'd like to know: Would you feel harmed if I publish for FREE the comics you once paid to see? I don't want to give the impression I'm throwing away your hard earned money. Rest assure that each comic you bought, gave me structure to make the next comic and so on.
Who might understand this are the art commissioners. They pay the artists, put time and effort on creating the ideas and the art goes for free on internet for everybody happiness. If not for commissioners we wouldn't see half of the cool art we see on internet. Thanks to commissioners artist get exposture and then more potential commissioners.
Instead of one guy giving a huge amount of money to support an artist, why not everybody giving a little to a common goal?
I maybe it's me just being naive, but I believe art, entertainment and internet is evolving to a new kind of economy. I can feel the power of it and I think it's awesome!
I think there are some little pieces of wisdom here and the discussion that this journal may provide will be even better. I'm forward for every opinion on this topic and make the best of it.
PS: My Offbeatr situation is explained in this at my webcomic site: slimythief.com/offbeatr-argh/
For the lols, I even got a comment from one of the Offbeatr staff. I didn't contacted them, but they must track the sites that give them most traffic... I feel important now
