Greek Myth Comixis creating comics of the Greek Myths and Greek and Roman literature

Well now, you really shouldn't have! But seeing as you have, you’ll get sneak peeks of comix, see sketches before they're inked, PDFs of finished comix, behind-the-scenes info on projects, as well this special key to my lockbox (er, Dropbox) which contains my PDF downloads of comics and books and other fun teaching and myth stuff that will get updated as things get made! (Just for you though - no sharing!)
Let me explain: I'm a teacher of Classical Civilisation, and sometimes my students find it difficult to understand or remember certain features of Classical literature or a particularly convoluted myth, so I started drawing it out for them. And, it kind of spiralled from there, with a whole comic-book revision guide of the Odyssey (books 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 and 12 - further chapters are currently under production), a pretty memorable few days when the 'Deaths in the Iliad' infographic went viral, and over a hundred comics that are viewed hundreds of times a day and used in classrooms in schools and universities around the world.
While I sell the odd PDF download here and there, and hawk my wares at the Classical Conference now and then, I've been doing this as a labour of love (I have a pretty demanding full-time job), and that's been fine for the time being. But, now, with the volume of comics meaning I need to pay for hosting space, and my old copy of Photoshop giving up the ghost against constant OS updates and forcing me to join the ranks of Adobe's subscribers, it's become rather more expensive to run. I'd like to be able to keep the whole archive free in the long term, as it was originally designed to be, for students and lovers of mythology to use.
This is where you come in: if you've used my comics in class or otherwise, enjoy them, want more, please consider becoming a patron. In return, you'll have my gratitude and admiration, and also some free stuff like extra comics, behind-the-scenes and development photos, and videos on how to make your own comics, based on my popular workshops. You'll also get to pick what I draw next, make suggestions for future comics, and, depending on your level of patronage, get free versions of my paid downloads. Does that sound ok?
