The Bear Minimum is creating a webcomic about a bear vs life
101
patrons
$118
per Full comic strip

I am opening this Patreon page in the hopes that a few of my friends & followers will support my comic making ʕ•͡ᴥ•ʔ

The Bear Minimum is my first long running project, having been started in 2016 as a means of personal expression.
Since then the response has been overwhelming! I have received so much thoughtful, positive and inspiring feedback.
I am however in a tenuous situation; I am the stereotypical starving artist. Making as many paid works as I can, but still unable to live off that income. Pursuing side projects like my comic to stay engaged and interested in art.

It is hard to know how to ask for help when in the past you have stood stoically on your own. Last year several generous people made some donations simply because they liked my comic. This was an overwhelming kindness right before Christmas & honestly made my month.


I only have one patron tier at $1+ since I only have a few rewards to give currently. I may find new things to offer as I update my computer & improve my living situation (which is something I am striving for currently).

Every pledge is per full comic posted
"Full" means a minimum of 2 to 5 panels.
I generally make four comics a month so if you pledge $1 you'll be donating $4 a month. However if I am too busy & make no comics you won't be charged at all! I really like this system for that reason!
You also have the option of only supporting one 'creation' a month if you can only donate $1 a month. Just look for the option when you become my patron! 

If you get enjoyment out of seeing my comics & you can spare a few dollars a month please consider becoming my patron! If even a fraction of my followers donated $1 a month my living conditions would improve a lot.
For those of you who prefer one time donations to a subscription model that option is also available if you Click here!

For everyone else who cannot donate, please know that I love hearing from you in comments. Shares & re-tweets are always vastly appreciated.

The comic will always be posted to:
Tumblr: Bearlyfunctioning.tumblr.com
Facebookhttps://www.facebook.com/TheBearMinimumComic/
Twitterhttps://twitter.com/BearHybrid (Mix of personal & comic uploads)

Please note that The Bear Minimum is rated Teen (PG 13) for strong language, cartoon violence, serious themes, implied lewdness & stupidity
