You are now an official Patron of the Arts -- thank you! 
Every reward here, no matter what amount, is credit toward some item on the WayLay store.  In other words, in one year, that's $12 toward a comic, book, print, pin, rough drawing, etc. When you'd like to get some good thing, please email me at lay (at)

If you provide a snail mail address, I'll send official thanks on a postcard.

About Carol Lay

Carol Lay here. I have drawn comics and cartoons for a living most of my adult life; my work has appeared in a tiny newspaper on Gibraltar and in better known publications such as The Wall Street Journal and The New Yorker. Because traditional publishing venues are fading away or dying, sites like Patreon can help me and other cartoonists to keep doing what we love. Any contribution will go a long way toward helping me make more comics, and I will do my best to keep your eyeballs happy.

Lay Lines! Newly colored vintage strips and new Murderville stories are now appearing on GoComics and I hope you keep coming back for more.

$411 of $500 per month
I'm fortunate to have a roof over my head and a paid-off old car in the garage.  Utilities, taxes, insurance, upkeep and more add up to a monthly nut that varies, but let's call it 500 clams.  Any contribution at this level will go to paying off un-fun stuff like that. A gal needs electricity to create and upload those comics!
