Space Pawdyssey was born out of my desire to make people smile while at the same time growing my own skills as an illustrator.  After years of putting my hobby on the back burner for various reasons, I finally decided enough was enough. I wanted to start doing what I loved to do so many years ago. I wanted to get back to drawing.

Space Pawdyssey is more than just an artistic outlet for me.  It's also very much a means of working out the personal struggles I've dealt with over the years.  Each character struggles with their own ideas of happiness and finding a purpose in life just as I've struggled with those same challenges.

Felix aspires to be more than what he is.  He also suffers from hero worship and a desire to be recognized by those he respects.  Lex isn't satisfied with where he is in life and often fails to appreciate what he has.  Connor is seen as a leader and hero to many but worries that he cannot possibly live up to the expectations of others.

Each of these characters embodies worries I've had as I've grown and worries I still fight with today. I hope to breath life into these characters as they bumble their way through space -- just as we sometimes bumble our way through our day-to-day struggling to find our own happiness.

Space Pawdyssey is intended to be a weekly comic series released on a Friday schedule or as close to it as real life will manage.  I will often stream my work on Picarto - http://picarto.tv/frostclaw - for those interested in seeing how I work. I'll also be doing various fan art from time to time.

Your support will help me focus more of my time and energy on this strip, its website and the marketing and structure around it -- be it support through Patreon contributions or simply by following the characters' stories and passing it along. It will also help with printing costs for upcoming print comics and with the hosting and updating of the website and related materials.

I'm not seeking a massive fan base.  I just want to improve my skills and evoke some emotion, be it laughter or at times sadness -- from my readers.  I hope to create characters people can connect with in some way.

You can follow along at http://spacepawdyssey.com or follow the comic on tumblr at http://spacepawdyssey.tumblr.com. New updates will be published twice a week!

At this goal level, I hope to be able to increase the amount of time I put into creating the comic and hope to increase the frequency of the publication. It will also do a great deal to help with the publication of the Space Pawdyssey #1 which I hope will go to printers at the end of the year.
