The Awkward Yeti is a comic series by cartoonist Nick Seluk started in 2012. The series originally featured an awkward blue yeti named Lars, but he was quickly overshadowed by the popular Heart and Brain characters.

Since then, Heart and Brain have been featured in a New York Times Bestselling book series of the same name, as well as a whole bunch of viral comics. You can find them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (and occasionally, my website). 

In the Fall of 2018 I also released a children's book called the Sun is Kind of a Big Deal, produced by Scholastic. Many of your kids probably saw it at their book fair.

I originally launched this patreon page a few years ago to help offset some of my costs like equipment, hosting fees, and office space. It really helped me get on my feet as I started doing this as a full time job. After the success of my game OrganATTACK on Kickstarter, I decided to shut down the page because I was able to afford my expenses better.

One of my biggest dreams with this comic series was to animate it. From the very beginning, everything I wrote was character-centric, and I always imagined them moving in my head. There was so much more I wished I could do to show just how funny Lars was, how dynamic Heart is, or how just the right pause can make all the difference in a joke. 

After about two years of struggling to find a partner in animation, I've decided to just go for it. To make SOMETHING, regardless of whether it is profitable. Something for me and for the true fans to enjoy. This relaunch of my Patreon page is to do just that: save enough money each month to begin creating animated shorts! The more we raise, the more animations we make. Who's with me?
