First let me begin with saying that I appreciate everyone who has bought the Bruno books and mug, it has been a tremendous help.
You all know that my main goal in creating Bruno is to make a strip I love, but as well I have been making the attempt of having the strip bring in a modest revenue.
So I have several ideas, which I ask you to read for the sake of the strip, even if you don't chose to do any.
So, for those who have not yet bought the books (or mug), I ask that you do if you can. In a
way it's like a subscription fee (though my intention is to never charge a
subscription fee, or to MAKE anyone pay anything). But if every eight months you bought a book when it comes out (they run in eight month cycles), for your $12.00 you could receive
a full-color-cover book of the strips (a book like this would cost at least that in stores) plus you'd get the satisfaction knowing that you were encouraging me to continue this madness which brings you pleasure.
And the books, if you don't want them, give them to friends or family who are
not on-line, are are not hooked on Bruno. Or even give them to your public
library, tell them it's a hybrid of literature and illustration. Tell them to
put it in the humor section. They just might.
Plus, who couldn't use another mug to put right next to their Far Side "school for the gifted" mug?
Another idea is art commisions. paintings, drawings of bruno, re-draws of strips (I don't
part with "original" originals), whatever you can think of.
And if you have other proposals, I definately have open ears.
