I've had a couple of inquiries recently ...
When you sign up at Patreon and become a Patron of UP on the HiLL the fact that you have done so remains private. Your name does not appear publicly on a list anywhere and I don't announce who my Patrons are. If you want to let others know you're a Patron and encourage others to do so you are more than welcome, but I keep your name private unless you tell me otherwise.
2. Purchasing original art
You cannot purchase any original strip art because I "draw" the strip digitally. I do draw many of the elements of the strip on paper, but they get scanned into my Mac where I do the majority of the work with the aid of Photoshop and an IntuosPro drawing tablet. I do offer high quality prints of the strips for $20 each.
Always happy to answer questions.
