Gene Gonzales is Creating Art and Comics on Patreon!

On January 30th I launched a Patreon page. If you are not familiar with Patreon, it is a subscription based way for people to support the endeavors of other people. Basically it is a way to become a "Patron of the Arts". And my art in particular. :)

I created the video seen above to explain why I am now on Patreon and what I hope to accomplish. If you have enjoyed what I do on this blog and you enjoy my art,  I ask that you check out what I am doing on Patreon. And if you are interested in supporting me there, you will see a number of reward tiers from which to choose. From basic info to art commissions, I tried to make them appealing.

If you are not interested in supporting me on Patreon, no worries. Really. My work will still be showcased here about as frequently as I have been doing lately. And every so often I might give you a peek at what the Patrons are seeing on Patreon as a way to try to entice you again. :)

The link is above, if you have a moment take a look. And if you have any questions about it just shoot me an email or ask in the comments below.

Thank you for all your kind words and support through the years!

Wildfire - Legion of Super-Heroes

Another Legion commission! I can't get enough of them! Today is Wildfire! I thought Wildfire was one of the coolest looking characters when I first saw him in Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes 205. He didn't do much but that visor was cool. It wasn't until I got the elusive issue 201 and the even more elusive first appearance in issue 195 (you have no idea how difficult it was to find that comic back then) that I got to see him in action. Good times!

And if you are interested, I also recorded the inking process and uploaded it to my YouTube channel. Click on over for the better resolution.
