Alright everyone,

So this is the first month in which I received my payments on time (as would be expected) which for a long while gave me hope that Patreon may have finally worked itself out and I had finally stopped messing it all up.

However, as we near the last 3rd of the month, I found out some facts that are making me feel a little uneasy.

1) Patreon is now requiring our tax and social security info so they can start reporting our earnings to the government.

-Beyond the issue of being unsure about sharing such information, this also raises a new issue when it comes to taxes. We are required to pay a certain percentage of our earnings that are reported to the government. This is normally understood or even good, given that in the normal work setting that money is automatically taken out of our paychecks by an estimated amount, then any excess we pay over the year is given back to us in the form of a Tax Refund (a happy time of the year for many). However, since Patreon doesn't take out money for that yet still submits the money, we have to set aside money to pay for taxes. So in addition to the 9% they take off the top of our earnings, we also have to give up a tax amount, so we end up with even less than the full amount.

2) I understand Patreon is providing a wonderful service and has been allowing me to squeeze by when it comes to living expenses, but between the gaps in processing times and fragile system that can mess me up pretty easily, I'm considering cutting out the middle man.

So this goes out to those that are supporting me, would you folks be okay if I switched off my Patreon and we did business directly through Paypal?

I am working on better systems so I can start getting you your Thank You awards more streamlined, and also add on a few more benefits that will hopefully sweeten the deal.

I really need to know what you guys think ASAP so I can close out my Patreon and we can put the new system into action.

Much Love and Thanks,

Jo

Drum Meets Francesca
Art Trade with :iconjamsnjelly:

Looks like Drum hit on the wrong dancer.

This marks the return of both my art and some of my characters, prepare for more art, commissions, and hopefully a nice sprinkling of some old faces we have grown to love and/or hate.

ou are now cursed. You must send this on or you will be killed. Tonight at 12:00am, by Bloody Mary. This is no joke. So don't think you can quickly get out of it and delete it now because Bloody Mary will come to you if you do not send this on. She will slit your throat and your wrists and pull your eyeballs out with a fork. And then hang your dead corpse in your bedroom cupboard or put you under your bed. What's your parents going to do when they find you dead? Won't be funny then, will it? Don't think this is a fake and it's all put on to scare you because your wrong, so very wrong. Want to hear of some of the sad, sad people who lost their lives or have been seriously hurt by this email?

CASE ONE -
Annalise [Surname Removed] :She got this email. Rubbish she thought. She deleted it. And now, Annalise dead.

CASE TWO -
Louise [Surname Removed]: She sent this to only 4 people and when she woke up in the morning her wrists had deep lacerations on each. Luckily there was no pain felt, though she is scarred for life.

CASE THREE -
Thomas [Surname Removed]: He sent this to 5 people. Big mistake. The night Thomas was lying in his bed watching T.V. The clock shows '12:01am'. The T.V misteriously flickered off and Thomas's bedroom lamp flashed on and off several times. It went pitch black, Thomas looked to the left of him and there she was, Bloody Mary standing in white rags. Blood everywhere with a knife in her hand then disappeared. The biggest fright of Thomas's life.

Warning... NEVER look in a mirror and repeat -'Bloody Mary.Bloody Mary.' Bloody Mary... I KILLED YOUR SON' Is it the end for you tonight! YOU ARE NOW CURSED

We strongly advise you to send this email on. It is seriously NO JOKE. We don't want to see another life wasted. ITS YOUR CHOICE... WANNA DIE TONIGHT? If you send this email to...

NO PEOPLE - You're going to die.

1-5 PEOPLE - You're going to either get hurt or get the biggest fright of your life.

5-15 PEOPLE - You will bring your family bad luck and someone close to you will die.

15 -25 OR MORE PEOPLE - You are safe from Bloody Mary

I love the grammar in this "scary" chain "curse" spiel. Seriously did a 3rd grader write this because I haven't seen anything this poorly written, I think it was some kid or somebody who's brain dead. Watch this, tonight I'll live and I'll reply to you after not sending it out once. You know what they say, "fight stupidity with stupidity." Er go, if I love tonight and message you I've thence proven that this is all BS
