My people, this is a global ecological emergency. *All* of us need to pitch in as best we can.
So if it helps you get motivated, then Zona, Mentl and all their friends are willing to bare it all for you to get the resources where they’re needed. Send me an email with a forwarded receipt or screen grab of an Australian 10 dollar (or above) donation and we’ll send you a nice sexy pic of the “Challenges of Zona” character of your choice.
I chose these two organizations as being the ones that will help the wildlife and the people, but I am willing to accept any proof of (recent) donation to any accredited relief organization dedicated to assisting with the fight against these horrific bush fires Down Under.
I’m a Californian, and I have seen my share of nasty wildfires, even more and worse in recent years. The Australian fires make anything I had to be evacuated from seem like a grease fire in my kitchen. If you think you are safe from the effects of this disaster because you live on the other side of the world, think again. This is worse than any fantasy world-beater my imagination could come up with. I have given and will give again.
For those of you who just like to click:
I’ve given and will give again next paycheck. How about you?
Just at the moment, we’re temporarily stalled on the animation project. So we’ve taken advantage of the lull to revisit the Gen 8 model of Zona, and I think this time, even more than last, we’ve hit it on the head. So Brian came up with a couple of pinups of her of which this is a closeup. If you want to see more (much more) become a Patreon patron at https://www.patreon.com/JEDraft
That’s right – from now through August 14th, all new rewards will be unlocked for all Patreon patrons of The Challenges Of Zona! This will give our one dollar Erogenians a taste of what they’ve been missing, and hopefully encourage others to become patrons and sample our best stuff!
And as for you others who have already given above and beyond, have no fear. August and September we will have a Double Rewards promotion with biweekly Sexy Stuff, Throwbacks and other goodies to reward you for your patience and generosity.
My heart is heavy tonight. We had to say goodbye to my dear constant companion and the inspiration for all the black cats in “Challenges Of Zona”, my beloved friend, P-Chan. He was very old and finally was very confused and in great pain. So we eased him into Summerland Thursday evening. Nonetheless, he’s still there in the past and in my memories, and in Inky and in Incus and in the one-eyed winged cat from the Otherwhen. (Yes, long-time readers will remember when he lost his eye to an abcess, years ago.)
I was approached by some of my fellow Webcomic creators about a Valentine’s Day cross-promotion where we create sexy images of our characters and put them out there along with everyone else’s for Valentine’s Day.
“Sexy stuff!?” I cried, aghast, “With Zona? Heaven forfend!”
But after a little persuasion, I decided to go ahead and put one out there. Follow the links and see mine and everyone else’s.
Over the past year, my Patreon patrons have been generously giving me money to pursue my vision of an animated web series based on The Challenges Of Zona. In return they get early updates, desktops and other fun stuff. But all of it has had one goal. And we have just passed the first milestone on the way to that goal.
I have just made the first payment to a talented young animator who is contracted to produce a 61-second fully animated trailer for The Challenges Of Zona.
We’re both really enthusiastic and I have high confidence that, within the next month or two we will have something to show folks that we’re serious about bringing a new fantasy phenomenon to the web.
I needed all of you, patrons and fans alike to support me in this and you have not disappointed. Eventually everyone will see the end product, but Zona’s patrons will be in on all the latest updates, new character models, tests, renders and everything as it happens, plus any other extras we can give in humble gratitude.
So be not shy. And, if you can, buy into the future of fantasy entertainment. one dollar, five dollars -ten or whatever you can afford. You won’t be sorry! This is happening!
We’re doing it. We’re moving forward. We’re bringing Zona to life.
You remember when our intrepid adventurers were stranded in Hollywood, California for awhile and the bored Zona would spend her time in the pool? Well sometimes she would forego the bathing suit. And your faithful storyteller did record the event.
My generous patrons at Patreon can see the whole thing in a high resolution desktop.
Do subscribe if you can, not just for the boobs and fun stuff, but to help Zona get to our goal and make an animated demo which, naturally, my patrons will be the first to see!
