Various mobile devices sporting our Patreon wallpapers

One month ago today, we launched a grand experiment to bring our fans amazing wallpapers, icons, and avatars using a brand new Patreon account. So how’s it going?

It’s only been a short time, but we already feel like we’ve gotten our pixelated grooves back. We didn’t realize just how much we’ve missed creating these digital goodies!

Over 100 people have signed up and backed us, and that’s a good start. We’d love to devote the majority of our to time creating this type of content, but for that to happen we’ll need more patrons. These things take time, so we’re committed to building up a base of great content. We’ve been hard at work this past month making great stuff that people can enjoy well into the future.

If you’re not a patron, here’s a quick rundown of the goodies you could be enjoying by joining us. First of all, there are the wonderful wallpapers for your iPhone, iPad, and computer:

In the icon department, we released our first set of Mac desktop icons in over 6 years, to celebrate the arrival of Captain Marvel in theaters. We also created several fun avatars for use on social media, including Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi from the LEGO Movie 2 and Japan’s iconic hero Ultraman.

But wait, there’s more! Wallpapers featuring Twitterrific’s Ollie and a Captain Marvel in outer space are completely free to download and enjoy.

We have some exciting things in the works, too. This week we teased our upcoming Game of Thrones goodies with a free wallpaper that fans of the series are sure to love – White Walker.

Patrons have also enjoyed our brand new podcast, taken part in polls, chatted with us on Discord, and taken advantage of custom-made goodies. We love making things for you fine folks, so subscribe today and help us spread the word online.

We’ll report back next month and let you know once again how it’s all going. Thanks!
