NERO O’REILLY & IAN JAY SEATTLE COMMISSION (OVER)DRIVE!!

As many of you may have already heard, my wonderful boyfriend NERO O’REILLY and I (IAN JAY, a-duhhhh) plan on moving across the country to picturesque SEATTLE, WASHINGTON at the end of September! As staunch believers in proper buddy comedy methodology, we’ve decided to get there in the form of a MASSIVE COAST-TO-COAST ROAD TRIP. However, as anyone who has moved before knows, moving costs money. Some things we need to pay for include:


- A tune-up and new tires for my car so that it can survive the trek.
- Gas money for the long, long drive across the entire dang United States.
- The deposit and first month’s rent on the home we end up renting.
- Money for furniture, food and incidentals— anything we can’t take with us (which is a whole lot).

This is all going to put an incredibly heavy strain on our savings accounts, so we’re reaching out to YOU, OUR WONDERFUL, ATTRACTIVE AND EXTREMELY INTELLIGENT READERS, to help us out. Here’s what you can do:

- Buy stuff! My webcomic EPIPHANY just came out in print and is NOW AVAILABLE in the IAN JAY SUPER COMICS ONLINE STORE. Nero also has a plethora of comics, merchandise and original art available in his TRUMPETSHARK COMICS ETSY SHOP. Grab some goodies from us if you haven’t already!

-Donate! If you’re the sort of person who has a couple extra pennies laying around for altruistic purposes, hit up the DONATION BUTTONS on our tumblr blogs!

- Commission stuff! In addition to our regular commission options, we’re also doing PREMIUM collaboration commissions that BOTH of us work on! Here’s a brief but comprehensive list of different stuff we do:
