Being a cartoonist has always been my dream but currently I work full time as an office administrator to support my family, working on the comic only in my spare time.

Any support you give the site, no matter how small, will bring me one step closer to quitting my day job and working full time as a cartoonist.

When the comic brings in the same amount of income or more as my day job, I will quit. It’s as simple as that.

What would that mean for the site?

It would absolutely mean an increase in the update schedule. Right now the site updates once a month on the 15th of every month. Each update is always at least four panels, always full colour, never copy-pasted or recycled. That’s the standard I hold myself to and once a month at that standard is all my timetable permits. My goal is to get the strip to the point where it updates once a week, maybe even twice a week one day.

It would also mean more time to work on other projects related to the site, like publishing collections of strips. Would you like to buy a Life on the Fourth Floor book? This is how we can make it happen.

What can you do?
There are loads of ways to support the site and bring us closer to our goal.

You can become a patron and support the site directly by throwing a little money into the tip jar every month.

But there are other ways too. For example, you can share your favourite strip on Facebook or Twitter. It seems like a small gesture, but it makes an enormous difference. In the past ten years, the readership has grown from just a few readers to thousands of people, just through word of mouth. When you tell friends about the site, you help it grow.

Needless to say, everyone who has already helped out in their own small way has earned my deepest gratitude and humblest thanks.
