Mutant Standard has donation goals. The more donations, the more the project is able to do!
Goals start as fun and educational things where people can gain more of an insight and learn from my emoji making process. As the goals get bigger, there will be more and more cool things like extra tech tools and even mobile keyboards so you can really put Mutant Standard in more places.

Combines both Patreon and Liberapay funding. (Liberapay's weekly total is quadrupled to make a projected monthly total and then converted into USD and rounded down).
Public sketch and process images
I'll collect all my sketches, notes and discarded emoji designs for that month and publish them on the blog for everyone to enjoy.
I'll do a public livestreaming session every month where you can watch me work on some emoji! (And they will be available as videos so you can watch them later if you missed them.)
Because of my sleep condition, the timings of these will shift each time I do them, so I'll announce when I do them closer to each livestream date.
I'll double the livestreams to twice a month!
Detailed process explanations
I'll make a detailed blog post each month where I explain the design process of a particular emoji (or group of emoji) that I have previously made. They will be posted in the same blog as the sketches and notes and will be done in a heavily visual way with a slick style like the emoji themselves.
Donors in Patreon's Emoji Cabal or higher tiers will be able to vote on what I cover.
This is where Mutant Standard can be a full-time job for me. And my tech partner kiilas can up the ante with technical resources.
This will be the research, development and maintenance of dedicated web tools to help get Mutant Standard into your sites, such as shortcode parsers, Unicode emoji translation and GUI emoji pickers.
Even more ideas
We have even more ideas for the future, like a Mutant Standard keyboard for phones, but we'll wait until we get close to this point to reveal more goals.
