Half-way thru the Pledge Drive!

Hello me Droogies! 
We are halfway through the drive and still a bit to go. The first few days were rocking, but it's slackin since. In case you don't follow me on the social medias, you been missing these celebratory posts:

So we got another week to make the goal, and I know everybody wants a sketchbook of my ink portraits. Once the goal is met, I will produce them and make them available... if the goal is met by the end of the drive, I will send one to each of my patrons who want one!

New pledges also receive a holiday card from me, and those at the Dust Bunny ($5) and above level receive a handmade ornament of either the Ghost Skater or Brad McGuire on the can, your choice! 
   Brad is a little under 5" tall, and the Skater is 6" sneaker to wing-tip.

I've also been posting about the different pledge levels/rewards themselves. At this point we are about halfway through the lot, from the most basic (the lint), through the one most people go for (the roomba rabbit). Aren't they cute and/or gross? 

Lastly but not least (maybe I should have lead with this one?) I'll mention my new introduction video. I made this one to highlight the work I have done over the first year on Patreon, and mention what the next year is looking like. It's very satisfying to look back on all of the work I have done there, and all of the extras I have posted just for my patrons. Check it out! You know you wanna. 

Become a Patron! You get cool stuff, and you get to help me make ends meet while I spend way too much time making art in a field that just doesn't pay. You'd be making a huge difference in this comix artist's life!
Thanks, Dave Davenport

Pagan Pledge Drive!

Hello Droogies!
Today I am starting my first pledge drive for my Patreon page! It's been a little over a year since the initial launch, and though it's been a success, I am hoping to reach the next "goal" on my page with this drive. I've put together a few rewards for new pledges, and a year's end card for all of my Patrons, new and old. Reaching the goal also "activates" the goal reward on my page, which will be a Dogspunk Sketchbook; a collection of ink drawings I have done over the years. Probably a PG version and a naughty one as an extra.

PLUS: if we reach the goal in the first week, or pass it and make the next goal, I will send out hard copies of the sketchbook free as a way of thanks!
So here's the break-down:
All Patrons (new and old) will receive a Year's End Card, mailed to you with a personalized greeting from me if you pledge at $1 or more!

New Pledges at $3 and above will receive their choice of hand-made Tree Ornament!

Such Excitement.
Head over to Patreon now and check it out... chip in a few bucks if you'd like a tree ornament and a holiday card.. and to help support me while I make comics.
Thanks, all!

Pagan Holidays!

Happy Holidays, me Droogs!
It's been quite a year and we all can't wait to put it behind us,
but there's that awkward time at the end of the year to deal with...
when we show our love through the capitalist lens of shopping and gift giving!
What better time to send out an email blast!
I've not sent an e-mail since our successful kickstarter campaign for the Hard to Swallow comics anthology, published by Zan Christensen at Northwest Press. The book is beautiful and would make a great gift for the perv in your life. Visit Northwest Press to purchase... they are having a 40% off sale through the 17th of December and have a large catalog of LGBT(etc.) comics, including a few other anthologies I have pieces in, as well as a broad range of quality stuff!
There's also the ALPHABET anthology from Stacked Deck Press, which benefits the Prism Comics Queer Press Grant. It's all people who have applied for the grant over the past decade, and I must say it's one of the strongest anthologies I've ever read, and I am not just saying that because I have a piece in it. Most anthologies are full of some good, some bad, and average out to be, well, average. But this is all really great stuff. I'm proud to be a part of ALPHABET.
In my own store have copies of my comic
Feral and the Ghost Skater: Damaged
self-published/printed version (glossy comic-book version coming soon with extra pages) up for sale, as well as a new t-shirt design from earlier this year, and some older shirts still available. Pick one up for yourself or for the pervy monster lover in your family!

D  O  G  S  P  U  N  K  .  C  O  M 
Finally there's my news of my Patreon page.
It's been a little over a year since the launch, and I've been cranking out content on it pretty well. I'm going to launch a pledge drive campaign in the next few days that will last a few weeks, with the goal of reaching the next "goal" on my page. I'm figuring out now how to structure the incentives and such, but expect to be hearing too much about it over the month of December!

Questioning Authority

Hey Droogies!


It's been 6 months since I launched my Patreon page, and I wanted to give an update. Things have been good there, and after a few months of posting some exclusive stories and archived stories, I finally got into the weeds with the next chapter of "Feral and the Ghost Skater", which is called "Damaged" and peeks in on what's been going on with Feral's alter-ego, Grant. Grant is the sad-sack of the bunch. the rest of the characters are having fun, but he just can't find the joy in his situation. Poor fella.
Page 3 of DAMAGED

Anyways, as so often does, life got in the way of this story. The current political season got me all worked up and I felt like I had something to say, so rather than continue to engage in social media flame-wars, I decided to make a comic about how I came to be the political creature I am today, and how that informs my views on this current season. I hope you will take the time to read it, and share it with whomever you feel might enjoy it. I'm not a political scientist, nor an english major, so please don't judge it as if it's a professional essay. It's a comic book.

You can find it here on my safe for all ages comics website Marginalized Publications, or also on my Patreon page... the pertinent pages are accessible to the public there. And if you enjoy it, and/or my other work on Patreon, please consider pledging a dollar or more a month. I've gained patrons over the past 6 months since the initial launch, but I have also lost a few and had a number reduce their pledges due to economic hardships, which believe me I get it. Times are tough, and I appreciate every single cent I get from my patrons. So share this, spread the word. I am always on the look out to increase my audience.

Thank you, friends.
And please, I welcome feedback. Tell me what you like on my site/Patreon, what you'd like to see more of. 

Oh, and if you'd like a hard copy of this comic, send me your mailing address... if you are in the states I will be happy to send you one on my dime. Overseas is too expensive, sorry :/

"Ello Droogies!

It's been a few months since my last post, but I hope to do them more frequently in the future.

But THIS message is to tell you about my latest shirt: 

"F*** this S***"!

(free shipping on domestic orders 50$ and over!) $22 plus shipping & sales tax for 2xl.

Head over to and hit the store button or follow this STORE link directly to go marvel at this masterpiece of over it. BTW, my patrons on Patreon had some input when it came to details of the finished design, so blame them. Bastards.

Hard to Swallow Kick Starter!

Hey All!

As you probably have noticed, we've had a kickstarter campaign going to fund the printing of the collected volume of Hard to Swallow Comics, put together by Zan of North West Press!

We passed the initial goal of $15,000 around midnight on Weds, and we have a few stretch goals in play now: hardcover editions if we reach $17,500, and a full color section including a cover gallery and color pin-ups if we reach the $20,000 mark. At the rate we are going, we will easily make the first stretch goal, and if momentum keeps we will make the second!
I had to kick and scream and generally make a fool of myself to get the color section goal included, so let's make my making an ass of myself worth it, Droogies!

Visit the Kickstarter page for the campaign here:

The book includes all four previous volumes of the celebrated smut-rag, and enough new material to constitute a new fifth issue.
Includes over three hundred pages of story from Justin Hall and Dave Davenport, and guest contributors Bil Sherman, Steve MacIsaac, Drub, Brad Rader, Victor Hodge, and Jon Macy... plus some sweet pin-ups from Julian Cardozo and William O. Tyler!

Set for a release date of March 7th, 2016 (at Emerald City comic-con in Seattle).

Bookmark to keep on top of any news :)

Thanks for your attention :D

Hello, me Droogies! 
I've launched a Patreon Page

W.T.F. is Patreon

from the patreon faq:

What Is Patreon?

For creators:
Patreon is a way to get paid for creating the things you’re already creating (webcomics, videos, songs, whatevs).  Fans pledge a few bucks per month OR per thing you release, and then you get paid every month, or every time you release something new (whether it’s on SoundCloud, YouTube, your own website, or anywhere).
For patrons:
Patreon is a way to pay your favorite creators for making the stuff you love.  Instead of literally throwing money at your screen (trust us, that doesn’t work), you can now pledge a few bucks per thing that a creator makes.  For example, if you pledge $2 per video, and the creator releases 3 videos in February, then your card gets charged a total of $6 that month.  This means the creator gets paid regularly (every time she releases something new), and you become a bonafide, real-life patron of the arts.  That’s right.  Imagine you, in a long frilly white wig, painted on a 10-foot canvas on the wall of a Victorian mansion.  And imagine your favorite creators making a living doing what they do best… because of you.
Click here to watch a short video explaining Patreon on YouTube:

My Page went live a few days ago.

On Friday the 13th of November!

It's (obviously) to support my dangerous habit of making comics to the detriment of all else! The majority of my work will be posted free online as web-comics at:
There will be some that are only available to patrons of a certain pledge level, but mostly free. So please keep an eye on that page, but also chip in if you like my work... want to support my creative endeavors... or just want to get some mental hugs from me. Pledges are as low as $1 dollar a month, and you can quit at any time.

Thanks for your support, it really means a lot to me.
