What is patreon?

Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for artists and creators to run a subscription content service, as well as ways for artists to build relationships and provide exclusive experiences to their subscribers, or "patrons." . Join over 50000 creators earning salaries from over 1000000 monthly patrons.
 

Why patreon?

I wanted my Patreon to be a new avenue for fans to discover my work, collect my pieces and connect with me. 
I want to be able to share my work with as many people as I can. My comic library is growing and doing 5 shows a year isn't enough. I would love to exhibit in Toronto, Chicago, Seattle, hell even San Diego or New York! So, my goal on here is to build some savings to help get me where I want to go.

 

Rewards

You're probably thinking "that's all well and good, but what's in it for me?" Ah, an excellent question. I've been doing a "Sketch A Day" through my Instagram for a couple of years now. I'm thinking of taking that concept and applying it here. Every day a supporter of mine can get a high res digital copy of a sketch I've made.
On top of that I'll have phone wallpapers, digital prints from my archives, maybe progress videos (once I'm familiar with vlogging.)
Another reward will be a new monthly digital art print. These are just like the prints I have at shows. These will be fully coloured. Some will be for you guys before I print them to bring to shows so you'll get first dibs.

Monthly Themes

I'll be doing themed months to keep things fresh. I'll even have Patrons choice and choose someone's suggestions at random. 
It can be a full month of WWE Superstars, the next can be all Video Game characters. Something to challenge me every month and do new stuff to get me out of my comfort zone.

tRYING SOMETHING neW

Believe it or not but I actually started my adult life in Television. I went to school to learn how to produce TV. Unfortunately, when I graduated, the production world upgraded and streamlined, which made it difficult to find work. I used the skills I learned and put it towards comics. I can write any script I want and adapt it to any medium I want. Knowing where the "camera" goes to make the best looking visual available. 
Lately I've been seeing a lot of my peers dip their toes into the YouTube format. Doing tutorials or stream their process as they draw. I thought "Why not?" and have joined the ranks!
I'll have reaction videos, comic hauls, tutorials and process videos. Whatever I feel like I wanna share it with you so go check it out!
