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.
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.
You're probably thinking "that's all well and good, but what's in it for me?" Ah, an excellent question. I have 6 reward tiers for anyone looking for exclusive artwork. Videos showing my process and doing a mini tutorial on how I do it will be featured for only a dollar. for $5 you can get a custom iPhone or Android Wallpaper featuring my artwork. $10 gets you a classic print from my archives. I’m a huge X-Men nerd so every month I’ll draw and colour a member of the merry mutants for $15. I’ve also been dipping into water colours and want to showcase them to my Patrons. At the $20 level you’ll get a head or bust of any random character of my choosing (or yours) made entirely out of water colour paints. The final $30 reward is where things get sexy. I will be offering an exclusive ‘lewd’ pinup girl character. Just something classy and sexy like the old Playboy pinups.
