Have you ever wondered how freelance artists make a living? Well, it ain't easy, I tell ya! At this point in time, I am not working full-time as an artist, but it is still a very real dream for me. It's my life goal and if I can inspire others along the way, it would be THE BEST. This is why I am so excited to tell you that I have joined Patreon.
Being obsessed with everyday holidays (like French Fries Day and Donut Day!), I have finally decided to make the jump and illustrate a 12-book series, featuring these holidays. Maybe it will be considered a very helpful reference book in the future? But to make that happen, I will need your help.
By becoming a patron on Patreon (see what they did there?), you would literally be a "patron of the arts". With as little as a $1 a month, you will help finance my projects as well as help sustain my family. In return, as a thank you, you will receive a behind-the-scenes look into my process and super rad gifts! Oh, you fancy, huh?
If you can't subscribe, that's totally okay! I still love you and will still be blogging and posting on Instagram like normal. If you could share with others that would like to see the process, that would be so so amazing!
In a world where artists need to battle with spam and algorithms just to be noticed, I am so glad to finally be part of a community that is made for artists to focus on creating. Engaging with patrons has always been a dream of mine, and with Patreon, it is possible. I want this to be a place that is full of color and fun for everyone involved.
And if YOU are a creative soul, get to making!
Visit Patreon today to discover how you can finally make that dream come true!
I draw, make, and occasionally tell a story.
