HEY HEY! I am Arthur Ball, The Above Average Artist and I want to thank you for visiting my Patreon page. Supporting my Above Average Art is the thing to do. All the cool kids are doing it. By giving me your financial and social support it allows me to concentrate on what I do best, CREATIVITY!
  • I can think clearly without the burden of desperately searching for money. (It's elusive.) Mostly that means I can pay my bills, buy food and art supplies. Cause thats basically all I spend money on.
  • I'll have the monetary freedom to perform Research & Development. Experimentation is often a money pit, but without it there is no innovation. I love innovation and trying new things, so R&D is a must.
  • With more financial freedom i can concentrate on Creating and Producing my Above Average Patreon support rewards, coming up with new ones and maximizing the ones I have. I'm a very generous person, so I want to give my supporters the most I can in exchange for their...  SUPPORT.

Art with your support...

I want to make art and with the support of this Patreon platform I can make some of my Artistic goals come true.
  • Make all your rewards: That's first and foremost. I got to keep you fine people happy.
  • Limited Edition Prints: A lot of my art is digital, and the only way to make it is to print it. I'd like to make higher end prints of my work in numbered runs of 1000
  • Better Stickers: I make my stickers. Most of them at least. I bought a sticker making machine a couple years back and it can do some cool stuff other sticker machines can't. Your support will help me buy materials for my sticker making machine.
  • Reproductions: I'm also a sculptor. I want to get better at molding and casting my sculptures so i can reproduce them and hopefully offer them as rewards in the future.
There's a lot more, but that's good enough to start with.

Rewards...

All your rewards will be Above Average
  • Patreon Feed: I am going to post videos and photos of my Above Average progress on here and ONLY HERE! Production shots and behind the scenes stuff.Plus you'll know about all my new stuff before anyone else.
  • Stickers: I will be making a bad ass sticker every month in limited quantities. The only place you can get them is at my artist space (See Below), at a convention I attend, fair I attend or here on Patreon. That's it.
  • Stencils: This is the ONLY place you can get these from. That's it. No place else.
  • T-shirts: I don't make a lot of shirts. I make most of them as needed, but if you support me. You definitely get a shirt.
  • Artist Sketch: I make all my sketches on chipboard. They are black and white. The chipboard is 5x7 and made from recycled food and cereal boxes. It gets mailed to you in a hard plastic protective sleeve.
  • Sponsored Art: This level gets you a low numbered limited print that you sponsored. On the back of that print you and all the people who sponsor my prints will have your names or business names printed naming you as beloved sponsors.

Goals
$0 of $2,500 per month
This is the dream. If I can earn $2,500 worth of support each month I can pay for the following:
  • Student Loans: (SO MUCH!) I went to SCAD and IADT. They both are very expensive and the people I borrowed money from to pay them will not leave me alone.
  • Gas (Fuel): At the moment I drive a 28 year old truck that has 28 year old fuel economy. I'd like to upgrade to something more socially conscious someday. Until then I need gas to drive around and find a lot of the materials I use in my art. That's right, I find a lot of my art supplies in dumpster, at garage sales or on the side of the road. One man's trash is another man's treasure. 
  • Art Supplies: for me this includes, paint, wood, nails, sticker making stuff, T-shirts, tools and assorted chemicals. I make a lot of different Art. I also experiment a lot with things to try and come up with new Above Average Art. 
  • Entry Fees: Wouldn't you know that artist fairs, festivals and conventions rarely let you attend for free? As an artist, you may pay upwards of $600 to set up at a show with no real guarantee of making that money back. Plus there are entry fees for some that can add up quickly. These shows are places, I can interact with you, my fans and found out what you like. They also are places, I can express myself openly.
  • Bills: Do you have bills? Then you know. They suck, but they just keep coming. They can't be stopped, but they can be appeased on a month by month basis.
That's mostly it. I don't really do much else. I eat, sleep, work, pay bills and make Above Average Art.
