My goal with this Patreon Page is to give as much as I can to the widest number of Patrons and still be able to support myself and my business. Each Reward Tier, of course, has its own bonus, but the page is structured with low cost tiers and as I establish and reach each Goal, the Goals become available to every Patron.
I want everyone to be able to enjoy and afford the information here. One of the things that bring me the most joy is when my work can inspire someone. If my work inspires *you* to work, to write, to draw, to inspire and to keep working - to delve into your own art, your own world, then I am happy. When someone says, "I saw you do this... how do you do that? What does it mean? What story are you telling?" that makes me happy. I love to talk about my process and my ideas.



Allen Williams Studio (Who am I?)
I have been a working artist and illustrator for over 28 years. I began my career working small jobs throughout the industry, progressing into Magic the Gathering cards. I moved onto larger game jobs and books covers and eventually started working in the film and television industry doing concept art. All during this time I would also work on my own ideas, concepts and artwork. My art has been exhibited in galleries around the US and overseas. I have also written and illustrated a YA (young adult) book titled The Witches Kitchen published by Little Brown in 2010.

Vicki, my wife and business partner, and I decided to set this page up, with your help. You can give whatever you would like and help us make and share some cool stuff. My intention is for this to be a place for my art, tutorials, stories and all the things that make my brain (and hopefully yours) feel good.



Why Patreon?
Patreon helps artists, musicians, all creators focus on what they do best. It will help me to focus on this. The artist can then give back to you, the Patron, the gifts that most inspire them and are unique to their world. The truly inspiring work. With your help this Patreon will give me the opportunity and time to be able to focus more of my energies on my own vision and giving back to you. With your help I can fully explore my own directions.
             

What I am making for you, The Patrons
I want to publish a hardcover art book of my finished paintings and drawings. Your support will help me do this and you will get first rights to any "specials" I will offer with it. Many of my pieces have stories wrapped around them, I want to be able to write and illustrate those stories and share them you, here, first. I’ll also quietly and discreetly preview some of my gallery work here.



I’ll write about my work (both process and story) and bring you into this world with me. In 2010 I wrote a YA (young adult) book titled The Witches Kitchen and it was published through Little Brown Publishing. I want to jump back into that world and explore my other directions. For instance, I am beginning to incorporate sculptural designs into my 2D paintings. There are so many avenues to explore and I would welcome you to come along with me… into my "craziness" as Vicki often calls it.

Take a look around, see what you think... join us if you like …I think we can help each other. You are welcome here.

Allen and Vicki Williams

Ok, So if we make it to this goal I would like to offer a Question & Answer Session with me drawing and you guys watching and shooting questions to me while Vicki fields everything. (At least that's what she tells me is going to happen.) I mean EVERYONE can come if they like! We are going to have a Google Hangouts or some place and I will start with one of these a month. As we hit more goals I would love to do more!
