My name is Anastasia Catris and I am a freelance illustrator and writer living in Cardiff in the United Kingdom. I love video games, drawing, Totoro and cheese. I also have blue hair and an obsession with pudgy animals.

I joined Patreon as it will allow me to fund my personal artwork and writing projects. It will also give me the inspiration and incentive to update my social media more regularly with art and brand new content; as well as connect with you guys through blog posts, exclusive works in progress, videos and live streams.

Your support allows me to focus on projects such as the ‘Cirque Du Mort’, ‘Geek Pillow Talk’, other personal book projects, web comics, sketchbooks and a whole host of ideas I’ve been itching to work on!

As a self employed artist a lot of my time is spent working on projects for companies, commission work and dealing with all the everyday admin/job-searching/self-marketing that comes with it. Sadly, this doesn't leave me much time to focus on my own personal projects.

Your pledges will not only help me run these everyday tasks and use the funds to make them more efficient (e.g. a higher quality printer for convention/store prints, online marketing services) but also to buy vital art supplies, pay studio bills, website fees, feed my cat (and me!) but most importantly they will allow me the personal freedom to work on my own projects.



If you are brand new to the world of Patreon - Welcome! Follow this link for a really handy video explaining how it all works.

Basically, Patreon is a crowdfunding tool a lot like Kickstarter. The main difference being that, rather than funding one large project that has a set financial amount as its end goal, you are subscribing to help fund a creator to create artwork and projects on a regular basis. 

By becoming a Patron you are also gaining access to a number of perks and rewards; not to mention the warm, happy knowledge that you are regularly contributing to helping an artist create brand new work. 



If you like my artwork and would like to help me create even more, or you would like access to the Patreon Only Area which will include exclusive content not shown on any of my other social media accounts including:
  • Videos
  • Online Live Streaming of art process
  • Works in Progress
  • Work on current official projects (permission allowing) including book illustration, sketch card work and commissions.
  • Vlogs of conventions and public appearances behind the scenes.#

Then all you have to do is become a Patron and choose how much you would like to donate per month (even a $1 can go a long way!) As well as the perks mentioned above, you can also get:
  • Entry into a monthly Patron-Only prize draw
  • Patron-Only commission lists
  • Discount off artwork, prints and books 
  • Early access to YouTube Video content and future pre-orders
  • Ability to request characters/sketches in warm ups/live streams
  • Prints, commissions, artwork, postcards and sketchcards (depending on the pledge tier you choose).

If this seems like something that might interest you and you would like to follow my Patreon as a supporter, click the ‘Become a Patron’ button and get started now!

You can change your pledge at any time so there’s no obligation.

I appreciate any support you are willing to give and thank you so much for taking the time to look at my campaign.

Please feel free to visit me on FacebookInstagramTwitter or learn more about me and my artwork via my Website.

Goals
$106 of $400 per month
Reaching this goal per month from Patreon would help me pay my studio bills, admin fees and help greatly towards my cost of living; which will in turn free up time for me to pursue personal projects rather than having to take on commercial work. If I reach this milestone, I will be adding PDF downloads of unique Colouring Pages as a reward to supporting Patrons.
