The Abetter
reward item
$3
per month
The Abetter is an entry-level tier allowing you to aid in the creation of my art. When you support me at this level (or any level), it will enable me the space to create and is much appreciated. The Abetter tier is a step up from my free social-media platforms. You may have noticed many of my posts get lost in the algorithms of social media. But here on Patreon, you will not only get to see what I'm working on, but you will also be the first to peek at my work in progress. If you pledge $3 or higher before September 1, 2020, I will add your name on a wall dedicated to my supporters in my gallery, for the first year that the gallery is open. (unless of course, you'd prefer to remain anonymous)

The Perks:
  • Name on Gallery Wall
  • Voting and Suggestion Opportunities
  • Sneak Peeks at Current Work in Progress
  • Printable Coloring Page(s)
  • Downloadable Phone and Computer Wallpaper

About

Surreal ballpoint pen artwork; this is my style...no substitutions. There is no other quite like me. I am a dedicated artist whose work is collected worldwide.
In exchange for your support here on Patreon, I will be sharing tips on being a creator and developing your style, sneak-peeks, and giving you first dibs on sales, and the new work that I have to offer. I'm honored you're willing to support my artistic journey. With the current paradigm shift rising at the hands of Covid-19, my ability to share my artwork with you needs a transition into a new way. I have been working as a freelance, self-taught professional artist for over 15 years. Adaptation is a skill I've become accustomed to, and I see Patreon as a great new way to adapt and transition into new normals. I miss sharing my work with people face-to-face, hearing their questions, critiques, and encouragement. I hope you can join me on Patreon so that I again may answer your questions, listen to your critiques, and hear your encouragement
