I'm a narrative painter, I love to tell stories with my work. I've decided to give Patreon a try so that I can dedicate more time to doing what I love to do most, and so that maybe I can quit one of my three jobs.

I am also a teacher at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center. I love to teach and show people how to see so that they can take what's in their minds and make it real. My goals in life are to make sure no one has to work as hard as I did to get the education needed to express themselves, and to make works of art that move and engage people. Thank you so much for coming to my page, I hope to inspire, create and share what I know. 

With your investment you will be giving me more time to be able to complete the paintings I need to paint. I do series of works that focus on a certain topic I think important to explore. The last series I've just finished was on death, the next series will be on mental health, and after that a series of illustrated short stories. You're investment will make it possible for me to this work faster, and give me a much easier time to compile these works into books and gallery shows. 

Fore more information about me and my work please go to my website at Brianskolart.com Thank you again for your time and consideration.
Tiers
Squire
$1 or more per month
 This gets you all the behind the scenes process shots along with the finished images of my work as it comes out. This also makes you eligible for any raffles or giveaways that I’ll be offering each month as a special thank you to all my supporters.  
Alchemist
$5 or more per month
  Not only do you get behind the scenes shots documenting my process, you also get descriptions along with it. What this means is that you get to read about how I think about doing my work, what problems I might be having or overcoming, and general working methods as I often experiment with painting to discover new and better methods of technique. 
Time Mage
$15 or more per month
  This tier allows you to see in time lapse video with description, whatever it is I’m working on at the time. Sometimes It’ll be drawings, sometimes painting. Whatever is happening in my studio, you’ll get to see it in super fast speed. 
Rogue
$25 or more per month
I am ambidextrous, which you can see here. What this tier gets you is the ability to watch me in a time lapse video, do an ambidextrous drawing, along with a description of my technique. These drawings I will end up raffling off to everyone who signs up to be a patron at any level, with a special added bonus thrown in if you win and are a member of the Rogue Class. 
Monk
$30 or more per month only 3 left
 This investment is more personal. If you’re an artist looking to get better at their craft, being a monk is right for you. What you do is every month you can submit your artwork to me, and I will make for you a critique video that’s a minimum of 25 minutes long, which will address everything I can see that needs improvement, along with a digital paint over if it's needed to help better illustrate what I’m talking about. We’re visual learners, so sometimes it really helps to see it instead me just talking. The digital paint over will be crude, I won’t be fixing everything that’s wrong, but it will be enough to help you understand some of the concepts I might be talking about. This is a limited membership, so be sure to jump in while spots are available if you’re interested in getting better as an artist. 
Sword Mage
$50 or more per month only 4 left
This gets you a signed print of one of my works of art at a max size of 15x13, every month. Some prints will be slightly smaller given the nature of the work. This also puts you into the Bard category. Your investment means the bards will sing songs of your dedication, and you will be listed on my website and given credit in my videos as a contributing member to my page. Shipping included to anywhere in the U.S.
Knight
$100 or more per month only 2 left
You’ve worked your way up the skill tree and have now reached the height of nerd-power; the knight. This is a $100 dollar a month subscription that gets you an original painting in the range of an 8x10 picture, every other month. Meaning, every other month you will get to chose between a landscape, a nude figure (male or female is your choice), or a floral still life. A one of a kind oil painting that will range in size depending on the subject, 6x12, 9x9, 7x11, or 8x10, for example. Every other month you can decide between one of the three subjects. The rest will be up to my discretion. 
Dragon Hunter
$100 or more per month only 2 left
 This is a $100 a month level that spans for an entire year, and gives you the ability to commission me to do a painting of your choice up to the size of a 24x20 picture. This means that you and I will work over the course of the year to produce a custom picture. You will get an exclusive time lapse video of its creation, and small print of the picture along with a thank you note. If you agree to this level it means we will have to work together and flush out an idea, I will send you a contract mapping out my process and your commitment of support for the year, and then I will get to work. 
Holy Knight
$115 or more per month only 2 left
 A knight blessed with the power of magic, this is a $115 dollar investment where everything applies from the Knight Class, but also gets you an exclusive time lapse video with voice over of the painting you’ve received. The voice over will be about my approach, what I'm thinking about with my process, and the subject matter itself if it applies.
Goals
$24 of $500 per month
I will be able to quit one of my three jobs, my least favorite one, and that will free up additional time and stress for me, allowing me to create more. I will also shit a kitten from surprise which will be super cute, and I will document this process in a time lapse video and do a giveaway of the drawing of me literally shitting a kitten.
