About C C J Ellis

Hello and welcome to my Patreon!

My name is C C J Ellis and I’m a full time illustrator, author and researcher of mythical creatures. Focusing mainly on dragons. My artistic inspiration comes from the natural world, the universe, strong emotions and ancient folklore. I create my work in a verity of media including ink, graphite, watercolour, Adobe Photoshop and Procreate. 

What am I working on?
Right now I am working on a personal project 'Welsh Dragons'. Over the next year or so, I’ll be exploring, documenting and researching the dragons (and dragon-like creatures) from Welsh folklore. My aim, to create a published resource book that takes you on an in-depth journey through the symbolism, history and potential natural history of Wales’ most renowned mythical creatures. 

Join the Discord Community! A safe and welcoming space for fans of my art and those that love all things monstrous and fantastical. Chat with me while I work in the studio, access secret projects and downloadable colouring pages.

Go behind the scenes and gain access to my private feed. Here you'll get to view my artistic process, watching sketches and concepts transform into fully formed illustrations. You can also view exclusive behind the scenes pictures from events and adventures in the real world places I draw my inspiration from.

Get your hands on exclusive prints and arty giveaways!
At least two - three times I year I like to do an art giveaway for everyone in the WYVERN tier and those who have donated over a certain about over their lifetime. Giveaways normally coincide with my birthday, Halloween and the holiday season. Items are exclusive to Patreon supporters and can not be purchased from any of my online stores. They are often art prints, stickers, patches, magnets etc..

Sketchbook scans will be posted on 'Sketchbook-Sundays' while behind the scenes photos will be posted on 'WIP-Wednesdays', Polls will be posted as an when they are required. I try to limit myself to a 2 posts per week format, so I don't spam your feeds and inboxes. 

However, If you feel I am posting too often you can turn off your email notifications by selecting "Settings" from the drop-down menu on the top right. Scroll on down to "Email Settings" - there you can manage all email preferences. You will then only see my posts in the Patreon feed rather than in your inbox. 

Please take a moment to familiarise yourself with these points before signing up:

* You are under no obligation and can cancel or alter your pledge amount at any time.
* Please make sure your address is up to date as you may be eligible for giveaways when targets are reached, I also like to write festive cards as a thank you to long-term patrons.
* Please be nice to other members, bullying and inappropriate behaviour will not be tolerated and will also result in your account being blocked.
* Rewards will only be dispatched once payment has been processed.
* You may not share private posts on any other website.

Thank you so much for reading! If you love all things mythical and all things dragon then please consider pledging, I have so many plans for future artworks and projects and I would love it so much if you could become a part of this artistic journey.

$376.32 of $500 per month
With $500 per month coming in I'd have significantly more time to focus on my personal projects. This would easily cover the cost of all the software & materials I need to run my business. 

On reaching this goal, all Patreons in the WYVERN level tier will receive a set of metalic shiny stickers, featuring two of my designs.
