About



Hello and thank you so much for making your way to my Patreon page! 



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

Becoming a Patreon of my art
 will grant you first refusal on any originals for sale a day before public release. You'll also gain access to my private feed, where you'll get to view my artistic process, watching thumbnail sketches and concepts transform into fully formed illustrations. 
You can view exclusive behind the scenes pictures from my studio and events and have your say in what directions I take creatively by answering polls. Higher reward tiers will give you access to hand written notes and original artwork. 



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.

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. 






Art rewards are available to both 'Wyvern' and 'Dragon' level Patreon supporters. Each month you will be prompted to request a custom sketch of your choice. Each sketch will be hand drawn onto A6 size card, 
approx. 4.13 x 5.83 inches in size, will be mounted and sent to you via Royal Mail.

- Please request one creature / character only
- Provide a clear outline of what you would like me to draw

Goals
$309 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 each month to run my business. 

On reaching this goal, all Patreons pledging over $5 a month will receive a set of unicorn and dragon skull vinel stickers:
