Annie Dunn is creating Chaos in Color
14

patrons

Hello, I'm Annie, the artist behind Chaos in Color, featuring curiously cognizant cats and skeletons. As the tag line suggests, my work consists mostly of cats who like to hang out with skeletons. If I think of something funny then a few other oddities might also make an appearance because, hey, humor is all about the unexpected.

I sell my work at art shows, have an e-commerce website, and am also represented by a successful gallery, so what am I doing here on Patreon? 

The larger works that I create for the fine art audience are very time consuming. I release only about six new pieces per year. That leaves a lot of silence between releases, even though I'm still working almost every day. The recovery after finishing one of these paintings is worse than a five alarm hangover because the artwork takes so much out of me. I nearly obsess over them.

I'm not going to stop making the larger production pieces, they are my pride and joy, but I need an outlet that provides some spontaneity as well. These smaller pieces may be more experimental, more playful, more vulnerable, and in some cases even more macabre. 

Patreon is all about reciprocity. As a patron you are giving with the trust that I will create something worthwhile. That is humbling and also terrifying. I will do everything I can to be worthy of that trust and to create something each week that I hope will be of value to you.

I'd also like to help more cats. I'm still working out ideas in my head but I know it's not a one person job and I know it will be even better if you are part of it. When I figure this out I'll post an update. 

So go ahead and identify what you get from my work, whether it's a burst of laughter, a moment of memento mori, or maybe just an emotional color high, and then pledge the amount that these benefits are worth to you. For the cats, for the creation of new artwork, and for your own enjoyment, thank you for becoming a patron. ♥

Helping Hand
$1 or more per month

Welcome to the chaos, I'm so happy you're here! As a patron you will get to see exclusive posts about what's happening at Chaos in Color. This includes works in progress, where you can give feedback and maybe even influence what happens next. Want to see more arachnids? More coffins? More calico cats? I want to hear from you! Your input carries a lot of weight because you're actively helping to make this happen.  ♥ 

Chaos Collector
$5 or more per month

This is the big one, because posting new art every week is what really keeps me going. You can download the images for personal use. (I'm trusting you not to post it anywhere else because that would make it a whole lot less special for my other patrons). This is also eco-friendly because the artwork is all digital - it requires no printing and no packaging. But most of all, knowing that you are waiting to see something new every week makes me work harder than I ever would for just myself.

Bonus Black Cat Magnet
$5 or more per month

You get the same benefits as a Chaos Collector, but as a bonus for becoming a patron I'll send you a free decorative magnet (3" Round). These magnets are not available to buy, they are only available as a patron benefit. 

True Believer
$25 or more per month

Stop the shredders! I like to de-clutter, and I delete stuff from my other websites all the time. (The photo you see attached is shredded artwork.) But if you are dedicated enough to support my work at this incredibly generous level then I promise to curb my de-cluttering impulses and preserve all past posts, which will be accessible only to members of this tier. And also, thank you, thank you, thank you.  You have my deepest gratitude.

Goals
14 of 20 patrons
At 20 patrons I'll release the name of my super-secret book project. What's in it, you say? Well, there will be cats, and there will be art, but that's all I can tell you for now!
