     I'm a mess. A game designer, musician, writer... artist in many ways with goals to travel and share an adventure.

     I have dedicated most of the last decade to art and music.  Rarely doing fan art or covers, I push to create new original work on a regular basis, and I love doing so! But life really knows how to get in the way, and I find myself having to take myself out of art and music more and more to try and make a living.  I do not want a lot; a small little studio somewhere with wifi and a blanket would suffice, and I'm doing all I can to make this come to life by doing something I actually enjoy.

So what will you find here?

2D Art


     I draw a lot and I'm always exploring different style to fit my moods.  Sometimes it's just a doodle. Other times, it's a process that takes hours. There are some pieces that exist strictly for me to explore a coloring or layering technique.  Some art here is less thought out and drawn on a whim.  What I want to start sharing though as well as more art with a "purpose", not just for my own enjoyment.  Concept art for game related reasons is one form I do often, but not focusing on here.  If you're interested in my Game Dev work though, just let me know! Then there's commissions.  Commissions force me to try new things to fit what you want, and it helps me financially.  Making money while drawing makes for a better piece as opposed to "wasting time drawing" when I need to go work to make a living, as it is very stressful to draw this way.  On top of this, I want to draw for my writing more, which leads me to my next focus...

Writing


      I have been writing poetry for as long as I can remember. I'm always experimenting with writing styles along with moving towards short stories, picture books, novels and so on. With your support, I would share drafts regularly (including work that probably won't be released) and maybe even write with some of your suggestions!  My main focuses now are related to my poetry and lyrics.  I have a few different projects happening. One is a finished Long Poem I'm working hard to get published that I haven't shared to the public at all.  The next is a collection of short poems and lyrics.  I have more than enough to make for a thick book, but I am trying to condense and organize it.  To add further appeal, I want artwork for most, if not all of it.

     The catch to writing though is the time it takes.  Writing and illustrating is one thing, but it can take a publishing place half a year to even tell you yes or no.  That is a long time not making any form of promise or profit.  Support on Patreon would give me more time to focus on getting it all done and out there as well as proof to publishers that there is a public interest in my work!

Music
     I am a multi-instrumentalist and I want to put it into use. This includes CD's, game music, and writing songs for other singers and bands. I have already written dozens of original pieces with lyrics and any number of instruments from guitar to melodica, banjo to ukulele, piano to base, and harmonica to acoustic. With more support, I could even write some music for you! I want to put all this music to use. This means properly recorded and put out there for the world to see!

     That goes for all of my art. I need the tools to make my art the best it can be, and I need to share it with everyone. It is horrifying to put something you have created into the public, but it is also an amazing experience. On top of that, I want to share the entire experience as well, and Patreon seems like the perfect way to do it.

     Thank you so much! Even if you choose not to become a Patron, it means everything that you took the time to check out my page. So again, thank you!

Baby steps.  I'm not looking to make it big or anything, just enough to get by ultimiately.  With this goal, I believe we will have enough to start building a small community.  Just enough to get some good conversations going.
