Deven Rue Cartography

You might have seen my work on Critical Role, The Triangle Table, Nerdolopedia and more.  I make fantasy maps...highly detailed fantasy maps.  I spend the majority of my time creating maps or the art associated with them like borders, compasses, sea monsters, vessels, etc.  I'm sort of obsessed but you'll find that out soon enough if you haven't done so already.  But let's get to the meat of this Patreon thingy, shall we?

SUPPORTING MY PATREON AND OUR COMMUNITY

I'm not just making maps and you're not just supporting an artist.  You're also helping support and grow the RPG community.  Every pledge goes towards helping me continue to create art on a full time basis.  Because my art is already paid for by patrons, I post the black & white versions of my art on my website as downloads available to everyone.  Only the colored versions are available to patrons as downloads. This makes maps, tavern signs & stock art more available and more affordable for the community in general.  It's much easier to have 100 people pay $1 to help me create art than it is to ask one person to pay the full $100.  It also means that 100 help hundreds of people enjoy that art instead of 1 person getting it only for themselves.  This spreading the cost of art over the community not only means more people get to enjoy it, but it also means that I'm not working for less than minimum wage...er...or at least that's the goal.

WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU PLEDGE!
When you pledge to my Patreon, you're getting access to my entire body of work thus far!  Every map and every illustration, available for download.  Use them to create props, fan art, maps, spruce up your website, create streaming overlays, etc.  

You also get discounts to shops like Tabletop Loot and Cantrip Candles as well as my own website!
