About Mike Frenier

My name is Mike Frenier, and I have been drawing and painting since I was a little kid. My dad used to bring me to work with him and I would sit around waiting for him to finish, doodling away the hours, filling page after page with all kinds of images that haunted my imagination. At first my main interest was in demons, monsters, and the grotesque, but as I grew older I became obsessed with the surreal and questionable side of the imagination. My beginning two sources of inspiration were Esao Andrews and James Jean, two artists who worked quite differently but both of which filled their horizons with dark and strange images. It wasn't until around college when I started looking at art more academically and adjusting my focus towards learning foundation. I spent 2 long and hard years studying art while taking classes at a community college. I was able to accomplish things I never thought I would be able to do and for that I am proud, but that journey doesn't stop there. I am gathering inspiration, formulating an artistic taste, and searching for my true form of expression artistically. I want to take what I've learned in this time and push the boundaries of my imagination. I feel as if I am still just an egg that has yet to hatch. So, if you will join me in this journey, any support financially and morally is going to go a long way towards helping me progress and get to the goals which I would like to reach. There are classes I want to take but can't even begin to afford, any funds that don't go towards helping me survive and pay for art supplies will be going into savings to help me move forward and expand my education.

This experience with Patreon is new for me and it is likely that how I approach this will undergo changes as I go along. If you have any suggestions as to what you would like to see on here let me know! 

Thanks for stopping by and being a potential supporter of my work!
Goals
$0 of $50 per month
At this amount I will have developed a steady first step in my freelance career. When I reach this goal I will do a strawpoll for my Patrons and send the winner an original drawing of their choosing. This is, of course, a second straw poll over the one that I already promise to patrons each month. :)
