I'm an animator!  I make art and cartoons - sometimes for my own YouTube channel, and sometimes for other folks.  I've made original cartoons, parodies, and have done animations for folks like Game Grumps, Ninja Sex Party, The Completionist, and Eddsworld. 

My current projects are Rebb, an original dark fantasy/comedy/adventure cartoon series, as well as various short animations featuring step-by-step looks at the creation process!  I also occasionally do collabs and animations for other rad creators.



Because YouTube is not a stable source of money.


Animation is a lot of work and takes a long time to make, and YouTube ad money just doesn't sustain content like that.  YouTube is set up to reward channels that can put out a TON of content CONSTANTLY, and with 10+ minute videos at that - examples being video game commentary channels and vloggers, who can consistently post several lengthy videos each day.  

Animation makes very little money on YouTube, and if I don't find a more stable source of money, I will not be able to make animations for the internet anymore.

Patreon is a solution.  If I get enough Patrons, I can officially make animation my full-time job and continue to make new and better projects for my viewers to enjoy.  I could also potentially increase my budget and purchase new equipment, and even hire other artists to help with my projects!

A successful Patreon means I'd get to keep making cartoons - and make them more ambitious than before!



A whole buncha stuff!

  • Access to my exclusive Patron blog, with behind-the-scenes updates on my projects every week!
  • 10 exclusive wallpapers!  5 for mobile (1440x2560) and 5 for desktop (2560x1440).  
  • Downloads of music I've made for my videos!
  • Downloadable Toon Boom files of scenes from my animations! Open them up in Toon Boom Harmony and see how my cartoons are put together! 
  • Access to Patron-only polls!  Take part in votes on the subjects of art and animation content!
And you get ALL of this no matter how much you decide to donate!  I want to make it very clear that just one dollar a month is a HUGE help, so I hope these rewards will convince you!



Will you still post updates and art on social media?
Yes!  I won't be cutting my Twitter followers out of the loop, but my Patrons will get updates much more frequently and in more detail, with more exclusive behind-the-scenes material that won't be posted elsewhere.

How do I get the downloadable rewards?
They will be distributed through Dropbox!  I will link the rewards in posts in the Patron blog.

Note: if you plan on using the Toon Boom animation files, you will need to download the entire folders for the animations.  There will be lots of files you won't open yourself, but they need to be kept together in order to open the Toon Boom file.  Once you have them downloaded, look for the file with the extension ".xstage" and open that and you should be set!

What art software/equipment do you use?
Toon Boom Harmony 15 Premium for animation, Clip Studio Paint and Adobe Photoshop CC for paintings and other drawings, Audacity and Adobe Audition CC for audio editing, Adobe Premiere CC for video editing, FL Studio for music creation, and a Wacom Cintiq 22HD drawing tablet.

Will my version of Toon Boom work with your files?
I use Toon Boom Harmony 15 Premium.  As far as I know, versions older than 14 can't open my files, but Harmony 14/15 Essentials and Advanced can open them - they just won't be able to use the Premium-exclusive features such as the Node View.

Are you going to make more Kinda Reviews?
At the moment, no.  I want to focus on making animation-focused projects, and I'm not really passionate about Kinda Reviews anymore.  There's a million game review shows on YouTube, and I'd rather put my energy towards projects that better show off my animation and storytelling.

Are you still going to post your videos to YouTube?
Yes!  My finished videos will go on my YouTube channel just like always.



I hope my art interests you, and I hope you'll consider becoming my patron!  Either way, thanks a bunch for stopping by!

Goals
$351 of $3,000 per month
If I manage to hit this, I'll be able to take care of most day-to-day needs solely through my animation - meaning I get to keep making cartoons as my job!  That'd be SWEET.
