Hello, everyone and welcome to the Kawaii Sammich Patreon page! (Yay!)

If you're a fan of mine and you're here as a result, thanks for stopping on in to support me as an artist! If you're just now learning about me, welcome regardless and thank you for your interest!

For those of you who don't know about Patreon:
Patreon is a place for folks to support their favorite content creators financially, whether on a month by month basis or per creation. For my specific Patreon, I've decided to go with a monthly payment. With these monthly contributions, it allows for the artists that you support to continue creating the things that they do best and also improve on their craft. With support also comes advantages. Depending on the tier, Patrons get set advantages that are listed on the awards section of this page. These are available as essentially a huge thanks for the support that you give.

A bit about the Kawaii Sammich:
The name of the Kawaii Sammich came to me accidentally. I used to work under the pseudonym of Krysania. Someone called me a croissantwich, which eventually turned into Krysammich, and then again into Sammich. The Kawaii Sammich was so intrinsic to the evolution of who I was as a person, so the name stuck. I always believed in the evolution of ideas, and it fit me perfectly.

A bit about my work:
I am an interdisciplinary media artist and musician whose work primarily revolves around technology, virtual relationships, and the constantly fluctuating boundaries between physical and digital realms. I work in a variety of media and have struggled for a long time to figure out who I truly was as an artist as a result. I began with theater early on in life, side by side with music. These two things have always been the driving force behind why I love to create. To me, it is imperative that artists share their stories for the benefit of the world. Stories help to open our eyes to other perspectives, and help shape the culture that we reside within.

As time passed, I got my BFA in Cinematic Arts: Production and eventually my MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts and Media. With these two degrees, I learned how to create meaningful and powerful films as a result. I also learned how to code and work within virtual reality and virtual world environments as a way to create my own style of machinima, which would later contribute to my current aesthetic.

Why I am on Patreon:
Unfortunately, with graduation also comes a loss of resources. After graduating from my programs, I found myself with a well of knowledge but no tools to be able to exercise them. As an artist, it was almost as if I had all of my paintbrushes taken away from me. Being a media artist, it's a little more difficult as well, because to continue being a media artist, you have to find a way to keep up financially with the influx of software and equipment required to make the kind of work that you're meant to create. Not only is there always a learning curve, but to go from having an entire library full of computers, cameras, and other kinds of equipment to suddenly having nothing was a very difficult transition.

When I discovered Patreon, I had actually been sitting on it for quite some time. I had been inspired by Amanda Palmer's TEDx speech about giving and figured that eventually I would give it a shot. She believed in the kindness of others to believe in the work that she was doing and gave herself to her audience in a way. I wanted to be able to do the same. All I have ever wanted was for my audience to be able to enjoy and even eventually participate in the work that I do. This kind of interaction and relationship between artist and audience has been something I have been striving to achieve for a long time.

So with this Patreon, one of my biggest goals is to start working up toward having the equipment that I need to be able to tell and sing my stories again, starting with writing songs, then moving my way up to getting a new camera to make films, then work on acquiring virtual reality equipment to make films for you all in 3D, and wherever else this Patreon may take me. But, I can't do it without you. This is why I am here, asking.
