Greetings Humans!

I am here, the experimenter/adventure art alien, and I am asking for assistance for this art journey. My gratitude to those suporting me thus far..I am still kind of getting the hang of the nuts and bolts of this Patreon thing, so again, I appreciate the patience. 

"So what's Patreon" you may ask?  Well, if you're just showing up here for the first time, here's the verbal download...

You are funding human innovation and original thought:

Patreon, like Kickstarter, allows people to pledge money to support a large project. But unlike Kickstarter, Patreon support is ongoing; patrons agree to make small, regular contributions (such as $5/month or $?(your choice)/month), and I receive a monthly cheque to help me with my project.  If you're a fan of mine and want to support me in the creation of new art shows/webcasts/theatre/toy making/videos/blogs/performance-art/projects and more random, unpredictable art-things, this is the place, as you can see. These things will become more varied as we go along. The more support, the better, and who knows what I will create next. Installations, animations. MAYHEM? Surprises are grand.  Feedback, and ideas are welcome.

 Your loving and brilliant support is greatly appreciated. Community is essential to the arts, and essential to human innovations.This site is an opportunity to be directly involved with me, and in my creative process, through art patronage.

It's time to take new and less conventional approaches to how you interact with the arts. By helping me even a tiny bit, you are helping to make the art, and depending on your level of commitment, occasionally a gift or 2 may makes it's way to you as thanks for that support, and of course your name will be added to the list of sponsors that help me, no matter the contribution level. But to do this I require support from those who appreciate what I do, and are willing to help with the nuts and bolts of what builds the foundations on which creative humans stand. 
I am committed to what I do.  Art is my calling.
Depending on the project size and sposorship amount, that can lead to an artsy reward. And as a contributor, you will get partial credit for helping to make the projects happen.


Backstory:
I have been working in fine arts, and film, for 8 years. I became ill from chronic Lyme disease (from a tick bite), which, if you know much about it, can have far reaching effects on ones ability to do a 9-5 like normal folk.. So It's made me rethink how to work and interface in this world, and how I'd like to work, and to focus on what I can do, not what I can't. So, I am in a position where I have to tailor my work life to fit my health. Working as an artist and creative is what fits best, and again, you'd be helping me with that. So I can learn what is still possible for me to achieve, despite the setbacks.

 I'm planing some larger projects and, I want to be able to explore those big ideas with some funding, and have you a part of that process. The by-product may be high quality limited edition merchandise, or an installation. Rest assured, It will be wacky and creative.

About the funds:

I will be putting 100% of monies from these contributions, toward supplies for arts endevours. I will also do project specific posts, which you can contribute to if you wish.
 I do a lot of projects  where I am scrounging and repurposing, using 'environmentally responsible' methods. Sometimes costs are UNAVOIDABLE, but you can help with that part.

I do art shows pretty regularily, but largely regional. However, larger projects may have the possibility of touring to other places, which you may also wish to be involved in, depending on the project and your personal interest in it. 

Let's experiment together!

It's a collaboration between us. And whether it's $5 or $5000, all of it goes toward the process.
Every patron who's supporting me is important to this community, I'm glad you found me here.

...THANK YOU.

Goals
1 of 100 patrons
Hey there helpers all.
Once I reach my goal of 100 patrons, I will start my project for a kids book called "Where ideas come from", which will eventually also potentially maybe become a podcast...because I know plenty of adults who want to know the same thing.
