Kit Whistleris creating Honest Art from the Road

You, fellow dreamers, bring all of this to life. Thank you for making it possible for JR and I to create ongoing art, to begin creating videos, to spread the messages we’re passionate about, and to continue creating what we envision: a brighter, better, more idle world for all of us!

About Kit Whistler
As most of you know, my partner JR and I have been traveling the backroads of the USA for seven years now, rambling from ocean to mountain to desert and creating art about what we find out here on the cracked byways and faint dirt roads of the USA.
We’ve been sharing our art from the road through our blog and social media accounts for over 6 years now, and it’s been a blast. I, for one, never expected to find true community through this little project of ours, as we shared our thoughts and photos from the road, yet here we are, connecting with and learning alongside you guys in this crazy place called the internet.
New Year, New Projects on the Horizon
Now, after publishing a book and zines and thousands of Instagram posts, we’re itching to launch projects that are bigger and more ambitious than anything we’ve done before. We are in the midst of initiating a number of exciting new fun-filled ventures, ones that we believe will impact the world for good and create the colorful world we’d like to see.
Your Support will Make This Possible
This is where you guys come in. I have this vision of releasing new, long-form art every week, and in order to do so, I rely on the support of you, my fellow idlers and dreamers who believe in the art and message and vision created by JR and me. On the sides of this website are tiers at which you can support the release of our art, and we’d be so honored if you did. Without you, they’ll remain nothing more than hopeful dreams By supporting, you will help us transform all of these sparkly new projects into reality.
As a huge Thank You for your support, you’ll receive access to my private Do-Nothing Club, where we idlers can gather in small numbers to commune and discuss the matters that weigh heavy on our peaceful hearts. I’ll also be mailing out gifts for you all to say thanks: little tokens from me, such as handmade art, small-group hangouts with me, heartfelt notes sent from the road...as well as lots of new art: extra essays, videos, and blog posts released for only you, our patrons.
Projects We'll Launch With Your Help
There are so many projects we are launching in 2019. With your support, all of this will be possible: I’ll be creating cartoons and essays, all released on a weekly basis. We’re in the process of kicking off our brand-new YouTube channel, which contains a Vlog from the road, a cooking show, and an upcoming series on Travel and Idleness. We are also ready to finally make a dream of mine come true: an Idle Theory Podcast, which will delve deep into the world of doing nothing.
Thank you for Your Patronage. You Guys are the Best!
JR and I live to create art. And we create to transform the world into the magical place we see our minds. We are travelers and artists equally, and the honor of sharing with you guys means more than you know. Thank you for your support, for making it possible for JR and me to share our mission, and to transform the world into a better, brighter, more optimistic place...a place in which we can all Simply Be through Idleness.
I have so much leaking out of my soul, and I can’t wait to share it with you all.
Thank you for all of your ongoing support. Sending you gratitude, love, and lots of light.
