Welcome!

Thank you so much for checking out my Patreon page! I’m looking forward to longevity as an artist and designer and those whom support me are the key. I’ve been wanting to keep a more consistent practice of creating so thank you again for allowing me to continue by providing me the means to do what I love AND eat. Currently, I’m a Doctoral student and am accruing debt in order to learn. I’d like to balance the stress of that, after graduation, by developing an income with my art.

My Current Project:
Ink-saving friendly, Printable Tarot
I’ve been interested in creating a deck for YEARS. I was recently looking at printable decks because I was curious about what was out there. I found many files that took an incredible amount of ink, and unless the files would be taken to a third-party printer, it wasn’t very economic for those of us DIY-ers. Or there were decks that were so simple they were hard to read intuitively and would need quite a bit of memorization. So, I thought, why not create a deck that was minimalistic enough to save on ink, yet complex enough to capture the essence of each card without purely using traditional symbols?

Voilá! The Thought-Space Tarot


How does the current Project affect the Tiers? Good question!
  • Essentially all the goodies will be based off of the current project that I’m working on.
  • “The Patrons” will get to see what designs I’m thinking of before working on them.
  • “Peanut Gallery” will be helping me figure out what tweaks the designs need
  • “Freebies” Will be getting PDF files of each card as it is finalized and as I finish a suit or Arcana will get the PDF file with all of them together.
  • “Card Connoisseurs” will be getting printed cards that may have different back designs or different positions of art work on the front or different face designs altogether. I’d like to get feedback on the finished “look.” There may be different card sizes and I’ll be telling you where I got them.
  • oEventually, as my Patreon becomes more successful, I’d love to experiment with different card stocks and finishes. Once I finish the design, I aim to create a physical deck.
  • “Muses” Polls may not necessarily all be about the current project. I want to hear about the printables YOU would like to see.

What else do I do?
  • I enjoy colored pencils and like to create paintings that lean more towards the Macabre
  • Planner pages, Journal pages, tracking pages, I have my own disc planner and enjoy creating templates for myself and share the files!
  • Paper Clay Sculptures
  • Beaded and wire Jewelry
  • Crochet

What else would I eventually like to do?
  • Video tutorials and worksheets on various topics that includes evidence-based research. Interesting topics with a psychological and neuroscience edge. Such as where and when Dreams occur and how to interpret them for yourself, Habit changes, Restructuring unproductive thought patterns, Mindfulness classes from the point-of-view of physiology.
  • Know your body and health cheat-sheets
  • And I’ll probably add more!

Thanks again for your time and support!

Goals
$0 of $30 per month
If I can get 4 new patreons at the 5$ tier, I can start adding at least 1 print to send at the 5$ level and automatically set the 12$ tier to 3 prints. I have already been mailing the Card Connoisseurs at least 3 prints and surprises :), and I can keep it up!
 
I've decided that I really enjoy mailing stuff out to people and would like to do more!
