About

For 2 decades I have been working as a professional artist and illustrator in the gaming industry. I've had the pleasure of working on amazing Role Playing Games for Serenity, Supernatural, Battlestar Galactica, Dragonlance, and much more. I've done coloring books for Colouring Heaven, an art tutorial book on how to draw fairies for Walter Foster, and a card game called Maiden's Quest for WizKids. Somewhere in there I snuck in my own art and traveled to conventions like Dragon Con and Comic Con. I studied under Larry Elmore and have done a little bit of everything which you can see on my website at lindsayarcher.com.

That all sounds impressive, right? Seems like I "made it". Well, sadly, art is not a consistent income and a starving artist is not a cliché, that's life, my life... which you must know to some extent or you wouldn't be reading this.

At the end of the day, I'm a single mother trying to make ends meet, working other jobs, and trying to sneak art in around a busy life. I would love to just be able to create full time, or not worry about how I'm going to pay rent, and realize that's a pipe dream. But I'm hoping with you as patrons, perhaps, I might be able to afford to do what I was born to do a little bit more. Every day I have a million ideas, projects, plot lines, etc. running through my head, but have to put them aside. With a little help, I could afford the time to breathe life into these projects inside me, calling to be let out. I hope you will consider contributing. I have two Children's books written, I just need to illustrate. I have one script that I really think the world would love, backed by the opinions of some of my professional writer friends. (Why must people always love me for my brain?) There's a stack of unfinished oil paintings that have had to wait and be put aside for paying work time and time again. The dreams and ideas collect dust and forgotten without the support to make them happen.

As the artists in the Renaissance needed the Medici family and other patrons like them, to fund create some of the most historically significant works of art of their age. Artists need that today as well. Thank you for being a patron and supporting the arts, even if you choose not to support me. The world needs art, artists, and art appreciators. Thanks for being a part of that. Best Wishes!

I'm working on this anyway, but I have set for the goal to finish the Celestial series of the Zodiac. Prints will be available on the website so discount codes will apply to purchase prints.
