Hello Patreon,

My name is Matthew G. Lewis and I recently moved from Seattle, Washington to Madrid, Spain in order to pursue a passion project inspired by the work of Joseph Campbell.

I’m here to explore the darker side of European myth and history, first-hand.  Why European myth and history?  Because Joseph Campbell studied and taught the subject in an interesting way.   Why the darker side?  Because all the interesting stuff happens in the dark.

I’m going to travel to locales around Europe to learn those darker stories and then come back to Madrid to create images to share with you - images that remind us of our deep, dark psychological history.

Your financial support will help fund my journeys (food, lodging, travel, etc.) and in return, I’ll be documenting my journeys and producing an image from each trip to then share with you.  As support grows, so will my ability to travel more frequently and further.

So, thanks for checking out my page!  You can see some samples of my work below or on my website (lostkeep.com).  If my project sounds interesting, please consider supporting the endeavor.  Also, please consider signing up for my mailing list so that internet algorithms don't prevent you from from seeing updates (link).

Best
Matt
