Hello, internetfriends! Melinda Farrar here. A little while back, I embarked on a mission to high-five my fears and French-kiss my anxiety in the hopes of launching myself into a new phase of creative exploration and productivity. It's been wonderful and terrifying, and I've done some of the best artwork (illustration, printmaking, painting, poodle drawings, crafting, sculpting, etc) of my life thus far. 
And I am going to keep doing it!
I have often thought about the talented musicians in my family who, in between gigs, occasionally play for tips in restaurants and bars, and busk in city parks. I have often wished for a way that I could do something like that myself with my artwork (that didn't involve me hauling all my supplies and 300-pound letterpress down the sidewalk and pulling prints for spare change). And suddenly, here it is: 
www.patreon.com !
It's all very 21st century... It's the on-line equivalent of dropping a dollar in a jar and letting the artist know that you think there is value in what they are doing and making. So I thought I'd give it a shot.
I'm hoping that joining Patreon will be a great way to make my works more available to my family & friends and generally more visible to the rest of the world. It is also my hope that, with the financial help from online patrons, I will be able to take money gained from one project and use it to fund my next project. My artwork could actually become self-sustaining! A dream come true.
The absolute best thing about all of this is the opportunity for me to reward my patrons with original works and prints. You send me some dollars and I send you some art!  It's a win/win! 
Click on the "Become a patron" button on the top left of this page to check out the cool stuff I'll send you to reward you for your patronage.

Okay. Thank you for reading all my words. Have a wonderful day!
