Melissa Gay is creating Artwork!

I am an illustrator who loves mysterious journeys, deep space, and the stranger-than-fiction things out there in our own world! After spending my career drawing and painting other people's visions, I am on a quest to learn, explore, and grow as an artist and make worlds of my own. I aspire to be like the protagonist in my "Harvest" painting in the top banner, gathering my inspirations from everywhere and bringing them to you in the form of new art!

New personal art from me will take the form of plein-air landscape studies, imagined space scenes, character portraits, thumbnail sketches, and large oil paintings. You will get to see this content here before I release it anywhere else, and I will even share my inspirations, thought processes, and observations on materials and techniques.

Have questions? Just ask in the comments, and I will answer to the best of my ability! There may even be the first stirrings of process videos-- augh, scary!! But part of the reason I'm doing this Patreon is to face my fears of the unknown and strike off into new territory. Will there be dragons?? Who knows!!! Let's find out together!

If you'd like to help me build my strange new worlds, please join me on my quest and pledge to my Patreon!

You are helping me to create the art I love!!! You have all my thanks for whatever you care to give.

For now my Patreon is Pay What You Like. This may change later on as I figure this whole Patreon thing out, but if there are any changes, I will notify you all in advance. I want this process to be as transparent as possible.

What you get for your patronage is early access to all my personal art and process discussions, as I create it, before I show it anywhere else! Plus I will share with you any story vignettes that play around in my head while I'm creating said art. Welcome to my journey!
