Hello. I'm Murphy Blue, and I'm a Rope Monk.

I travel around; teaching what I know about Japanese influenced rope bondage. I've been doing this since 2000, and I have been lucky enough to become one of more respected rope artists in the northeastern US. I have taught rope and performed at numerous rope conventions across the country. I have done rope for fashion magazines, music videos, and even a movie. I believe there is a spiritual side to the rope, and do my best to help people learn how to cultivate those facets of bondage as well.

I also do a bit of rope inspired art. I’ve been working on photos and artistic photo manipulations, as well as performance videos and stories. We do a bondage calendar every year that folks seem to like. I’m also working on a few rope education projects including a DVD video series and possibly an instructional book. But to get these projects moving into high gear, I need your help.

I would use the funds from this Patreon to help pay for equipment, models, occasional wardrobe and sets. Most importantly, it will pay for time. My time. I wont need to take every single gig no matter what it is just to make ends meet. I could invest some of that time into these new projects. I could plan some time to work on those instructional books. Or to film a set of videos. Or to research and rehearse a few performances in advance to make them even better. Or my next bondage photo book.

As well as the incentives posted, every 3 months (and sometimes more often), I’ll be having random giveaways of stuff. It might be some of my older rope that was used in performances. It may be a fresh new kit. It may be a calendar or a print or a t-shirt. Whatever it is, it will be cool and my way of telling you thank you for supporting me in bringing rope art and education wherever I can take it.

Help me save the world… one knot at a time.

Goals

If I can make this monthly, I can invest some serious time into R&D for rope and performance. I can also upgrade the incentives for all levels. More for me means more for *you*
