Nick Pitarra is creating Comics and Cartooning Lessons

patrons

I'm Nick Pitarra and I'm here on Patreon offering original art and cartooning lessons to fans of my work. As a comic-book artist, who still works by hand on paper, I create numerous pieces of art for each final illustration. These sketches, roughs, half-completed pages, character sheets, thumbnails, spot illustrations, and doodles are the blueprints and building blocks of my final drawings. And for $5 a month, I will mail you a curated selection of these collectible, one-of-a-kind original art pieces at the end of the year. Every $5 tier and above will receive a MYSTERY TUBE filled with hand-drawn illustrations within a year of their support.

I have 3 main goals for this Patreon page: First, help fund the medical cost associated with starting a family (my biggest concern as a freelance illustrator). Second, to donate any extra revenue to Saint Judes Children's Research Hospital (or a comparable charity) from those MYSTERY TUBES. 3rd, build content for a proper teaching page down the line. 

As a bonus to monthly patrons, you'll have access to exclusive content. I have a degree in art education and enjoy giving cartooning lessons. Along with posting process art for my comic and illustration work, I'll be sharing tutorials, supplies, art critiques, and comic reviews. Learn what it took to rise to the world renowned acclaim of, "One of the Nick's that work with Hickman." 

Thanks for your time, interest, and for supporting of my work.
All The Best,
