Hey people! My name is Patricio and I'm an Illustrator and a Musician dedicated to compose and arrange Video Game Music!
Thank you so much for checking out my Patreon page!
I'm a graphic designer and a 2D animator in my professional life, but since I started to learn music production in a selftaught way and when I arranged my first VGMusic cover in 2009 as "Pokérus", my life is actually focused in playing and producing video game music covers and arrangements in different styles. I'm also an illustrator, I love drawing since I have memory, but I've never powered those skills professionally until now. That's why I fused my Channel "PokérusVGMusic" with "Pokérus Illustrations". Now you can simply find me by the name of "Pokérus Project". Feel free to check out my Professional Portfolio for job interests.
WHAT AM I DOING NOW?
I have a mid-time job and a few illustration/graphic design jobs ocassionally, but I want to dedicate full time into Video Game Music composition as an arranger on digital stores or into illustration for games and other nerd stuff (aaaand why not both? That would be great, too!). I also play my game music arrangements in conventions and videogames-related events in my country, Chile. Because of that, one of my many dreams is to play my VGMusic live in other countries and meet my friends outside Chile. I just adore the fact that I can hit the stage and play some tunes from my favorite games for other people! :)
Honestly, I never thought on Patreon for many years because VGMusic and my Youtube channel was always a kind of hobby to me. But then I realized that music and illustrations will be always my true passion and I decided that I want to live doing it! Being a freelance "cover artist" or illustrator it's so hard on the formal market, especially where I come from (Santiago, Chile, South America) where pop art and culture in general are almost unrecognized so, platforms like Patreon are perfect to enjoy with the community, I want to retribute directly to my potential fans in the best way I can to thank them for all the unvaluable support!
WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES?
- Living Costs, so I can continue making VGMusic and Illustrations for you.
- Equipment improvement, so I can upgrade my musical gear, or my filming stuff to make better videos
- Traveling! Maybe I can play live VGMusic in your country/city someday. Who knows?
Of course, you are not forced to pledge money in order to hear new music or see some new illustrations from my channel. I'll be making what I love to do with even more energy and determination than ever, but if you wanna help me to improve my material, even $1 count! And I'll be absolutely thankful for your support. As an artist, seeing people that support my art (Music, Illustrations, etc.) and enjoy it, is by far one of the things that makes me happy.
And please, send me a message if you have any questions! I'll be glad to help! :)
