Rhonda Libbey is creating an art book: Visions From the Dream Diary

patrons





My name is Rhonda, and I am an artist currently living and working in Western Pennsylvania. Not far away I grew up in an old 10 room farm house that had lovely art nouveau style in every pillar, picture frame, and stick of wood. The artists who contributed to that art period were absolutely rock stars to me. When I was 6 my brother got the D&D red box set when it first came out and I was blown away! Holy crow that box cover, am I right!? I mean... I already thought I wanted to be an artist, but from that moment on I was certain that I wanted to do fantasy illustration  - and for years I have! I've had the good fortune to work on very cool games and books. Some notable ones are Call of Cthulhu, Cthulhu Wars, The Gods War, Starship Troopers, Conan, and I even got to do some cartooning work in Red Dragon Inn. 

Art is more than any one project for me though, it has the power to translate an idea from one person's mind to someone else. A painting can be an arrangement of color and form that can help someone feel exactly what the artist feels and it can tell an entire story with a single image. That's really exciting stuff to me! Painting and creating a visual narrative is my passion. I love to create things that inspire, something that helps bring an idea to life in a unique way. 




My main project at this time is Visions From the Dream Diary. I have selected entries from my very own dream diary and I am going to make an art book from them! I have been recording my dreams for many years, most of them are like finished short stories. 

I'm just starting the book now and I thought some people might really enjoy seeing this as it develops! That's what I plan to do here, exclusively on Patreon! I will document artwork from beginning to end and even share some art techniques that I have learned or created myself. I plan to post at least once a week and share a video that reveals some of my secrets and techniques once a month! I am brand spanking new here, so I'm sure things will change a bit as we go along. I definitely would like to hear from you about what you would like to see and what your opinions are!

Oh, and one more thing. The 8"x10" gicleé prints I have as rewards? They are a only available right here on Patreon! Though I do have 12"x16" prints available for sale in my Etsy shop, the smaller size is only available here.  



What is Patreon?
Patreon is a platform where people who appreciate an artists work can show their support in the form of monetary love. We all have expenses, right? Patron is kind of like a tip jar. In return for your patronage you get an exclusive look behind the scenes. If you are a first time Patron you can find answers to most of your questionshere FAQ. Becoming a Patron of the Arts is really simple and you can adjust your pledge whenever you want!

So that's basically it. I'm new to Patreon and this page is evolving. Tiers will expanding or changing as we go. I would also like to offer Ask Me Anything sessions (maybe on Google Hangout or Skype?) once I get into the swing of things. I think this is going to be lots of fun! Thank you so much for being here and liking my art!
