My name is Charles or Cidio as I'm known in the art world, and I am here to invite you to invest in my creative endeavors through Patreon. Since January 2013 I have been publishing my Calligraphy creations on Tumblr, as well as my instructional guides for curating superior art exhibitions. With your support I hope to be able to keep practicing and perfecting my craft, and hopefully pay some of my bills in the process.
What is Scribe By Night?
I am the Editor and a featured artist of one of the most diverse, talented, and creative art exhibitions in the world Scribe By Night. Although it is impressive with more than 20,000 subscribers overall, I am not here to ask for patrons to support that project. I am only here to invite your support for my own creations, which I choose to publish on that platform. Which is for now mostly beginner level Calligraphy, in addition to my monthly "letter from the editor" updates which are a continuing tutorial series for how to curate the best possible art blog. That alone as a "behind the scenes" is more than worth your patronage and is full of valuable information.
Why do I need your help?
I dream of being able to work online and being able to take my job with me anywhere I want to go, while still helping to support my family at home. I may not not be good enough to sell my art yet, so my best chance for success is if I can find a few hundred kind and generous people who are proud to support my creations by donating a few dollars per month to me on Patreon. If you are reading this, then I am hoping one of those people is going to be you.
