Straya Obscura is creating Paper Crafts

per paper craft
In September of 2009, I created for a traditional illustration class a handmade, pop-up book inspired, paper craft... the first of many! It was at that exact moment, in between the "Wow!" and "That's so cool!" that I realized... paper crafts are where my art is meant to go! I attended my first Japanese culture/anime convention (Anime Weekend Atlanta) in 2010 with my paper crafts in hand and no idea what I was doing! Into the start of the convention I could not get away from my table because of the crowds of people who couldn't help but stop by and see what these new things were!

Now here we are beginning 2016 and my paper crafts are continuing to grow momentum! I've begun traveling to conventions in the southeast (with HUGE success), sending art out to conventions as far as Texas, and shipping original commissions all the way to Japan! This is HUGE, and it is all thanks to you... my fans! I want to continue doing these paper crafts, and continue to improve on what I do with them! I do hope you will join and support me on this journey, thank you!

Why support me, you ask?
Well... other than because you are freaking awesome, I am hoping to move away from my job in retail and do my art full time. This is a dream many artists strive for, but few can achieve and I know that very well! BUT, does that stop me from going forward? HECK NO! So I've come to Patreon to ask another favor of my fans (that's right, you awesome person you!) and art family for even the smallest bit of support in the ability to bring you the coolest freakin' things that can be done with paper!

What is in store for us supporters?
I'm continuing on a daily basis to iron out all of the details. But right now I have a plan to release a monthly piece/completed project, I only intend for my supporters to be charged once a month. Once I reach certain milestones I am going to begin releasing sketches, and feedback requests to lower tier donators. I will move all the way up to printable "color-and-build-your-own" paper crafts, that include instructions and materials needed for the higher tiers! I am going to work hard to make it worth your while, I promise!
