Welcome to my Patreon!
My name is Risha Kapoor; as an artist, I go by Thay Rustback! I’m a freelance artist and my passion is creating images of animals, both natural wildlife and anthropomorphized characters. I love working in both digital and traditional media, including but not limited to ink, watercolor and acrylic paint. I also enjoy designing fun items that people can wear or display, like lanyards and charms.

Why do I need your support?
Right now, I rely heavily on commissioned work; I love the work I do and my clients are such a pleasure to work with, but I often work long hours - and often through the weekend. I very rarely get to work on personal projects, as I move right from one commission to the next. My goal is to be able to reduce my work week to a more reasonable 40-50 hours.

I've recently been more interested in designing items that many people can enjoy; lanyards, wristbands, prints, etc. I have so many ideas I want to bring to life. I love creating stuff that people can use to express themselves; stuff you can wear, put on your backpack, hang on your walls! 

I want to use my Patreon to create more merchandise. Here's where you come in! Your pledges will help fund the time it takes to design fun new items and also the cost associated with production. 

Items you can help me design include, but are not limited to:

- Stickers
- Stationery
- Prints
- Lanyards
- Wristbands
- Charms
- Enamel pins

Bigger goals include:
- T-shirts & tank tops
- Plushes 
- Etched shot glasses
- Vinyl figures

With many products having high minimum order quantities or set up fees, I've needed to limit my exploration of possible products. So the items listed above are by no means the only items you may be helping me create! I encourage all patrons to let me know what they want to see me make!

Your pledges will also mean I can spend more time researching and designing, so the possibility of unique new products is that much stronger!

So what do you get out of it?

All Patrons will have access to work that typically never gets posted anywhere, even on Twitter. This includes sketches, thumbnails, works in progress and studies! I may even post tutorials or process videos!

My main focus is merchandise, so I want to send out goodies to my wonderful Patrons each month! I am offering several options for monthly "gift boxes". You will always receive products worth more than your pledge, but the more pledged each month, the more your box will be worth! Imagine how fun it'll be to open a box full of fun, brand new items each month! 

There are also a few slots of varying value for art. You can always opt out of receiving letters/postcards if you prefer not to receive them - I understand the need for discretion sometimes and won't be offended!

With enough pledges, I'd also love to make some Patreon exclusive items, as a thank you for your support.

I'm really excited to get you guys on board helping me design cool new stuff! Every pledge, no matter how "small", is appreciated so much and brings us closer to each new goal. Thank you so incredibly much for your support; you guys are the reason I keep doing what I do!

Note: As fair warning please be aware that there is a healthy amount of diaper/cub/ABDL content! It's all cute and clean - nothing I would hide from my mother - but I don't want new Patrons to be startled/sideswiped by this content. If you don't like this kind of content, please be polite and either don't say anything or don't pledge. Thanks for understanding! 




Rules for Art Rewards:
- You have two choices for art rewards - stickers or art! 
- If you want to combine rewards, you MUST let me know ahead of time so we can work out details and I can plan for the time it takes.
- Please send an idea for your art by the 15th of the month! After this time, you will receive an artistic liberty piece of art as a reward.

Sticker specific guidelines:
- All stickers in a group should be all the same character!
- Waist up, single character stickers

Goals
$746 of $1,000 per month
Right now, I have to order lanyards and wristbands in large batches, about every 3-5 months.

Once we hit this number, I can order and ship the new merch monthly, instead of every 3-5 months.
