$6

per Piece
What's the deal?

More info at My Website, but the gist is I'm a self-taught visual artist, pianist, and writer, focuses being miniature realism - photorealism in pencil, digital paint, classical music and creative writing.  I work full-time to get new pieces out while doing commissions, with a novel underway!

This is my Patreon page where I post exclusive updates and content as a way to honor those who honor me.  I'm also at InstagramFacebookDeviantArtTwitterYoutube and some other places.


Specifically, how would my money be used?

Pledges will contribute to the costs of:

- gallery representation
- art fairs
- publication costs
- websites
- drawing media
- digital equipment 
- framing media
- shipping
- cost of time needed for finely detailed work (lol)
- piano maintenance 

Phew.  

What is a commission..?  Can I ask for one?

Yup. Well, first of all:

a commission is when you pay someone for a service.  In this case, I would be providing a creative service in the form of an illustration, bit of music, or short-story, to you-- whatever you ask for, really.  The difference on this page is that Patrons do receive discounts when they would otherwise have to pay in full.  

Should I pledge?

That would be great, but I appreciate feedback and support however and wherever it comes in. Thanks for visiting this page either way, and I'll see you around!

Pledge $1 or more per Piece
Pledging $1 gives you access to top-secret (sort of) stuff I don't post anywhere else, like the time-stamps of a laborious painting, their tutorials, and miscellaneous pieces I generally don't share. :j
Pledge $4 or more per Piece
If you're interested in commissioning me at all, these next packages are for you.  :3  Pledging $4 earns you 1/4 off of your first commission to me, whether that be a creative writing, a digital painting, a little composition, or a personalized drawing.
Goals
$6 of $10 per Piece
I like playing recording my music, and would like to invest in higher-end equipment to enhance the quality of my videos, like fancy mics, cameras, etc.
