Zelaphasis creating an art journey full of animals and fantasy creatures
Consider this my tip jar! You'll have my sincere thanks and the knowledge that your tips support my convention panels and software subscriptions. Thank you!
You'll get to read exclusive Journey Tips that share my valuable advice and life experiences about making art and running a business.
You'll also get access to downloads and other resources.
Watch the video above to get a better idea.
Completed piecesPatrons always get to see my completed works first before anyone else. Sometimes this is just a few minutes early, other times it can be days or even months early.
Patrons also have the esteemed privilege of seeing any pieces I plan on submitting to art shows for the events I attend before anyone at the event itself.
Postcard ArtOne reward that's unique just for my patrons and can't be purchased anywhere else are my custom postcard ink drawings! As part of traveling, I pick up postcard souvenirs, draw on them, and mail them to you from wherever I am. You get both a drawing you request and a memento from a place I've been.
These rewards are limited, so grab one while you can!
DiariesAfter growing up in Illinois, living in Chicago for my young adult life, spending three years in New Zealand, a year in Australia, and now living in France, I have a lot of stories and photos to share of my travels.
It hasn't always been sunsets and selfies; I write about both the adventurous and mundane, and am very honest when things go wrong.
Journey TipsSo, I'm running a business based around my art. By myself. There's a lot to learn, both on how to create professional-quality art, and how to manage a successful business. I've had my ups and down, but the one constant is that I'm always learning.
As my patron, you'll learn as I learn, and get to read or watch my tutorials about how I create art or run my business, including mistakes to avoid.
...and moreMy Patreon is evolving all the time, and as I grow I have even more things planned to reveal to patrons in the future (check out my GOALS for more details).
My patrons get to see works-in-progress of things I'm working on, learn about my art process when I share what I create, and are even supporting a growing library of video tutorials I'm creating. Patrons are also supporting my new livesteam on Twitch as I improve my setup and define my schedule.
Note: I ask ALL pledges for their shipping address, as even at the $2 level I sometimes ship extra gifts (such as prints or stickers). You could get something fun in your mailbox just by being a part of my journey!
I want my journey to be as amazing for you as it is for me, so I'm open to feedback at any time. This journey is yours, too. So choose your reward, and let's hit the road.
