I’m Aaron Acevedo–Pinnacle Entertainment Group's Origins and ENnie award winning art director and Sigil Entertainment Group's creative director. I've been working in the tabletop games industry since 1999, and you can find my work in games based on many popular properties such as A Song of Ice and Fire, Babylon 5, Call of Cthulhu, Conan, Deadlands, Flash Gordon, Lankhmar, Rifts,Torg Eternity, Unknown Armies, Wheel of Time, and World of Darkness. I've contributed to hundreds of books and supplements, from writing to graphic design, layout, illustrations, cartography, and more. I love bringing other creators visions to life. But I would love to share my own creations as well and that's where you come in.
Patreon is an awesome way to help support the creators whose work you enjoy. It's a funding platform that is similar to Kickstarter, with one major difference: instead of giving one large pledge towards a big project, with Patreon you can give regular support to the creators you enjoy who are creating content on an ongoing basis.
What am I using Patreon for?
I’m using Patreon to connect with gamers, aspiring designers and artists, and fellow creators to share ideas, artwork, maps, and to create new games.
