I will release one video per week on YouTube. Usually on Wednesdays.

My name is Howard Simpson and I am a illustrator. I love drawing and have been doing it since I was two years old. Graduated from Arts High School in Newark, NJ and Tyler School of Art and have been making videos since 2008. I’ve been making video tutorials about using software to create art. I’ve been getting good response and will continue making more and they will always be available for free. I enjoy sharing my knowledge.

I’ve also been an instructor at The Kubert School.

Abba Studios produces mostly video tutorials about creating digital art with software. I want everyone to be able to create art, if that is their desire.

Pledges will help me get equipment and software. Most importantly, it will help me to spend more time researching, testing, writing, drawing, recording and editing the videos. It’s challenging to find the time do tutorials while securing freelance art assignments. It will help me to keep a regular schedule. It can take a day or two to draw, record and edit each video.

You can use the All Posts feed and I can get to know you better and you can get to know me and other patrons.

You can start being a patron right now for as little as $1 per video made. You pay at the beginning of the month. Each month I give you rewards for your patronage. Rewards go out first week after the pledges have been processed.

Your pledges go towards better equipment, getting more software to do tutorials about and support my time used for research, testing, writing, drawing, recording and editing videos. Patronage also exists as a way to say thanks with financial assistance, which will make it easier to help me to expand into doing more software and hardware reviews. As well, as let me give more tips in my “Starving Artist” videos and expand into drawing lessons.

My videos are currently available on YouTube.  With your support, I can expand to include them on other video sites.

If you have any other questions about how Patreon works, feel free to ask..

Many apologies to Bill Waterson for the drawings on the right. They just seemed to fit.

$0 of $200 per Video
Right now I'm using a cheap microphone. I would like to upgrade to a Blue Yeti USB Microphone so I can get better sound quality and save time during post-production editing to get better sound.
