Welcome to my Patreon page! I consider myself a professional dot-connector, frequent flâneuseauthor, international speaker and itinerant artist. I'm pretty darn prolific, and cannot find a category that really suits me, as I produce digital and analog art, poetry, video, animation, photography, blog posts, music videos, remixes of all kinds, educational materials and courses, experience design and, well - ideas! 

I never sign my artwork, but most who are familiar with it can spot it a mile away for its distinct minimalist style and (often) hot pink and black colour palette. 
I'm a big fan of remix cultureDadaism, and irreverent art. If you are already following me on all the social media channels you know that I share freely and frequently and often produce content in "themes". I made it a personal challenge to see if I could do most of my creative work with my mobile phone (because I'm a huge fan of mobile devices in the classroom if leveraged properly).

Why am I on Patreon?

I have a bajillion new ideas a day, and some could really be great if I just had the time and financial security to pursue them. A lot of folks have asked me to turn my projects into more tangible things, like coffee table books, card decks, or other products. I have plans for a few books (most interactive), a couple video series (one animated one about Creativity), several online course experiences, a podcast, a card deck, an adult party game book and more! My blog, AmusED has about 15 posts in the backburner (I blog mostly about visual thinking, media, education, and creativity).

Patreon will allow me to house my creative work in one consistent place, and I plan to taper down all my other postings on various platforms. I'm a big believer in sharing work, because I'm convinced that if even only one person is affected in a good way, it's worth it. People have often told me that my work "makes their day" or moves them deeply, sometimes if only to appreciate the beauty in the mundane or the wow in whimsy.

Patreon will allow me to interact more intimately with those who appreciate my work and wish for me to keep creating and flourish. If you are not familiar, I've set my page up to have monthly commitments (so you won't get charged for each item I make, which would be A LOT). For the price of a fancy coffee, a Friday beer, or a movie ticket each month you could really make a difference in my ability to make good stuff. I am a freelancer at the moment (after 25 years in the classroom), and am devoting my time to creating and helping others be more creative. 

What's in it for my Patrons?

I can't wait to share special things with my patrons and get feedback (which is creative fuel, did you know?). I've got a lot of cool rewards for your support at the varying tiers. Supporting me also means making the world a more whimsical, beautiful, fun place (because I never post derogatory or hurtful things online). I do, however, try to create things that make people think...either by learning something new or looking at the world in a different way.
Hope you join me in this journey and let's see what we can create!
