Justin Gregory Smith is creating Pastel Artwork

patrons
The Coast

I'm a freelance pastel, pencil and paint artist.  Exploring techniques and styles motivates me to do what I do.  I love working on majestic scenery and stunning creatures in particular. 

I love the visual art community and want to help make it accessible to those who don't quite know where or how to get started.  Being able to do, teach, and explore art full-time is the goal in mind with your support.

Immediate goals you ask?

1.  Set aside time to teach lessons.
2.  Support other artists locally and internationally.
3.  Lookout for my #1 fans (that's you, dear patrons).

The Horizon

This is something I want to grow into a community... a community both physically and electronically uniting artists of all walks and ages.  Everyone from kids to grandparents experience and enjoy visual art on some level.  With the right support, we can awaken everyone's inner artist.

Through your pledges, you help foster an artistic community through:

1.  A proper studio to create and teach out of.
2.  Online lessons and demonstrations.
3.  Art camps, conventions, meet ups, charities, education, tacos...

Become a part of something great. Pledge today.

Thanks for the support!  You've just landed yourself early access to all artwork, which the rest of the world will get a taste of in random spurts.


You've also earned exclusive access to the private blog where I'll discuss updates, projects, life, etc. as well as shots from my private sketchbook.

Juvenile

Congrats!  You've earned yourself a monthly 8" x 10" print of your choice from any of the previous month's work.  Oh... and a small personal surprise to go along with it.

Your generous support at this stage lands you a monthly 9" x 12" commissioned piece for yourself.  Must be SFW and on either paper or canvas.

Choice meats provided for the top of the ladder!  On top of the Beta tier's commissioned piece, you may also request a SECOND monthly commission up to 16" x 20" for paper or canvas.  SFW only.
Goals
10% complete
This isn't a cheap hobby.  My day job covers the bills while commissioned work covers restocking supplies.  However, an extra note in my pocket will allow me to expand further and dive into more extravagent projects.
