Sharon Samples is creating Illustrations

patrons

$27
per month
Hi! I'm Sharon, and I'm an artist from Mobile, Alabama. Art is my passion, but I don't get to do much of it at my day job, which barely qualified as field-adjacent to that which I actually majored in college (Graphic Design & Photography).

Why Patreon?

Patreon is a way support the creation of an artist's works in a manner very similar to Kickstarter. However, rather than funding a single project, you support the creation of works on a continuous basis, in this case, monthly. The funds you contribute to me will help me purchase with art supplies as well as offset the cost of printing things that go in my store, like those Lizzie Bennet Diaries bookmarks.

I also have plans to produce an art book, which costs money. The female Robin Hood-themed comic I’m developing will be free for all, but the patrons will have special access to the work in progress, which I’ve already posted to the Patron-only feed.

I would also like to make available my past Periscope videos that are no longer available for viewing on the app. I have saved most of them, I just have to upload them to a permanent space.

The Rewards

Who doesn't love getting stuff in the mail? I know I love it. Starting at the $3 reward level, each patron will receive a special postcard featuring an illustration drawn during that month.

If you choose a higher reward level, you gain the option of getting a bookmark, 8" x 10" art print, and a custom cahier journal. There is also the option to receive an original pencil drawing.

I’ve also added a Newsletter to the rewards (starting at the $1 tier), which will include lots of behind-the-scenes photos and daily goings-on of my life.
