Funds from Patreon are a crutch in day-to-day life. Everything earned here goes toward keeping off the streets- and I'm eternally grateful for that!

A nice little perk is that you also get cool exclusives like Snapchat info, sketches, and even month-by-month requests!

UPDATE APRIL 2018

April 2018. This month I'm moving out of our apartment. Next month I'm scouting out a place to call home, and the month after that I'll be moving cross-country to stay in that home in Los Angeles, CA.

I've been accepted into Gnomon's 2-year program for modeling and VFX, which I hear is refreshingly grueling work. Because of this though, and because I want to focus on making nasty ugly spooky creatures for your television screen, I know I have to cut Patreon rewards cold-turkey. This specifically means no individualized rewards for the 10$ and 20$ tier, which also affects the 5$ tier, because there will be no progress .gifs of the aformentioned tier-work.

You guys have given me so much comfort these past years and every penny from Patreon has gone to rent or medical insurance. It has become my self-imposed 'I don't have it so I won't use it' fund, which has been majorly helpful.

So there won't be any more individualized rewards- what will there be instead?

Patreon will still be around, and I still appreciate every penny, but the reward might end up being 1-tier of randomocity from my life. That could be a range of things, like pictures of the city or current school-works. Depending on the type of work I could definitely stream it, but the streams would be kept to a minimum.

If you would like to pull out support there are no hard feelings at all, as that's why I'm writing this post- to inform you and encourage you to withdraw if you're not into these changes!

Will there ever be individualized art again, Ash?!

Here's what I'm thinking: I'll adjust the tier rewards...
1$ stays the same,
5$ will now have a boosted 10% discount toward commissions,
and there will be no rewarded tier above that.

Ah- ...but full-body commissions will close.


Headshots on the other hand, painted or otherwise, might have a once-a-month commission stream, so that I can pay for internet.

Sorry for the massive wall of text, but I wanted to let you know through this weird-... stream-of-consciousness update what all's happening. Will also drop a letter in your inboxes, to make sure everyone's on the same page!

Thanks again guys
