Hi and welcome to my Patreon page "Belinda Illustrates"


Who Is Belinda Illustrates?

I am a Melbourne based fantasy illustrator - Belinda Jane Morris - specialising in watercolour painting. I love to paint beautiful things mostly with a lot of colour. I love reading Fantasy and Sci-fi and incorporate these themes into my work. One day I would love to have a book (or 2...or more) written and illustrated by me and published. I have a couple of story ideas... Australian magpies dressed in Tudor styled clothing...small dragons kept as pets by Edwardian ladies who like a good cup of tea...a king who can't see faces but can only recognise his people when they wear a mask... My hope is that through Patron I can make this happen.


Why Patreon?

I decided to join Patreon as a chance to connect to a wider community and give them more insight into the creation of my work - why I do it and how I do it. I love talking about art - the processes, techniques, the history and the story behind the art. Through Patron I hope to be able to geek out with like minded individuals and share with them my creative journey.


What Do Patrons Get?

Patrons get insight into all the highs and lows and everything in-between of being an artist pursuing illustration as a career. I will share my art processes - how I go about creating an artwork from rough sketch to finished painting. I will also share my art techniques which I have developed over the last decade which includes drawing with Prismacolor Col-Erase pencils, painting in watercolour and touching up final art in photoshop using digital painting techniques.
I have 20 years experience being an artist and can share all the knowledge I have gained from that time, including having to work a day job to make ends meet. As someone whose day job is working as a retail assistant at an art store I can also help with advice on art materials - from printmaking to sculpting to digital painting to painting in watercolour and everything in between (if I don't know something I can usually know where to look or who to ask to find out). So feel free to ask me anything about my art, my techniques or even some art material/technique you are struggling with.



Patrons will get as a reward for patronage firstly my thanks and gratitude for helping me along my creative journey, patrons will have an opportunity to offer input and feedback on story ideas, sketches and paintings. And finally depending on their patronage level (which may change and develop as we go on), monthly behind the scenes emails (including photos of works in process), videos, prints, sketches, original paintings and more.


What Do I Get Out of it?

I get to directly connect with my audience by getting feedback on works in process and hearing what they like. By regularly providing written drafts, story ideas, sketches, concepts, research and finished paintings with my Patrons I am kept accountable to work on my own book ideas that I've been meaning to do for years. And finally a source of income so that I can one day quit my part time "day job" as a retail assistant and focus on my career as an artist and illustrator, which upto the time of writing this I have been unable to do.


What is Patreon and how does it work?

Patreon is a platform designed to help support the creators and creations you love. It works as a kind of subscription service to your favorite creators. In return for your patronage, you can pick from a selection of rewards such as studio snapshots, extra video content, exclusive sketchbook sneak peak, monthly livestream, or getting to know more about the projects I’m currently working on.

If you like my work and you would like to support it; first of all, you are awesome! And I salute you with my cup of tea :) Choose how much you would like to pledge per month (every single dollar makes a difference) and take a look at the rewards you would like on the right.
