About Betty Turbo

OH HEY! It's me, your friend Betty Turbo!!

An artist is what kind of animal I am, so I've been one all my life, but I've been playing the self-employed game full-time since late 2010. I spend a lot of time on hand lettering, portraits, and illustrations inspired by food and popular culture, but sometimes I build things out of cardboard boxes and papier-mâché, or go full nerd on fabricating graphic props for visual storytelling. Sometimes it feels like this...



So, in an effort to punch the Shark of Loneliness in the nose a lil more often, and increase the net amount of comfort & community feelings in my life and yours, I'm here on Patreon.  Please join me in creating a space for deliberate discussion of big and small ideas, behind-the-scenes glimpses of some of the work I do, how I can encourage you to embrace and supercharge your own creativity!  And obviously, more Fresh New Art!!  Recurring monthly support will create a little morsel of consistency amidst the wild waves of self-employment, and give me more muscles to carve out time for personal projects, like a few long-simmering book ideas begging to see the light of day!

I have engaged with Patreon from the patron side for a few years now and my perspective has been mostly that contributing is a moment to affirm "Yes, this is the kind of energy I want to see more of in the world!" and this platform has real potential to make committing to the value of art in our lives more sustainable for creators AND supporters. 

If you would like to pledge monthly support, that's awesome! You can choose any amount starting at $1 and you can edit or cancel your pledge at any time. If you don't want to or are unable to, I still appreciate you being part of my community and there are lots of ways you can show support for free!  Follow here for occasional public posts and polls!  Reshare my social media posts with appropriate credit!  Leave comments on social media so I know when something resonates with you!  Spread the word on products of mine you like and tell your friends where to buy! Recommend me when you know someone is looking to hire a professional artist!

Thanks for being here!! Your support of my art at any level means so much.

You can always find me...

When I reach my first 100 patrons here, I'm gonna make everyone a superfluously luxurious hand-printed membership card. There will be glitter and holograms involved.
