What are Buzu Trading Cards?

  • Buzu Cards are educational trading cards designed by me to inspire and educate young artists. They are an open-platform which allows young artists to design and submit their own original characters which I them professionally re-render! Buzu Trading Cards are also usable in gameplay and are made accessible to teachers and schools as a program to help encourage positive student behavior. And if all that weren't enough - they can even help students afford the costs associated with higher education! 



What is Patreon
  • Patreon is a bit like Kickstarter: But where Kickstarter supports a one-time project (like a book or a film)... Patreon supports ongoing efforts (such as comic strips or trading cards).

 
Why use Patreon for Buzu Trading Cards?
  • I love creating something that benefits kids, teachers and schools but the reality is that on a teacher’s salary I can only do so much. Patreon offers parents, teachers, collectors and fans a convenient way to support me as I continue on with what I’m passionate about.


How does Patreon work? What am I pledging?
  • For every month of Buzu Trading Cards (1 card per week), you are pledging a small amount. It’s that simple! 
  • And really: go small on the amount. The goal is to have several people together, giving small amounts because that all adds up.  
  • BUT if you are a supportive fan who wants to give a little bit more, there are BONUS EXCLUSIVES that you can unlock such as: limited edition cards, original sketches or you can even have your own card PROFESSIONALLY RE-RENDERED BY ME! (And know that you can edit, cap the amount or cancel your pledge any time before you’re charged!)

If I don't support Buzu Trading Cards on Patreon, will you stop making them?
  • No way! I LOVE making Buzu Trading Cards - ESPECIALLY the ones designed by kids! I'll always make Buzu cards accessible to everyone and having that access will always be free! Patreon just allows fans to support the creation of new cards and the expansion of the brand.
