visual artists Love Patreon
Fran Meneses is creating illustrations
“I joined Patreon a year ago, and it’s been the best decision I’ve made in the last couple of years. Patreon has shifted my creative process: I can take the time to work on personal projects and create new material without having to worry about anything else. This is the first time in my life I have the space to do this, and I’m incredibly grateful.”
Zach Weinersmith is creating SMBC Comics and Books
“It’s the most reliable and relaxing way to make a living for creators. Every other way to make money (ads, crowdfunding, merchandise, conventions…) is subject to seasonality and random fluctuations.”
Ty Carter is creating Illustrations
“The interesting thing about being able to connect like this online is that the artist is no longer working by themselves. I can share my process, my technique, my thoughts.”
