I'm an artist that attempts to do more than I can accomplish.  I want to be able to continue to make art, of all kinds, for everyone to enjoy, for the rest of my life. I want to be able to pursue what is meaningful and fulfilling, and for me that means to be able to create artwork. 

I took to drawing early in life and always had a rabid desire to draw as far as I can remember.  I was an obsessive doodle-maniac, and soon realized that drawing constantly was not necessarily allowed or appropriate behavior.  Still, I drew whenever I could; they just didn't understand!  When I wasn't drawing, I was reading, and I read books just as obsessively as I drew.

My love for drawing and writing led to a love for music, a love for poetry, a love for painting, a love for film, and a love for editing.  I truly love to make things, and I'd go so far as to say that if I cannot make things as often as I can I tend to feel quite terrible, as one feels when they miss a loved one.  I can't exactly explain why I feel the need to create art, only that creating art feels better than not creating it.  Making art gives me a connection to something that is completely overpowering in its complexity and tasks me to create order through creative thinking about problems to solve, be they personal, emotional, spiritual, or practical.

If you choose to support me you will be putting your money in the hands of a dedicated and hard-working artist, for which I will be eternally grateful.  My goal is not to make money for the sake of making money, but to be able to develop and source creative projects: this involves tasks such as buying materials and equipment, printing, shipping, framing, editing, employing and communicating with collaborators, etc. The reason I'm doing this via Patreon is that in lieu of any better alternative I've yet to discover, this seems to be the simplest and most effective way to support artists online.

Master tier patrons expect the best, and exist to challenge the artist to the limits of their creative ability.  Rarest of the rare, most generous of the generous.  I will make you an oil painting.

The Lunatic tier exists for the exceptionally insane and overly generous.  If you give me $1000/month, I will create a series of 3 large oil paintings for you as well as a Print Compendium of my entire portfolio, a permanent credit in every new video as Executive Producer, and 3 framed and signed Limited Edition Prints.

Goals
$0 of $585 per month
When I reach $585/month, the amount I need to pay my rent, I will create a youtube video about the importance of art, talk about the process I went through becoming an artist, and what sorts of artists I admire or was inspired by coming up.
