As more and more of my video art tutorials get demonetized on Youtube I am now seeking community support on Patreon to help keep my content going and to keep it free for everyone to enjoy. This is my third year on Youtube which brings in record high views and subscribers but also marks another year of record low ad revenue numbers- 56% lower to be exact. The revenue generated from Youtube is how I am able to support my channel and my family but as Youtube continues to make questionable changes to their platform, the future of my channel becomes uncertain. This is why I am turning my attention to Patreon. I am grateful to all my fans and subscribers for your continued support. If you find value in what I do and believe in what I do then please consider supporting my Patreon campaign.

Thank you.  

What is Cartooning 4 Kids?

I am an artist. I used to work in the animated film and software industry. When my kids were old enough to hold crayons, they started drawing on their own…and sometimes on the wall too. Then, they started asking me how to draw like me. But they were at different ages so I started recording my drawing lessons for them so they could learn at their own individual pace. One thing led to another, and in 2014, my YouTube channel was launched.

Today, Cartooning 4 Kids has hundreds of thousands of subscribers and nearly a quarter billion views. This is now my full-time job. I create and share new video tutorials every single day on my main channel and now my recently added second channel for younger artists and beginners. My goal is to introduce the basic fundamentals of drawing and help build confidence to children and aspiring artists around the world. Exercising creativity should be fun and free.

Why do I need your help?

I love teaching art and I love making videos, but it’s becoming more of a challenge each year. The advertising revenue we make on Youtube has become unstable with each passing year. For the past 3 years I have been supplementing production funding through various freelance jobs I pick up elsewhere.

My mission is quite simple. I want to provide the largest creative arts education resource for all to enjoy. I believe I can help build confidence in young children and encourage everyone to discover their creative talents. I’m hoping that this Patreon will help make production less stressful and provide a way for me to continue creating free content for you and to all my fans around the world.

I can promise you that I will always do my best and will continue to dedicate my life to building this Youtube channel for everyone to enjoy. Your support is incredibly important to me so I thank you so much for your love and generosity.

What I will do with your money:

Your support will allow me to stop relying solely on ad revenue to fund my channel. With more and more advertisers pulling away from Youtube each month it can get a bit challenging to plan for the future of my channel. Your support will allow me to focus 100% on the lessons I create and not lose valuable time hunting for other work to fund production.

I can invest more time into broadening the range of lessons I create. I would love to produce more lessons for my younger audience and also for my advanced artists. The short amount of time I have makes it nearly impossible for me to provide enriching lessons suited to all skill levels. Your support will allow me to better plan my lessons and even increase production in many ways.

And, mainly, it will allow me to spend more time with my children, for whom all this began.

So simply put, you allow me the time to improve and maintain a healthy and happy Youtube channel for everyone to enjoy for free, forever.

Thank you for your support.
