About Aafke Mertens | curlysketches

Hello and welcome to my Patreon page! Thank you for stopping by. My name is Aafke and I'm a Mexican illustrator based in Amsterdam. 

I have been working as a freelance illustrator for 7 years, specialised in visual storytelling, and in the past 5 years I have been running creative workshops. My latest adventure being owning a riso printing studio, Riso Pop. I love to help people find their creativity, and hope that this account can be an extra channel to keep sharing all this creative energy I have!

What do I offer in my Patreon? (Updated: September 2021)

What I want to achieve with my Patreon is to spark your creativity! 

I have set up the tiers in such a way that from the start, no matter which tier you choose, you will receive the same bonus content! 

BONUS Content: Sketchbook tours, Project Updates, Live Drawing sessions, process videos & of course, my famous bi-monthly assignments! 

For the two highest tiers, I am adding a little extra something:
For the €10 tier,  A physical postcard emiten hand drawn or a riso print
And I'd like the €20 to be an option for those who need a pep-talk, extra help with a project or your creative business. So you will be able to book a one-on-one call with me. 

Why Patreon?

I started last year with Patreon as a way to help me to block time to not only work on my personal projects, but to start with the pitch for a graphic novel I had had in my head for a long time. And I can proudly say I was able to achieve this goal! Not only that, I got to try out ideas for workshops and courses that are now part of my 'workshop calendar'.

My goals for my 2nd year in Patreon are to keep improving my content through the development of my own personal projects and to develop a new course with your help. 

If you decide to back me, I can't thank you enough!!! And if you can't pledge, don't worry! Your support in any of my social media channels is already amazing! :D
