My brother and I have already written our first novel based in this new world, and are working on editing the 3rd draft of it! Our hope is to get it published as a beautiful, classical-style, hardbound book, the kind worth owning, that can be a family treasure for generations.
I have already begun programming and building our own “Google Maps” of our story book world with elevation maps, cities, castles, etc. I want to continue building out this map to support the stories that will be told.
I’ve been working as a fashion artist/Illustrator for the last decade. This last year I’ve been working on stretching myself as artist. I have begun oil painting to create historical art for my fictional story book world, including royal portraits, paintings of historic events, etc.
Music for me is a totally different way to express feeling. I use it to bring clarity to my thoughts and develop future ideas for the soundtrack to our book. I will be posting and sharing songs that i’ve written and never shared before.
What is Patreon?
Patreon is an amazing site that allows anyone join in and be apart of my journey as an artist, and help me continue making things. It helps eliminate the feast or famine lifestyle that comes being an artist.
As an artist I often live from project to project and if projects fall through, or people cancel it makes it hard to pay monthly bills.
My hope with this page is to gain more stability, which will allow me to focus more on creating bigger and better things, while offering rewards like traceables, reference photos, bonus exclusive live videos, group challenges, and personalized consulting to you!
Get back every bit that you give...
In addition to the rewards listed in every donation tier, I will also apply any donation that you have made towards purchases of prints, or original art pieces! So think of any support you give me as an investment in a future purchase of you choice.
You can follow my work on Instagram as I am always posting my daily project progress in my stories, and you can check out my existing works on Igor + Andre, which is an archive of thousands of paintings, drawings, and videos i’ve made over the years. Thank you for helping keep my creative process going in any way that you can!
