About



About:


First of all, if you’ve made it here, Welcome! I’m so happy you’ve discovered this incredible portal and community. After a ton of research and a few weeks putting my own personal experience / platform together, I’m excited to share my Patreon with you. I don’t want this message to sound like a sales pitch, because I appreciate your support, whether it’s through Patreon or you saw a mural of mine and smiled. I’d like to explain in depth more about what I do and what this Patreon 'Experience' actually is.

I’m a channel of creative energy, i.e. ARTIST >> residing in Los Angeles, CA, with a non-stop creative flow that consists of studio paintings, illustrations, small & large scale murals, digital art & renders, animation, collaboration, interior design, event production, philosophical writings, as well as production of underground beats & DJ sets.



Over the years, I have been asked by my friends, family, and fans how they can help or support my career and my vision as an artist, that possibly could not afford to purchase a piece of original art or print, but still wanted to contribute and be a part of my journey. That is what Patreon is. This community gives me the opportunity to focus solely on my art and create from a place of truth, without the dependency on commercial projects. It will help me to 'bridge-the-gap' from project to project, fund my essentials like my canvases, materials, studio, and keeps me creating without the looming financial burden that comes with being an artist. It works like this: review the Tier options I’ve laid out and what each option does for YOU, & starting as low as $1, you can give a monthly contribution to my creative life journey. With this contribution, you will gain full access to my artistic creations, tutorials, personal thoughts, videos, limited edition prints, original artwork, and so much more. Check them out. Full transparency, I have tried to make each option super juicy to make sure you feel comfortable with your contribution, and each one is stacked accordingly to hopefully lure you into the next Tier ;). If you do choose to become a Patron, I really want to make it worth your while, and greatly appreciate your support!

“Artists need ongoing, reliable support – akin to a salary in the “real world” – if they’re going to make it and be happy, working artists. The internet and micropayments are making that possible.” - Amanda Palmer

As I was researching Patreon and discovered this statement, everything sort of clicked. Something as small as a dollar a month means a great deal to an artist. Not only will that add up over time and with more supporters, but it shows me that you’re genuinely interested in my work. Also, kudos to you for supporting the arts, that’s big ups.

Up until now I’ve self funded 100% of my own projects. I’ve done commercial work of course to support my human being, but I’m talking about my true expressions, the original ideas, the passion projects. I’m talking tens of thousands of dollars and countless hours producing projects and events that brought me little or no income. To this day, MOST of the money I make from commercial projects or commissions, goes directly back into my passion projects, materials, and studio rent. It’s a brutal, endless cycle, but I am still so grateful to be able to do what I love and I will never stop fighting for that privilege in life.

The thing is, the ideas never stop. The level of inspiration is higher now than ever and it’s been consistent for some time, but I don’t have the ability to fund a lot of this stuff or spend time raising money for these projects or pay the collaborators what they deserve to help make these ideas a reality. As collaborators, often times we trade our services, just to make cool shit happen. But traded services doesn't pay the rent. & it bums me out that a lot of these beautiful ideas will never see the light of day. But that’s the reality of being an artist and I’ve accepted a part that. However, I’m trying to be creative and find ways to bring more of these ideas to life. & I believe Patreon can be an incredible way of making that happen.



Exclusive Access:

Generally I wait 2-3 months before sharing new work on any socials for a variety of reasons, but I'm constantly creating. Everything from studio drawings & paintings to small & large-scale murals, digital renderings, animations, time-lapse & process videos, personal videos, and other cutting-edge/funky stuffs.

I've got a super tight circle of family and best friends (about 5-10 people) that I share this content with as it's in progress and as soon as it's finished - basically that day because I'm so excited to share my new work with people I know are truly excited to see it. So along with your general support of my creative journey (which I am so grateful for), you will have access to brand new material as if you were in my Family text message group.

To be perfectly honest, MOST of my work never even gets posted anywhere on the internet. I like to keep a lot of my work to myself until one day I decide ok I guess I’ll share that. But I’m going to post everything I do here, & almost instantly. As well as a vast amount of work from my archives. So just by signing up you're going to see a ton of new stuff from me that's never been shared, and moving forward, get the first and many times exclusive look at brand new work.

In addition to exclusive content access, I’ve added a bunch more cool stuff including limited edition prints and original artwork that only my Patreons will have access to. Check the Tier options.

I Appreciate Your Support:

I’ve been incredibly fortunate and privileged to have family and friends that have backed me and supported my ideas and creative journey thus far. I absolutely would not be where or who I am today without their undying love and support. I think there is a certain amount of ego that needs to be challenged to receive and appreciate that support. A few years ago or even a year ago if someone brought up the idea of creating a Patreon account I probably would have reacted by saying, “that makes me look weak", or "it’s bad for my brand", or "it devalues my art”. But I’ve gained a new perspective. Since the Renaissance and long before I’m sure, artists have needed support to pursue their true unaltered and unique ideas. & I am not afraid to say out loud that your support is huge in allowing me to really dig deep into these crazy ideas that may otherwise never see the light of day. I challenge the ego of any artist that disagrees.

Thank you so much for your genuine interest and support in my journey. I’m really excited to begin this intimate relationship with my fans and continue to build upon this amazing portal experience moving forward.
