About David Haden

Hi, I'd love it if you could become my patron.

I'm the Editor of Digital Art Live, a free magazine for science fiction artists. At January 2019 the magazine has produced over 35 issues and continues on a monthly schedule. The magazine has run in-depth interviews with famous names such as Syd Mead, Matt Nava (maker of the game Journey), Andy Lomas (CG lead on Avatar), Kevin Conran (maker of the Sky Captain movie), and each issue I also interview several emerging digital artists. Please help support the production of this regular free magazine. You can see a recent sample issue at Issuu and subscribe for free at digitalartlive.com. (This Patreon page is posted with the permission of my publisher and the magazine's owner, Paul Bussey).

Becoming my patron also helps support my personal projects. These include:

⏣ curating the JURN search-engine.  Using JURN you can search across the full-text of over 3,000 open access academic journals in the arts and humanities. JURN has been running for nearly 10 years and is highly optimised and maintained; 

⏣ running a daily news service for scholars of the author H.P. Lovecraft, at my Tentaclii blog - this is now a partly private blog. Any Patron at $1 or more will have access to the password-protected posts;

⏣ running and moderating the long-running creative-industries Facebook Group 'Creative Stoke' for my home city of Stoke-on-Trent. This provides over 3,000 members with my actively-researched 'news you can use', re: funding and opportunities, and also serves as a local hub for the city's creative makers and producers;

⏣ writing a (currently) 180,000 word book on the formative intellectual influences on the young J.R.R. Tolkien during 1913-1915. As of early 2019 there's no blog just yet for that, but my local history blog has occasional new details.

⏣ curating a large public archive of picture postcards from my city of Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire.  Currently with over 2,700 historic local pictures, many newly colourized by myself.

Thank you for reading this far! Please check over on the sidebar, and choose your preferred option as my new patron.
