✨ WELCOME TO THE POPNATION ✨

What's up! I'm Rosie, but online I usually go by dollipop. I'm an artist in my late twenties from San Antonio, TX, and I mostly specialize in character illustration. My passion is drawing kickass girls who are a little rough around the edges, and I love to reclaim the pinup genre using bright colors and bold lines paired with tongue-in-cheek, pro-feminism humor in my artwork.

I create what I like to call POPart - which is my own brand of in-your-face, positive illustration. POPart stems from my belief that art can be light-hearted and fun, but still change the world for the better. If that sounds like something you're into, you've come to the right place. Welcome to the POPnation.

✨WHY PATREON? FOLLOW-UP, WHAT IS PATREON?✨


Patreon is, essentially, a subscription service to support your favorite artists. By getting the people who truly appreciate my work most to pledge small amounts each month, I can continue to create the things I love - and more. Ambitious illustrative projects, world domination, opening an online shop? Two out of three of these options are very real things I can accomplish with your help!

Real talk, though, some of the things I hope to accomplish via Patreon include:
  • Leaving my current part-time job and doing art full-time (also known as "The Dream™")
  • Opening an online shop with prints, stickers, stationary, charms, and more
  • Upgrading my equipment to make better YouTube videos (have you heard my built-in laptop microphone? it's not cute)
  • Creating zines, art books, enamel pins, and more!
In return for helping me accomplish these dreams, you get so much more than just knowing you make a difference - which is awesome, too - but you'll also get sneak peeks at my art, sketches that I don't post anywhere else, high-resolution images, wallpapers... and the rewards only build from there. Check out the tiers listed to the right for more information about what your cold hard cash can buy you!

In addition to monthly rewards, every Patron will receive a link to a one-time digital welcome package as a thank you! Think of this as a little preview of what you can expect to see each month from me. The package includes:
  • A pack of high-res images of some recent artwork
  • A wallpaper pack, specially tailored to phones, tablets, and computers
  • Several sketch dumps featuring never-before-seen artwork
  • One coloring sheet - even if you're a $1 patron!
  • A special Patreon-exclusive video tutorial - "Making Your Portraits POP" - which covers the steps I take to make my headshots look polished and vibrant.
  • An image-format tutorial of the video explaining the process simply and visually
  • A PSD with labeled layers and annotations to accompany the tutorial - compatible with Photoshop, Procreate, Clip Studio Paint, and any other programs that can open PSD format files!

✨I'M SOLD. HOW DOES THIS WORK?✨


Becoming a Patron is super easy! Here's what you need to know.
  1. Step one - choose a tier. The higher the tier you choose, the more benefits you'll get. Additionally, as you move up in tiers you will get all the benefits of tiers below you.
  2. When you choose a tier, you will be immediately charged that amount from Patreon. You'll also be able to access the entire history of the Patreon-only feed, as well as this month's goodies dependent on your tier! You can upgrade tiers at any time, and will be charged the difference upon upgrade.
  3. You will be charged again on the first of the month, and subsequently on the first of every month as long as you remain a Patron. This means that the best time to join is generally near the beginning of a new month!
  4. If you are in a tier that offers physical rewards as a benefit, your rewards will be shipped in the beginning of the following month. For example, if you join Patreon at the Pop Idol tier in the beginning of September, you will be charged $20 immediately. Your September mini-original will be sent at the beginning of October. If you were to cancel your $20 pledge or downgrade to a lower tier amount before packages were sent, you'd still get your September mini-Original at the beginning of October, since you paid that immediate $20 for September.
That's pretty much all you need to know! If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to email me at [email protected] . I hope to see you soon!
