Hello. I'm Andy: an artist, illustrator and designer, living in Wales. After many years (ok, maybe a decade or two) doing a 'proper job' working as designer, I felt the need to try something a bit different. And so, late in 2016, I launched the Dragons of Wales project on Kickstarter.


This was a simple concept, based on an idea I'd been kicking around for a while: what if Dragons were real and alive today in my home-country of Wales. What might they look like, how would they live, and why do most people never see them? Basically, all an elaborate excuse to spend a lot of time drawing and painting strange little creatures!

Well, the first Dragons of Wales book was successfully funded on Kickstarter in January last year, and was completed and published in July. A new book of sketches - "Drawings of Dragons" was funded, again through Kickstarter, in January of 2018, and published in May. I'm now hard at work on the next Dragons of Wales book, following a third successful Kickstarter!


And so to this - my Patreon page!

Here I'll be producing something that I am calling "The Dragon Journals".

Taking the form of a naturalist’s journal/sketchbook, with drawings, notes and observations of Welsh Dragons, this will be EXCLUSIVE to Patreon. I’ll be posting at least 3 new pages each week, and every six months these pages will be compiled into a completed journal. This compendium will be available to all my Patrons as a free digital download, but printed versions will also be available to buy.
For just $1 a month you will have exclusive access to all of this.

The Dragon Journal is NOT available outside of Patreon.




If you would like a little more, for $25 per month you will receive a selection (usually between 4 & 6) original hand-drawn sketches. These A5-sized sketches (like the one below) will be mailed directly to you each month, and many of these Dragons will also feature in the books.
Finally, for $50 per month you can commission your own unique Dragon illustration. I will produce a highly detailed digital painting - like the example below - based on your description. So if you have your own idea for a tiny Dragon, that you would like to see brought to life, this is for you. They also make ideal gifts for any Dragon-lovers in your life.

You will receive a high-resolution digital file of your Dragon, which is yours to use in any way you wish - for prints, cards, stationary, websites, whatever you choose. And don't forget that you can cancel / amend your pledge at any time, so if you just want to commission one illustration, rather than every month, no problem!

So, if you feel your life would be enhanced by having a few more Dragons in it - and let's face it, we could all do with more Dragons in our lives - please consider supporting me.

Thank you.
