Pamela is creating emojos, avatars and traditional art

I started out creating emojis for bsd.network to reflect its unique flavor and the personalities of its residents. Stock emoji sets are not always the best fit: gendered sets are not inclusive, many of the emojis are too bland, and their use is difficult to adapt to individual communities.

Custom emoji sets are a great shorthand for the things that tie a community together. A batch of them can represent a community as a whole: distillations of an interest, thought or feeling unique to the group using it for self-expression. I use Inkscape running on OpenBSD to make emoji that can serve as tools to communicate shared experiences, within instances or across the Fediverse.

Help me continue making my own emojis, for my own communities and for others. It's incredibly satisfying being part of your conversations, watching others use my work to build languages of their own in the wild! I'd like to keep adding to those languages, and to create new ones as communities and interests evolve.

Tiers
Hey, nice emojos!
$1 or more per month
Hey, thanks! This will show your support and make me smile. :D
See the process!
$5 or more per month

Wow! Thank you! I'll share artwork here for you to see, every month! How exciting! This might include things I'm working on, a look at sketchbook pages, or a fresh emojo from start to finish! It will *definitely* include my favorite piece from the past month, and a bit about it! Consider this like joining my monthly newsletter.


When posting artwork, I'll keep you in the loop about cool free stuff I've made to share and how to get your hands on it, cool stuff I've made to sell, and new things I'm trying!

See the ~weird~ stuff
$10 or more per month

Oh heck, $10, you're serious? 


That's awesome! Tell you what... I'll show you EVERYTHING I  FINISH (including commissions, if the requester permits). I'll also show you all the stuff shoved into a virtual closet or under the couch.  Rejected flan attempts, ideas too strange even for me, bizarre sketches that went nowhere, half-finished drawings... (That should cure you of any interest in this tier!)


This will give you a place to come and just flip through and look at whatever might interest you, and also see the things no one else has!

Buy me a sick day (and yourself a card!)
$25 or more per month only 3 left
There's one massive, glaring problem with self-employment, and I've been self-employed for several years now. 


Choose this tier, and you will cover my sick leave for a single day of work. If I get sick enough to "stay home," I will take your contribution, call it the day's earnings, and go the heck back to bed and try to recover. I promise not to cough on you. 


When I feel better, I'll draw on a postcard and mail it to you! A little bit of custom art just for you. If I don't get sick that month, you will still get your card, and it'll probably be safer!

I said :flan_mech:, and I meant it.
$75 or more per month only 1 left
Did I not make an emoji you wanted? Make me! For the duration of one month, you will be the *only person on Earth* who can.


You may choose one of my emoji subjects for the month. Yes, you will wield the power of :flan_*:, if you so choose. (You're responsible for admin buy-in to get the finished product posted on your home instance, and legal restrictions may apply!) 


I may later disavow knowledge or responsibility. You might not like the results. But I *will* make the emojo you specify, and I will draw a lovely dead tree version of it on half-letter paper (roughly A5), and I will mail that to you, anywhere in the world. 

Witness me exploding! (or buy a print)
$100 or more per month only 2 left
Caveat: I'm not certain I will actually explode, or that if I do, I'll be prepared to record the proceedings for your entertainment.


In the event that I do not *actually* explode, I will mail you a giclée print, TBD, or another fun item if you'd prefer. I will also probably look adoringly at you at every opportunity.

Goals
$147 of $200 per month
I will sit back, relax, get a cup of tea or something, and take maybe an hour or so ponder how great all my patrons are, how lucky I am to have them supporting me, and maybe think of some ways I can pass it on in my own life and/or career.

If circumstances allow, I'd also like to make this the tier where I take a day and go do some fun sketching and share what comes of it with you!
