Greetings humans, cats, and lizard people of the internet!

So...who are you?

I'm Elissa Brown. But due to no one being able to pronounce my first name, and one of my ancestors purposely choosing one of the most anonymous last names possible; I answer to Lissa, Red, and Hey You. For business purposes I operate under the handle Foolish Mortal. 

Kay...what do you do?

I am an artist, graphic designer, illustrator, sometimes writer, and general all around nerd.  
I play with a lot of media and styles but generally I stick to digital and watercolor. Subject wise I take a lot of my ideas from video games, history, and vintage art styles. My art and links to my process blog and other online haunts can be found at foolish-mortal.com.

So why are you here? 

I'm glad you asked - non existent person! I do commissions, and sell some of my work through the internet, and conventions, but this isn't much of a steady income. Freelancing comes in waves of feast or famine, and doesn't give me a lot of stability. 

Pledging would help me even things out, and help me afford to do more to get my name out there. Build up a portfolio, afford more conventions, and be able to make more art and products to share with folks. I also have depression I keep in check with medication that I need to keep my brain - braining. Pledging and Patrons help with all of this and helps me out so I can keep creating things for people. Also helps me afford cat treats so my cat doesn't suffocate me in the night.  

So what do I get out of this?
My eternal gratitude and a warm fuzzy feeling from helping your fellow sentient being, for starters. Beyond I've got a few things in mind to pay ya'll back.

At the 1 dollar level you gets access to posts on here. Doodles man was not meant to see,  more in detail progress and step by step stuff, process rambling. I've also got a few ideas I'm trying to polish into actual stories, be they prose, or comics, or some amalgamation of the two I don't know yet.

But being at the basic support tier lets you see not just my general every day stuff but also the behind the scenes sketches, and odds and ends writing drabble as I try to work on and shape larger projects. 

$2 gets you all the magic and wonder of the $1 level along with hi-res line arts, and wall papers and other downloadable things. 

5 dollars you get the amazing projects of the first two levels but you also get a postcard mailed to you, from me four times a year. The post card will be artwork of mine, printed and sent to you, or an address of your choice. I will also write or sketch whatever you want on the back in ink that should mostly survive the ravages of the postal system.  

$20 gets you the blog access, the wallpapers, and postcard from a stranger, but also gets you a random sketch sent to you or address of your choice. Surprise your friends and enemies with random artwork! 

But what about all this other stuff you have online?
My tumblr, my devart, website, and other various online pages will continue to proceed at usual at no cost to you. The finished pieces, my finalized ramblings, my random 3 in the morning posts about video games, will all be accessible for free by the general public. I'm not a big fan of shoving everything behind paywalls and I know a lot about being broke and not being able to support folks I like, so those will continue and patrons get access to the fun extras on here. 

Thank you all for your time if you read to the end of this! If you can't afford, or don't want to pledge, thank you all the same. I appreciate everyone who takes time to look at my work.

My set of watercolor brushes is pretty limited and getting worn out.  I really need a decent brush to do smooth washes and transitions.
