Foxfeather R. Zenkova is creating Art and Emus

I'm Foxfeather, and I'm a crazy beekeeper, yak-wrangler, and owned-by-emus artist who is making a host of creative things from theater masks to jewelry to homemade soaps while running a small farm and blogging about it online. You can keep up to date with my adventures on Twitter or on my website, Foxloft Studios

If you've ever wondered what it's like to hatch emu eggs in your living room, bottle feed yak babies, or drive through downtown Chicago at 2 in the morning with a car full of pigs, my blog is probably for you. :)  Also, lots of cool animal art.


I'm a part-time-farmer for the love of it, but my day job is creating art. For over 15 years now, I have been making animal totem glyph designs and compiling an extensive online encyclopedia of their unique symbolism. I have now a collection of over 110 designs and want to keep adding to this growing list with new designs and new totemic information!

See a list of all our current totems here!

With your help, I can expand my offerings and will be creating at least one new animal glyph design each month, along with its symbolic information!  The more support I receive, the more time I can dedicate to creating new designs and expanding the current species information write-ups.

I also focus on wildlife and animal artwork, primarily in watercolor. The series I am best known for are my 'Animal Stack' and 'Yin-Yang' designs.  Patronage of my art allows me to expand these series with new species and dog breeds!

How Does Patreon Work?
Please think of this as a tip-jar. If you enjoy my work, have found my animal symbolism useful, laughed at my crazy emu videos, or just want to help keep me making new designs, this is a way to show your appreciation and get a lot of mine! :)

You can have a direct impact on the creation of new art, growing the farm, and sharing photos!
Patreon offers the ability to become a patron of the arts and support work that you love (and the artists who make it!). By pledging even just $1 a month you can help keep me making new artwork and farming - with additional benefits listed below!

Being a patron gets you access to exclusive work-in-progress artwork!
If you'd like to see how my glyph designs are created, from concept to final design, all levels of patronage offer the chance to see my progress artwork, including sketches and process art as well as a sneak peak at the designs I'll be working on before anyone else knows.  I try to keep my updates to 1-2 per month, larger compilation posts so you don't have to worry about being spammed with constant updates!

Thank you so much for considering supporting my work, I can't tell you how much it means to me all the support I've gotten over the years from so many amazing people who have led me to make a career out of doing what I love! Thank you for being a part of it!

Goals
55% complete
Feed the Birds!
This goal would cover the monthly feeding cost for our flock of emus, ducks, geese, peacocks, and chickens. We grow some of our own feed, and the birds have access to acres of pasture, but especially in our long Minnesota winters we have to supplement their diet with quality feed and forage.
