reward item

Once a month I’ll do a one hour live drawing session. I’ll share how I use my art supplies while drawing live. Usually patrons choose the subject so we can practice together: The last couple of months we've worked on patterns, how to do gifs for IG Stories and we inked the first page of my graphic novel. Drawing dates are a great chance to see the whole process behind an illustration and ask questions in real time.
Plus all previous rewards, YES SERIOUSLY

About



I’m Fran, but most of the interwebz knows me as Frannerd. I’m a freelance illustrator and author living in New York. I love uploading all sorts of content: I draw illustrations and comics on instagram and twitter, I film videos for my youtube channel, I'm working on a graphic novel and I also have an ethical stationery and apparel shop called Nice Humans.

I joined Patreon in 2016 and it's been such fulfilling ride. It started like a complement to my other social media platforms: newsletter podcasts every other week, livestream drawing dates, lengthy Q&A sessions and a sneak peek into my sketchbook. Over the years it's grown into a kind and hard-working community who likes to do art, who supports each other and finds company with other fellow artists around the world. 

Patreon allows me to LIVE (from paying my rent to my cat's food) but also allows me to keep creating the content I do and make it better: I go to museums, I get to travel every once in a while, buy art supplies to share with you, get better filming equipment, and buy some snacks/coffee for my studio. Patreon also gave me a group of friends (YOU) to share all the wonderful and crappy stuff I go through: from my creative process and struggles, to a behind the scenes into my work and all the human stuff I deal on a weekly basis. 




I design my Patreon so THE BEST STUFF IS THE CHEAPEST. My best pledge costs $1: newsletter podcast, access to our Illustration Club, POBOX videos, tutorials, daily Lens clips (the Patreon equivalent of Instagram Stories), Discord channel and more. If you like my work, and you want to support me, just choose how much you want to pledge per month. Don’t worry, you can edit or cancel your pledge anytime you want.

You support means EVERYTHING to me, so I never miss my pledges and I update Patreon regularly. If you join even for one month (THANK YOU), you can check all the content since 2016!

Don't worry if you can't pledge, any form of support (reading my comics, sharing, watching my videos) is a HUGE help.

Thank you so much for stopping by, welcome to our funny, kind and weird community! 





Goals
$5,000 - reached! per month
Can't believe I'm even WRITING THIS, but holy bananas guys, 5-FREAKING-K! D: If we do ever reach 5K I'd love to do an Illustration Club with you guys; when I was 5 or 6 years old my sister and I had clubs all the time and I used to draw my own drawing club's id hahaha, so this would be like a dream come true to me! Some activities I'm thinking on the top of my head: • illustration challenges and activities regularly • every time I visit a new city, I'd love to meet you and organise a coffee + drawing date together!  AND • a lovely and inclusive community where we can all share tips, advice and resources about freelance life and illustration!
