About grillcover (David Jenkins)

Welcome to my Patreon!

You probably want to know why you should give me money.

Long story short: I'm an artist and organizer in NYC, working (before COVID, at least) in independent theater, and self-producing highly weirdanti-commercial art. I've become increasingly engaged politically, from electoral work to political education to direct action. I'm fortunate to have some freelance work for now, but the pandemic hustle is real, and it is hard.

I'm hoping this Patreon can help me focus on the work most important to my communities, audiences, and, well, to me. I'd like to spend more time writing, researching, organizing, creating, educating, canvassing, disrupting, performing, and all the things the rise-and-grind gets in the way of.

Patron levels get more access to me and my work, and Client levels are a sort of creative consultancy subscription with me. Every dime helps.

But -- who am I? Good question. The content I create usually comes from one of three sources:

(theater-maker; conceptual artist; getting organized)

Trained in Drama and Chinese, I've worked primarily in theater since moving to NYC in 2007, before expanding into other and weirder media, including web and performance art.

Lately I've been organizing with the NYC Democratic Socialists of America around various causes. I'll be trying to include reflections on this work in my Monthly Updates.

If you can't spare a dime on Patreon but want to support my work, sending transcription my way is a pretty good alternative!

Born in 1995 in the primordial swamps of AOL, "grillcover" has proliferated through various website accounts, video game handles, and other digital media to the point where his identity has become a distinct part of my extended body.

I've been extremely online for a while.

(performer; stooge; meat popsicle)

"After a decade of gestating in the industry, the D.W.J. was born as a fully autonomous, semi-sentient human male construct designed for performance environments."

On the one hand, it's just a funny and bizarre way to "sell myself" and still feel comfortable working in entertainment. On the other hand, it's a deeply personal work of cybernetic art highlighting the atrocity of commodification.
