Why... Hello there!

Allow me to introduce myself... my name is Tom Hodges. I've been a full time illustrator and comic artist for over 15 years. I have worked on various properties such as The Simpsons, Lord of the Rings, Transformers, and HALO just to name a few. But what I'm really known for is my work in the Star Wars Universe. Ranging from Comic work on the Clone Wars web comics for starwars.com, in which I co-created (with Pablo Hidalgo) several characters for, to my Star Wars Celebration pieces, most notably the "Star Wars Universe Dream Park" Map from Star Wars Celebration V in Orlando (below, 2010).



So I've been around, done some things and I am currently working to build a comic universe of my own (along with my wife, Terri) with Antiis Comics. But that's not why I'm here...

Everyday I post artwork to my Instagram (hodgesart) and not a day goes by do I have folks tell me they would love to commission work, but they just seem to not have it in their budget to do. This is where my Patreon Page comes in...

Essentially, I am going to give folks an opportunity to purchase art on, for lack of a better term, "layaway". Please read carefully below on the various options you can choose from.

Art Appreciation: $1 or more per month
This is you being supportive of the creation of art. I will be doing LIVE Art Streams on my Tiwtch channel (hodgesart72) three times per week (sometimes more if I'm feeling froggy!) and you are invited to watch, chat and ask questions.

Physical Graffiti: $5 or more per month
This is the first tier where you actually will be sent something! Through out the year, you'll be able to watch me create artwork LIVE on my Twitch channel (hodgesart72) at least three times per week. towards the end of the year, I'll choose my personal favorites from the past year and you guys will get to vote on which will become a 5" x 7" Mini-Print that you will be sent, signed and numbered (Limited to 100, Domestic S&H will be included, International S&H will be calculated and can be sent via PayPal separately when ready to ship)

Put a Pin in it!: $15 or more per month
OK, this one is pretty nifty... and LIMITED to only 50 backers. Essentially, you'll watch me on Twitch (as mentioned in the previous Tiers at hodgesart72), you'll get the 5" x 7" Mini-Print AND a Patreon Excluive Enamel Pin created just for my Patreon Backers in this and the higher tiers. And this will just be the first in a series... stick with me for the long haul and you'll have a new exclusive pin every year! (Again, this will be limited to 50 Backers, Domestic S&H will be included, International S&H will be calculated and can be sent via PayPal separately when ready to ship)

Headshot!: $20 or more per month

OK, now this one is our first "Original Art" Tier. Limited to 25, you'll get the 5" x 7" Mini-Print, the Patreon Exclusive Enamel Pin and bi-monthly, you'll receive a 5.5" x 8.5" Head Sketch of a character of your choice (examples below)! You'll receive 6 original sketches per year! (Again, this will be limited to 25 Backers, Domestic S&H will be included, International S&H will be calculated and can be sent via PayPal separately when ready to ship)


11" x 17", Single Character Plan: $25 or more per month
The first of the "Layaway" style Tiers and is limited to FIVE spots. Here's how it will work... You'll get the Patreon Enamel Pin and 5" x 7" Mini-Print but you'll be working towards an 11" x 17", full pen-ink and color Commission of the character of your choice (see examples below). And the progress of your pieces will be part of the LIVE streams (hodgesart72). After your first four payments, I will Live Stream your Pencils. After another four payments, the inking of your piece. After the final four payments, I will color your piece live and pack it up to ship! You'll get to see your pieces created from start to finish. (Again, this will be limited to 5 Backers, Domestic S&H will be included, International S&H will be calculated and can be sent via PayPal separately when ready to ship)




11" x 17" Multiple Character Plan: $50 or more per month
Exactly like the Single character plan but you can have up to THREE characters in the piece. Here are a few examples below.



Well, that's pretty much how this will work! I've been trying my best to find a way to make Patreon work for you guys and I think this is the way to go! I hope you dig it enough to support me and Tune into my Twitch Channel, hodgesart72 and check out the schedule for Live Art Streams, co-hosted by my wife, Terri. I think you guys will enjoy it!
