About Ink and Feet

Hi, I'm Steven.

I'm a writer, videomaker, illustrator, and cute-monster-maker. I'm the author of a much-loved book on depression, creator of some award-winning digital campaigns, and coder of more than a dozen widely-used open source libraries and apps like Mindful Browsing.

For the past six years, I've been traveling the world and taking folks with me, writing a letter every Sunday from somewhere in the world. Now, in our travel-paused, post-Covid world, I'm taking you into the studio.

My readers have been such a core part of my journeys - and honestly, a big part of my life. You all pick me up when I'm down, share your own stories of triumph and struggle (many of you, like me, get regular visits from depression) - you journey with me, into the wilderness of life.

As the letters have grown, I've struggled with two tensions:
  • How can I connect all of you awesome people with each other? And,
  • How can I get the time to just focus on making writing and videos for this community, and bring the best stuff to you?
A few months ago, I took a fresh look at Patreon - and I realized that it could do both of things, at once. :)

So I'm asking for your support - both in helping me pay my bills as a writer and filmmaker, but also in being a part of this community.

I'm sharing bonus things here on Patreon - behind the scenes stuff, and projects and pieces that don't make it into my weekly letter. If you've ever wanted to know more about where things come from, or see a more unfiltered view into my creative life or travels, you'll love it here.

But I'm even more excited about what this space can be for us all, together.  About projects like Glimpses, a weekly creative prompt to give you a view all across this community and the world.  About the ideas you all have, and what we can build together. 

If you've enjoyed my letters or found the work I've made valuable, please consider joining us in the community.  It's going to be fun. :)
