Iris Compiet is creating art... and lifting the veil off the Faeries

patrons




My name is Iris Compiet and I'm an artist living and working in the Netherlands. I grew up on stories like those of the brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen. You know, the 'real' dark fairytales where hearts and lungs were eaten! A passion for myth, fantasy and legends were present at an early age and when I was 7 I vowed to become an artist. Now, 30 somewhat years later I work as an artist and illustrator for clients all over the world. As an illustrator I'm bringing to life their stories, participate in gallery shows, write tutorials for magazines and work on my own personal projects, loving every single bit of it!



So besides working for clients I enjoy working on personal projects, one of the projects that I'm currently working on is called Faeries of the Faultlines, which started in June of 2016. I began sketching daily faeries and posting them on Instagram. Not the cute, pink kind but the spirits of nature, those who live just on the fringe of our reality. I'm discovering new creatures everywhere and I have gotten permission to tell those stories and share them in a book called Faeries of the Faultlines. In March of 2018 this book will be published thanks to the generous help of many people believing in Faeries. This is a dream come true and to make the dream even better, none other than Brian Froud is writting the intro for this book! If you want to know more, please head on over to the website Faeries of the Faultlines you can subscribe to the newsletter there to keep in the loop of all things Faerie. 


I enjoy sharing my art, creating new creatures, telling their stories, sharing my failures (yes, I too fail a lot and I believe that failure is part of the process) and hopefully inspire others to make their dream come true. This Patreon page will help me explore the mysteries, the stories, the myths and legends. And I will be taking you along for the ride! You'll get behind the scenes looks at what's on my drawing board, you'll get to flick through my sketchbooks. You'll get to wander around my world, even suggest what I'll be doing next for a painting. Please note that the rewards aren't set in stone, they will grow and change to fit your wishes. If you decide to become a Patron the links to the digital rewards will be posted in the Patreon Creator's Feed along with any other information. Physical rewards are shipped to the address you provide and any shipping fees are included in your pledge. In order to get your rewards where they need to go please make sure your contact and shipping information is up to date, not in the least because I like to surprise people so I've decided to randomly give away some art! I pick one patron a month at random and it doesn't matter if you are at the $2 level or the $50 level! So make sure your address is up to date.



Good question! Patreon is a platform where people who like my art can support me, look at it as a tip jar. If you like what I do and would like me to continue sharing and telling you all about it this is the place to back me. In return for your 'patronage', you get exclusive access to content, to sketches, behind the scenes, to tutorials and who knows what! If you are a first time Patron you can find answers to most of your questionshere FAQ. Becoming a Patron of the Arts is really simple and you can adjust your pledge whenever you want!



So far that's it... I think. Like I've said, this Patreon page of mine is evolving, I'm testing the waters so to speak. I will be adding reward tiers and expanding as I go along. Adding AMA (ask me anything) sessions, maybe do Google Hangout sessions with you as well... because it's YOU that makes this possible. It's YOU I need to thank, if you weren't there, liking my work I wouldn't be able to do this. So thank you!

Goals
77% complete
Reaching this goal is huge! It means Patreon is allowing me to fully be an independent artist without the need of any client work. That means I can focus on building my world, the Faultlines into more! It means I can spend my time on creating more content for you, more tutorials and more art. I'm beyond grateful and I'll be sure to add extra's, as a thank you.
