About Helen M. Waters

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! My name is Helen M. Waters (the “M” being very important) and I create illustrations. All kinds, black/white and color, for children’s books, greeting cards, poems, and anything I can think of.

I’ve been drawing since I can remember, when and wherever I could, and over the years developed several different styles. One of them was spawned from doodles in my school notebook margins, and grew into greeting card designs like these:

  
Then I started doing a few cartoons for websites and greeting cards:

   


Then one day a persistent little fellow popped into my head and refused to leave until I drew him down on paper. His name is Sprout, and here he is as he first appeared:

            

As you can see, I have a LOT of varied projects going, and this is where the Patreon site comes in.  Patreon is set up so that you can make a monthly contribution to support an artist whose work you like. For me, Sprout has a whole world that I want to discover, I have a couple of children’s books in the works, new greeting card designs, and I need more time!  Your support will help me dig in and get my projects moving.

I have so much in store for my patrons! You’ll get a first look at everything - works in progress, ideas, sketches, stories and more - before they go on any website or public forum, PLUS some great rewards and opportunities for us to interact. I’m very excited to share everything I do, - I'll be uploading new stuff at least every week, more if I can. Your appreciation of my work means the world to me, and your support would too. THANK YOU!
Goals
2% complete
This goal would go a very long way to helping pay for drawing supplies, marketing work and product development. It's a first step toward a dream of making my work more widely available, and more than just a hobby.
