Welcome to my little corner of the woods! 

If you like my art and would like to be among the first to see what I'm up to, or are happy to help me create the things I (and you) love - you've come to the right place! 



🎨 Join a bunch of fun people (across fandoms like Tolkien, the Potterverse, Star Wars or just anything Fantasy) who get to see sketches and drawings I never post anywhere else, and who are just a great and supportive community talking about their favourite things.

🎨 Got a question about technique, my work, or anything else of interest? Join the discussion anytime in the comments! Catch me on livestreams and look over my shoulder as I paint, and ask questions along the way.

🎨 Take part in giveaways and raffles several times a year to win calendars, prints, or small originals. 

🎨  Get first dibs at new originals and prints. For the art collectors among you, just note me when there's something new in the works that you'd be interested in buying. Being a patron of mine allows you to see new arkwork before the rest of the world!

🎨 Get coupon codes for my Etsy shop, and special discounts just for Patrons. (And if you're a supporter of mine and order something off Etsy, I always throw in some small extras, in which I try to guess what you're most likely to enjoy!) 

🎨 Never miss an update again - get new art and sketches, announcements for Etsy sales and giveaways, and livestream links delivered straight to you by email!

🎨 Be as active in the community as you like; whether you want to lurk or interact a lot - anything goes!

A little bit about me 
I'm a teacher living in Germany, teaching Latin and English at a private Grammar School near Aachen. I only have a part-time job at my school, and in the other half of my life, I'm also an illustrator, working in watercolours. You can find my work on my blog: www.goldseven.de

How you can help me 
For over ten years, I've been juggling teaching and creating. In 2014, I reduced my school work to a half-time position, so I make half my living with my art these days. Your sponsorship is a godsend that helps me to keep my precious art-time focused on the things that I particularly love to create - and that you love to see! 

How Patreon helps you to help me and how it works
Patreon is a beautiful thing. It is like an ongoing Kickstarter: instead of supporting one product, you sponsor artists, and their work, with a monthly amount that you set yourself. and which starts as low as 1$ per month - and the rewards are ongoing, too! 

Take a look at the reward levels in the sidebar, and pick yours!

You can cancel, downgrade, or upgrade your support at any time. If you're not sure how the financial aspect works, here's the link to Patreon's FAQ.
