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! 



IMPORTANT NOTE. I want every potential Patron to know the following: 2018 has been a tough year for me, with an eye disease (on top of other things) that forces me to re-learn to see. This means that I'm not quite as active at the moment as I would like to be (on average, I make about five to six posts a month right now). I'm happy for everyone who decides to support me nonetheless! 

🎨 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! 

🎨  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 artwork 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, sketches, and announcements for Etsy sales 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 
I have a rare eye condition called acute macular neuroretinopathy, which began in early 2018 and means I can no longer draw as much as I used to.
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! 

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.

Tiers
My Crowd! 💗
$1 or more per month 28 patrons
This is a pay-what-you-want Patreon. You get early access of everything I create, as well as access to a Patron-only feed (sketches not shown anywhere else), plus whatever little giveaways and specials I'll be doing.

No rules. No promises. Just art as I can make it. And as much love as you care to give. 
Goals
$500 – reached! per month
If you support me to a fantastic 500$ per month, I'll get the equipment to properly record watercolour processes - which will then be available as video tutorials.
