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! 

🎨  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 discounts off prints and merch in my Etsy shop. (And if you're a supporter of mine and order something off Etsy, I always throw in some small extras like postcards, stickers, or jelly beans!) 

🎨 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 at a Grammar School near Aachen. (I used to teach English as well, but had to drop that because of my eye disease.) 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:

How Patrons 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. in 2018, I picked up a rare eye condition called acute macular neuroretinopathy, which means I can no longer draw as much as I used to. This makes me doubly (and triply) glad about your sponsorship, which helps me to keep my precious art-time focused on the things that I particularly love to create - and that you love to see! 

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.
