About

     My name is John Bishop, and in 2015, my partner and I decided that we would quit our day jobs and begin a full-time freelance career in fine art.  It has been a wonderful and terrifying experience.  The best part of this journey has been all that we've learned, the amazing people we've met, and the places we've gone.  I decided it was time to to share some of my experience in conversation with other creatives, and collectors, and that lead me to Patreon.
     Patreon is an online platform that allows you to connect with, and support, an artist directly.  So why would someone become a Patron?  People have been supporting artists for centuries, and I suspect that is because the collector and the artist create a bond, a relationship.  I know that's been true in my experience.  I support artists not because I think their work is a good investment (and it is), and not because I want to show off my collection (and I do), but because I'm dying to see what the artist will create next.  I want to be part of that.  
     Patreon allows you to give a monthly gift to me, to assist me in creating more art, making ends meet, buying more art supplies, and producing more video and online content.  Apart from my undying gratitude, I in turn offer you certain gifts in appreciation.  Just chose from four levels of patronage, and i will send you the swag and content for that tier.  It's little in return for what you will be giving me, and you would be amazed at how far even a small pledge can go.
     For one dollar a month, you will receive early access to my monthly newsletter, and your name will also be entered into a quarterly drawing for an original artwork by me.
     At the five dollar level, you'll get early access to the newsletter and the quarterly drawing ticket, but you will also get early access to all my video content as well.  Your name will also appear on a donor's list on all my printed and video content.
     At ten dollars per month, you get all the prior incentives, but you also get an annual free gift from me, delivered to your door.  
     At twenty five dollars per month, you get all the other stuff, but you will also get a tote bag with my art on it, and a limited edition print of my artwork each year.  The edition will be limited to the number of patrons enrolled at this level and above.
    At 50 dollars per month or more, you will of course get all the other prizes, but I will also  create an annual original piece of art just for you. And because you have the confidence in me, I will include you in a special Advisory Council to help me run my art business in the very best way possible. 
     I want to stress though that everything that I currently offer for free, will still be free.  And if you are unable or disinclined to donate, that is totally fine with me.  I love you for more than your money.  You can also change your mind and withdraw your pledge, or change your donation level, at any time.  
     If you do like my work, and you would like to help, I am forever in your debt.  I am committed to spending the rest of my life pursuing my art.  I'd love to have you along for the ride.

Thanks,
John
