WHO AM I?

Hello! My name's John Fisher and I'm an artist from Scotland, UK.
I currently work from home creating pencil portraits of people and their furry friends. The majority of my work is in the form of babies, dogs, horses and happy couples. Occasionally I get a request for a landscape or piece of tattoo design but the portrait work is my comfort zone and it's the area I want to push with the ultimate goal of making this a sustainable career. My hope is that you'll read my explanation below and feel inclined to help me achieve
 this.
Even the smallest contribution will make a difference.


WHY I NEED YOUR HELP

I've scribbled and drawn since I was old enough to hold a pencil. It was a spare time passion until 6 or 7 years ago when I finally gained the courage to try and make my hobby work for me.
I began to draw for family and friends and created a Facebook page where I posted them online and built a small following. Eventually the commissions started to trickle in.
Before long I found myself in a vicious cycle of having pieces to draw but not enough time to draw them, the day job taking up 50+ hours of my week. Having some clients was great but what I needed was time to draw in order to grow my client base to a sustainable point. I would only have that time if I took a massive risk and made this my only job but obviously the bills would still need to be paid while I did this.
After 4 years of this "Will I, won't I?" cycle I decided that I'd never know unless I gave it a shot so I saved all I could for a few months, quit the day job and took the plunge at the start of August 2017.
The reason I'm here is to try and gain a small safety net of support so that I can ensure the lights stay on while I continue to build my business.

I have 3 goals here on Patreon. If I achieve them I'll have gained that boost I need but more importantly I'll be able to reward my supporters more and more for their contributions. As time goes on I plan to add more goals, expand on my rewards and give back as much as I can to the people who make it all happen. 
Thank you again for visiting and taking the time to read this. 
Words can't
 describe how grateful I am to anyone who chooses to help.
Best wishes, John.
