Who are you?Hello there! Kav P here. You probably know my cheeky self from Twitter, although you might equally know me from YouTube or from past lives online (go away, DeviantArt).
I love making things. ALL kinds of things.
Why a Patreon?I wanted to be an animator for the longest time. But I chose linguistics over my first love, and lo, I am a translator. I translate Japanese, Spanish and Mandarin into English, and can also speak several other languages to varying degrees. I love my job, and I love being able to travel and work anywhere, but between doing all these things, I often find it hard to justify spending time on making art and fun things.
This is where you come in, my friend! Knowing I have the support of patrons would mean that I can take time off translating/looking for work to dedicate towards my various creative projects. It would also do wonders for my motivation!
What will you do, exactly?Welp, I'm glad you asked! Here's a selection of what I have done and what I will do with your support. Click on any of the images to see more details about each linked project:
And with your support: a long-form shoujo manga parody, and maybe Emvok will even get an ending!
And with your support: Retrospective film/television reviews from an intersectional lens, reviews of films suitable for "bad movie nights" from my years of experience holding events
Games (with your support)
- StoryTales - a co-op role-playing card game where you each play multiple characters, each with their own personal goals - some treacherous!
- Lepus - an adorable "burrow defense" table-top game featuring rabbits versus hares.
- Bean Counters - a Risk-like board game which looks at the surprisingly vicious world of the international bean trade.
And with your support: a rap parody about the alt-right called "Lose Your Race", a novelty children's album about logical fallacies, a series of original acapella compositions in a number of languages
Streaming (with your support)
- Retro game streaming - I've previously streamed Donkey Kong Country 1 and 2, and once I am in a location with more stable Internet, hope to do a retro gaming stream at least once a week
- Draw and chat streams - When I'm back into drawing, I'd love to host draw and chat streams where you can watch the drawing process in real-time!
And with your support: dramatic readings, streaming compilations, out-takes, and other cheek
Where will my money go?Because this isn't my primary income, I'm not interested in charging per month. I'd much rather get your support as a celebration of me having completed a) one project or b) two small projects (including artwork)! Having said that, I plan to log all the support that I get on Patreon into a fund that will go directly back into my projects: buying streaming equipment, art supplies, sheet music, paying collaborators, etc.
Thank you so much. Let's make art!
