Hello there!
My name is Kevin T. Chin, I've been a concept artist in games for more than 10 years and am very happy with where I am with my full-time day job. In fact, it gives me a great opportunity to work on personal work after hours and explore self-published and creator-owned endeavors I've been dreaming of.  Last year I decided to jump start this "experiment" into the world of conventions and start selling prints/original art and meeting the people who like my work. I've learned a lot and am continually improving how to self-promote myself and this art business I've started.

What is Patreon?
Patreon offers a great chance for current and future supporters (that's you guys and gals, yeah you in the back) that normally can't make it out to conventions or don't have space for big prints to still support me for as little as $1 a month. Below you can see the full list of options offered. I am going with a monthly reoccurring campaign which means patrons will be charged every 1st of the month in whatever category they've chosen and then after have the option for decrease/increase their pledge for the next month. 
Please read the Patreon FAQ for more in-depth questions. 
And here's a video with short breakdown of how it works. What is Patreon?

What am I making? 
I will be continuing my journey into the convention scene and creating artwork for prints. You will get updates on work-in-progress images that I usually don't show, sketches that never make it to a final painting. Also, I am strongly considering working on a new sequential web comic which Patreon supporters will get first look at when it does happen. As a concept artist, I tend to do a lot of visual development for personal projects and story ideas I have so you'll get to see those go from sketches to final concept art. Perhaps I'll make vlogs when I'm at the conventions or about new projects I'm working on for my day job. Who knows, maybe that trendy thing called "Tutorials" if i get enough requests. Although I'm hesitant to share PSDs, I'm considering handing small res versions for layer purposes only. Trust me though, you'd be disappointed, there's no magical secret in those layers. This will be an iterative process as I will be interacting and engaging with you, the patron, on what everyone is interested in seeing.

What are my goals?
I don't expect to be going "full-time" with my personal work, it just doesn't pay the bills and I love my day job. This is just a huge passion project/hobby for me and any profit from Patreon will only help towards overhead expenses such as artist alley tables fees, printing cost, and plane/hotel fees. They get in the way from meeting you awesome people at shows!
