For ten years or more, I've been illustrating football kits and uploading the resulting graphics to my Kitbliss website. Kitbliss is my attempt to provide a place on the web to showcase as many different football kit designs from around the world as possible - an online gallery, if you will, to celebrate the history of the football kit itself.

As you'll see if you visit the Kitbliss website (www.kitbliss.co.nz), many teams - both clubs and countries - are featured, as well as a section on football kit templates and a wide range of 'fantasy' kits.

So how can you help? It's easy. By donating as little as $1 per month, you'll be helping me to buy books and other reference material which is vital to help me illustrate football kits accurately.

But wait a minute, I hear you cry - 'surely everything's on the internet now?'  Well, no, to put it bluntly. Though there's lots of imagery and video footage, much of which has helped me out thus far, there's still a huge number of kits that have not been recorded visually and uploaded to the web. Fortunately, they have appeared in print and are waiting to be discovered by me... but being someone of minuscule disposable income, I can't currently afford to buy the publications they appear in.

And that's where you come in. Your donations will allow me to buy more books, match-day programmes, magazines and other material to help me illustrate more kits in all the detail you crave. As well as that, you'll also be providing valuable help as I pay off the annual fees for web space and the Kitbliss domain name.

So please support me and Kitbliss on Patreon. Your generosity means Kitbliss will grow and grow and become the wonderful resource I always intended it to be in the future. Thanks in advance for whatever you can donate.

Best wishes,
Chris.

As a proud supporter of Kitbliss, you'll be ensuring that I create at least five new kit illustrations every week - something I can't ordinarily promise due to time restrictions.


Not only that, but I guarantee to illustrate one kit every month for a nominated team of your choice, be it a club team or a national team. That means the page for your chosen team will continue to grow and grow as time goes on - and it'll all be thanks to you.


You'll also have access to all podcasts and vodcasts I produce exclusively for Patreon supporters and NO-ONE ELSE. Yep, you'll be able to look smug when you meet someone who doesn't follow Kitbliss on Patreon, because you'll have had access to all the good stuff and they won't have.

Same as Friend of Kitbliss, plus your name will be listed as an Associate Producer on the website, AND you'll get three kits illustrated for your nominated team, not one.
Senior Associate Producer

Same as Associate Producer, plus you'll get a page of your choice dedicated to you in a name credit, AND you'll be able to specifically choose the three kits I illustrate for your nominated team.
Goals
$10 of $20 per month
When I reach $20 per month in donations, I'll produce a quarterly video about the kit history of a team voted for by you, the supporters of Kitbliss on Patreon.
