Katherine Makowsky is creating an illustration portfolio

patrons

$45
per month

Hey there! I'm Katherine, a freelance illustrator from Waco, Texas.
My work is inspired by mystery, magic, nature, and the uncanny. 

WHY PATREON

I'm currently shifting my focus from decorative art to a more narrative-centered, illustrative style. Ideally, I'd love to be working in the publishing industry, making art for book covers and magazine articles. At this point, I need more training in this kind of work to build a marketable portfolio. I'm hoping to use my income from Patreon to pay for classes that will help me hone my skills so I can create a competitive illustration portfolio. 

Patreon is a way for you to support my goals in exchange for a deeper look into my process. I'll be sharing sketchbook work, techniques and tips, and a look into my thoughts about art that I don't share anywhere else. Your support will help me on my journey to become a self-sufficient professional artist, a goal I hope to pursue for the rest of my life.

There are different levels of support you can commit to, starting at just $1 per month. Check out the column to the right to read about each tier. Every little bit helps, and no pledge is too small! You can edit or cancel your pledge at any time-- no pressure.

Goals
$45 of $99 per month
With $99 per month, I can enroll in Watts Atelier's basic online program. They have an incredible classical drawing foundation, where I'll receive real feedback from the instructors on assignments. What I like about this program is that it offers classes in both classical drawing and illustration-- so you can apply what you learn to commercial art jobs.
