About Lydia Burris

Greetings Friends, Miscellany Enthusiasts, Strange ART Supporters, Lovers of the Weird and Watchers from the great vast planes of the interwebs! I welcome you to my patreon page!

If you are here to support my path in any way, even just by watching with morbid curiosity, I THANK YOU truly, from the bottom of my spleen to tips of my eyelashes!

PATREON UPDATE!

December 2020

I am a mixed media imaginer, collector and dreamer. 
For years I have been weaving worlds, creating characters, diving into chaos, playing with mixed materials, capturing the world around me, and screaming nonsense into the void... 
FINALLY, I have found a place where all of this can live in harmony: 

THE DARKNESS DREAMING ZINE! 

Darkness Dreaming is an homage to sacred nonsense,
and promises to be a cacophony of madness and wonder.
The zine mostly revolves around the art and imaginings of
Lydia Burris and friends, and will be printed quarterly.
It will include nonsense, dark things, not so dark things,
silly things, and surrealism. It will be filled with layers of art,
words, poetry, photos, story vignettes, and other creative miscellany.

Each issue will be filled with my imaginings and creations, as well as a few guest creators who wish to be involved. 
***
If you join my patreon, you can subscribe to the zine to make sure you get the next copy! I will also be updating sneak peeks of my art making process and creative life. 

WHAT IM OFFERING
Check out the tiers - I have a basic support option, a zine option, a bonus package option, and a sponsorship option!

Each tier comes with these basics: 
  • 10% off my etsy store
  • Sneak peeks of my art, process, and special offers
  • Involvement in special decisions I make with the zine 
    (such as title suggestions and polls) 

  • _______________________________________


    Extended commentary of my process: 
    Sometimes it seems as if I have my toes in everything! I display at art shows, travel and vend at conventions, write my own websites, make art for myself, write and compose poetry, teach at a community college and ponder the universe. I paint, draw, sculpt, make installations, do digital art, take photos, write and go slowly insane.

    As a creator, I easily become obsessed with the nonsense, the experimental and the other worldly. I am always and forever trying new things in the studio. Being a teacher as well, I often experiment with new ways to open creative minds and expose my students to unexpected methods, materials and subjects. Because of this I SAVE EVERYTHING. Materials as well as creative experiments. Bits and pieces that become magic when separated and taken out of context. Ephemera, combined with cut text, mixed with painted color and imagery suddenly become a talisman of imagination and dreaming. I want to share this passion with you!

    Your support, interest, and interaction help to make that all possible!


    If you have ANY QUESTIONS or Comments, please send me a message.

    To each and every one of you who reach out and step into my realm, thank you so very much!

    IMPORTANT NOTES! PLEASE READ.


    HOW THE MONTHLY CHARGE WORKS WITH A QUARTERLY REWARD: 

    --- When you join,  you will be charged for that month, and the first of the month after that. Once you have reached 3 payments, your total payment equals the quarterly reward cost. 
    --- If you joined in late in the quarter, and you want the next zine but your payments don't add up to 3 payments yet, you'll have to send an extra payment to me through another means such as paypal. Send a message and we can work it out. 
    --- If you joined in December 2020 and you end up with an EXTRA payment by the time March 2021 rolls around, I can either refund you for the final payment so you are on track, or I can send EXTRA GOODIES, or you can just stay a payment ahead. (you get to decide) 

    IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT ISSUE 01: The End of Things
    --- The subscription tiers will lead to ISSUE 02 in March of 2021.
    --- ISSUE 01 is not available through the subscription tiers. If you want to get issue 01, you will have to get it through my etsy or privately through paypal. Send me a message and I can direct you to the link. 

    NOTES ON CHARGES

    --- REWARD CHARGES 
    • Your account will be charged on the day you join, and then on the first of the month after that.  
    • If you switch tiers, you will be charged for the new tier amount on the first of the following month. (according to what I read) 
    --- TAX
    • Depending on where you live, physical rewards will be taxed. This is a change made to patreon in mid 2020, and I cannot change or manipulate this fact.

    Goals
    28 of 50 patrons
    When I reach 50 patrons I will post a video of me doing a happy little Jig, and I will thank everyone by name. Once I reach this level, I will have a better idea of what I can do on the next goal. Hopefully it will involve adventure.
