About Marceline Smith

Hello! Welcome to my Patreon

I'm Marceline Smith, a kawaii writer and illustrator based on the West Coast of Scotland. I've been self-employed since 2007 and still juggle a lot of jobs to keep myself afloat.

  • I have an online shop as Asking For Trouble to sell my original kawaii character goods, craft patterns and printables.
  • I run the Super Cute Kawaii blog with daily posts about kawaii & Japan.
  • I create surface patterns for print-on-demand sites and licensing.
  • I self-publish zines and guides about Japan, crafts and my creative life - and have written a real book too, The Super Cute Book of Kawaii.
  • I work freelance, helping clients with Shopify, graphic design and consultancy.
  • I have a part time job in marketing 2 days a week!

I also love crafts, travel, reading and decorating my home so my life is very full.



Why Patreon?

I'm tired of hustling for attention on social media, having my posts hidden by algorithms that want me to spend all my time online and having barriers put up by corporations who want me to think of my followers as marketing potential and not friends.

I want to make personal connections with people who like what I do and share things with the people who want to see them. I hope I can build a new community that supports my creativity in a more personal way so that I can spend more time working on my own cute projects, rather than freelance work.



What's in it for you?

Become a member or supporter and your pledges will help keep me going and working on new fun things. Every day is different for me and you'll get a peek behind the scenes with personal updates, first looks at new characters, products and blog posts, the opportunity to vote in polls and some cute rewards.

Depending on which tier you choose, you'll also get discount codes for my shop and digital downloads, free wallpapers and printables, access to a secret shop with exclusive products, and even happy mail in the post.



Rewards!

Here's a look at some past rewards including printables, wallpapers, exclusive products and Happy Mail. There's lots of exclusive written content that's available to patrons too - including my design process, posts from Japan, Q&As and more.

Thanks so much for reading

Please have a look at the tiers and free content and consider supporting me. If you can't afford to join at the moment, click that Follow button under my avatar. You won't get the rewards but you'll still get access to some of my posts.

You can also follow me on Instagram and Twitter, read my Asking For Trouble blog and Super Cute Kawaii, and download freebies from my new Ko-fi Shop.
Goals
92% complete
When I reach this goal you'll be covering the cost of my PO Box which lets me run the surprise mail swap and keep my home address private (as a woman living alone this means a lot).
