Hello! Welcome to the Trouble Club

I'm Marceline Smith, a writer and illustrator based on the West Coast of Scotland. I've been self-employed since 2007 - to pay the bills I design original kawaii character goods as Asking For Trouble, run the Super Cute Kawaii blog, self-publish Japan guides and do some freelance web design, marketing and consultancy. I've also written my first book!

Why Patreon?

I grew up inspired by Riot Grrrl, zines and the DIY music scene and I'm tired of hustling for attention on social media 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. So I've started the Trouble Club! 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 taking on freelance work.


What's in it for you?

Become a member or supporter and your pledges will help me create new things for fun and get to know you better. I update this page at least twice a week with exclusive behind the scenes updates, first looks at new characters and products and more personal blog posts.

Depending on which tier you choose, you'll also get a discount code for my shop, free wallpapers and printables, access to my paid zines and printables archives and even happy mail in the post.


Rewards!

Here's a look at some of the rewards so far - New Year Happy Mail, Character Cafe printable stickers, Kawaii Skies & Stormy Weather wallpapers, Back To School printables set.

Here's an index post of all the exclusive content that's available to patrons - blog posts, design process, printables, wallpapers and more.

Thanks so much for reading - and I hope you'll join the Trouble Club.
