Marceline Smith is creating cute stuff

patrons

Hello! I'm Marceline Smith, an illustrator, blogger, designer and zinemaker based on the West Coast of Scotland. I've been self-employed since 2007 - to pay the bills I sell 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 grew up inspired by Riot Grrrl, zines and the DIY music scene and I'm tired of hustling for attention on social media. I want to make personal connections with people who like what I do and share things with people who want to see them, without the barriers of algorithms and reach and advertising. So I've started the Trouble Club!


Become a member or supporter and your pledges will help me create new things for fun and get to know each and every one of you, through chats on this page, Q&As and fun packages in the mail. I can't wait to meet you!

You'll definitely get value for money as I'll update this page regularly with weekly 'into it' posts, behind the scenes updates, freebies and first looks at new characters and products. You'll also get a discount code for my shop, access to my paid zines and printables and lots more. 

You can read more about the reasons I've joined Patreon - and how I hope I can build a new community that supports my creativity in a more personal way. Thanks so much for reading - and I hope you'll join the Trouble Club.
