Glad you stopped by! If you've watched my painting videos before, thank you! If you haven't yet, well, there's a bunch of content waiting for you right now, so head to my YouTube channel first, will ya? ;)

I'm a professional artist with 15 years' experience in the film, TV, game, and print industries - primarily as a concept artist and illustrator. I also happen to believe that it's the duty of experienced artists to pass on what they've learned, with no BS and for as low-cost as possible. It's for that reason that I'm a passionate teacher. I currently teach at CGMA, and have previously taught at Academy of Art University, Centennial College, and more.

I've also been making YouTube content since 2008. My videos range from painting fundamentals, to applied painting demos, to insights into how to grow (and work) as a creative person. Many of you have reached out and encouraged me to keep producing videos, and that's exactly what I plan to do! This patreon is just a small way for you to help me out as I balance a busy freelance schedule with the time required to make quality painting videos. 

Thank you very much!

Why a per-creation basis and not monthly? How often can I expect a new release?
I typically spend anywhere between 15 - 40 hours per video (the more edited and refined a video is, the longer it takes to produce). As of 2017, my plan is to release new content every 4-6 weeks. For this reason, it makes the most sense to ask for your support per video, rather than monthly. (Patreon provides the option to set a cap per month to ensure you're never overextending your budget!)

What do I get in return? 
As you'll see, there's lots of juicy stuff in exchange for your support; it's all outlined in the rewards section. These include early access to new videos, exclusive Q&As and streaming, free Gumroad videos, access to works-in-progress and unpublished close-ups, Photoshop brushes, free art prints, and extra tutorials not available on my YouTube channel.

Got any other questions? 
No problem - just email me at [email protected].

The mentorship consists of four sessions. Each session lasts two weeks, and includes a live lesson, an assignment, and video feedback for that assignment. So in total, you will get:

This one-on-one painting mentorship program is recommended for beginner to novice level painters. I will tailor the live lessons and assignments to your specific skill level, and focus on building the fundamental skills, tools and knowledge that will accelerate your development! More advanced artists may take this mentorship as well. Feel free to email me about designing a custom curriculum that will focus on exactly what you need to work on.

Goals
159 of 300 patrons
Your support helps me to keep making high-quality educational content (and pulling the all-nighters required to do so!). 300 Patrons is an incredible number. I don't know what the reward here will be just yet, but I will think of something great! But one thing's for sure: the more patrons behind me, the more I can actually prioritize content-creation, which means more videos will get released.
