Hello! I'm an independent artist! I create a broad spectrum of art largely inspired by insects, other animals, and nature - everything from the scientifically accurate to the cartoony and adorable, with lots in between. I love designing characters and coming up with my own ideas and designs to delight and inspire my audience. You might know me from my Bugdana designs, my enamel pins including the Insecta Geometrica series, my toony bug doodles, or perhaps for my work in furry fandom creating the "Friends of Anthrocon" and working with hundreds of private clients to bring their characters to life.

Patreon gives you a chance to get on board my creative journey at whatever level is comfortable. If you've enjoyed my work in person or online, you can get early looks at works-in-progress and peeks at the process as I create new things, prepare for events, and experiment with concepts and product possibilities. Your support also increases my wiggle room to pursue more unique projects including original illustrations and comics, and it allows me to invest in needed supplies and equipment to keep creating the best I can!

Thanks to my patrons' support so far, I've already been able to upgrade my workstation and table setup for conventions and set aside time to study with scientists and fellow artists. I hope to continue pursuing more opportunities to improve, learn, and collaborate in the future, and having folks who believe in what I do along for the ride makes it even better and more worth doing!

When and how will I get the rewards for my pledge tier?
Rewards for each pledge level will be processed and sent after pledges go through each month to ensure fairness - so a new pledge placed in June is charged and fulfilled in early July. Access to digital rewards, such as the sketch pack or coupon code for my shop, is sent via Patreon messages. Physical rewards like the postcard or Bug Club gifts are mailed to the address you specify.

How else can I support you and your creative journey?
For no-commitment support, use my Tip Jar on Ko-fi!
You can also find, follow, and support my work here:

And if you like what I do, tell others about it! That always helps and is free forever!

With your help, I can create many more things for everyone to enjoy than I can alone! Don't be a stranger! 🐛

Hitting this goal will allow me to spend more time monthly on my own projects and make more awesome stuff for you all! I'll be able to make some videos now and then about my process, inspiration, ongoing goals, and more. All patrons will be given the opportunity to ask questions. Patron names will be listed in the video as thanks with Sketchbook and up read out loud.
