Also, you get access to the patron-only feed, where I talk about what I'm up to, what my plans are, what I had for lunch, etc.
You get access to behind-the-scenes stuff, including work-in-progress images, and the source code to my daily sketches, as well as the patron-only feed.
You get the patron-only stuff, and the behind the scenes stuff. Also, four times a year, I'll send you actual physical objects in the mail. It might be sketches, it might be test prints, it might be something I just thought was cool. I'll be in touch about what sort of things interest you.
You may have seen some of my bots, like Uncharted Atlas, which invents maps of fictional places, like you might find in a cheap paperback fantasy novel, or Landsat Bot, which shares interesting images from NASA's Landsat satellites, or Botston, which generates (and sings!) new lyrics to the "Gaston" song from Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Or maybe you prefer maps of invented cities, photographs of imaginary architecture, reminders of your own mortality, soothing GIFs of spirals, or Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" in tweet form.
I want to do more projects like these, and I want to write about how these things work - like these long interactive explanations of how the maps and the placenames are created for Uncharted Atlas. Unfortunately, all this takes a long time to do, and I have rent to pay. With your support, I can afford to spend the time to make more of the work that I enjoy.
